I am training for my first marathon. I'm doing it alone (no club) and I am finding the amount of somewhat contradictory advice online a little difficult to sift through and sort!
I have a rough plan which has been drawn up to fit around family / work etc and has been loosely based on Paula Radcliffe / Hal higdon plans. I am aiming for a sub-4 marathon. I have run 4 halfs. all sub 2 with the best at 1:40
I know I am likely to get a load moire conflicting advice from you chaps but am interested to get some feedback nevertheless! I sometimes worry that I'm just chasing my tail! Thanks
My current plan
Mon - Rest (Sometimes Crosstrain/ Spinning / Gym)
Tues - 8 - 10 Mile (Tempo - Hilly)
Weds - 7 Miles Race pace (8:30 min Miles)
Thurs - 7 Miles (1 mile warm-up, 2 miles flat out, 1 steady, 2 flat out. 1 cool down)
Fri - Spinning and weights
Saturday - 3 - 5 miles off road with dog! Steady
Sunday - Long slow run (Currently running 16.5 miles. Building to 20 within next 5 weeks, a mile a week extra or so)
