Follow the progress of Alexandra_S, our sub-4:00 hopeful
Introducing the fourth member of our ASICS Super Six 2011 … Alex (aka Alexandra_S)
Alex will be using our sub-4:00 Garmin-ready schedule as a basis for her training and will be mentored by Steve Smythe directly on this thread (starting December 20). She’ll be posting her training progress and be receiving advice directly from the ASICS PRO Team experts live on this thread so make sure you check back regularly to find out how she gets on.
Good luck Alex!
Ohhh I shall watch your thread with interest and if I can work out how to get my 305 to accept the plan I will try and join in the fun.
Best of luck.
Sub 4 in Paris - sounds good to me . And the cake sounds even better! Rocket fuel...
Good luck with the training, I'll be following you with interest.
Hi- I'm running Lochaber aiming for sub-4 ( done it once...........just). My race is on 10th april,too.
I tend to use a FIRST 3 day per week plan, but am planning to go up to at least 4 days running per week now, plus perhaps one crosstraining session- I think suddenly trying to move up to 5 days per week was my undoing the first time I tried a marathon. It will be interesting to see how you get on.
Am a sub 4.00 hopeful so will be reading your thread with great interest. 2011 will be my first marathon. have started the FIRST 3 plus 2 plan, Ran 10.5 miles in the snow yesterday - it was a great run (if a bit slow) as the roads were very quiet and beautiful scenes.
I'm so chuffed you got through, it was so nice to meet you at Birmingham. I've managed to get a place for London through our club draw so I will be following your training exactly to try and smash a sub 4 at London.
Well Done Alex!!!!
I had a feeling you'd be the one to get through, you looked really comfortable when we did those 9 minute miles with Bud in Birmingham.
I'm already signed up for Edinburgh a month after Paris, so will be following your trials and tribulations closely.
Hi Alli - and thanks! Looking forward to seeing you on here over the next four months then!
By way of update, training began bright and early this morning - I'd already signed up for a spin class at the gym, and slid just coming out the front door, so hit the treadmill for a steady 2 mile warm up beforehand.
I've printed off the sub-4:00 schedule and am now fitting runs of various lengths and descriptions into the next week - the 7 miler is currently very appropriately positioned on Boxing Day.
Tomorrow night I'm heading to Mile End stadium with my running club for an icy track session...
Knees are ok but legs aching today - felt like I was running in sand, only colder.
Good luck with the training - any tips and comments on track/speed sessions will be great as that is my weak spot.
