I quite like the look of that plan Pete although without looking at the P&D plan properly that Asics plan seems to have a lot more speedwork than P&D. From memory P&D has quite a lot of recovery and easy running whereas Asics throws in intervals, tempo runs, parkruns and a long run (at a decent pace) all into the same week. That might kill me off over 18 weeks :/
Also seen the recommended 10k and Half times to meet the 3:30 marathon, i'm a few minutes off that half time just now! Hopefully put that right at Capesthorne in November.
Carter - What plan do you use instead? Or do you develop your own with features from various plans? I also felt i was very close to injury (mainly my calves) during the training although i just about managed to get through. I think this time i will be a little less obsessed about ticking off the days on my calender and instead take an extra rest day if needed.
Big - I like to run in the mornings too when its hot although I'm much more prone to "toilet problems" when running first thing It seems to take a couple of miles for the body to get moving but for the most part i enjoy morning runs more than any other. After work evening runs are the worst, especially in heat
