Peter B Train for your first full marathon Challenge

Contributorgold Peter B Had an encouraging week when I've found that I can enjoy running again. Started feeling better on my 5K run on Thursday, and then even better on Sundays' 12K run. I'm back :)
Now I can start building speed and stamina again without having my will to live run away screaming and my legs refusing to move. Still need to sort out the pain in my calf, perhaps some foam-rolling and stretching could do me some good. Always worth a try.
Will also try to incorporate more drills to better my running form. During my illness it has deteriorated a bit, but at least I've managed to maintain my "new" upped cadence. So, more to come later as we move towards showtime.

Peter B Train for your first full marathon Challenge

Contributorgold Peter B Soooo... Back again after a month of illness, holidays and all the other things that gets in the way of plans.
Slowly getting back on plan after being struck by a virus that kept me from running for 12 days and still affects my breathing which means that my fast runs have been put on hold for now. Still trying to get the distance in according to plan, but I suspect I'll have to revise my finish time again. I hope to work towards a 4h time, but we'll see how quickly I can recover from this annoying virus.
On the plus side is that the knee is coming on well at least and gives me less worry for each day. I now need to ramp up my stretching to get the hip flexors and other bits up to date. I also think I have cracked the cadence hack. I've noticed that by increasing my "standard" cadence from 80-ish to 90-ish I can run faster with the same effort. My standard now is app.90-92 which has cut about 30 seconds of per K. Again, thanks James :)
So, hoping to be back on plan in not too long and then it's just onwards and upwards. #roadtoparis

Peter B Train for your first full marathon Challenge

Contributorgold Peter B So, back on plan. Or rather on my "new" plan. Asics has very kindly decided that my 4:15 target was too slow and updated my plan to 3:45 after reviewing my uploaded runs. Thanks so much Suunto for grassing me up! :)
At the same time I'm now entering the "Get Faster" period which brings me out of the comfort zone a bit with tapered runs at a pace I only previously used in races. But I actually managed to surprise myself with being able to run at a faster pace over a longer distance than I thought really. I should probably thank James Dunne at Kinetic Revolution as well for cleaning up my running. Check it out yourselves, it's a good way of becoming a better runner no matter what level you are.
So, 6 more weeks of speedwork mixed with longer runs ahead of me. Hoping my sore knee continues to get better and that my achilles tendon would loosen up. Small issues in the big picture, but you want rid of it to concentrate on the plan. #roadtoparis
