19 and a half weeks to go...what plans are you peeps going to follow?

Hiya people! Haven't been checking this recently. 

Training for me starts the 30th. Hope the weather picks up a bit - it's been miserable!

At least this one's meant to be flat.

Hi Cat

I've got 6 more weeks of Hadd base training, then I'm hoping to be fit enough for the 12 week P&D 55-70m.

What is Hadd training?

I probably don't need a full 16 weeks because I've got a good baseline, but that's what I've always done, and I want to squeeze in 5 long (18+) runs in alternative weeks, so that basically gives me a 4 week buildup to 18.

I must say I'm feeling very unfit compared to the start of last marathon's training. I hope it goes away!

There's a thread on RW and another one on Fetch, but it's basically training by Heart Rate - specifically, getting the body to run at lower HRs and thus improve aerobically. I'm hoping that with a better base I can survive the next mara without slowing/bonking out...again...

Hi all, i'm in for Frankfurt too! Scary much - the 18 week mark has crept up fast!

17 weeks to go. How's the training going, peeps?

First-week long run (8 miles) down this weekend and felt pretty good. Had been a bit worried about training through the summer but it's looking like i won't have to

Well done Jenny: won't worry or won't train?

Won't worry, since there doesn't seem to e much summer yet... Definitely need to train!
How's everyone getting on?

Another week of slow plodding, pace controlled by the heart rate monitor, but managed to break 50 miles last week.

Wow, so you're not just training up to Frankfurt I take it then?

I ran just shy of 20 miles last week, so not quite in the same league but pretty pleased - hadn't added it up before!

Lol Jenny - I am an aerobic mess and the only way I'm going to cure it is doing lots of slow mileage. This will be my seventh attempt at a sub-4 (I'm not kidding). This time I'm leaving nothing to chance...

Hiya! Been watching Wimbledon so not been on the forums much! Good week for me - not too many niggles. I think I clocked 33 miles, which was more than I'd planned. Next weeks' a funny one - I have a 10K at the weekend, so not sure whether to take a cut back week in terms of long runs, or run home from the race, or make up the long run some other day in the week. Hmm...

Cat - my vote is warm up, race, easy jog home

100 days to go peeps. Eek! Doesn't sound long at all!
