And this is the time to be very careful. Listen to your body and hopefully an easy week coming up. Well done.

Thanks guys. I'm following the Pfitzinger plan very closely now - it certainly seems to be working very well this time - so it's another big week to come now, with a "recovery" week after that.

Not really sure why things seem to be going so well - the only real changes since last time are a bit of a step-up in the mileage (I was doing the <55 mile/week plan last time, now I'm mainly following the <70 mile/week plan), and I'm also eating much better now - very little sugar, plenty of carbs and protein (and I'm about 4kg lighter than this point last time).

Just need to keep this momentum going for another 10 weeks...

Glad you're back on top Paul - this is great!

Could you point me in the direction of the Pfitzinger plan? Do you have a book you'd recommend? I've entered Copenhagen (end of May) and I'm also going to be chasing a sub 3h. I think some structure would definitely help in the next few months!

I have a copy. You can borrow it like Carys and Tom did. You might even remember you borrowed it unlike they did.

This is the book:

Well worth reading from cover to cover, not just the training plans - lots of useful advice in there.

What Paul C? You got it back didn't you! Yes it might have taken a while...
I'm glad the training is going well Paul fingers crossed for Manchester.

I did remember I borrowed it quite often, just never when you, me and the book were in the same place :-)

Great work Paul, keep it up!
