P&D Autumn Marathon Training Thread 2014

Posted: Today at 12:37

Ramjet - yeah, he doesn't blame the plan. Plenty of people get injured following P&D also. Looking at that thread and elsewhere on Hansons, it is not light on mileage, and every week seems to have 2 speedier sessions (speed/strength+tempo); but does not have 18+ long runs. So - is still tough I think?

if really want to run less miles I guess the FIRST schedules are the ones to go for, but still need time for the x-training.

I'm waffling, and I really need to read back over before posting to check it actually makes sense....

Fergster/Just Running - I gave up on the plan's double days also - although I just made it one 6mi run and ignored the 4. Just seemed such a faff and to get out there again for just 4mi. I'm now running one double a week as a commute and don't really enjoy that either, and I think is part of the reason my legs are aching so much so early in the schedule this time. Soon as showers are ready in my workplace I think I will be ditching it.

Thread here (he ended up injured...so not the best advert for Hansons):

Basically I'm interested in all this due to you saying that you were feeling good, whilst I am currently feeling not so good. I'd like to feel good too.

We're all looking for the magic formula I guess, and would be able to improve marathon times with less hard work...but seems to me the best way is still throwing miles at it. Must make a difference not running over 16mi though...

Ok, and that is out of the book? I found a recent thread on this website from Also-Ran who used Hanson but subscribed and got a personal schedule from their website or something, he posted it on here. I think maxed out about 65mi/wk. I guess the main difference is the shorter long runs, it works on just general fatigue from all the running and the long runs being done when tired.

re. recovery runs, personally I think that's a bad name, they should be just called easy runs. The best way to recover is surely to stop running altogether! They are there to just get the weekly mileage up, just as you say.

How many miles a week does your schedule get up to Ramjet?

Heh heh. Made me chuckle that last one. You're not looking delirious at all in that pic Madbee...looks like a gentle jog on the beach. Well done anyway, and well done to Mr Mad on previous day's effort. Give yourself some decent recovery time.

Double today. 4mi in, 12 mi home. Legs killing me. Sun blazing. Looking forward to a weekend of non running.

Well..just about managed my LT run home from work. The last mi was probably a bit slower than LT pace, but kind of managed the full 5mi this time. It was a bit hot and a bit blustery, and I was a bit of a sweaty betty and had to stop for a breather (and nearly a little puke) after the LT miles and before the slow jog home.
