Great effort SRM ..I love it when a plan comes together...I've decided to adopt a combined Hadd/Lydiard approach and my plan over the next 9weeks is to work up to a 100mile week (all at 145bpm or less) I got this from Barsnley Runner on another thread.. If that doesn't start to build an aerobic base then nothing will... I'll reassess then and see if I follow the rest of Lydiard and look at a block of hill running for strength followed by a sharpening phase. GG
Just back from Manchester.... Enjoyed the run except for bitterly cold, wet conditions (though would take this over heat any day!).
Ran of HR today 160bpm through 13miles taking me through in 1:30. Picked up to 168/170 up to 22 then gave it all I had to finish in 3:03 (pretty pleased after detonating at London last week. Deffo felt the benefit of running to HR (thanks Brian) and felt strong at the end going past tons of people (despite still having heavy legs from London).
2weeks well earned rest now before HADDING commences.... Target 2:49.59 at Dublin in October !!
