I read it before Christmas so can't exactly recall all the details, DT, but he didn't say it wasn't worth doing (and indeed includes a fair bit of MP running in his own schedules), just that the adaptations were primarily aerobic (as well as the psychological benefits). As you don't do any of the easy aerobic running the rest of us do because you find a lower-mileage plan more suitable, your MP (or thereabouts) runs are presumably needed to provide that.
I said that on the P&D thread, Lou... they didn't like it!
I reckon it's plausible enough actually, as there are lots of good reasons to do MP running but training your various other energy systems possibly isn't one of them. Also it is hard work so it means you can choose to do MP sessions when targeting a marathon but that means you can't smash out loads of other kinds of hard sessions too because you need more recovery.
Well done Skinny! I have sometimes got up at a time beginning with 5 to run, but I don't think I've ever actually left the house till after 6. And I'm not sure I can even do PMP at the moment! So that is double hardcore.
i actually do have a pair of men's racing shorts (Brook inifiniti 3" split shorts, I think) given to me by a friend, which have two spacious side pockets big enough for 2 gels each. If you are a size S you can have them. Disclaimer: he gave them to me because they were too indecent for him to wear in public and he thought they might be better on a small woman.
