Marathon Training


So its nearly Brighton marathon time, I've been really committed to my new plan for the past 24 weeks, all in the aim to hit a sub 4 hour marathon. Its been a mix of 3 runs (tempo, intervals and long run) and strength and conditioning with weights. This is the 1st time I've followed this plan and I feel in completely different shape to the previous 3 marathons.

Is this good news.. We will soon find out...

I've also starting making the transition to triathlon training by getting  out on the bike and on the Ironman Wales bike course too.

After the Brighton Marathon I get 2 weeks off from structured training, but I'm sure I'll end up doing something and then its back to committed 20 week plan for Ironman Wales. I have struggled to get 1 session in a day for the marathon plan so I haven't a clue how I'm going to plan doublers.

I MUST... I WILL!

Ive also starting changing supplies for race day from ZipVit to Powerbar so its less for me to pack on race day and getting my gut used to the Powerbar brand. To be honest some of the stuff doesn't taste that bad.. I'm sure it will in 5 months time!

Motivation...

I've been really struggling with motivation recently, and its really effected my training. I've recently found some training partner...
