JMC - I've PMd you the M6s' email addy
having said that, it might be out of date, cos they haven't replied to my last one...

clairster - no probs, there are bound to be clashes with other events - there's also the Old County Tops fell race - plus it's the last weekend of the footy season!

Laid low with manflu at the moment - will give me chance to solve JMC's differential equation. 

As for PPP, I don't need to laugh at myself when I'm surrounded by the clowns on here.

At least the thread appears to have sprung back into life.

DTS - Christleton does represent the best 5k PB opportunity of the year (all being equal). I also feel there are other possible helpers who may be doinf it.

However, I would like to help out and may be able to go up from there. So, please put me down as a possible for legs 3,4 or 5. If I come up I would probably aim to do 2 back to back legs. It might be quite good to do a leg with someone else doing Christleton and share driving. Just a thought.

BHB- one of the students in my year 11 class commented earlier that when a boy/man has flu "Why is it always Manflu why can't it just be flu?". I think that growing up in the current generation it must have an emasculating effect to be branded a wimp for genuinely being ill. We really need to asses our casual acceptance of this detrimental terminology, if not for ourselves, then for the young men of this country.

Get well soon though, at your time of life OldManFlu is not to be sneezed at and these things need to be taken seriously.


Of course for JMC it is and always will be manflu

Tuesday/Thursday marathon training sessions.

For a number of reasons the group that attend track on Tuesdays and Thursdays is no longer as big or as consistent as it was. However there are still 4 or 5 of us (Kev, Matt, Big Phil, Martin) that attend quite regularly, that are all planning on running Manchester Marathon and are all of a similar pace.

For this reason I am proposing an alternative Tues/Thursday schedule that is more orientated towards those training for a spring marathon and thus more suitable for the regular Tues/Thurs attendees.

I have pinched this from this book http://www.amazon.com/Hansons-Marathon-Method-Renegade-Fastest/dp/1934030856 which is the approach/schedule I am following this year.

The general thrust of the schedule is that you reduce the length of your longer runs slightly but do them at the end of quite a hard weeks training and specifically one or two days after a longish tempo run, thus simulating the effect of running the second half of a marathon.

The Tuesday sessions start off with 7 weeks of speed sessions which then convert to speed endurance. The Thursday sessions are all tempo runs which will be run at marathon pace (6:20 to 6:30), with the distance gradually increasing up to 10miles. As we get closer to April the Thursday sessions are going to take longer than an hour but I suggest we still start at 7 and just get back a bit later.

It would be good if we could get a few more people to participate.

I'll try to post the sessions here but they are in a table so it could go pear shaped.

Well thats pants

The sessions  don't look too dis similar to what me, UB, GBM and FOAR have been doing for the last 12 months

Tuesday sessions start at 10 miles and peak at 15 miles, on the MW.

Thursday sessions on the track range from 1 mile reps, 2 miles reps, 22 laps fast,slow and shorter stuff nearer the marathon.

Last nights session worked out at 8 miles including a couple of warm up cool down miles which avg over all 6.45min/mile so not a bad session.

11/01/2013 at 13:55

That's a good idea JMC. I may join some of these, especially if I have a good 4V and decide to run a marathon.  I'd like to get back to the track and train as a group - it's hard work trying to do 10 mile tempos at that pace on your own.

PPP, my 10 mile tempo route is quite hilly and run at about that pace.  Georges Rd, Didsbury Rd and the cheap part of the Heatons past Sunnybank.  As you have been stalking me you will know I try to do these from work on Tuesday and Thursday.  Won't be doing these next week as I am in London most of it.

11/01/2013 at 14:04
BHB - yes I was going to comment that two 10 mile tempos might be better of as 12 with 8 at MP (Effort) and 8 with 5 at HMP (effort). But that is quite picky, two 10 mile tempo runs is a good basis for any week. But as you say, quite hard to do!

My only reservation about theses sessions is that I couldn't stand running around a track for 6+ miles at MP. I would quite like to do some group hill sessions.

And yes, I do know roughly your route as it starts and finishes in the retirement district!
11/01/2013 at 14:49

PPP - Tempo runs would not be round the track, we would just meet there, we could include some tempo/hills, eg the St Mary's Way and NZ rd loop or possibly replace the speed endurance sessions with some hill reps.

J8 - really need the speed sessions to be on the Tue and the tempo's on the Thur so that people are going into long runs at the weekend with quite tired legs. A 8 to 10 mile tempo is going to be harder on your legs than the speed sessions. That is the whole point of the schedule
