P&D Autumn Marathon Training Thread 2014

Madbee, on the strides thing... I definitely think that they help overall speed based on the fact that I did them last time out. They're useful as they make you run fast on an already tired body from the accumulated training fatigue.

And they make the run quicker of course.

Ramjet - what does the MmmBop plan say about strides?

Wenty, good to hear from you fella. Further to above suggestions, just jump into the 12 week plan at the appropriate point and give it hell. And we all know that you can do that alright 

Take it easy Ramjet, you're our 'test subject' after all!

Madbee, superb running!!

Much laughter at 'if you don’t want me to run in front of you, then run a little quicker…'

And a quality race for pace comparison as you rightly say. Well done

andrews148, nice tip on the calculator. A time function would be nice to save any more spectacular public gaffs. (I double checked that last sentence to make sure that I didn't type 'pubic')

10 miles recovery last night for me, although I forgot about the strides. I'll add them to my 5 mile recovery tonight then.

Autumn appears to be well on its way as it's nippy and drizzly here today. Good running conditions though and a nice run in the heat by SteveG2.

Just when you thought you didn't wear enough lycra... become a cyclist.

andrews148, told ya, dodgy maths  .

I'll gloss over that and be glad that I can at least equal you in terms of recovery times. Other extrapolations and dodgy statistic comparisons are available...

andrews148, 1:29 recoveries off 5:30 rep times?! That's a bit on the sharp side! (45% of the interval time).

A couple of weeks ago I was doing 5:53 intervals with a 4:10 recovery as I just run back over the same bit of road (71% of the interval time)

I suppose it's not out by much now that I've done some dodgy maths. Bloody good times though.

Ramjet, 'excitement compensating for fatigue' is a very good way of describing it. That's my plan anyway!

More common sense from one of our speedy poster boys, 15West. I suspect that he's down but not out though... heal well in the meantime fella

Morning all.

9 w/5x800@5.50 last night - 2nd interval session so far and felt much stronger and controlled than last week. 14 miles later on this evening. Ravenous!

Some great running going on at the minute. Or partying if you're Scott

Ramjet, it definitely looks as if your training is paying off - really pleased to see that your measured and sensible approach is working out . Wise words indeed...

Ramjet wrote (see)

I think this all shows that months of consistent training are more important than squeezing some 20 milers into a training plan.


You just can't beat that feeling when you finish strongly!
