How long will it take to see the benefits of running training?

As a rule it takes at least 10-14 days for your body to adapt to a training stimulus so don’t expect to see improvements overnight! The trick is not to force fitness, let it come to you. Gains in fitness take time so be patient and enjoy the journey.

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?
