I'm currently training for my first marathon (Sunderland, April 28th). Until recently I was just a recreational runner: 3 or 4 days a week I'd run at an easy pace for 30-60 minutes. Over the last couple of weeks I've started doing 3 mile tempo runs and slowly increasing my long runs (my last was 9 miles). My new schedule looks like this:
Sun- 6 miles at easy pace
Mon- 3 mile tempo
Wed- Long run
Thu- 3 mile tempo
Running and resting on these days best fits my schedule so I won't be changing that. My idea is to keep the other 3 runs the same each week and increase my long runs each week. I want to get up to a run of around 30 miles before the marathon (I know a lot of programs peek at about 20 miles but i would rather know I can manage beyond the race distance).
Is this a feasible training program?
