I realised today after my long run, that I’d better get my sh!t together / a training plan together for my long runs.
After not many miles in February (and a cold) … I’m did 15 miles today and feel fine having done it … I seem to have recovered ok. But I’ll need to get the long runs in if I plan to do the Strathearn marathon at the start of June.
So here’s my long runs plan…
24/2 15M easy
9/3 13.1M Balloch to Clydebank half
That’ll be about 14-15 weeks training, including 5 long runs at 18 miles or over. The blocks above are also planned along with my cycle with the long run between weeks 3-4 being a recovery week.
The date at the start is the Monday date and I’ll run at the weekend – Saturday or Sunday. I’ll continue to mix my runs, 3 runs a week, with 1-2 strength sessions.
