That looks like a very good program. You have a good range of interval, continuous and fartlek work in there so there is good variety in your training.

Fletch, where do you do your 400, 1800 metres etc, have you got a local track you use?

Looks a really tidy program.

*text deleted*, seems like im undertraining at the moment. if i trained like that and stuck to it i'd be superman in a few weeks. or not get be able to out of bed for being knackered and not being able to go to work. better get my finger out, prmc soon.

i was thinkin more along the line fast 3 milers every second day then a 5 miler at the end of the week. upper body stuff in between, then take the weekend of from running. maybe some hillwalkin at the weekend?

i just dont want to injure myself before prmc. knock me back. suppose its different for everyone. im probably a bit older so *text deleted* and more in the back of my mind.

That seems like a hell of a lot of training to me, how long did it take you to build up such training volume?

Probably a good 3 months. Only just started this serious training. I have slacked on the gym work this week, as my shoulders were killing me from where I tried a one rep max on the bench, *text deleted* pretty pointless but I had to show a mate up :P.
And thanks for the positive replies :)

Looks dam good on the running side of things,just makesure you dont over do it mate!

I wish i could do that volume of running. Dam shin splints! Im currently only running twice a week,but as of next week will add another small one in and see how i cope. So far ive been supplimenting running with rowing sprint,and bike intervals to simulate it as much as possible.

Unfortunatly mate mine seem to have stayed for over 6 months. I had a PRMC date of mid september last year,and had to cancel. I tried comming back to running around Xmas time and had no end of problems,im now running once a week (With MidnightAssasin) up our local downs,3-4 miles with sprints etc. Then a smaller sprint session mid week. Im holding up good at the moment,so its just a case of slowly bringing more stuff in!

Good luck with the program though mate,if you can handle it im sure it will stand you in good stead for a PRMC and RT on the running side of things.
