I'm a fairly optimistic, motivated sort of a bloke - and not after any namby-pamby hand-holding but just wondered if others feel/have felt the same
Have done HIM's last few years, and followed the Intermediate Fink plan for weeks 1-10 to build a base, then modified weeks 11-22 or so prior to the race. This year am 'going long' for the first time - and now in week 14 in preparation for Forestman (which doesn't have its own thread ).
Base period went well, and sticking to the plan at the moment in the build phase. But am now starting each session with a feeling that may not get all the way through it! However after 30-40mins feel ok and finish the job feeling strong and as if I could go a bit further after all. This all starts again the next day.
Am hoping this is just normal as this volume of training is something I haven't done before, and fingers crossed it is a good sign that don't finish each session completely spent?
Just thought it might be useful for long-distance virgins like me to know how you experts feel during the middle of training plans... the next few weeks look similar volumes so I guess your body gets used to it before upping things again in the peak phase?
