Clive welcome what is your age and training back ground? There are a number of plans around from 12 weeks to 24 weeks if your just starting out the longer the plan the better as you will build in the adaptations to your body needed to get round 26.2 miles. Even after 13/14 marathons the body will still adapt in a different way depending what your after, fast times or just getting round.
MG1 nice running and you will be fine for the marathon as all that long stuff will help, just need to add some speed now and get back to the longer runs
OH that made my eyes water, thankfully I haven't suffered from anything like that, hope you managed to get out for a swim.
Teknik nice MP running hope the ribs are feeling a lot better.
72x25m front crawl and a nice 6 miles around the forest with the pup. All good here.
NN great running off road it will build great strength in the legs for the Crosscountry season as for VLM I paid to do it and properly will, but will do the Crosscountry as part of the training.
Teknik nice 8 mile run, hope the ribs are ok after your 4 miles
Craigie welcome, think the training will help the type 2.
Trici I still think I can improve on some of my times, so never say never To more speed adding the Parkrun and the willingness to hurt over a shorter distance will improve all your running
Did a short swim yesterday but didn't go to the race, the dog gave me a look and I caved in and took him up to the forest and did a hilly tempo run. Today I swam 74x25m front crawl and did a hilly easy 7.6miles, all good here and Buddy is happy
Teknik that's great miles for a week send some heat up North please too bloody cold here.
SC nice miles on the bike must get mine out soon
Trici nice running and your never too old for faster running
NN not fed up with the marathon just the training in winter and then the recovery time, its ok if your Joe's age but it's taking longer to recover every year. I also want to get into the NI cross country team this year for the international championships in Dublin in November, if not this year it will be next year. Sounds like your enjoying the new gym and running
easy run yesterday and shorter than normal, 70x25m front crawl this morning, will do a short swim tomorrow morning before the race tomorrow night.
