Hi again, a little about me, I walk, jog, run, cycle and swim, sometimes 7 days a week, others once a fortnight, depending on shifts. Training is always as I feel comfortable, distance and time the same, I run local 10ks as they are not too busy and not overly competitive, so "fun" the same reason I run London, Since 99 I turn up and run to how I feel on the day but next year I thought about following a schedule and setting a target. I have never tried fartlek, tempo runs, hill work, stretching, warm ups etc. never necessary, so this is where I now have a problem!! 9.30 pace gives me about 4.15 finish so how do I work out other timings if that is my marathon pace? Once again thanks for any help
Folks I need a hand. I would like to follow the training plan in the Marathon magazine and would like to run at 9.30 marathon pace, how do I convert the training plan from 50-60% of maximum effort etc. to actual miles per hour!!!
Today, while sorting out a box of junk I found last years runners pack from ex-cel, I had to defer after picking up all the bits, I realised I had timing chip, number etc. so phoned LM for guidance, nice lady said to throw it all in bin as new numbers were issued (checked and yes my number I different than last year) so asked why? she said that each year they select about 39,000 random numbers from about55,000 so not all numbers are available each year?? What?? She then said "sorry" and hung up
