Sunderland then Edinburgh Marathon

Posted: 06/02/2013 at 16:34

Hello!!!

I've signed up for the Sunderland Marathon and the Edinburgh Marathon.

I'm looking for do a sub3:30 in the Sunderland and a sub 3:15 in the Edinburgh.

I'm struggling to formulate a clear training plan.  I've already done 4 weeks pretraining (6 days, 2 lsr of 12m&16).  How to I taper off for both races while still having time to do enough LSRs of up to 20m?  Maybe I don't taper off for Sunderland?

Is anyone else facing a similar dilemma or have any advice?

Richard.

Good work.  10 miles in the bag!!

I'm sitting here trying to motivate myself for 7 miles, with strides.  I'm sure my legs are aching more and more with every minute that passes..........

Ok.  Thanks,  if I'm determined to run a sub 3 marathon then I guess running on saturday is needed.

Btw, what times were u clocking up 3 years prior to 'getting off your arse and stopping smoking'.

I'm on 18:30 5k, 38ish 10k and 1:36 half. Done a few marathons but my times are not representative due to low training milelage.  

Was 14s 6lb but over last 6 months dropped 1s 6lbs.  I'm 6"5'. You say u dropped 5stone.....

 

My first hill training session, am I doing it right?

Posted: 04/02/2013 at 21:48

Garmin info a bit hard to decipher for a non-garmin user. 

How long is the hill and How long does it take u to run up the hill? 

How many reps was it?

What is your goal? 10k, marathon? What time you going for?

What effect do you notice after taking a gel?

Posted: 04/02/2013 at 21:38

Water and additional training are more effective than gels. 

Herbalife

Personally I'm not a fan.  Seems like a money making, cult like society, designed to highly motivate people into thinking they are athletes and that they need help from supplements and meal replacement products.

But, am i being prejudice. 

What do you think?
