JJ, pretty sure you are not overtraining at this stage.  Elevated resting heart rate is an early warning sign.

Now get back to work.

Yes - it's quite a good drill - that last 20 minutes harder than you expect

JJ, no more vey long runs until after the half.  Then yes 2 x very long slow sessions, with walk breaks as you did the previous time.  You'll be just fine.

JJ, yes, Saturday rest.  I had a bit of a difficult week with not feeling too well, only managed some of my runs none of my gym sessions  but feeling better today.

Today, (if I'm not too late), go with - 20 minutes at LSR pace, then 20 minutes 30sec faster, then 20 mins 30sec faster again. ie one hour with increasing pace.

LSR this week only () 24k.

You are in great shape for the half mara at the end of this month.  We will focus on longer intervals and hills from now until then.

Let me know which days are rest days / cross train this week and I will send you the rest of the plan


Need a Feb marathon!

Posted: 23/01/2016 at 09:23

There are two over the 13/14 Feb.  I'm doing this one, but there's another the following day.  Might be a bit far to travel from the North though -

JJ, not a bad idea to have a hard 10k a few weeks before the marathon.  We'll factor that in.  Your LSR this week is nice and short

Next week -

Back to uphills - normal hill session.

8k Easy with 5 x 1 min pickups

Short(er) intervals - 1.5k warm up,5 x 1.5k @ 5:45, cool off (total around 10 - 10.5k)

LSR 28k - slow pace with 2 minute walks every 5 k

JJ, yes 26k would be a good distance for LSR

Then next week a bit of a change -

1 x Long intervals - 1k warm up, 3k @ 5:50 - 6:00 then easy 200m x 3, cool off

1 x Easy 8k

1 x Downhills - warm up 1 - 1.5k, find a long slow downhill and run it with a reasonable pace, concentrating on your form, treading lightly.  Easy walk / jog back up, repeat for about 30 minutes, cool off.

LSR 20k

...sorry for the absence, work was a bit of a challenge for the last couple of weeks.

OK JJ, no point getting injured now.

Hi JJ, that looks fine.Your heart rate drifted up a bit towards the end there, looks like fatigue.   I am back in UK so will try to work the plan this week. 

It will take a little while to get over the extra run plus other exercise, by the end of Feb you should be doing well again.
