That's right, the crowds make all the difference...I did the Gt North Run in 2006 and the London Marathon in 2007 and I was deeply puzzled by never covering the 'race' distance in training.

I can tell you though, the plans work, just follow them as closely as you can and don't worry too much if you miss a day or two here and there. It isn't like saving up to buy something, you don't need the exact amount,  you need to be close.

The furthest I ran in marathon training was 20 miles, but in one week near the end I did over 60 miles in total. I had to stop for a rest when I realised that.

I am doing a half marathon in two weeks and have been training regular 18 miles per week of three runs I got an injury four weeks ago and have been unable to run but have been out twice a week on my bike 20 miles per week. I am injury free now can any one recommend a training plan I should adopt for two weeks prior to race I don't want to burn my self out the two weeks prior and over train and I struggle in the run

new to all this but here goes

 what does 'slow', easy', timed', 'nothing', 'steady' all mean

 isn't steady the same as easy - any comments would be much appreciated

I think slow and easy are just that (around 11:00 min/mile) and steady is a bit faster (under a 10min/mile). Not sure though. I'm doing the half marathon in under 2:00 Garmin schedule and just rely on my Garmin to beep at me if I'm going too slow/fast. Good luck!

I've just done the bath half and have the Chester half in 10 weeks I don't want to start over but don't know what is the best to do to increase speed as I know I can do the distance.
