First things first,,,,,

Having broken a mentee two years ago I would prefer it if you could just go out and get the gentle miles in for a couple of weeks just to make sure the knee will hold up once we start increasing, Whilst you can run every day can I sugget you run alternate days to ensure that if you do get any come back from the knee you arent already out running on it when it starts to hurt.
Try to keep the increase in volume down about half a mile a run..... a couple of miles a week at most at the moment. If you can do 6 without any knee problems by mid Jan we are off and running, literally

If you want me to customise a plan for you to make it more specific to your times/life/family/goal time etc I will do it with pleasure, at least that way we can adapt as we go along to fit in with changing goals, circumstances etc.


I am here to be used

"Things I need to work on: running slower so I can add on the miles and cutting down on the red wine"

Lets make sure the knee holds out, we have 4 months why not plan at the start to stay at 10's

Red wine reduction can if necessary be proven to have a detrimental effect on distance  

Vanessa I will PM you tomorrow hopefuly with a few idea and suggestions which you are free to ignore completely,

I get the youngsters.......


Quoted from Vanessa....... who we will have to find a proper forum name for  


I am 45 years old and just got into running this year. I'm quite fit and before falling in love with running was a walker/trekker. This year trekked to Everest Base Camp, completed 12 of the Welsh 3000s and walked London to Brighton to raise money for the local hospice.

I'm a mum of 3 working 30 hours a week as a Teaching Assistant in foundation (4&5 year olds) so my job is quite active.

I am happy to run in any weather (although ice scares me due to injury potential) and am very determined once I set myself a goal.

I've got confirmed entry to MK Half next March and Milton Keynes Marathon next May (again supporting the hospice) and I want to give it my best shot. I'm just back to running after 2 weeks off after slipping while running and twisting my knee so I need to up my game again.

My PBs are:

5K 28:09 and 10K 1:01:17

My hope is to complete the Marathon in under 5 hours.

My usual training is Mon - Body Pump, Tues - run 30 mins, Weds- run 30 mins, Thurs - Body pump, Friday - run 30 mins, Sat - LSR (longest 8.5 m before my knee injusry so I may need to build back up), Sun - rest.
