Just back up to base mileage 25 per week, includes parkrun most weeks. I don't like the dark mornings so to freshen things up I'm trying to run early evening, the hardest bit is getting through the door, once out it's a good change, I'm also trying out different routes.
On training plans, I followed the Manchester marathon intermediate plan last year and I liked it, I did lose some weight before the marathon but was very pleased with a pb but I did get to the start line, feeling fit and ready not tired. However, I didn't stick to it for the Yorkshire marathon, too many distractions, I did 4 x 20+ milers, felt training went well but I just didn't feel my best on race day still sub4 so pleased.
I'll have a look at Liz Yelling plans, if it works for Bev 3.49 wow. I think 4 days running for me is sustainable, I just worry about pushing too much by overtraining and getting injured, I'm late 50's only been running for 5 years, 2 at marathons.
I'm running the Barnsley 10knext week no pb potential for me, only a pb if your pb is currently set in the Himalayas
I'm looking forward to swapping tales of the joys of running, mostly.
