Discussion in 'Training Methods and Diet Suggestions' started by arny01, Oct 15, 2017.
Just want to ask, keep seeing about hill sprints but there isn’t really any hills to run on around me? I live in Northern Ireland so sounds odd but where I live most are flat roads the odd small hill in the road every now and then but nothing steep so is there an alternative or next best thing to hill sprints?
Same thing with me, But luckily enough the treadmills at my gym go up to a 30% incline.
Was going to say I have treadmill at home not sure what the incline is but do you just put it up and then slow it right down for 30 seconds then back up?
Pretty much yeah
I’ll give it a go!
Where’d you get the vest from? Looked about but most seemed quite expensive!
Used the same one very good vest and worth the money you pay
They seem to be all sold out at the moment bar the 5kg one
I got mine from eBay, not 100% whether they’re real or not but it works all the same
Hey arny just a few questions,
1. Would you say your prmc training plan is aplicable for prac.
2. What if any alterations would you make to it.
3. Also a question on diet. I always put in about 3 -4 solid weeks training and then tend to get run down. I have a feeling my calorific intake isint big enough as i dont have a huge appitite but try to stuff myself. What foods/meals would you recommend.
4. What would be good steeplechase preparation.
I appriciate that you might not know alot about the paras so if anyone else especially anyone who has expirience with the paras it would be greatly apprieciated. Also sorry for my spelling spell check has stopped working for some reason and i pretty much rely on it.
@arny01 same question but for the lead up to the prmc instead please?
Are you asking for taper advice in the last week??
I normally run a lot of distance with hill work all over the South Downs and have never seen drastic progression. But training for the POC I've started incorporating shorter runs but increased pace, the Gym sessions and more importantly the hill sprints into my routine. I went for my first long run in about a month today and every single climb I came too I could feel the improvements from the hill sprint sessions. It's worked an absolute treat!
Fantastic news!! Glad to hear it!!
@arny01 Could you please make an example of what you would do in the week leading up to POC i.e tapering? Cheers
