Strange place to put a Marathon training plan, a sprinting site - but some have asked to see how i plan to attack this event.
Background - 800m - 1min51s - a solid 13yrs ago
- 1500m - 4:04 - On grass 13yrs ago - potentially went faster in a 5km road race last month - but pulled out at 2km....
- 8km - 24min 40 - again 13-14yrs old
Current times - 10km - 35:06 - Very Hot and slow course
- 20km - 1hr 25min - Hot but really only a jog
-Half Marathon - 1hr 27min - Woke up that day with a head cold, so pretty slow.
Goal race - Gold Coast Marathon - normally the end of June, start of July (Winter here)
Current weather - 1st month of Summer
Current condition - Struggling with the Heat - can run ok when ready, but running Everyday is a struggle simply from trying to re-hydrate from the last run workout. Looking to hopefully adapt to the heat in the next couple of weeks, and in January start running every Day.
Current Goals - Adapt to heat
- Adapt to LONG runs - One 2+HR run each wkend and 2 x 1.5hr runs during the weekdays. (these one could include some circuit session which can total up to 8km or so)
Max Heart rate - 183
Lactate Threshold - 156 (last tested in Feb this yr)
Resting HR -43 (it's been 6months since i last tested)
