marathon training advice

Posted: 24/02/2015 at 17:28

As above. 9 weeks training will leave you 6-7 weeks of build-up before a taper. You could adapt it to do a 10, 12, 14, 16, 14, 18, 20 + 2 week taper

Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury/recovery - anyone else suffered?

Posted: 16/02/2015 at 16:05

I had a football injury 20 years ago, and at the time didn't think it was too major. However, over the course of the next year or two, it kept giving way and would swell up again.

Anyway, it turn out (from an MRI a couple of years ago) that I did rupture my ACL -so for the last 20 years have been ACL defincient in my right knee. I can no longer do any sports involving twisting or sudden change of direction, but running is OK if I'm careful (done 7 marathons and an Ultra in last 8 years).

You can continue without having surgery

Buy Newton running shoes to improve speed/ impact on heel ? Which one?

Why would a pair pf Newtons make you run faster, or even run differently?


Heel Pad Syndrome

Posted: 23/01/2015 at 11:40

Thanks Phil. Mines more a bruise/dull ache in the centre of the heel, rather than a sharp pain to the front -no tenderness in the PF at all.

Planning on 2-3 weeks no running and see where I am from there.

Heel Pad Syndrome

That's what I've self diagnosed as it fits the description of type and location pain compared to PF.

Anyone else suffered who might be able to offer advice (other than a Doc saying rest or a Pod saying you need orthotics)

Feeling sick after running

Posted: 18/01/2015 at 11:09

I feel nausious after 17/18 miles (even when used to this mileage). I'vre tried all sorts but have now concluded it's about stress on my digestive system. I'm just a bit more sensitive than most

I have exactly the same right now. Did yours sort itself out, or what interventions took place?

Pose running

Posted: 14/01/2015 at 10:00

Minamilist shoes (or shoes with little cushion and/or low heel drop) will not alter the way you run. Only the marketing guys tell you that. YOU will alter the way you run if you want to. But minimalist shoes, or going barefoot a little bit, will help you develop better perception, which in turn will help your skill development.

You can still understand and practice Pose without minimalist shoes, it's just better with, and when you start to crack it, you'll want to ditch cluncky, highly cushioned shoes anyway.

A common misconception is that Pose is specifically about running on your forefoot (or toes as some claim). It's not -you land on your forefoot as a result of doing everything else well and you land close to under your hips. That's just how you land... like you do when you skip/jump rope, utilising your body's spring mechanism. Runners make the mistake of forcing a forefoot landing (usually out in front of their body) and that's where the injuries come from

First Time Marathoner - training advice

Posted: 07/01/2015 at 09:28

Look for a plan that suits you. Plans are formed through experience. Some can run 5 times a week, others only 2, but the training principles are the same whether you run a 10k in 60mins or 35 mins.

80% low intensity running and 20% medium/high intensity running is the most effective training and less injury/fatigue risk



HADD Training Method

For those in this thread and the P&D forum, I would like to highly recommend the book 80/20 Running by Matt Fitzgerald. Not specifically about heart rate (although it does cover it) but similar HAAD principles. It's excellent.
