BGR - Week 1 - Training Plan?

Just putting the final touches to a BGR training plan that will take me to May/June next year.

The first few weeks are as follows..... any thoughts?

Week 1

Monday Weight Training / 4 Miles - DONE
Tuesday Weight Training / 8 Miles - DONE
Wednesday Weight Training / 4 Miles - DONE
Thursday Rest or Swimming- R& R all the way - DONE
Friday Weight Training / 8 Miles - DONE
Saturday R&R / - Done- DONE
Sunday Long fartlek 2 hrs - Race if appropriate

Will repeat this for week 2,

Any feedback on Feet of ascent etc, read so much but i think you need to plan and go as you feel fit for the first 2 months to get to a level of general strength and endurance.

Stick with it and you'll get there. They say a big factor is getting plenty of ascent in the legs beforehand. Good luck!

I wouldn't worry too much about ascent etc just yet. first priority is to set an actual date, get it registered THEN worry about the training. This is definately the 1st hurdle, although you could just tell me to sod off!!

Hi Emma/Matt cheers for you comments, conscious that i do need to get climbs in! setting a date, yes i have set a date 14th/15th May, but might start on the 13th, which is a Friday! and am working to that, for sure, did you have a specific training schedule Emma?
