Route Information

Throughout this process, you’ll have heard me say and seen me write that your expectations and your plan will make the crucial difference to your race.  That’s because your training, which I hope you’ve enjoyed in the last 14 weeks, will deliver you to the start line in the best possible condition, and thereafter, it’s

The night before

It was the night before Oceans and all through the house… One week to go, and it’s time to put into action all your plans, to reap the rewards of all your training, and to cash in on all your sacrifice and work. But, it’s also important to get the last few days just right,

Pacing yourself in the race

We’re counting down the days now, the training is (mostly) done and the objective now is making sure nothing goes “wrong” in the last two weeks!  Not be all fire and brimstone, but the point is that with so little time remaining, we’re in the territory where there’s not a lot you can do to

The Taper

We are now only three weeks from race day, and it’s time to start winding it down, at least in terms of volume!  This is the part of the training programme where you’ll have to test your ‘faith’ in the process! If you’ve had a good few months, and been disciplined and diligent, done the

Hill Running

As race day approaches, it’s time to start preparing your mind, and your body, for the challenges thrown at you by the race route.  I’m talking specifically about the hills, though obviously the length of the run, half or Ultra, is another major challenge. But what makes these races particularly tough is that they put

Maximizing Recovery

Six weeks to go, and we are now at the business end of the programme.  I hope that you’ve built successfully to this point, and that you’re feeling as though those kilometers have laid down a platform that will allow you to kick on towards peak volume in the next three to four weeks. That’s

Nutrition

 We’re now halfway into the preparation for your Two Oceans half or Ultra marathon, and over the next few weeks, we’ll hit peak volume, with your longest long runs and highest weekly distances. You’ll also notice an increase in the intensity of training, with a few more sessions to prepare you for the hills,

Breathing right

You might think that being taught how to breathe properly is a ridiculous idea. Surely, we KNOW how to breathe? Isn’t it instinctive? It is, after all, one of the very first things you ever did when you entered this world (unless there was a problem, in which case it was an emergency!). But for
