Oh shit.....horrible...

Deciding my plan! help would be huge!

Posted: Today at 15:07

when doing marathon training.the long run is usually considered one of the most important.....the general consensus is that these should not be done too fast......usually about  a minute or more slower than the intended pace on the day......

2 so that it doesn't knacker you so that you cannot do the sessions in the week effectively...especially if some of them are speed sessions......

 and secondly that the accumulation of long runs at pace does not totally get to you and knacker you or injure you.....

they say it takes most people 2 or 3 weeks to recover after racing a marathon to be back to if you do all your long runs at race pace or faster then you will get tired


that said there are different of opinions........a lot of people like the suggestion that once or twice a month you speed up in the long run.....running the second half at race pace....or by slowly increasing it every 4 or 5 miles until the last few miles are at race pace......

some of your shorter runs in the week will be a lot faster than race pace  9:09


 but there are loads of doubt someone can say that they did sub 3 form just running twice a week..we are all different

there are many marathon plans....first one I had from an old running club guy just had 5 runs a week.with an amount of mileage to details of speed.or hills or intervals or anything..just a steady build up of mileage.......

worked well for me ...

I still like those sort of plans i can tick of the mileage and change the days around......

best bet is to look for one that it looks like you might enjoy following and give it a go..there is no right plan or wrong one..(as long as it has enough mileage in it.. and doesn't build up too quickly...)


good luck

andy.. you would have no problem with the double with some training.

 the question will be what time will you be aiming for..a finish will be fine for you.......the faster you want to be the harder you will have to train...
