Well done, Jools. Hopefully you can kick on now.
That's some manual record keeping, PMJ!
Mike, I have tried different methods. My first mara in 2014 I did p and d to 55 miles. It was a big step up and I had a 5 month old and a 3 year old at the outset and I recall being knackered all the time.
In 2016 I was training to the run less run faster model and did 3.08 off an average of roughly 27 miles a week. I then sort of progressed to more conventional mara training. My rolling 12 month average right now is 41 miles a week. That then factors in holiday, tapers, recoveries etc.
In the 13 weeks over July, August and September before Yorkshire October mara my average weekly mileage was 49, with a peak at 63. I think it was largely similar in the 13 weeks before London last April.
Very easy few days since Tuesdays mini session and a sports massage Wednesday night. Rest day today and then a short shake out with strides tomorrow. Wind forecast is still looking troublesome sunday morning.
