The Program: Going into the last 4 weeks of the program, you should be in control of your running and the direction you are going, especially after the 10k race on Saturday Day 64. This event should give you a definite marker as to what you can expect from the Tallinn Half Marathon event. Contact me on the forums if you would like to ask more personalised questions.

Easy Runs – By now, you should have some data to work off related to whether 140 bpm easy suits you and works for you. Do discuss things further on the forums to get the full benefit of the programs.

R = Rest – is no exercise – do note, that as you develop, you can consider doing strength exercises for the upper body and doing stretching to assist your recovery. Active recovery is now part of the training cycle, see details below. Please use the forum to clarify things and to take your training to the next level. 

Active Recovery  –   This is aimed at doing a non weight-bearing form of exercise as a form of recovery. If you are an experienced cyclist we can discuss you using cycling as a form of recovery. However, cycling can often have a reverse effect on the runner if everything is not in order with regards to saddle height etc. You need to recover during active recovery, so this is why swimming is often the better alternative.

You can print the program out and fill in your own comments and then as you develop you can ask further questions on the forum provided
