Then cool down for the remainder of the miles.
This is the extension of the same workout approach from 2 weeks ago...

Wednesday: 70 minutes total. Begin SLOW like a short recovery run, and progress to no faster than normal easy pace throughout the run.  Complete Loki after the run.

Friday: 60 minutes easy running, then complete Setanta leg routine

Saturday: 16 miles with a fast finish. 12 easy, then 4 assertive by feel.

The following week will be a step-back week in terms of miles, for absorption of the work done to this point.

----------

 Steam Town Marathon Week 15

 

Monday: 70 minutes very easy, the complete Rogue medicine ball routine.

Tuesday: Intervals! Look for 10 total miles on this day, with the warm and cool up to you. The meat of the workout is 4 x 1600m (if you hit the track) or 4 x mile (on the road). Start the intervals at marathon pace, and hit just under half marathon pace for the final interval. Run a SLOW 400 in between intervals.

Wednesday: 70 minutes total. Begin SLOW like a short recovery run, and progress to no faster than normal easy pace throughout the run.  Complete Odin and Setanta after the run.

Thursday: Run 20 minutes easy to warm up. Then shift into marathon goal pace for 25 minutes (base this on a 3:10-3:15 target for now). Recover for 5 minutes (easy running), then run 5 x 30 seconds hard (10k effort) with 60 seconds recovery, then run easy to reach 75 minutes.

Friday: 60 minutes easy running, then complete Loki general strength routine

Saturday: 16 miles, steady easy

Sunday: Yours to finish the week. If you are over the weekly mileage target (65-70) already, take a rest day.

SteamTown Marathon Week 16

Monday: 60 minutes easy running, then Beast medicine ball routine

Tuesday: 16 miles, steady easy. I would shoot for a rolling hills route for this.

Wednesday: Short recovery day, 45-55 minutes at true recovery effort.

Thursday:
Look for about 10 miles total (warm and cool distances up to you), with 2 cycles of the following fartlek:
  • 5 minutes @ target MP
  • 2 minutes recovery
  • 4 minutes @ target MP -10 seconds per mile
  • 1 minute recovery
  • 3 minutes @ target HMP
  • 1 minute recovery
  • 2 minutes @ target 10k pace
  • 1 minutes recovery
  • 1 minute hard
  • 2 minutes recovery

Friday: 70 minutes, starting at recovery effort and finish at easy effort, then complete  Mjolnir general strength routine

Saturday/Sunday (your call on the order):
  • One day yours for easy/recovery running
  • The other a medium-long workout of 15 miles: Run 2 miles easy, then 2 miles of 400 at half marathon effort with 400 recovery. Then run 1 miles easy to a hilly area. Then run a steady moderate tempo over rolling hills (about 20-30 seconds slower than MP) of 3 miles, then run 2 miles easy. Then run 2 miles tempo at whatever effort you can maintain for the distance. Then run easy for the balance of the miles.

SteamTown Marathon Week 17


Monday: Yours

Tuesday: 10 miles with progressive effort segment in the middle. Run 3 miles very easy, then progress to half marathon effort by feel for mile 8, then run 2 miles very easy (recovery effort) to finish.

Wednesday: 55-60 minutes very easy recovery. Complete  Mjolnir strength routine

Thursday: 8 miles easy, then complete Setanta leg routine.

Friday: Hilly 5-mile trail race. Treat the warm-up like a 10k, with about 15 total minutes of jogging, progressing to 10k effort for the final 2 minutes. Then complete your drills, then strides. Hilly trail races are best run by effort...and I would go with 10k effort to start and then see what building you can do, dependent on course and competition, over the final 2 miles. With warm and cool, shoot for 10-11 miles on the day.

Saturday: Yours in between race and long run. Look for enough miles to get to 60 with the long run for the week.

Sunday: 16 miles, steady easy. Progressive run and race is enough quality for the week.


 SteamTown Marathon Week 18

 

Monday: 60 minutes easy, followed by Colossus medicine ball routine.

Tuesday: Look for about 9 miles total (warm and cool distances up to you), with30 minutes of fartlek (cycle through this until you get to 30):
  • 4 minutes @ target MP
  • 1 minute recovery
  • 3 minutes @ MP -10 seconds per mile
  • 1 minute recovery
  • 2 minutes @ target HMP
  • 1 minutes recovery
  • 1 minute hard
  • 2 minutes recovery

Wednesday: 50 minutes very easy recovery. Complete  Loki strength routine

Thursday: 9-10 miles on a hilly route, with easy effort on the uphills and flats, and assertive effort on the downhills (I want to get a lot of this eccentric work in to prep for the downhill course).

Friday: 60 minutes easy

Saturday: 15 miles, steady easy with 6 x 45 seconds moderate effort pickups (with 90 seconds recovery) starting around the 10 mile mark

Sunday: Yours to finish the week. If you are over the weekly mileage target (55) already, take a rest day.
