5 mile was the most I went and it wasn’t often. I focused on 400m/800m intervals. I done Kenyan hills(give them a google) and a lot of weighted circuits always including front squats. Felt really strong on day 3 thanks to the circuits.
Should’ve been clearer. Kenyan hills are a type of hill session that you continuously run up and down a hill at threshold pace for a set time. Don’t need to head to Kenya to do them thankfully, it’s just named that as it’s kenyan marathoners that do them.On a general note you'll benefit from training at the altitude of your current location as Lympstone is obviously at sea level. The downside is that UK winters can be cold and wet. It's a factor to consider.
I completely get that but re read the 1st response to your original post and I think that answers your question.
I followed Sean Lerwill’s pass the PRMC program and you run no more than 5 miles on that mate, instead it focuses more on interval training.
The more opinions you get surely the more confused you’ll get as 100 different people have probably trained a 100 different days!!
