Did 5m in the cold last night to make up for Sunday. Track session tonight.
Re training plans, there’s a lady on this forum named Shades and she done over a 100 marathons. A very nice and helpful person too. I have followed her 3 days a week program (not hard core at all) twice and it’s very good; lots of people have said the same. She has other plans too should you require them.
Her thread is called “Shades Marathon Training”, if you wanted to get a plan from her I’m sure she’ll send it to you. I don’t want you leaving and joining her thread though lol.
I’m following a weekly schedule as put together by the coach at my club. Building a base until end of the year and then a proper schedule in the New year. He wants me to do 5 runs a week in the new year but my body won’t take that and nor will my head! In previous attempts I have cobbled up something myself on 3 or 4 runs a week. I’m a bit apprehensive about my schedule as it doesn’t allow for cutbacks or illness/injury. Usually I like to be a little bit ahead of the game to allow for such situations. I suppose I have to trust him.
I did park run on Saturday but chickened out on Sunday as it was raining heavily.
Hi Washwood, yeh it’s great when it is over. I was speaking to one of my club members last night who has been struggling with a calf problem for nearly two years but he has done a 70 min HM and 10M in 50.30 in his time. He said, that he used to do two track sessions a week and one was of 200m x 20 reps !!! I think that was just finish me!
