Already started Pip. Have been hitting the track for some 800 m reps and have got a 10 miler om board, plus a couple of 6 mile runs. So back into it again. Juggling those 2 schedules about are fine. I know them.. As I say, I like the way Hal Higdon works.
Hi Pip. Hal Higdons schedules are great. He keeps it easy and simple. I also like the way Matt Fitzgerald works !! Some revolutionary ideas, but more technical. Good though. Don't feel you have to stick religiously to a plan. Use them as templates. However if you have the time to stick to one that is fine too obviously. I have actually covered a little bit on this in the book I am writing. I feel that it can add a little more pressure if you think you have to stick to a schedule. We all have other things going on and some people feel if they have to do a run on a particular day, and they can't it can add a little more unneccesary stress. It really doesn't matter. schedules can be juggled around to suit the individual. We are not professional athletes. They can do this.
Anyway. How are you getting on. Just started your schedule ? .
