Thanks for the welcome everyone - Agent Ginger yours was the best  

Ramjet - The official plan starts on the 15th of Dec, today's run was more of a pre-plan panic run Is you name from Roger Ramjet, the 80's/90's cartoon??

P&D Spring Marathon Thread 2015

Posted: Yesterday at 11:41

Hi all,

I'm about to start the P&D up to 55 miles plan. I'll be running Manchester Marathon with the aim of sneaking in under 4 hours. I entered the plan into my spreadsheet last night and as a result went off on an 8 mileish run this morn. I've been running a fair bit lately, but not long or enough. 

15West, I agree, Black Friday is horrible for so many reasons. That said, I'm pretty happy with my ridiculously cheap new Garmin from amazon

They are frustrating - think of it as a bit of annoyance now to save a lot of annoyance later maybe? Listen to your physio! 

Yep, £129 including heart rate monitor! One of these lightning deal things. I'm pretty chuffed

Hi tmbrntt and rich! 

I'm in the process of plugging the P&D upto 55 plan into my marathon spreadsheet. I'm more excited than I should be. No running for me today, or yesterday for that matter. I had a day out in London that ended very late. Can I count ice-skating as cross training?  

I'm also enjoying strava, I can see the segments functions becoming addictive.

Sorry to hear Susan, also impressed by your positive attitude - fingers crossed for the next set of tests. 

I just impulse bought a the forerunner 610.. I picked it up from amazon for £129.. how could I not?! A special treat to begin marathon training with?

Enjoy the cycling and swimming Shedboy! Triathlon wise - you'll go a long way focusing on these two without having to fit in running too

Well done on the 500miles Howard. Are the glutes feeling any better this evening? I ran that tow path when I lived in London, I have some very un-fond memories of horizontal snow and mud.. it's nice to feel somewhat away from all houses/people though.

I'm exhausted after duathlon yesterday, cycle training this morn and then I was in charge of the hill session at the tri club tonight so had to go along. I wimped out of one rep, but still managed three. Also managed to run into a man with a door - he popped out an alleyway just as I was running past. Ouch.

Thanks Bigeater - I'd definitely recommend them! Glad your hamstring is recovering well.

Good idea to drop the mileage to avoid jelly legs. Today's hill session was a killer on mine, more heavy than jelly though. Also managed to run into a man carrying a door - he popped out of an alleyway just as I ran past, I'm not sure who was more shocked..

That's a hefty mileage target (relative to me) AlanB, nice work - esp on top of the cycling! Is that a year round target?

Duathlon went well, I resisted chasing the front pack (age-group triathletes, it wouldn't have been pretty) and my second run lap was only 30 seconds slower than the first - after 10 miles of cycling - so I'm considering it a pacing success! 

Edo - I've a hills session tonight too. My poor legs.

A nice duathlon for me on Sunday, a good race and reasonable times - the runs were about 30 mins combined, so 4 miles in that time + a 10 mile cycle between. Pretty happy with that. 

Properly freezing down south this morning, was very please my cycling session was on a turbo and not outside. Brrrr.
