P&D Autumn Marathon Training Thread 2014

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 07:30

Hello all, just dropping in to have a read as legs are starting to feel tired and the marathon is getting closer (Berlin). 

With the Bank holiday this week I did last week's long run on Monday.  Would you do this week's long run on Sunday giving a 70 mile week (big jump up) or I could keep them on Mondays as I am racing 10K next Sunday so keeping them on Monday would keep with the spirit of the programme.

Just running - nice times.  Which programme are you following and what is your goal?

I bonked at VLM this year (3:15) but am aiming for a big PB (PB Currently 2:55) and I am in the form of my life despite being unable to get short race PBs.

 I think sub 2:50 is possible and maybe even 2:45.  I quite like the Marco planner and am thinking of using it to begin with.

I've just stumbled upon this.  Has anyone used it?  How did it compared to your previous races?  

Thanks in advance.
