So new plan ,,,, I follow LloydR who follows Hatter 88 ,
I can see a conga forming on the champs ??lys??es
This is genius. Ditch the official pacers, and line up the whole thread in estimated finish order. Result - an invincible Paris thread train charging through the streets of Paris .
Re tapers - the dreaded P&D plan has you running pretty hard right to the end. The last week looks like:
Tues - recovery 6 miles
Wed - 7 miles with 2 at mara pace
Fri - recovery 5 miles including 6 x 100m strides
Sat - recovery 4 miles
The last one was the only training session of the entire plan that I dropped - I just felt it was too much and I needed to rest. Plus I was travelling and Expoing anyway. But I did do the others (mind you, I fell flat on my face during the Tuesday run and skinned my elbow, but that's another story).
