Yes will only do the 30k on weekend between the 2k's and 1k's. Should I still just plan to run 75-90 mins tomorrow (i.e. first day of the program)?

Yes to easy week after every 2 cycles on the program. Works great as that's Xmas - NYE for this time Smile

We can discuss the Mara specific training in March. For now focus is on fast 10k in Feb.

Had a decent enough 5k on Saturday, just over 17 on a very tough parkrun course. I'd had a deep tissue massage the day before so legs were very heavy (it was the only time I could squeeze it in unfortunately!).

Feeling great this morning, weight coming off and looking forward to this cycle.

Weight: ~80kg
Weather: 8 deg, 15-20mph wind!

Super windy today so the times aren't all that great. But had HR monitor and seem to be getting up to where I need to be to improve. Pretty tough session (drank/ate waaay too much last night at Xmas party!) but I think it's probably progress on last week given the wind.

Looking forward to the 30k this weekend. Legs feeling good.

good to get the session under the belt

let me know how the long run goes


Sub 35 - jamieh - 14-12-2014

Decent long run yesterday - 15k social jog (4:49 pace) then picked it up for final 16k (averaged 3:58 over hills/mud). 2hrs 15mins for the full 31k.

Recovered with an easy long ride today. Let's see how the legs feel for the 1k's.... could be interesting!

Moving in the right direction. Legs were a bit unresponsive for the last 3... definitely feeling the 30k from weekend!

now to recover running .. rather swim or cycle

but focus on recovery

next session is the paced run over the weekend

all OK??


Sub 35 - jamieh - 17-12-2014

Confession... I may have done a super easy 10k this morning before I saw your post Wink luckily legs felt great though so I've gotten away with it.

Will take it easy and just ride/swim tomorrow. Rest friday and then go for a decent tempo 5k on Saturday.


Sub 35 - TheEd - 20-12-2014

and .. how was the Saturday run then?


Sub 35 - jamieh - 20-12-2014

Well... some old friends were riding this morning so I couldn't pass up the opportunity & had to shift the schedule around a bit.

So, after a 4hr 15min ride (120km in the hills - felt great!), I rested on the sofa for a couple of hours then jogged over to the gym treadmill. 1% gradient.

16:38... which I thought was ok? First 3km @ 18k/h, then ramped it up to 18.3k for 1.5km, then last 0.5km at 20kph for the big finish.

Useful thing about the treadmill is I could get accurate HR data.
