Well done on London ppmace, Dr Dan and good luck Sunday.
When is your 10k, Myox?
I'm just taking it easy for a bit now with shorter easy runs. I'm also doing a weekly 15 miler. My plan is this side of Christmas to run all 5 xc races there are and get 15 miles as a reasonably normal distance as a platform for my London marathon schedule.
Contrary to what does a job for most, my problems started when I upped my mileage and started doing lots of easy miles. I took the decision in May 2015 to dramatically change my approach and followed the half marathon training plan of the Furman first principle. Much less running but everything done faster.
Within 6 weeks I got my first 70% wava and by August a 5 mile pb followed by 10k and parkrun.
I then followed the marathon schedule over winter and just completed another half schedule. I alsodropped some weight going from about 11,10 to just under 11 stone.
I'm probably most proud of my half (85.03) and marathon Times (3.08) as they were done off mileage of about 28 and 33 respectively per week.
It's not for everyone, but it seems to work for me.....so far.
I m bored so thought I just pop in and brag. This year I've pbd 5k x 2, 5 mile x 1, 10k x 2, half marathon x 2, 20 miles (first attempt), marathon x 1.
I have a10 miler in December to hopefully collect a clean sweep.Until last Aututm all my pbs were over 2 years old and I just managed to stop my half pb having it's 3rd birthday my getting a pb 3 days out in February.
The last few weeks I've pbd in 5 miles,10k and most recent at the Peterborough half. Had hoped to get to a parkrun but doesn't seem likely for a while now.
