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 want to follow a published 16 week training plan for the London Marathon. Currently I run long runs of 12 to 16 miles at weekends. All the plans start with much shorter long runs (6-8 miles). Should I reduce my long runs when I start the plan or carry on until the plan catches up with me?
