    Thanks Paddy.

    I’ve got until next April, so plenty of time to try these things out.

    Hello once again.

    I have taken stock and looked into the things you have mentioned. I have a couple of extra questions.

    1. David – you say to execute the workouts at the top of the zone. Not all, but at least the hard days. How do you define the hard days? I’m assuming you don’t mean the foundation runs, so do you mean the Tuesday and Friday tempo/ intervals, or the Sunday endurance runs? Or is it the foundation runs? If I can manage it for all my runs in the week, should I try to do that?

    2. Strength. I downloaded the premium maintenance plan a few weeks ago, and I like it. I am running a target half marathon in November, and will go for my sub-3:00 marathon next April in London. Should I download the HM strength plan and the marathon strength plan? That’s three strength plans overall, and they don’t look very different from the previews. If they are different enough to justify buying all three versions, then I will. If not, it would be great to get your opinion.

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you for the clarification. Level 2 it is

    Thanks again David,

    I have a follow-up question on the strength plans. It appears that there a few options.

    First, the free plans vs the premium ones. What are the differences? I’m happy to buy a premium one, but I wonder what the advantages are.

    Secondly, I don’t know whether to go for level 1 or 2. I have no experience of strength training, and I’m 46 next month. I use a level 2 marathon running plan, so should I use a level 2 strength plan? Or should I play it safe and go for level 1, given my age and inexperience?

    Thank you.

    Thank you very much for the info. I’m looking forward to seeing the updates. The 2021 changes really took it up a level for me, and I benefited from it for sure.

    Thanks for letting us know. Will we be notified when the plans update, so we can unload and reload? I have a marathon plan starting on December 6th, so will probably have to reload at some point.

    Thank you David.

    Hi again.

    I’m now in week 4 of the new level 2 marathon plan and I have noticed that it is far higher mileage than the 2020 version and I am feeling quite tired as a result, and it is a bigger time commitment.

    I’m not quite sure what I’m asking here, but would you expect a better race result from this new plan and significant extra mileage?

    Many thanks!

    Dean

    That’s great – thanks Matt.

    I can’t wait to get started, not least because the new workouts give an extra bit of variety over what I am used to from the existing plans.
