Follow Wardi as he trains for a sub-3:00 marathon
<scoobs plonks herself into chair whilst munching on a galaxy bar>
Best of luck Wardi. Really pleased you got selelcted. Especially as I notice we share the same (less serious) weaknesses.. Therefore I shall have a little tipple on your behalf this evening. :0)
Good luck Wardi!
Wardi - I've just had a look at the schedule they've given you.
I'd be interested to know the reasoning behind starting you off on a long run of 12 miles when you've already clocked up a 20 in this marathon training. It seems the first few weeks cut back your mileage drastically. Has it been explained why? Is the schedule based on where your training is currently?
Wardi - well done on being selected for RW training advice.
As BR noted the training seems to be taking you back a step. I would be interested to know the reason why too. Is this individual training advice or a generic schedule for you to follow?
I hope you achieve your sub 3!
Believe me Wardi, I'll be lurking. And I trust that you are going to do some damage to those HM and 10k times on the way. They are overdue.
BR has a serious question, and I'd like to see it considered by the expert adviser. If he is not proud, he may even tailor the schedule to suit the athlete, as I cannot believe that he has already studied your personal training records in preparation for your new schedule.
(I'll take the original schedule as my focus, as I'm a slacker at the moment.)
Wardi - I've no doubt that he is a well respected and successful coach. It just struck me as odd that your first 3 weeks are 41, 49 and 55 miles, when you've just done 30 in 2 days.
Is the point of the schedule for someone aiming for a sub 3 to download it onto their Garmin and start from a base of (say) 35 mpw or is it specifically aimed at Wardi of Tadcaster
Do you intend to stick to next week to the letter or will you be tempted to run longer than it says?
