Maybe selbs should keep the spade whilst ive got your trainers.

Can you train for a marathon on two runs a week

Posted: Today at 17:13
I've run ok (for me ) off 3 runs/week, but its easier off more. However I'm sure the twice a week person could do ok if he builds it up to say 4 weeks of 18m weds and 22m sunday before a short taper.

You are all skinny rakes (or at least the folks I've met are).

None meanr but it tickled me that banksy has been working on his form but not doing long runs. No doubt he will run with nice form until he cramps up and walks (although I'd like to see him go well with a long run of only 16m to back up the 2:49 I heard of at abo).

Lev - not sure it matters waht you do this side of NY, but put your trainers in the post to me afterwards so you stop for the full 4, 6 or whatever weeks without trying to dig up the healing potatoes. I'll keep them safe.

Toro - no gsr here

Stuart little 2 - too !

Banksy - you obviously never followed our advice from a couple of weeks ago then. Esp my proven 5 week plan.

Hope that jools, selbs and tt all have cracking runs

6m more today. Think my ankle needs a day or 2 of no running now. Hoping to get up to 4 runs a week fornsomething like 6, 8, 10 and 12 and then hold it there for few months so it becomes the norm.

TJB - aim 2:55:52 it read the same upside down on my fridge magnet and so I consider it to be my best time.

LS21 - I'm glad you came back to post a report and even more glad that you came back to finish it. Great to see you run is a year round thing in my house what with all the club sessions, squads, indoor matches etc I just choose not to bore you all with it some times, however I could bang on about how I hate the Expo (6 months early).

CW - I read y'day of an Abo 2:49 off a long run of 16M, if only the 2:43 off 30M was done by the same person we'd have the answer at last.

9M (still only 8mm but so what !) in the trainers this morning, equal longest since the 1/2 IM, but better than all the 5 and 6milers I've been doing for the past couple of weeks, 85M for the month too which beats July, August and September. Just need to see how the ankle is tomorrow. Could be up to double digits soon !!!!!

Barefoot doesnt join in normally just asks questions and doesnt usually respond. This question seemed quite normal too.

DrD - a service I provide for you free of charge too, great value really. I posted to CW a year or two back that I could be the best coach he'd never had but he likes doing things his way and will no doubt be doing the 27milers again soon.

DrD - you might love running but I seem to remember you being grumpy when ill or injured......put your trainers away until sunday in the interests of longevity.

ThR - you are getting some big miles in, outside of marathon training too.

All these swim drills are making my shoulders ache, not sure bigger shoulders wil help my running, but then I guess my running is out of balance with my bike and swim anyway.

Jools - sounds like the taper is going as it should then.

Ryan - top decision, very wise. Enjoy the rest.

TT - wise to stick with the A target, who's to say that 87M na dkless sharpening wont be better than 90M with sharpening. Remember that you have the 1/2 mara under your belt, must be better than some of the sharpening work.

Tick Tock - nice sub3, what is your PB ?

ON7 - you were always going to find that 10M hard a week after a 1/2mara.

LS21 - I saw your result and was really pleased for you, hope the new plans work out well. Not that you can probably read this as it would take another visit to teh library.

Just Selbs, jools and TT to go now!
