Interestingly, looking at the Coach Parry Bronze and Bill Rowan training programmes, my planned ultra (CTS Sussex) and marathon (London) are close in time (one week early, and same weekend) to the suggested races to be run as training runs - but the other way around.
I've not been doing any strength training. Any suggestions what I ought to do (within the limits of what's possible to do with home weights - I'm not about to join a gym)?
Mr K: I would have liked to do that one but didn't feel I'm ready yet. I did run into work and back yesterday after 26 miles the day before (and I did the same the day after Dymchurch marathon) and that involves uphill then downhill, in both directions, but 11 miles for morning and evening together, not 33!
