Simple Training Forumla, would it work?

Posted: Yesterday at 13:19

Cool, i was trying to keep the pace steady.

This weekend is a weird one for me as one of my daughters birthday party on Monday, and we are out on Sunday and i have a drive tonight.


I will be doing my LSR on Saturday instead of Sunday and moving Fridays run to Monday.

Core Strength Assistance

Having built up my distance I am working on the Manchester Marathon in April.

I need to do core strength exercises and I do a little.

The question is how much should I be doing? Two or three times a week? 10 minutes as session? Less or more?

Tempo run done and all good, i think the pacing was ok ranging from 5.48 to 6.0x.

Felt much better tonight and was trotting nicely.

This will be my first marathon. Only just reached the distance of a half marathon, so this is going to be tough going for me i think. 

Currently working on building a base and doing 10 mile LSR each week before pushing the distance on mid to end of November.

16km done. I am finding that my legs are getting achy and my feet getting sore (instep) before I am out of breath. Having said that I am managing the runs ok just giving a little feedback on how i feel as I run.

Knee is fine, sometimes i get niggle when running like i do with my ankles or the bottoms of my feet. So nothing which I would class as unusual.

Core work is something I do occasionally. I have been working on some free weights to build shoulders and arms (to look good basically).

More core though is needed and i will do perhaps more than my couple of 10 minute sessions a week.

8km easy tonight - hope the rain holds off. I wont be wearing the HRM tonight as when it rained on Wednesday it has cut into me a little under my arm, Should be ok for sundays run though.

Great North Run - email - 3 years

Posted: 14/10/2014 at 12:32

I was under the impression that all entrants from the previous year receive an email or something to let them know they can pre book their place for the next 3 years.

Does anyone know if and when this email comes out?

Thanks in advance.
