I'm at the start of a fairly focussed training programme for a Spring marathon (my first), and whilst I am enjoying a 3 session a week programme at the moment, I feel I could do with adding a 4th in the next few weeks.
Currently, I am running a short easy run (5-8 miles) on a Tuesday; an tempo / speed session on a Thursday (5 miles), and a long run (11-13) miles on Saturday or Sunday. Each session is getting slightly longer or more intensive each week (e.g. the long mile is increasing a mile each week). I'm also trying to fit in a gym session, focussing on leg and core strength.
So, in terms of a 4th running session, when and what should I do? I recognise it should be fairly easy, but when should I fit it in? Does Monday sound about right (ie. 2 days after the long run)?
