Next week, assuming you haven't read the book yet

Big milestones then - new longest distances.  Run everything else easy at this stage, no pushing the pace.  Days with no run are either rest or cross train, at you discretion.

Mon     5 recovery pace (slooooow)

Wed    10 easy

Fri        8 easy

Sun      24 LSR

I, on the other hand, have another cold  and  have not run since Saturday.  Having a job is clearly bad for my health.

Glad it's going better, stick with the plan of 8k Friday, but make sure to take it very slowly.  Do the 22 on Saturday but factor in planned walk breaks - schedule them ahead of time.  We intended to do a couple of these sessions so this is probably a good time to start.  How about:

run 18 minutes walk 2 minutes?  Alternatively, run 9 minutes walk 1 minute.  The usual exception is if you hit a hill take the walk break - no point thrashing yourself uphill and walking down the other side.  It'll be a longish session so take water and maybe a flapjack / gel with you.

No running hard on your easy runs this week .  Well done on finishing the 20.

I just did my first hill training session in over a year - very nice to be back training with other people, even if all I see is their backs as they lap me .  I'd forgotten how hard it is and how much effort an extra couple of kilogrammes of weight requires, but I just about finished the session (with a couple of walk breaks).  Feeling good now, suspect I'll be a little stiff tomorrow.

Ok - couple of days off of course.  Let me know when you are ready to start again; next run will be 8k easy pace, whenever you think you are ok - don't run with chest congestion!
