The original HADD thread is no longer showing up on the forum. It's still there (http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/training/hadd-training-plan/181933.html) but JohnnBike's inital message has gone (and his other posts) and I guess this is related to the thread's vanishing. I've pm'd JohnnyBike.
If we need a new place, then we can start here...The main HADD links:http://www.angio.net/personal/run/hadd.pdfhttp://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?board=1&id=2396680&thread=2375989http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?board=1&id=2357345&thread=2357345http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?thread=134124&page=0http://can.milesplit.com/discussion/topics/90162
Dr Dan, a new thread with all your links above might be a good thing I got to the old thread via a Search so maybe pop a note on the last page directing peeps here?
Andi, I guess we should continue on the original thread for now, in case the problem resolves. I can bump this message up for a few days ... at least the link to the HADD thread is in the first message, which saves seeking it out via the back door routes ... and also any new/curious Hadders can find it. If nothing changes, we can organise a switch-over.
Have I missed something?
New thread? Replaces old one - does everyone know?

Hi Johnny and welcome aboard
As Dr.Dan says in the first post we seem to have 'lost' the original thread from the training forum but you can reach it here. That said, the other thread was quite large and we may start a new one if the issue doesn't get fixed.
I'm a relative newbie to both running and HADDing and one thing I have learnt is that no, there is no simple short cut. Maybe pop into the orig thread and say hi, they are a great bunch and helped me a great deal.
Oh, and like you, running slower to run faster seems like the best way to do things.
lol Johnny, I'm no Joe either though have just been putting his HR into my spreadsheet to work out his HR%.
I did make the mistook of HADDing using WHR% for about 3 months and things looked good before it was pointed out that I was running too fast and at too high a % of HRmax.
Don't worry about speed, I'm slowly learning that and am slow (already well into my 50's btw so dont fret) but yes, there are some 'Joes' in the thread and all are happy to offer advice.
How do you currently train? whats a typical week pace and mileage, HR wise? When I started to try and run properly back in Feb I couldn't run more than 1-1.5 miles without a walk break and today I'm reasonably happy jogging for a couple of hours and only walking on the steeper inclines.
Johnny2323 - welcome.
Have you downloaded the HADD doc (link is first one in Dr Dan's first post).?
That will give you all the basics to start - have a read and any questions feel free to ask. Might not have all the answers but will give it a go.
Johnny - your'e welcome!
I can only give my experience with HADD training to you. Each one of us will have a different outcome. I am 54 and started running again in 2010/11 after a 30yr break! I followed traditional TP's for a HM in 2012 - kept getting injured, put it down to my age (still thought I was 20!! - and still do!!). Completed race and then got injured again when re-started training! Looked around for something different and found HADD and never looked back. I didn't really start properly until 2012. It seems to me you are starting at a higher level than I did - so to compare I was starting at around 15-18 miles a week and keeping everything below 75%MaxHR. It did take a long time before I saw any improvement in pace - 9 weeks by which time I was doing about 25 miles a week - still all at less than 75%. So a quick fix it is not, but the more time on your feet the quicker the results (as long as you don't overtrain). It wasn't until week 16 that I started really knocking off some decent time (for me) by which time I was completing about 28-30 miles a week with one run a week at subLT (below 80%). I was only out 4 times a week but tried to make them 'quality' runs at 60 mins+. If you have some PB targets coming soon in races already entered then forget about them, re-schedule for next year and get a decent base phase in for the next 3 months or so - can't really put a definitive time on it as you may make good progress depending on mileage, current level of fitness, etc. The biggest problem you WILL face is patience - if you can crack that then you will benefit from HADD training as I did. As most people on the thread know I was seriously injured earlier this year in a car accident so have been unable to train this summer - I am getting back into it now but it is the only style of training I would consider (at my age!! ha-ha). I've tried to tell it like it is - there are far more experienced runners on this thread than me and all will try and help I'm sure.
So to sum up - you can create your'e own plan but initially keep everything below 75% MaxHR or 5K pace plus 3 minutes whichever is more comfortable to start. If the 5K + 3min pace takes you above 75% then don't worry too much just don't do bulk mileage on it to start. Once the pace starts improving at 75% or the HR starts dropping at the 5K + 3min pace then you can re-assess but it won't happen next week or the week after - again in HADD's document he talks about minor changes every 3 weeks - but remember that was Joe doing a lot more miles.
Hope it helps - I am NOT a trainer and not as experienced as some people on this thread so I hope others can either add or indeed disagree with what I have written
Good post BeDe, I agree completely.
When I first started Hadding, my 75% runs were slower than 10:30mm, so I was happy when someone told me the 5k+3min rule. 14 months later my 75% runs are under 8:30mm - note, 14 months later.
I haven't done any speed-work for over a year now, but I have PB'd at 1m/3k/5k/10k/HM and Mara.
I run everyday, about 70mpw, including 2 subLTs at 80-83%, and I would (now) object to describing Hadd training as "slow running".
I have just started HADDing and these guys have been really helpfull do I would stick around if I were you. As BeDe says, patience is the hardest part of this process for me. The other thing I am finding a bit diffiucult to get my head around is the fact that a run on one day can give you different results to the same run the next day i.e. you may run the same route at the same pace but your heart rate could differ by 5 or 6 bpm. I am slowly coming to terms with it and accept that, as BeDE says, it could take a few months for some consistent results.
Hope you are all well.
Well 3 weeks to go for the Loch Ness marathon all my training has been geared towards this race. No speed work just Hadding for the last 7/8 weeks, its a risk I know, but if it don't work will try a different approach next time.
here is a sample week-
Mon 7 miles sub 70% MHR
Tues 12 miles 10 at 80-85% MHR
Thurs 12.5 miles at sub 70%
Fri 12 miles 10 at 80-85%
Sat 3 miles at 70-75%
Sunday 20 miles at 73% ave MHR
Give or take a few miles ave 65-68 per week
Last 20 tomorrow, Hurrah.
Johnny I use the HR monitor only for marathon races - the beauty of Hadd is that it gives you a firm idea of what "MP" is (based on the subLT runs). For shorter races I just go on feel / past stats / WAVA analysis. In terms of a plan, just do as much as you can with a 75% ceiling, i.e. slow down if you blip above it. When the mileage starts to hurt, make one or two days a recovery of 3-4 miles at 70%max ceiling. Parkruns are fine to break the boredom but there is a strong argument that any anaerobic activity retards your aerobic progression. Once you get to 50 mpw for a few weeks, then add one subLT at 80%max.
Roy that's an impressive weekly plan - have you pushed your subLTs up beyond 83% then? Hope the last 20 went ok, and enjoy the taper madness.
Fifth 20 miler for me, ran with a 75%max lid, and just about managed it on fairly even splits.
ran 21 miles today ( planned 20) comfortably in 3.10 ave 73% MHR.
I am able to hold pace/ HR at 136bpm (85%MHR) for 90 mins the plan is too x2 that ,and I will only know if I can do that on race day!!!
How is your training going?
your also doing LN I believe?
Hi to you all
Good controlled long run Roy, and that's good news on the subLT front. I've got 7 weeks left until Frankfurt, all going fine here
