Hello all I need some advice please. No actually a lot of advice!
Have not been training from Spring last year till Feb this year. In the meantime I put 2st in weigh on.
Since Feb I have lost 1 1/2 st and been training (and I think over training) like a tasmanian devil.
I have been doing quite a few half marathons and have been getting slower and slower, I picked all hilly and xc runs to make me stronger, I also swim cycle and go to the gym 2x a week in the last two months but as soon as I start exercising I feel fatigued and my muscles ache very early on.
I know I need to rest more but how much more? How?
I am doing my last long run next weekend and then I want to start doing shorter runs - but faster to work on speed, as I am doing my first Half IM in August. Do you think this is a good plan? (not the half - I just want to complete it to set a target for next year)
Also should I also do shorter fast bike rides and one long at the weekend from next week? Is that enough?
Also have a question about timing my summer hols but will post in a separate thread.
Look forward to your replies
