I’ve started using the official Gold Coast Marathon Training Diary. This plan involves more ‘speed’ training (for example doing six 2min runs as fast as you can with a 1min break in between), but probably less distance overall than I’ve been doing. It will be interesting to see how it compares.
Last Thursday I did the 6 by 2min repetitions and it felt easier at the time, but I’ve suffered from a bit more delayed onset muscle soreness (got that fancy title from a running website – it just means I felt stiff the next day or two).
I missed my long run on Saturday because we were at our church weekend away but I did a 50min run then and again this morning. I need to try and squeeze in a 3km Time trial tomorrow – it will be interesting to see what time I can do.
