Nice session 15West. Does the Daniels book differ quite a bit from P and D?
It's kind of based on the same principles I guess....but yes, quite different. Daniels just gives two quality sessions a week, the rest you make up yourself. One difference is Daniels has the VO2 type intervals earlier in the training cycle. One of the sessions is the long run which is a slow long run every 3 weeks, the other two weeks have faster sections at tempo or marathon pace...one example is the session I showed on the previous page. The other session is either VO2 intervals or tempo run/intervals. I put in a MLR on another day, and the rest is slow runs of 5 to 8ish mi.
Currently I am doing following...Mon Vo2/Tempo, Tue MLR, Wed Easy, Thu Easy, Fri LSR/Tempo/MP, Sat off/easy, Sun Easy.
As I said before Daniels is quite specific in the paces to run at based on your VDOT number, but these paces are same as LT/VO2 etc paces in P&D. One thing Daniels has is different tempo (or LT) paces depending on time at that pace.
I have a Daniels pace spreadsheet too if anyone interested!
I need to start drinking a bit less on the weekends.
