1967 wasnt bad either :-))

Still on the injury bench with a couple of non too successful 2 milers under my belt ... referral to Docs on 11 Nov so hopefully it will be a very slow but sure climb to the marathon??
Jane I am the same difficult to find a sub5 plan for a slow pepe .. or do they class 5 hours as a beginner???

Maybe we should challenge the bods at RW to do something useful with our subs and come up with one :-)

Shall I type some rude words to get their notice ?

There seem to be (as this thread shows) a lot of people at a similar standard who want to aim for sub5 - very few of us I would say are beginners ... there is a gap in the market !!

You are all babies compared to ancient old me.

I won't tell you how old I was in 1967.

Jane - maybe we should ask for age-adjusted times!
21/10/2004 at 21:36
Good idea debbo.

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.
