I'm a big fan on Don Oliver's programme - if you can find his book "Make sure of your Comrades medal" it's worth picking up... Otherwise Nikki's Alsoran website puts up Don's schedule each month... Alsoranrunners.info which also is a great place to look around for first timers...
Does anyone know where to get this book as a physical one? while I love my kindle some books make a lot more sense holding in hand.
I already have the relentless forward book, the plans in that will have to do otherwise.
I started to look at the 'relentless forward' training plan and I am surprised it only really contains 1 marathon and 1 run of 30 miles.
Looking at 50-100 miles on 50 miles a week.
Depending on the ballot I will do london or pick somewhere else. It's a good way to get to 26 miles in company.
When entering Davos a couple if years ago I ran Paris within 80s of my PB but got injured 2 weeks after, this time I will have to be just more careful not to go too hard.
