What happened Fenners? Are you going to blog it, or write it up to give your insights about what was and wasn't in working training and how it manifested on race day? G

Just as Fetch is bouncing various training threads with marathon goal times, here's a bounce for a marathon (or half or 10K) training method that might interest people.

Give me a shout if you want more info.

Cheers, :-) G

About This Thread

Maintained by Lalli
This thread is for those who are currently doing or want to do Furman type training, to share tips, log progress etc.

What is Furman? Simply, it's "Run 3 days, do non-running exercise for 2-3 other days". And that's it really!

And here's a nifty little pace calculator courtesy of lunaman: fellrnr.com
