    Hi David, Thanks again. Yes, I have 100% confidence in the plans it has served me well in the past 2 years. Should we update the modified plan into training peaks then? Where there any other changes to the marathon level 2 plan? I did have Covid at the start of the year and feel like it still has a small effect.

    Also, read your post on Heart rate variability and signed up using the HRV4training yesterday and really interested in the data that will come through in the future to determine running dynamics to improve running performance.

    Thanks for these articles and it is one of the reasons I use your running program.

    Thanks again Matt, it’s a fascinating point, and it is something that I need to give some serious thought to; currently, I’m just enjoying running in races after COVID last year. I have only been running seriously since July 2019, running my first marathon in October 2019 with a goal of Boston qualification time and achieved a 3:19 time then Covid hit when preparing my second one in July 2020 after stop-start running my second one virtually in September with a time of 3:01 using the 80/20 program. The third one was April this year with a shortened program of 13 weeks due to racing in January achieving my goal of a sub 3 hours (2:59:54) then I have again turned around after 10 weeks to run a couple of weeks ago, achieving a 2:57 time my next one is in 11 week which I’m joining at week 8 of the level 2 marathon training program. My question is, how much do you feel that I could gain by completing an 18-week program? Is there any time that is not doing a complete training cycle appropriate?

    Thanks again Matt & David. A couple of follow on questions
    1/ Would a half marathon after three weeks be doable?
    2/ What would you say the minimum time would be between marathons?

    Hi Dave

    Not exactly. I was in my last week before the marathon, the cycle would go now

    Week 16
    Week 17
    Week 16 (this week)
    Week 18 (next week) marathon on the 11 July

    That’s depletion, not deletion 🙂

    in reply to: Delayed Race #12996

    Hi Dave, not at all, and it makes sense. A question week 16 has a marathon pace 31km trial long run which I would think would be too much 7 days out. Should this run be a 31km deletion run instead? or run the last 10km at marathon pace.

    Thanks, David, I think that I will take the day off as this is my “A” race and don’t what to anything different from the past tapers.

    in reply to: Stryde Unit #12155

    Thanks again, Matt; how would you recommend setting it up, e.g., using the current pace and heart rate for several weeks to obtain the data, then calculating the power or going and conducting the recommended test?

    in reply to: Stryde Unit #12120

    Thanks Matt, I assume that you use it the same way as e.g HR in the training plans and set it up in setting profile on training peaks

    in reply to: Diet Quality Score (DQS) #11747

    Thanks, Matt

    Question where would you but in the calculator for pre-workout / post drinks that contain, e.g. protein and carbohydrate as an energy source?
