Good day!

Questions you are asking concern the field of methodology and theory of physical education. In short, if you want to progress, the load should be adequate to your level of training. 

Most of your training sessions you should train in the aerobic zone (up to 150 bpm); also, you should avoid long staying in the anaerobic zone (close to your maximum heart rate). In this case, adaptation processes will be predictable and positive dynamics won't be long in coming.

First Marathon at Age 55

Good day.

I'm 55 and I've been running for a long time, my usual distance is 10-15 km and 21 sometimes. My average pace is 6:15 min/km. I do interval running sometimes as well.

Now, I want to run my first marathon. Is it enough to run 10-15 km every other day at a slow pace without ambition (I can talk during running) or is it advisable to move on?

Thank you.

Recommendations on Run For Tall People

Good afternoon,

My height is about 2 meters. I know about recommendations on power trainings for tall people. Are there recommendations for such people if we say about long-distance running (half-marathon, marathon)?

How Much Should I Run If My Weight is High

I have lots of weight. At the moment I run 5 km every two or three days, plus I train in the gym. I limit my food consumption but sometimes I can break my diet and begin to eat a lot.     

I would like to take part in a marathon.        

How many times a week do I need to run (how many times a week and how long should my running training be)?

Adaptation Period to Low Heart Rate Training Loads

What period, in your opinion, is required for physiological adaptation to low heart rate training loads (slow running for building an adequate aerobic base) and whether or not faster sessions, strength exercises, bodyweight moves or gym exercises (physical fitness/ running-specific exercises) should be included during this period? Beginners and/or runners after a break/sickness can be used as an example.

Thank you!
