Linton,that's a good 10k time.Give the 10k race a go,you'll love it,I promise!!
Good luck for your HM,enrvuk,hope it goes well.I prefer cold weather training as well,just as long as it's dry though.
Nice speedy mile,alipat,bet that hurt!
Best of luck to your Dad and yourself,Will.Looking forward to your race report.
Great consistent running,Hazelnut,as usual.
Legs feeling heavy all week,don't know if it's the circuit training on the Monday,it's very competitive and I'm pushing myself to keep up with the young dudes.Did hill sprints on Wednesday but just couldn't get my legs going.
8 miles along the canal this afternoon,very busy with walkers and boaters.Spotted a grey heron,no doubt will have a beady eye on this years ducklings.

Welcome, james, and well done. Generally speaking, no - most marathon plans max out at 20 miles and some of the more advanced ones go to 22. Going further than that isn't particularly beneficial, since it requires too much recovery time and that will negatively impact the rest of your training in the following week(s).
Good effort this morning Cal and congrats on the 5k PB. Always nice to set a new PB.
Welcome James. That's a great run considering you have no immediate plans to run a full marathon. Do you often push out long distances like that for fun?
Welcome,James,fantastic 20 miler,I'm in the same boat as you,plenty of HM,have my first full marathon in October.
Nice 14 miles,alipat,always better to run your second half quicker.Hope your foot injury clears up.
Well done on your first HM,envruk,you'll beat your goal on your next HM.Unlucky that you came down with the lurgy before your race.
Great 10k race,Linton,fantastic time.Glad you enjoyed the race day experience.Hope your ankle injury clears up.
Wow,Will,pass on my congratulations to your Dad.Very inspiring,hope I'm still running at that age.You'll have to get some father and son T-shirts for your next race together.My Dad is only a year older and I know what he'd say if I asked him to go running with me!
Nearly forgot,well done to you,Will.Great photos,looked like a lovely day for a race.
10 easy miles this afternoon,9 on the canal,1 around town.
