Still waiting to hear if I have got through the ballot like everyone else.
I have done 3 marathons now: 5hrs 11, 5hrs 40 and 5hrs 28. So I don't feel as though I need to follow a beginners program.
Am recovering from latest marathon at Loch Ness in 5hrs 28min, have a hamstring tear in July which cut training time a bit and so I decided to aim for sub 5.30.
Am aiming to build up a base for the next 3 months and then do a bit of faster work. I also plan to do a few longer and shorter races.
Today went out with a beginner so did 30 mins, I call this an easy recovery day. Aiming to do 45-60 per day 5 days a week, and one longer run of 2 hours plus once a week when not racing. And build up from there.
Anyone else aiming for sub 5 hours?
Next race Amsterdam Half marathon on Sunday, aiming for around 2.15-2.20.
