Been panicking...and need help...
I got away with my simplistic juicyju half marathon training plan last year for my first one...but I think I need to get with the grown ups for my marathon training. I am rubbish at following plans and my current training is:
Intervals for 5k and 10k on Tues and thurs plus one mile swim
Park Run Sat plus one mile swim
Long run on Sunday increasing by 2k a week ( 24k tomorrow)
My worries are:
Is that enough?
Should I have more longer runs in the week?
Should I do other stuff?
Diet...a friend has advised me I need more protein etc...do I????
Fuel...anyone any recipes for those balls? I don't want to cock it up
I am aiming for anything around 5 hours although the route is a challenging one as loads of hills ( Cornish Alps!!!)
Here is the link if anyone fancies joining me?!!
Any advice from runners new and experienced very much welcome...Thankyou...
