How can I progress my running training?

After several weeks your body will adapt to a training stimulus so in order to make further improvements in fitness you’ll need to progress your training. There are several ways that you can do this but it’s important to only adjust one variable at a time otherwise you risk injury.

  • Increase the volume of your running
  • Increase the frequency of your training
  • Increase the intensity (pace) of your training
  • Decrease the recovery periods during interval sessions.

I ran when I was younger did 2:44 marathon, had a break for 8 years and started again rather fat 7 years ago. 2012 after losing weight I did 3:08 and have steadily been dropping to 2:41 this year. I’m 50 next year and currently training on the 85mi + Pfitzingers Advanced plan. Do you think sub 2:40 is possible or will age get the better of me and how can I adapt the plan for the better?
