not a marathon but a half do you think it is possible to do a half on 3 runs a week.
Sunday run 9/11 miles@ 9 min per mile
2 runs of 5/7 miles doing steady run (although I'veput mileage I do these 2 runs in km efforts warm up then each km@4 1/2 min effort 1-2 mins rec)
I also bike to and from work 5 days a week 12 mile each day
Is interval training the best way to get my speed up? I started running two and a half years ago. My best pace is 9.47 min miles. Time out from March 2012 -June 2012 due to a fractured fibula (tree root whilst running through woods) Had birsitis for around 3 months now but it feels like it is going. I would really love to be able to do an easy run, say 5 to 6 miles at 9min miles. Currently train as follows.
Tuesday 5ish miles including hills
Wednesday 3.2 easy @ 10.25
Thursday 30min track session, intervals plus 800m warm up + 800m cool down
Saturday 3.2 half uphill half down
Sunday Just got back to 7miles flat and slow. Will be doing up to 10
I am running the Barcelona Marathon on the 17th March and then i am down to run the London Marathon ( as long i stay injury free ).
What i would like to know what is the best way to train after the Barcelona marathon leading up to the London Marathon?
I am a experience marathon runner and my PB is 2:38 but i have never done 2 marathons so close together.
This is my question too!
I experimented today by going bait quicker in LR.
Today I did my LR by doing 13 miles with a negative split with second half run at marathon pace (first half about 30-40 secs slower).
Is this a good proxy? Good idea or not advisable?
I should say my question is same as Peter Fenns about three up!
Hello Steve. I'm a 57 year old and I have been running for over 25 years before this was football, in 1991 I did my best London marathon in 2.39.53, half marathons were around 1.17, ten miles in 57 mins (oh those were the day's) my milage was up to 70mile a week then with sessions at Invicta Ek on Tuesday (Speedwork) hills Thursdays with fartlek and LSD also in the mix. I mainly run to keep fit running five times a week long run of 9 miles, some 400 or 800 on grass wednesday's with Heart rate running (150bpm) on other days my mileage is only about 25-28miles per week. My question is why could I run 7min pace easy back then but I now struggle to run 8 min pace now, is it really an age thing? I run on my own and don't race so I'm not really pushing myself against others. My 800's on grass are again Heart rate runs but I do them between 6.30 and 7 min pace this is the target I set myself. Can I get back to 7min miling or under if I raced again.
Regards Roger Hyland.
i have been running now for about 3 years, i have pb's of 10k 38min, hm 1hr 22min, but when it comes to marathons i can't keep the pace up, 3hrs 15min is my pb, how often would i need to train, as on rest days i bike instead.
i'm running abingdon marathon in october and want to give this one my big shot, with my pb times, would you think there is any chance i could get close to the 3hr mark
I'm a 38 years old male who recently took up running again. I ran quite a lot years ago, stopped for a few years (with the odd run here and there) and am considering running a marathon in april.
I've been running three to four times a week for 6 weeks now. I've run 10k in 41min and a scratch and 10 miles in 1h 09 min. What time do your think I should aim for in april? And is my frequency ok, or should I run 5 times a week in order to put down a time that's in accordance with my capacities. I've got a good basic fitness: HB in rest @ 44 bpm; strength exercises and stretching on regular basis.
Thanks for your advice.
