Best laid plans......
I'm looking to follow a VLM marathon training plan and haven't decided which one yet. I like Shades' plan, but also like the ASICS email updates and run logging capability.
The FIRST program also makes sense, but before I decide are there any others I can stick in the pot? I've seen posts saying that the ASICS automated plans are not accurate or should I favour HeartRate over Pace.
My plan is a 4 hr (ish) VLM, with 4 runs a week and a couple of other X-training activities (general gym activities) and like emails to remind / prompt me and an online progress tracking program.
Is there an online program where I can add my own plan based on Shades or similar?
Anyone suggest a suitable approach or throw more programs/methods into the mix?
Have you had a look at the Garmin ready plans on this (i.e. runners world) web site?
I've used these for half marathons and they download onto your Garmin, so all the speeds & duration are stored in the watch ready for use.
Thanks, I've looked at these also, and it's great to get these onto the Garmin, but I can then adjust these in line with another program if that's a better route (perhaps Shades' plan).
Just looking for feedback on what's worked / or not worked for others before I decide and commit to a plan.
Thanks for the info..
I'm a Shades fan. It's always worked out well for me.
