I'm a bit confused by the training plan instructions (maybe I'm being dense!)
Does this mean the 600m sections are at 10k pace? Or the parts that are not intervals are at 10k pace? Or does it mean that the 600m sections are 8/10 effort and the rest of the run to make up 4miles is 10k pace?
Also, why is the overall distance in miles and the intervals in metres? Makes it difficult to track on a phone app GPS where you need to specify either km or miles (I know that I can convert it, but it would seem to make sense to keep the units consistent within the plan, wouldn't it?)
i am pretty good shape, ran a marathon last year and have maintained about 65 miles per month on average mostly shorter runs 5-7 miles.. have been varying runs with hill work and tempi runs to keep it interesting.. i am doing the great north and nottingham this year so am starting this week with the 12 week sub 2 - pb is 2:09.. any thoughts on how to vary the fartlek sessions - last year when i did my mar than i downloaded a program on my garmin - can't find them now i think they have been taken down so its manual programming the watch...
