Sounds like training is going great
Love all the nutritional advice from Ruth - I've actually found the nutritional side of things surprisingly interesting (yeah, ok, I'm a geek). That doesn't mean I always make the healthiest/best choices... but it is interesting nonetheless!
Angela well done again on your run - sounds like it's going really well!
Evening, how did the session go Sarah? Quick tempo run tonight, a mile warm up and then 4 milesprogressive with a little warm down and back in time for football on TV

Tomorrow is 8 or 9 but a little easier than last week I think, then push again on Thursday.
That's annoying about your new trainers. I've got to go and buy some new ones too. I'd hoped that my current ones would hold out until Paris, but when I wear them for over 10 miles I end up with sore footpads. Think I've given them a bit of abuse though with all the snow running and floods that I've been through.
What are you planning to do?
Not decided on pacing yet, and probably not in the best place to decide. Woke up with awful headache this morning, which cancelled my plans to go for a gentle run before my meetings in Dublin this morning. I always feel awful this time of the month.... totally dehydrated no matter what I do, and well, headache that doesn't go away,, made worse this time by getting on a plane last night.
Meetings done for the day, just working on some emails before totering off to the gym for an 8 miler on a treadmill... ugh... I might have to spice it up by going on the rowing machine instead. Too rainy to go outside (or rather inappropriate kit brought for such).
The time I ran my 7 mile pace a few weeks ago was average 8:45m/ml so given I will have tapered, and had an extra month of training, I think I should be able to aim for that pace for the whole race? What do you think?
Evening, I've had a dicky tummy too this week.
Well, this evening I have had to come home after half mile, my left leg has shooting pains up and down from the knee, not good! I usually get an episode of knee pain once during a campaign, I hope this is it for this mara. I ran on Tuesday OK but became aware of it yesterday, so I rested and we went out for a Pizza. Still plenty of time to get over it so not panicking.
Mrs P is going to Netball tonight I might go and watch
