40 mins, p&d has only 1 to 2 quality sessions a week and only tests out MP about once every 3 to 4 weeks in the long run which is more than enough for me especially with the increased mileage.
I agree with PMJ, the schedules do look a little daunting at first but once you get into them and the endurance improves I reckon it's a manageable plan.
I followed the 70-85 plan, something I wouldn't have dreamed attempting a couple of years ago.
Your plan with all that speed work would break me.
Fishy - I reckon the slightly less intense approach to P&D helped me achieve the higher mileage in training but I do wonder if this had a negative effect on my race with not enough hard miles.
Also the lack of racing may have had an impact, I hadn't raced since May, perhaps I wasn't 'match fit'.
The last four miles were tough and I think I lacked the edge through no regular racing to knuckle down and see it through. I wasn't used to that level of discomfort.
The last 4 cost me about 1.30 mins and it frustrates me but I know I should be pleased with a pb.
I'm never happy!
Sorry to hear you're carrying a few niggles, be patient.
A bit of cycling for me over the past couple of days, about 50 which is easy on a tredder. Also had a little run today, 2.6 mile and my legs said enough's enough.
I'll try them out again on Sunday.
