As a runner, I'm very interested in the 9 day week. (I have just been struck down with acute bronchitis, so I must be doing something wrong!) However I'm puzzled by this post. Don't triathletes need weight training, as promoted in "Fast After 50"?

Hi Joe, more sane and illuminating advice! Yes, I can see very clearly now that inconsistent workouts are my biggest limiting factor, but due to chronic disorganisation rather than over-training. I just need to be born all over again to be a successful runner and human being !!! I've been wanting to thank you for your book "Fast After 50". I am 74 and have long been committed to running AND weight training. Your book not only endorsed that, but has enthused me to go further in intensity. I was already doing intervals/hill repeats, but your very short (VO2max) and very long (lactate) intervals feel very powerful indeed. I'm really hoping to improve my 5k parkrun times as a result. If you are in the UK and available at 9am any Saturday morning you might enjoy a parkrun (free 5k time trial/quasi race. Greater London has 47 and counting, and they are popping up all over, abroad too. To me they are the most exciting development in running today. http://www.parkrun.org.uk/events/events/ You just sign up once for all online, print out your bar code and turn up on any day at any event - no race numbers, no advance commitment, but brilliantly organised online results. As well as your book, I appreciate your generosity in writing such long and thoughtful replies to queries here. I'm already looking forward to the next one. Very best wishes from Alexandra.
