  • My 18 weeker starts 10th December, which is far sooner than I realised! Like you I've been struggling with a few niggles and having a few weeks off post autum marathon season but it seems to be having the opposite of the desired effect, plus not tra…

  • Not sure if this is the place so apologies if it's not but am after advice on breaking or at least getting near three. I've got a half PB of 1 hour 21 and 37 minutes for 10k but in my four marathons to date I've consistently come home between 03:08 …

  • Thanks will give it a read.
  • Hi guys, think i've done something similar 3 weeks out from running the stockholm marathon. Can i please ask what tape you guys would recommend? i've never used it before? Thanks
  • I thought I was making sound progress towards my 3 hours 5 minute, having reached 30k in 2 hours 13 and seemingly feeling in decent shape for a push through the final slog. The wind though put paid to that, I pushed and continued to feel relatively …
