I was just about to agree with Debbo's comment about being 6 in '65 then realised that old age has b*******d up my maths. OMG - I was dancing the night away at the disco. :-(

Hi there folks, I am doing an all day training course on endurance running on Sunday. There will be practical sessions and talks on different aspects of running. I have to do some homework for it and have to fill out a typical weeks worth of training. Not sure if I have a typical week but wonder if I should put down a weeks training before a marathon or just do this weeks log.

Today I did an easy cross-training session at the gym and tried to really work my hamstring which I am glad to feel is getting alot stronger as the weeks go by.

Jane - sounds intersting ... make sure you remember all the good bits to let us know!!

Can you not do both weeks ??

Its organised through the SAL, held in Aberdeen so easy for me to attend. I also had to do some homework on interval sessions and how to fast and slow runners would get equal benefit out of certain sessions. I will spend a couple of hours on it tomorrow. If I learn anything I will certainly pass it on.

I think I will make up an average week of training and combine both weeks.

Lovely day today, cool and sunny. Out for a 10 miler off-road which took me over 2 hours.

I used a very scientific method of choosing a typical training week, I randomly picked a page from my training log.

6 miles today, with 3 miles at intended MP.

Yesterday did one very short interval session (first one for ages)

No r*nning for me at the weekend, as I felt I had a cold coming on. Coddled myself, got loads of rest and sleep, and I'm feeling much better today. May try a couple of miles after badminton tonight.

Oh dear .Havn't done any training since the Cabbage Patch 8 days ago. Does digging the dahlias up count as cross training? (It was raining)
25/10/2004 at 15:38
waffle was it raining when you were digging up the dahlias? I don't mind running in the rain in fact it can be very refreshing and no-one else daft enough to be out.

Out tonight and managed 5.5 miles and felt good. Getting very cold outside, only 2 degrees this morning.

Hippo - What happened at Dublin? Did you really fall apart, or did you have to walk after 16 miles sometimes? I'm sure by FLM and Lochaber you'll be on sub-5 form - I think you need some of those really long base pace runs (that aren't marathons!) in training.
27/10/2004 at 08:18
EP I am planning to do most of my long runs at 12.30 pace but I will be confident about doing sub 5 hours as long as I get the correct training done.

PH well done at Dublin, didn't you get your second fastest time for a marathon there. I think BT is definetly paying off for you by increasing your endurance.

debbo
yes i really did fall apart big time
i squeezed the toothpaste tube too hard and i thought i was going to have to walk the last 10 miles



might be that id done a mara 3 weeks before?




Ill let you know after stevenage
27/10/2004 at 09:33
debbo, you are 100% right
i always skimp on the long runs
27/10/2004 at 10:10
My target this week is to do sub 5 at Snowdonia. My previous best on this course is 5.20ish and I ran easy as I had another race the following day. But the weather is a big factor on this course, we shall see.

Jane - I've started preparing my training programme, scribbled it on the plane home from Dublin, my first 100mpw is between Xmas & New Year as I figure I can sleep in between runs as I'm on holiday!
27/10/2004 at 11:41
Shades are you planning to go out twice a day, and do two long runs back to back?


I did 6 slow off-road miles this morning. Felt hard, must have been the faster mile I did last night as the end of my run.
