I am belatedly starting training for Dublin marathon. I have about 10 weeks.
I have cobbled together a rough training plan, which is basically as follows:-
Sunday LSR @ approx 10:30 min/mile
Tues 5- 6 miles slow & steady @ 10:30 min/mile
Thurs 5 - 7 miles temp (including 2 miles at half mara pace (9 min/mile), building up to 5miles over time)
Sat 4 miles slow & steady (10:30 min/mile)
As background, I have been running for about 2 and a half years and completed Edinburgh marathon in May this year. I was disappointed with my time (4:41), and as hoping to get below 4:30 in Dublin in October.
My half mara PB is 1:59, and 10k pb is 52mins. I know I'm slow !!!!!
I have maintained a reasonable base through the summer keeping long runs at 10 - 13 miles, with overall mileage around 25 miles per week, but no tempo or intervals at all (although I have started doing a little trail and fell running, which feels tough!!), and no races.
So basically my question is this : should I be doing more? Am I doing too much at one pace? I can't fit any more sessions into my week due to family commitments, so that's all I've got to play wth.
Sorry this is a bit long winded. Any advice would be much appreciated?
