Cheers Dan can't seem to get on to the coaching site via any of the links though, sounds an interesting concept from reading the thread
Sound like good things to investigate, I love my off road running and try to do some at least once a week, Mud is fun.
HADD is new i will have to reserch that, same for maffetone 180.
I live in the shropshire hills so i spend my time trying to find flat runs most of the time lol.
Apprciate the advice guys, I very much a 10k - 1/2 Marathon runner coming from a track background as a youngster (I'm 41 now) so the step to Marathon is a big one and I want to do it right.
HI all returning to the site after a long time away.
I'm due to start my 16 week Marathon training in Feb 13 for the Edinburgh Marathon. I ma a 1.25 - 1.35 half marathon runner that had a little bit to long of a break this year !
So I really need a good no nonsense base training schedule to get the miles back in the legs and lose the extra 12 pounds before i hit the Marathon training.
Theres a lot out there i know so I'm really interested in what you guys do over the winter to get that solid base for the spring events.
Love my cycling to so lots of XT going on
Thanks guys and girls look forward to your replies
