HADD Training Method

Posted: 15/04/2015 at 23:23

Hi everyone

I've gone off-piste recently so haven't posted here for a while.  Like last year I dumped Hadd in favour of a Salazar plan aiming to break 90 for a Half.  Failed.  In fact I didn't even PB at 5k/10k either, so I'm back here looking for inspiration.

I deferred my Frankfurt place to this year (October): Having built a good base and not destroyed it with a mara, I'm currently progressing through higher subLt's (i.e. HRs that I certainly won't hold for a mara) aiming to PB at a Half in June. Then back to Hadd phase I. 


Rich I think if you commit to some lower HR training it will benefit you even on 30 mpw.  Whatever your time commitments, running at a sensible HR will mean you'll be happy to stick a few extra miles in.  Believe me, it works.

Acp everyone thinks Hadd is complicated.   It's not - get your max tested, run as often as you can at 70-75% max HR.  Introduce some hard stuff when you get to 40-50 mpw. 

Ziks keep posting, I'm currently off-Hadd so it's good to hear how other plans are progressing

Moks nice low HR for that pace.  DD, VT hope you're both ok

OH another great piccie - hope you've shaken off that migraine

NN super PB and super WAVA

Stuart nice interval session, well done

HM thanks

Gaz cracking set of rolling 800s, well done

Stewart nice easy 5 last night and good running this morning.  Weather will be fine, it always rains in Manchester


1m w/up then three sets of 2.25m at what was supposed to be a level HR of 85%max. I started off too fast and then the sun got to me - the three intervals came in at 7:13, 7:25 and then 7:30 pace with some nasty HR drift.  I reckon that HR is about 30 seconds slower than the HR I'd race a Half on, so feeling positive (with sore legs).  Cool down got me to 9.45m for the day.
