BobMac104315mFeel good.Looking forward to getting back to regular running this week 

Its been 5 weeks (?) since taper began so iam getting a bit anxious to start back following a regular plan. going to go for a speed session with the local club on tuesday i think to see what thats all about. did a few strides yesterday after a brisk 4miler and i think i am good to go but will continue to monitor as the week goes on.


(table worked!)

Can i ask why we are skipping week 2? at the end of week 4 he recommend a race and i think a few have signed up for Jingle Bell on 3rd Dec which fits in at the end of the 4 weeks....just wondering??

Simply because you are two weeks out from the Marathon. Your body should feel recovered enough to the point where you are able to resume mid mileage low intensity

The aim will be to include some very light 5k paced work the week before Jingle Bells just to introduce your legs to running at this pace before you shock the body with the race

400m intervals are a classic session although at this time of the year there will be some clubs doing Fartlek type runs which are basically X min hard running usually follow by the same easy jogging in between reps.

What club are you going to?
