Unfortunately Flob the article by SIS is not much more than an advert for their supplements. Eat low carb food and buy carb supplements from SIS.

How to run faster

Posted: 31/08/2013 at 19:54

It's very surprising that she can run 12x9.30min miles but cannot run a sub 2 hour half marathon. But that assumed I agree with Taxi above for someone who can run a 2 hour half 9.30 per mile seems a bit fast. I'd go about a minute slower then that. Maybe for a vo2 max run she could try yasso 800's that is 800m reps at 4 to 4.10mins. And some threshold runs at 9 min mile pace. That is a 5 mile run with 2x 9 min miles in between.

Given her last weeks training i think 2 hours will be broken easily.

non-impact exercise that doesn't cost anything?

Air cycling, lie on your back and peddle in the air. Air punching punch up into the air, not too hard, just lots. Both will tire you out. A low impact full body work out for free.

Nutritional Content of Skimmed Milk vs Semi-Skimmed

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 22:53

What sort of amount of fat are you talking about? 2 stones or 2 lbs over weight. If it's the latter counting the fat one the milk might make the difference otherwise probably not.

This article is very vague. The title seemed to indicate that low carb training and racing was effective, but the article itself said :

 competition always be performed with high carbohydrate availability (so as to maximize performance).

As noted above by henry, there are no figures of how both the control group and the test group performed. Shocking considering a Dr wrote it!

Which is my best event/distance?

Posted: 25/08/2013 at 20:06

According to your 1500 is best by far. But I wouldn't put to much on times run without proper training. I would just train for the distance I enjoy most.

Realistic pace predictions for realistically shaped people

Posted: 24/08/2013 at 16:09

Based on your times there I can see no reason you shouldn't go for 1.37 for a half marathon. I think the race prediction formula is assuming you are doing the weekly millage required for the distance, so at least 40 per week for a half marathon and 60 for a marathon. It amazes me how big guys are able to run as fast and faster then me even though I'm 10st and thought I was quite good at distance running.

can t sleep

Posted: 19/08/2013 at 20:03

I've suffered from insomnia on and off for about 20 years and think it is to do with stress/depression. Unfortunately there is no way to know for sure. I take zopiclone sometimes, it is pretty good in getting me to sleep but can wear off after 4 or 5 hours if I'm really struggling to sleep. I haven't found any thing that works without fail but I do find really trying to do relaxing things in the evening does help, that excludes running. And if you can't sleep, still try to rest, listen to quiet music or and audio book. Experiment with different foods maybe, try running at different times, it might work.

I would make my long run a bit longer say 10 - 12 miles and do only 1 hard session per week. It's important to run most your runs at about 10-11 min/mile. Your tempo pace is about right. As for speed sessions maybe do 800m's reps in 3.30mins.

You'll crack 50 min's soon on 5 runs per week.

As far as I can tell with the cruise intervals is that by splitting it up into intervals and not doing it all in 1 go you can work for longer at your desired pace, similar to vo2max intervals. I'll have to get jack daniels book out again and read up on it. I can't see that threshold training would be done at any other pace but threshold, but I'll check.

Here's and article by the man himself
