am looking for some advice. I have been running for 2.5 years now, completed London in 2011 (approx 5hrs as didnt train properly), approx 10 half marathons and am running LDN again this year.
My issue is training. I have read dozens of articles and training p;ans but dont seem to be able to settle in to one regime. the only constant I always keep to is my heavenly long run on a Sunday. The fartlek/easy run/tempo run program just doesnt seem to work for me. Does anyone have any good but far simpler ideas to build my fitness as i feel i havent got any fitter for a very long time and I want to run faster and further? looking for a program that involves maybe 3 runs per week (on top of my long run). 10k pace is approx 12k/hr if that helps.
My other issue is energy. Due to the nature of my job, I have to train v early in the morning (6.45). i want to run for an hour but, despite trying to hydrate properly and eat a banana, I am never anything like the same runner frst thing in the morning as I am during the day.. Does anyone have any tips?
Thanks in advance for any help
