good stuff by Bud
the right mix of caution and encouragement, much needed by the over-enthusiastic, and by the overweight !!!
many thanks (from a man with sore calfs) from oxfordshire
I hope you had a good Christmas and are well. I would say you are one of the most inspirational coaches I've met in my 39 years of running. So athlete focussed, I wish I had that skill.
If you have time I wonder if you could answer my query. I've done quite a lot of middle distance running but entered two marathons this year. London and Berlin. Never done one before. I'd like to finish Berlin in 3.30 ish , I'm 50.
I found a 16 week schedule on the RW website for a sub 3.30. I started it early in case of injury I'm up to week 7 - ran 43 miles last week long run 18 miles which I managed ok about 3 mins less than the target time.
I have entered a 5 mile race 1/2/2015, a 20 mile race 8/3/2015 and a half marathon 22/3/2015. I'm unsure how to adapt the schedule to fit these in.
I also need to finish it about 5 weeks later than it finishes!! I was thinking of starting at week 2 again? The schedule I am following is the RW'S Ultimate Marathon sub 3.30 schedule posted 7/5/2000.
Best of luck with your athletes. Remember to look after yourself.
