Hi Everyone, wish i found this thread sooner,
Good on ya Rich, I have scores to settle with the Marathon Too! I had calf problems on the 6 weeks run up to London, so I was pool running, and x training, fitted in a little running, but not much.
So I entered Dublin, I am going for a sub 3 hr, and did a test today of yasso 800s, I know people have mixed feelings on this workout, but it is only a guide,
I was either going to do 7 x 1 mile, or 14 yasso 800'sm I know 14's alot should be 10, but I needed to get round the 1 mile less so I did 14 aimed for sub 3 mins, everyone was 2.50 average, last one 2.41, so I was made up, it has given me confidence, I did my longest run in this plan yet, 21 miles last sat, a tempo run of 7 miles on Friday, so all is going well, I am sore, and very tired, but if I get sub 3, It will be the biggest dream of mine ever!
good luck everyone in your dreams, as you work hard they may come true
