So for Boston, I'm going to do my own thing, but incorporating elements of the schedule I used for Cardiff. I want to achieve the following:
I can't get everything into 1 week, so here is what a typical fortnight looks like. It's not a schedule as such, but a 'principle'. One thing I need to do is know when I'm overdoing it and back off if need be:
|Tuesday||7||Gym session am, steady marathon pace club run pm|
|Thursday||5||Recovery (with club - need to ensure I don't get pulled along too fast!)|
|Friday||8||Tempo - middle 3 miles at half marathon to 10k pace|
|Monday||0||'Rest' - gym session|
|Tuesday||11||5 slow am, 6 steady pm with club|
|Thursday||7||Intervals with club - long reps (aerobic)|
Each month I'll incorporate a recovery week where I drop the mileage a bit and maybe add a rest day or 2 (that's proper rest - not gym sessions!).
I'll build gradually to this through November, hold this through mid-December onwards, and maybe add some sharpening/VO2max sessions in March.
