I have bought the book, honest, and found it very useful...but at the moment it's at the bottom of a heap of 100 boxes (mid house move) and I can't get to it. Can anyone tell me what I should be doing at the start of a marathon plan? I suppose I'm going to do something like his plan A. Have decided to enter either chester (5 October) or Chesterfield (14 sept) so I'd like to get on with it pretty sharp. Have been running moderate mileage recently, including a weekly 2h long run, so I'm hoping I can dive straight in at the appropriate place without too much risk.

I have never followed one of his plans, just the general principle of threshold work, VO2 max intervals and a LSR.
I believe that for marathons, he adds MP runs, though it is clear that he doesn't consider them key.

My book is in the loft though,and whilst I probably know where it is, its like an oven up there.

If nobody turns up with something more specific, I'll venture up when its cooler.

Thanks! Actually, I now see there's a new edition (mine is 2nd). The updates sound like they might be worth having - half marathon, age-related stuff and different marathon programmes are all of interest to me, so maybe it's worth the ~10 quid to save me rooting thorough my heap of boxes. Anyone else got comments on the new version?

Pretty sure I read that the new edition only differs from the older ones in terms of the LSR pace, but I could be wrong.

I was hoping this was about drinking JD. Terribly disappointed. :(

Haha, FR, yes, tips like: 'If you are still thirsty 3-4 hours after the marathon, keep drinking.'
