Run faster and for longer

Posted: 06/10/2015 at 14:14

You need to increase your aerobic threshold by running long and slow (below 75% Max Heart Rate). You also need to increase your Lactate threshold by running 1-6 miles a tad slower than your 10k race pace.

These combine to allow you to run longer at a faster pace, or the same pace easier

Marathon with only 18 mile long run ?

I'd cancel it.

No pain in the calf doesn't mean it's completely healed and strong enough for continuous loading. I've had a few grade 1 and 2 calf tears and have had them tear again when I was convinced it had healed (and that was with very short jogs)

I think you should be completely fit, healthy, and well prepared for a marathon, especially your first as you don't want the experience to be tarnished in any way.

How can I upload a gpx or tcx file to my Garmin 310xt?

You have to use Garmin Training Centre. Look for Courses/Import (or similar -can't quite remember), Then Send to Device.

It's not an easy process but can be done.

If you have no luck, PM me and I'll look in detail for you.

Is it beneficial to run longer distances at marathon pace for HM training?

Posted: 21/09/2015 at 17:32

I would have thought that long miles at easy pace (slower than MP) would be just as beneficial for HM training as it is in marathon training -in other words, training runs that develop your aerobic threshold

Solid Heel backs on running shoes

Heel cups supposedly provide structured support around the heel for a no-slip fit. But -it's not needed and I hate them. Love Inov-8 soft heel. No blisters

To anyone interested...this thread is supposed to be for anyone following either P&D Advanced Marathoning, or the new Pfitz book (P&L?) Faster Road Racing for 5k to Half marathon distances. I guess Hansons followers can contribute too...

I'm about to start following one of the 10k ones for a local 10k in July.

Unfortunately I don't have this half marathon training book (yet), but wondered what distance and amount Matt Fitzgerald recommends for the long runs ?

Replacing Inov8 255 Road-X

Inov-8 have two newish road shoes -the 220 and 250. Haven't tried them though.

I'm a huge fan of the 233s (still have a few pairs) but I also run in the F-lite 232 which is a great show for the road

Garmin express is a bag of s**** lately. Had to ditch it and go back to ANT
