Toby, still putting in the good miles with the family. Excellent!
Tillstar, I've only done a couple of marathons myself, but that sounds like a good plan to me. For my second mara, I focussed on building up the mileage at an easy pace, and getting used to running more than 3 times a week, with maybe one faster run each week, and it seemed to work well. You've got enough time that you probably don't need to worry about a faster run in the week just yet. I only did it to keep off the boredom!
Nice park running Clag and Just Run. And sounds like some excellent hill walking thrown in for good measure
I've also been on holiday, so not much mileage showing for me. Took the new bike round a French forest (Compiegne) a few times, but just at a leisurely pace with Mrs J, not training. Must have been a refreshing week though, did my fastest 6 miler of the year this morning, so I was pleased with that
Robert Yes. I also find it difficult to get my head right for different sorts of training. Either I focus on general fitness, or I focus on running, but rarely can do both very well. I just have to remind myself of my priorities as they vary How are you finding the insanity workouts? I think I'd have loved them when I was younger, but my knees just won't take the impact!
Tillstar Good steady running going on.
TrottingAlong So long as the meet spot included food and drink, that could be a good idea!
Toby You are proving the value of consistent training!
Currently I'm focussing on long runs, and managed a 16 miler this morning. Still run/walk to protect the joints (mostly run!) Then my daughter got back this afternoon and wanted to go for a bike ride and a run!! I did the 10 miles bike ride with her, but only managed 1 mile of her 2 mile run . Then stopped for a nice chat with a lady who was working on a community garden and ended up bringing some strawberry plants home for Mrs Juggler.
