Welcome Dougie, i don't follow a particular plan, but when i have run to what you are after, it's generally been down to lots of consistent miles for a good block, and the key sessions for me are the medium long run (13-14 miles for me some do longer) with 8-10 miles of effort (circa goal marathon effort or pace), and the long run. Usually aim to get minimum of 5 long runs totalling 110 miles or more, and ideally get 8-10 long runs in of 20 miles + over the campaign.
JI - congrats on the cabbage patch 10, i read the good write up on FB.
TR - yup cold, i just bought a couple of cheap pairs of gloves so i have a pair to wear and throw if needed. I preferred the forecast a couple of days ago, the one i see now has it breezy (15-25km/hr). c'es la vie.
Al_P - good signs. more madness.
I'm still not sleeping well, and still got sore hips/glutes, but like you TR will start to ease off on the self massage and "testing" them, and hope 2 days rest see me raring to go Sunday morning. I plan to get there early to nab a locker/prob be sitting in the mens locker rooms/showers having a cuppa for a while if anyone else early.
Good luck again everyone up north too!
