RE: LYDIARD OR DANIELS?
Sorry this has taken so long.
If I was you I would work on gradually geeting the long runs up in mileage.
But not every day.
Many years ago I ran a weekly schedule along the lines of what I show below.
It took a while to get where I could do the Sunday run and not still feel 'shattered' on a Monday.
Sunday : 2 to 21/2 hrs (Usually a hilly course .. )
Monday ; 45 to 60 mins as I felt with maybe 6 to 10 easy strides.
Tuesday : 1 to 11/2 hrs steady on hilly course. (generally this was around 12 to 13 miles)
Wednesday: As for Monday but more like a fartlek or maybe a 3 to 6 mile Timetrial depending in what was happening around the traps with the Harrier season.
Thursday : As for Tuesday
Friday:30 to 45 mins easy, usually on a Golf Course
Saturday : Club run which could be anything up to 11/2/hours.
Now when I did this I was working full time and did not get out until around 5:15 pm.
What I found was I could hold together nicely for quite a few months doing that programme. My consistency was good. When I cranked it up too much I got minor infections/colds etc. So I held pretty much to that programme.
The Key for me was the Sunday run. If I did that the rest of the week 'fell' into place.
As I said above, I have never run 100mpw. But I have diaries that show yearly mileages of around 3250 to 3500 (When I was on the Mileage kick). Consistency is the Key in this game of Distance running.
Hope that helps a little
