I have a problem in trying to better my performance.
Every other marathon I do seems to be a disaster (I end up walking).
My finishing times vary from 3:31 to 4 hrs.
I have run for 10 years and try to do a marathon every 6 months.
I tend not to run every week but start a 12/16 week training schedule as necessary.
Did Paris April 02 in 3:31:30.
Felt OK afterwards.
Did Franfurt October 02 DNF!!!
Had to walk from 23 Kms....
I usually follow Hal Higdons schedules (for Franfurt I covered more than 600 miles further than before).
I do all the right stuff but still seem to fail every other time, wierd?
Anybody got any ideas as to how I can a)
I am 48 and weigh 11 stone.
Have access to a gym + can do long country runs.
Usual weekly mileage is 25, this goes up to 50 during training.
