Jomo, I've never had a coach, rarely follow a plan, but if you trust the coach and he/she can explain their thinking around the sessions I'd think you're best to forget about your previous marathon training, trust the coach, and their processes, and see what it delivers.

You ran close to a PB over the HM off this training so somethings going well.

Good to hear that you have been able to build up after your long lay off and get back in to such good shape jomo. I agree with the others - trust your coach.

I don’t like big chunks of MP and the JD plan seems quite down on them though it includes 3 (in 18 weeks) which I mostly replace with races. So I maybe do one or two.

Most MP done outside a race ever is a 10 mile.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the feedback - was just nervous about throwing away my comfort blanket of long MP runs.

Take a look at the elite jack Daniels plan JDA there are some pretty nasty long tempo runs in there
