Good morning All. It’s been some time since I posted regularly on these forums but I’ve used P&D schedules, at times more seriously than others, for a few years. Don’t think it’s a coincidence that my 2 best marathons, Paris in 2013 and London this year, have followed my most conscientious following of P&D. Can only say what I think others have said, the schedules just seem to build endurance for the business end of a marathon. Also, reading last year’s Spring thread gave me great inspiration.
Being of mature years, my 3.52 in London (a PB), gave me a nice cushion for Boston qualifying and feel privileged to be heading there next April. So the 18/55 schedule starts 2 weeks today and I’ll see how things go before setting a target. As a minimum would hope to go sub-4 for the 6th time.
Will again be following the thread closely without maybe saying too much. Good luck to everyone with their personal goals.
