Hi Martin, your half times are close to mine, my first was 1:56, 1:42 at Bath, then i got 1:39:08 at bristol.
I followed a 10 week sub 1:45 training plan, which is basically running 4 times a week total mileage was 28-32 miles a week. Typical week was:-
Tues:- Easy Pace 5 miles (incl 6x60m strides)
Thrs:-Race Pace 7 miles (incl 3x1 mile @7.30mins + 6x60m Strides)
Fri:- Easy 4 miles (i'd normally incorporate a few hills)
Sun:- Long run 10 miles (went up to 13)
Im training for Bath in 3 weeks and have used the smartcoach programme on here, which is custom built it is more intensive, I' running 5 times a week and 35 miles but I'd love to beat my last time!
Good Luck with your training!
Doh! I've just seen that you posted this ages ago!! Hopefully you are sorted by now!!
