Hi all, bit about me - I have some experience of running as I have raced two half marathons. This January I decided to focus my training and enter more races as previously my training consisted of just steady jogging over similar distances.
I have entered the following races:
Feb 24th - 10k hilly (non-pb friendly)
March 17th - 10k off road water adventure race (again non-pb friendly!)
March 24th - 10k (pb friendly)
April 13th - 8k off road water adventure race (non-pb friendly)
May 12th - Half Marathon (pb-friendly)
I have followed a 7 week training plan, training 3 times per week including runs of different distances, intensities, speed work, circuit training and the occasional gym visit once a week.
My question is - after the first race shall I follow a longer race plan and just taper it for each race or should I try to stick to a fresh plan leading up to each race?
My focus is really the half marathon in May - the lenghts of my runs will have to increase at somepoint yes?
How much can I step my training up between races over the weeks/months?
