I've been running for about a year and a half and apart from c25k I've never had a training plan. I'm doing the Berlin Marathon in September so though I'd start to take a look at the plans on the net. My aim is for a result of under 4 hours.
They all looked a bit complicated for me, so I've come up with the exact opposite just to see if it will work. The idea is I do the same runs throughout the week (time constraints in the morning come into play here!) just increasing the mileage a bit on my very slow long run every weekend. I'll time my long runs and races only.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday - 7 miles
Sunday (May) - 13m
Sunday (June) - 15m
Sunday (July) - 18m
Sunday(August) - 20m
Sunday(September) - 20+ miles for a couple of weeks then rest and race (28th)
Benchmark times are 47mins for 10k and I'll get a good hm time on monday in Milton Keynes. (If anyone cares I'm male, almost 30, 6ft2" and 12st).
Experiment starts tomorrow!
