was hoping to get some advice on my training, I am looking to do a marathon in the new year, I feel that lately I have plateaued in my training and I'm not sure why, I am 190cm 89kg with a bmi of around 24.8/25 and measuring my %bodyfat on my omron scales at home I vary from 14% to 20%
I run between 20 and 50 km per week and do acouple of hours cycling on top of that, I mix up my training so do interval running on short runs and max 150 BPM on long runs, however I don't seem to be knocking a lot off and making the strides I previously made I can run 5k at around 4m per km and that doesn't seem to be getting any lower, but but also my long range running is around 4m 45 per km and it doesn't seem to be lowering either.
i do feel that at 89kg I am quite heavy so would losing afew kilos help me? Maybe going on a low fat high protein diet?
Or am I looking in the wrong area
Thanks for help in advance
