As I am taking it easy in recovery from the ROC Marathon my attention is focusing toward developing a plan for a fall marathon. Historically I am self-coached with brief periods in the past of structured "Club Training". To get to the next level will take a change from previous training or the results may be the same or slower.
Initially, the plan is to follow Pfitzinger's Advanced Marathoning >70 M for 18 weeks. When developing this site and exploring others its peaked my interest to consider the Lydiard method. Awhile back I was given Daniels' Running Formula as a gift and found VDOT and other concepts hard to follow. Everything was just too technical, but now it's time to reconsider.
Wait, what's the difference between Daniels and Lydiard?
Recovery running this week is going great, very happy with taking the rest immediately follwing the ROC as the hills really pounded my legs.
