Apols if anyone has posted this already but I love this:-

Pre-marathon Training Plan Workouts

IMO, go steady. You want to start the programme fresh. A base of regular runs and some solid conditioning work (gym, pilates, etc.). Try to run as frequently as you will when the programme commences but without the intensity. Whatever the longest run is for week 1 is, make sure you can do that comfortably before you begin.

Sorry not been on for a bit. Good luck for Chester S32 and for Snowdon RE. I`ve heard that that`s a really good race.

I`ve not raced since the Trail Rush and getting rid of niggly injury. Just trying to get back into 5 runs a week at the mo. Might have a pop at a parkrun soon and OH is running the Tissington trail half on Sunday.

I`m thinking of doing Worksop and / or Clowne but I`m unlikely to be in any decent shape. Bit different to last year where I got PBs at 5 distances over about 6 months!  Further ahead Manchester Mara is a thought but not if it clashes with Sheff HM.


hmmm, just checked and SHM is week before Manc.
