Firstly, thanks to Eric, Rich and Robert for answering my previous query about the Hardest Workout. Having just completed Phase 2 Week 5, Day 3 had a slightly easier workout SPZ 6 instead of SPZ 7,…Continue

"Hi there, I have a question for you please. When you say that you did the foundation training as your training, is that all you did? That is, you didn't then do a 'marathon plan' after it? I am nowhere near running a marathon yet, I…"

"Heat is always going to slow things down, I think that was likely the biggest factor, but an amazing time anyway! Congrats!"

Second marathon completed - Gold Coast Marathon

Hi EverybodySo I just completed my second marathon a few weeks back, and used the foundation program for a second time to prepare for the race.I managed a 3:09:58, which was slower than my first marathon of 3:06:48 in January, and a lot slower than my intended sub 3 hour goal.I felt great for the first half of the race, but possibly went out a bit fast, with a split of 1:28:30. I started a little bit back in the field of 5,000 plus competitors at the Gold Coast Marathon, and maybe ran a little…See More

"Hi Patrick I've done the foundation program twice now for my first and second marathon, and I've found the distances more than adequate. My longest run in phase 1 was about 38km's, so not far off of race distance. I'm kind of…"

Robert Burpee replied to Shayne Francis's discussion Week 8 - Long run
"Hi Shayne, I agree with both Frank & Patrick. To me week 8 is a recovery week so use it as such. By your own admition you have a good base so enjoy the recovery week backing your off a bit. Rest & recovery is an integral part of getting…"

Francis Flynn replied to Shayne Francis's discussion Week 8 - Long run
"Good Morning Shayne, That's an interesting question, for me I would take it literally as I intemperate the book and go for the 2hr 30min irrespective of what you have done before. I can see your dilemma though....  but it is a rest and…"

Patrick Garrick replied to Shayne Francis's discussion Week 8 - Long run
"In my experience, the recovery week long runs end up being about 60-70% of the time of the previous week's long run. If you plan on sticking with with Eric's 3 hour max recommendation going forward, that would equate to…"

Week 8 - Long run

I have a question in regards to the Week 8 long run.Since this is my second run through on the Foundation Program, I started with a bit more of a base than before.With the Week 1 long run being 15 minutes longer than the longest run I had done in the previous 2-3 weeks, I ended up doing a 2 hours 25 minutes run for Week 1, since I was doing some slow 21km runs with a mate in the preceding weeks.This of course meant I was hitting some big mileage early on, with Week 6's run going for 3hrs 25…See More
