Did about 5hrs 30 and 80 miles as discovered Ventoux is open so going there tomorrow to attempt the triple

All is good :`)

Training for 1m - 5k - 10k etc

It is too long a block of focused training you will get stale and struggle to keep the effort up before the marathon training starts.

I have played with this before

Probably suggest lump the mile and 5km work together for the 8 weeks and then have a break for a month, breaks don't mean do nothing they just mean run easy relax on the focus.

Then lump the 10km/half work together before having a proper break say a week off then do some easy volume(non focused and nothing over say 90 mins) before starting the marathon plan.

To be honest from a coaching point of view I usually do this the other way round as marathon training supplies the endurance base that often allows an athlete great recovery powers for the intensity of the shorter work.

Maths/Emmy - my training is anal beyond stupidity but I never cared for the marathon as a distance and just ran them for training, I don't even know which ones I ran as me or as someone else. I do however have all the data for every event so if I need to find historic HR data for say Abingdon 2005 then I have the data.

I know where my first one was
I know where my first sub 3 was
I don't know where my first sub 2.45 was though

I am no better with other distances really, 245 parkruns

I know the first was at Bushy but not sure when
I know my first sub 17 was at Basingstoke at event 2 but I know this because it was a HUGE pb.
I have no idea how many different locations I have been to

I do know I have only run sub 17 at 4 and 2 were this year, found out by accident and was shocked.

I just don't keep lists :??)
