Scott - Pfitz did an interview on marathontalk (last Christmas or the one before, I think - you can find it in the archived podcasts). Among the points I remember were that he would add more Strides into the sessions, and that the glossing over of Hill training is an omission. I'm also pretty sure I heard/read somewhere that he didn't really want to include schedules originally, but they were really only to help people make sense of the rest of the material in the book (I can't find my reference to that though - so it may well have been someone else like Jack Daniels). FWIW - I think if we were meant to follow the schedules to the letter, there would be no point in the rest of the book. The information is there to help us construct our own schedules to suit our lifestyles. (I just happen to have constructed one to look almost exactly like the 18/55 schedule in the book ).
15W / Mennania - there's a Greyhound that delights in trotting past me when I'm busting my gut. It doesn't get in my way, but I'd still like to kick the piss-taking mutt.
13m w/8m @ MP for me this morning. I had planned to target 9:45 "marathon pace" given that all my paces are about a minute down on where I should be. I actually averaged 9:30 pace. So not quite as grim as I had expected.
