Simple Training Forumla, would it work?

Posted: Yesterday at 16:35

I love Saucony shoes - wear them almost all the time.  Kinvara or Cortana by choice, and I have the trail shoes - looking forward to actually using them.  Planning to enter Sevenoaks 7 and Marlow half marathon (taking it slow and easy though) if I am in time to register.

OK JJ.  This week you need to do 3 runs. 

1x 8k easy

1x tempo (total 8k distance, so 1.5 warm up, 5 at pace and 1.5 cool off.  Pace - 6:10 - 6:20mins per km, see how you feel) 

1x 12k LSR

Also 2 bike rides each 45-60 mins.  I'll leave it to you to pick the days, but ideally don't run on consecutive days, and have a full rest day before or after the LSR.

LSR will build to 18k before the GNR, not further, and don't worry, lots of plans operate that way.  You know you can do the whole distance so we don't need to prove that, right now avoiding injury and getting you around in one piece.

Still planning to do 2x bike and 3x run each week?  If so I'll post something later today to cover the next 6 weeks

Sounds as though we're getting there.

I can see your bike ride from 17 July - is that the last ride you did?  Just trying to get the overall picture so I can do a plan for the next 6 weeks.

Gym for me tomorrow, and a target of 7k on Monday

JJ, don't worry, you''ll get there.  You were actually pushing the pace a little in the middle there so back off and it'll be easier.  Cycling tomorrow?

This week no more than 3 runs - a tempo again, same format as last week, and 2 x easy / slow 8k.  Will add a bit of distance the following week assuming the knee stays good.

JJ, that's good news.  Can you wear the heart monitor cycling as well?  That'll will be useful as we go along.
