I've just been looking at 2 separate schedules, both supplied by RW for a 4.30 finish. Both online in “Training”
One of them, RW's Basic Marathon Schedules, Intermediate involves running 29-31 miles from week 1.
The other, called RW's Ultimate Marathon Schedule Sub 4.30 only starts with a 15 mile week over 5 days!! You dont get to run 30 miles till week 7.
They're both 16 week schedules by the way.
How can 2 schedules be so different and what are the advantages of one over the other?.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m always up for an easy life but if I were to follow the “ultimate” schedule, I’d actually have to cut BACK on training and I don’t do a lot now!
Does anyone have any ideas?
