Last time I used a tweaked RW Improvers plan from one of the issues in 2012 - tweaked because the beginners seemed too easy - and that worked for me. Am interested in the P&D one but can't justify spending out on another running book and not sure I can fit in 55 miles - but is that just at peak weeks?
SGB1953- I booked the Mill Hotel only recently and then still had rooms - albeit not the cheapest I know. It is about 10 mins walk to the racecourse apparently - may take longer coming back!
Lisa123 - I am also itching to start the training programme - despite doing the same things each week anyway really - just makes it official to be on that road again and tick off the runs each time - am still enjoying the novelty of this marathon training lark!
