Dara, I think the secret is don't fold the tube till you have all the toothpaste moving upward ie. don't progress till the pace at each intensity plateaus.

3:24 to sub-3 is a HUGE jump. But eh! I like your style. 

Keep us updated please.

Dara, it depends on the sort of experience background you have to how you start, and how to progress things. If you are an experienced endurance athlete, returning to Hadd type principles, then I would suggest the progression would be very quick eg.

Block 1 - all easy stuff ( less than 75%), building time-on-feet

Block 2 - add in some sub-lt (~80% nd build to 70mins

Block 3 - marathon specific (83% / MP runs) and some 20milers+

For less experienced runners or if you have turned to Hadd because of a particularly weak translation of race times, then the start would be the same but progression would only take place when ready.

Thanks guys.

DrDan, lol. You are a little taller than me....

Dara, welcome! and good luck with the training. I would split it into 3x6 week blocks (plus 2 weeks taper). Chunks are then a bit more bite-sized. Easier to plan out that way too. 

Moks, not heard of that one. What was the attraction there?

Happy New Year everybody!

Just a quick update so as you guys don't think I've fallen out with you:

Redundancy finally came true (after 3 extension periods) and I finished 31/12. Trying to get back into employment now, applying like mad!

Started training again on Monday (If you could call it that) but still feels like I'm dragging my leg behind. Lots of strengthening is the order of the day, trying to build the muscle back up but it's not happening yet. It's been 8 weeks now since I tore the hammy, and the physio did say it could take up to 12 weeks to mend properly

Got on the scales on Monday and frightened myself to death!!!! - 73.5kg

67kg is my normal racing weight!!!!

Errrr.... that is miles / minutes / pace.

The annual mileage for me is pretty low - infact the lowest I've done in many years!
