Steve Cram and the Bristol Half Marathon
I can hardly believe that a whole week has gone by without me writing a post about the brilliant talk/Q & A workshop given for the Bristol Half Marathon. It has been a busy week; my book Go Faster Food has become available for pre-order, I've been getting ready for theStockholm marathon on Saturday, my eldest daughter has started her GCSEs and the kid's half-term has crept up on me rather too quickly.
- Build up a good aerobic foundation before you start training hard
- Train at least three times a week, with one long run, one speed session and one steady run.
- Alternate your interval/speed sessions to make it more fun (fartlek, tempo runs, 1 min fast, 2 mins slow etc)
- Warm up and warm down properly, think about stretching during and after runs (but not before the run) and stretching late at night before you go to bed
- Listen to your body, don't overtrain or start doing too much too soon, as this will normally lead to injury
- Refresh targets, be realistic with your ambitions
