Cool Running | Beginner 10K Program Posted Sunday, 7 September, 1997 First things first: bookmark this page so that you can check on your progress. You can also add daily run reminders to the Cool Running homepage as you roll through the weeks of this training program (to do this, edit your start page preferences). This program contains some speed workouts. (For more information on the types of speed workouts, we lay it all out in "The Runner's Building Blocks"). A few quick notes on how speedwork is described here: The distance in parentheses below fartlek runs includes a mile each of warmup and warmdown, in addition to your fartlek sessions. All other workouts (including the long runs) should be run at an easy training pace -- emphasis on "easy." Finally, the pre-training schedule. The schedule peaks at about 25 miles per week.

Pon un cochinero en tu vida - La Bolsa del Corredor Seguro que muchas veces hemos oído o leído que el rodaje clave del corredor de fondo es la tirada larga. Quizás alguien te haya comentado que para mejorar hay que introducir calidad en tus entrenamientos en forma de series, fartlek, cuestas, etc. Todo esto está muy bien, pero te voy a contar cuál es en verdad el entrenamiento clave del corredor de fondo: el rodaje cochinero. Sí, el rodaje cochinero, ese trote amable propio de jogger de camiseta de algodón y chándal con llaves y monedas en los bolsillos. La única forma de mejorar como corredor es darle estrés al cuerpo. Dentro de las etapas evolutivas de un corredor, normalmente se empieza como jogger. En una segunda etapa, leemos en los blogs lo que hacen otros, hablamos con amigos y llegamos a la conclusión de que debemos introducir variaciones en nuestro entrenamiento. En una tercera etapa, nos proponemos correr una maratón, ya hemos corrido un par de Medias, y empezamos a seguir un plan. ¿Qué es lo que nos ocurre? Sosaku runner
