I had been fretting about how far to go this week as Sunday was messed up (missed Cranleigh, ran slow slow 15 mi round Richmond Park) and I had been thinking about going long on Wednesday this week. Won't bother now, but will go medium (10-11), with focus on marathon pace or quicker for 4-7 of those miles. Thus I can become a test case. Only problem is cannot clone an identical me to do the long running. Bugger.

Think I would agree with the article's aims on balance - there's nothing more upsetting than starting a marathon (or similar long distance racing) only to find that the legs are "dead".

Hippo, what are mitochondria? the only chondria I've got is preceded by hypo....
I'll read this when I've got the chance, (in the time saved with fewer long runs - is this not the famed taper?) these articles are quite thought provoking, though

Back again - just skimmed it - doesn't exactly square with the week-before 15 in the RW schedules, does it?

A lot of the stuff about 'tapering' I've picked up on other threads follows broadly similar principles, steadily reducing the mileage, concentrating on quality 'speed' work.(in my case, I use word very loosely. dunno about the physical jerks session tho..)

Makes do the 'homework' we skipped as well, I notice!

Thanks for the response - I posted the last one before I got back to the updated thread.
In all living cells? Knew I didn't have any...

If the taper gets any further back it will start before the RW Schedules do!

Confused now Taper starts 2 weeks before, nah three weeks, nah four weeks... need wall to beat head with to stop confusion!
