I'm hoping you can offer me some advice for my summer training.
My history is a VLM in 2010 of 4.51, Leeds half 2010 in 1.57, i have a sub 2 GNR in 2011, a couple of 10ks where my pb was 50.20, VLM 2013 in 4.17 and I magically conjured up a 3.58 at Edinburgh on Sunday. I'm entered for York in October and I hadn't expected the result I got on Sunday, in fact, I thought I'd struggle and be slower than London and my target for York would be 4 hours.
Im now adjusting my York target to a LM good for age of 3.45 and this is where I need help. Im at a loss as to how I should approach the training. I need to get quicker and will work on speed and hills at the running club at BMF (British Military Fitness) but do I capitalise on my current fitness or start again with a 16 week training plan.
Is it worth investing in coaching or is that taking it a bit too far? I am a bit bamboozled and not sure what to do really. Where do you learn about this stuff?
Any advice would be massively appreciated.
