|Subject: ||RE: 50+ Masters Training and Racing Open Forum|
...after running "competitively" for almost 30 years and 16 marathons, I feel I have a pretty good idea of what training principles work for me. I have glanced through most of the popular training books/articles out there and gleaned bits and pieces from them to make up what I use today.
My experience is nowheres as great as yours, and I too have gleaned information from established training books, but mostly lots of articles. I'm still very much a work in progress; I use McMillan's paces as a reference point, but then simply go with what I've got time (or facilities, or gumption) to do. I wish I could say I have a good sense of what works for me. I do know some things that don't, however.
That being said though, at 53 years of age, I'm certainly not going to be setting any new PRs, so the main goal is to get to the start line uninjured, have fun during the event, and run to the best of my ability on that day. :)
Yeah, I totally get that....but I still can't help myself from continuing to tilt at the windmills of time.
It takes about three months, which I break into thirds.
Interesting. I'm guessing it isn't quite as long going the other way, other than, perhaps, upper-body issues and working on technique.
