  • 7 miles GA run for me - very tired so day off tomorrow before 20 miler hopefully on sunday. Fine line for me between putting more miles in and keeping any quality there...
  • Spoons - that's spot on - sore after running (like limping a bit) and first thing in the morning (barely stand on it)...Only have to limp out about  7-8 more weeks of training .... how long till you needed time off. I was doing the exercises but I …
  • Come on spoons - you cant let a Triathlete beat you .....
  • Sorry Macca - I could no help but sneak the extra 0.1 to make it a half marathon .... does that mean my whole training plan is shot to sh#t now? Jools - not sure if the PF is under control. Painful walking and limping a bit but no pain running ... …
  • Chicksta, I was thinking the opposite 4% on a slower time is more that 4% on a faster time!!! which makes them better value for money (Man maths)! 13.1 MLR for me today 1:40 min aerobic zone
  • I want some magic shoes as well........ Im waiting for the Nike Vapourfly 10%
  • Top effort TR, bit unpleasant running this weekend. M50 win is impressive!! No surprised no long runs with a 14m and 12m - that's 2 long runs in my book... Macca - you are tighter than me... (we as tight maybe)
  • No one told me about the Worthing half!!!!! Just checked and its £45 ... £45.......... Bit rich for me! That's errr £3.44 per mile (got the calculator out this time). About 55p a minute! Best of luck TR and Woky guys!
  • Joe / Spoons - made me laugh..... nice bit of competition there though! Watch out everyone Macca is Race hungry TR - Im in Worthing - whats happening this sunday?
  • Its all been happening here. I never really understood the long run should be 25% of total weekly mileage. that means everyone doing a 20 miler needs to be doing 60 miles per week, which most marathoners don't do (except people on here). Regardin…
  • That's the spirit Jools....
  • Advice taken Jools and just did an aerobic 7m run today. might try a MLR tomorrow. but Im falling apart. Sore ball of foot (left foot) PF right foot (heel hurts) pain inner lower shin. Apart from that all good......(only really concerned with PF…
  • Spoons - what was the outcome from the podcast - at work so cant listen......no point in LT pace or VO2 max? Sounds interesting I really recommend Brighton as Spoons says its one of my favourite marathons! Just checked P&D schedule and this we…
  • Actually AWC - you could run Brighton marathon for me and get my GFA time sub 3:10 and I could sit back and relax, eating doughnuts for the next few weeks....
  • AWC - you [email protected]'s the sort of thing I would do. LOL Any decent marathons will be sold out now. Paris marathon ? 14th April Chichester - goodwood ? 14th April - closer to home. or 16th March coastal marathon in East Dean? Maybe a charity …
  • Spoons, I like running on tarmac, but the views trail running and isolation are great, don't generally get that on tarmac! It was bloody cold early yesterday. 110 miles in a week is nuts Spoons! I managed my highest mileage week for over a year thi…
  • Jools 19min 5k sounds nice to bag a top 10 finish Sub 36min 10k SQ, awesome. Rammers - 18 with 10 at MP is hard. put me to shame. HA, sorry to hear the knee is not good still ITB is nasty! After being accused of slacking with a day off Friday, I…
  • Good to hear its clearing up Westy - shame about pulling out of Manchester, but big guns makes up for it in my opinion! HA I have ITB really bad after my first year of running and it was nasty... did loads of research into it... too much to bang on…
  • The big question really is how the hell do you guys : a) find time to run 400 miles (that's about 3200 minutes of running) b) not get injured ! But its bloody impressive I presume you guys are running doubles in a day
  • Well done on the dreadmill Spoons. Impressive session. My legs in todays run (calves and achillies) were sore bunnies from yesterdays LT run so the effort must have been there! Thanks Jools - lets wait and see, Im not full of confidence yet!
  • Thats some mileage Joe and SQ - 311 and 322. I think I'm about 120 miles... need to up my game! (but a slow start with PF at start of month) Surprised no Ice AWC - quite a bit around Surrey
  • Reg / HA..... Cant believe I'm on the same site as hardened criminals! I bet you are the sort that takes 2 waters at the end of a race as well.. 7 mile GA for me today on the ice
  • Reg - Your 6x1200 sounds like my LT miles just missed the first one off pace then got worse and worse.....
  •  Hmmm just returned from a crappy 11 mile LT run... didn't really come close to hitting my LT times Not a happy bunny.....Hilly and icy didn't help. I actually run one of my warm down miles faster than one of my LT miles!
  • Joe - I missed it......Run hard.....and still enjoy it. (sure you wont be able to stop yourself, its the way you are)
  • Hmm interesting point on the LT Rammers and SQ. I might slack off a bit and try that out today as been struggling a bit with LT sessions currently (does not help they are on an undulating route).
  •  Hydepark runner - I would love to know your receipe to knock 7 mins off your HM PB then marathon at a quicker pace again. Its what I would love to do. Rammers re the LT miles - I didn't know you could split the LT miles, I thought they were suppos…
  • How could you miss that AWC - it has just flashed up on the BBC website "record marathon holder crashes out with predicted 3:30 marathon time...."
  • Blimey EE you are getting the long ones in already. 4 long runs... I've only done a 16 miler and 20, but that was off the back of some good base training end of last year. I kept pretty much to 8 min miles then last 2 miles at MP. Felt ok, so quit…
  • Joe....I hate to protest too much but unless you have piled on 3 stone you are taking the pi##....(or going for another record dressed as a hippo) You could probably run 3:30 without even training. you just did sub 3 a few months ago! In that case…
