Thinking

 So back to the drawing board. I am going to start hill repeats again and begin a new training program. I was unsuccessful in my 5K attempt to break 24...not even close....I will go ahead and train for a 10K and mix some 5K runs in as I go along. I will use an abbreviated schedule. I've come to learn that long training phases bring burn out so I am looking at no more than 12 weeks then prob a three week rest like I did this last training cycle. Today I felt really strong and ready to begin another cycle. The goal is to break 50 in the 10K.
 2xlong hill(.4). Peace!

Sounds like a good plan! The rest between cycles is ESSENTIAL! I am so looking forward to mine.

Hill repeats will be a great start! Looks like things are coming back together for you!!

Sometimes you just have to go back and readjust the plan. I agree - sometimes those plans are just too many weeks long! You'll get that 50 min!

Sounds like a nice plan!

Good plan. Train for the 10k and the 5k goal will certainly come your way as well. Good luck!

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
