Hi All, Haven't been on here in ages. I'm doing the Manchester Marathon and hoping to go sub 3. I ran 37.16 10k at the weekend so hoping will convert nicely to sub 3, I did this PB of just base training preparing for P&D plan.
MM26, I agree with Snell the key is building endurance not speed IMO. I'm using P&D 55 to 70 plan to try crack this, I'm doing Reading Half in March to see where I'm at.
Chrissi - consistent training will get fit for this marathon
Agentginger - wow 8mile tempo run at lunch, must have a nice boss
Furney78 - Wow some good races in there, I will be just be doing Reading Half and all the XC for Clapham chasers. I found that last year I did hardly any races using P&D and I was flying by the time the marathon came round.
Ap66 - I agree with you consistent training is the way forward do not get hung up on miles..... Listen to your body 1st and then follow the plan if you can.
skd14 - Yes I hear that Hull is fast and flat. I live in London so would be a long journey for 5k
