  • Birch said: Brilliant, Gerard, on a dodgy course - do you have a 100% tarmac course locally ?      Backed up the midweek 15.5 with a couple of 4's on Thu, Fri, then 12 this morning with my friend, and my daughter, who is now relocated back here…

  • @MrSoft - Re swapping weeks/scheduled races in the plan, I would just check the way the week is set out.  A race may be in a slightly lower volume week to allow a mini-taper.  After all, racing is a hard effort for the body.  On the same note, it al…

  • G-Dawg said: MsE, points 1 and 2 are absolutely bang on. I experienced all of that last year when I was stupid enough to do a parkrun at the end if a 15 miler as well as overload on a hill reps session. Was lucky to rescue the campaign. Have wo…

  • Birch said: MsE - thanks; on the flipside, I can (should) learn from your adherence to the "supplementary" stuff, particularly as a VoGit. My legs are often "wooden" and take a while to feel loose (often they never do within a run), so I would …

  • PhilipMJones said: MsE, looking good on the comeback. Do you have plans for this year or is it take it how it goes and see? My feeling is that you'd be best off letting things happen in their own good time up until the summer and if you feel t…

  • It's taken me the week since I last posted to read back!  In my defence, it was my 45th birthday that day and I was having a minor existential crisis.  All better now, sooooo: Birch -I feel so fortunate to have your experience to learn from here.  …

  • MrSoft said: Has anyone got knowledge of how threshold runs work with regards marathon training. I have a lot of these within my training plan and I'm wondering if I need to stick rigidly within the my set training paces to achieve the full ben…

  • Every time I come back after a short break, I can't work out where I last read to because it seems BB has just run a marathon. It's very confusing. Coming back with some easy runs based on time on feet.  Building my base again but putting aside all …

  • G-Dawg said: Rollocking noted, MsE.  It's only 'cause I care, GD  Sorry I missed your bad news, Freemers.  But you are in good company with me and Jools both hopping along too.  See it as a chance to focus on core and upper body…

  • DT19 said: Good work for a  Monday morning Gul. Leslie- Have you done much other training to retain cv fitness in that time? Hope you progress with no further issues. I'm contemplating another slow treadmill later just for 10 minutes again. Y…

  • G-Dawg said: Not sure what's wrong with my legs but yesterday was such a trudge. 15 miles off-road. Similar route to last week but it was more muddy than swampy, tough work but good muddy fun. It's runs like that when I wonder how I ever do 26.…

  • Hi Big G.  Your question made this chap and his blog spring to mind: http://runningonaraisin.blogspot.co.uk. DT19: Take each day at a time before making a decision on tomorrow.  Your body will tell you what it can do and you will be best placed to …

  • You can tell you are injured when you find lots of articles to read on running. I like this one which summarises nicely the key points from both a practical and psychological perspective.  As we all know, the mindset is what can make or break you ov…

  • Welcome Nicko.  Agree with the rest that you seem to have the pace to go sub-3. Sending get well wishes to Jools, DT (sub-3 looks within reach too), Gul.  Running well Gerard but don't overdo things.  Training is comprised of stressing the body + …

  • Jools - I'm sure you are well versed but for the sake of sharing this is an outstanding demonstration of how to effectively rehab that ankle with steps to develop the rehab and then continue when strong again. The slippery surfaces have a lot to ans…

  • Really sorry to hear your injury news, BI. What is the current outlook and treatment protocol you are on?  If there is something I can do, I manage to stay optimistic.  But if there is a dead end, I think I might cry in the corner. I hope it is the …

  • Good luck to those at the start of their 16 week VLM plans.  Fingers crossed I will be with OO and Gerard at Parliament Hill.  If I do make any races it will be more for the experience than to race, but it would be nice to get back out there all the…

  • Awesome effort today, Poacher.  Hope the injury free period continues, Jools.

  • Hope you all had happy Christmases!  Since I have been away, BB has run two (2!!!) marathons. Sub17 has continued to run impressive sub-18 parkruns.  DadAgain has committed to the GC Marathon (one I plan to do in future as I have a friend down there…

  • Gosh, loads of posts to catch up on. Plenty of familiar names around so will try harder to keep up. Cutback week in my HM training gives me around 37-38 this week. Ankle playing ball nicely but I daren't get complacent.  I have a new mentor to get f…

  • Can't keep up!  Argh!  Sorry for being AWOL.  Every time I try drop back in, I look at my watch and realise I have to head off and don't have time to do a roundup.  So forgive me if I don't name check you but I have read back.  I will try to keep up…

  • Hi JessicaMaryRobson.  Your run sounds like the sort of thing I am doing in my role as an England Athletics Mental Health Ambassador at my club. I came to this thread with a background in psychology and interest in how running can help those with me…
  • I keep trying to pop back but life is rather hectic of late.  Just wanted to say sorry to hear about your loss, GD.  Sounds a fine chap who lived a good life.   A quick hello to Sub17 and DadAgain (or have I already done that...?)  You both sound …
