For mara training, I run 4 times per week - LSR on Sunday, easy run on Tuesday, tempo or intervals on Thursday, parkrun on Saturday. The only x-training I do is BMF on Saturday.

I know I'll never get to be a three-hour marathonner on 4 runs and 30-35 miles a week but I really don't have the time / inclination to run 55-80 miles a week.

Mostly 4 times a week - club session or intervals on Tuesday, mid-length run on Thursday, shorter run or another speed session on Saturday depending on whether I'm training for something specific, LSR on Sunday. I found fitting something else in at the weekend was the easiest way for me to build up, and I seem to be used to it now.

Got something to say?
