  • All the very best to everyone running today. 9st6

  • Yasunaga, "rising to 171 over the last 4 miles" would be ideal, it all depends on my hammies allowing the final push. My heart rate max is 191 and resting is somewhere in the 40s. 160bpm average is the best I have done for a well executed marathon.

  • I'm running to heart rate. Run first 2 miles less than 156, plus the "bonus" downhill third mile. Concentrate on keeping below 160bpm to 20 miles. Then, run as first as I can with out cramping up.

  • TR, I think you should consider switching back to the shoes you know have been ok. I've made a late switch back to a pair of 500+ miles Omni. A newer pair of Hurricanes is giving my Mortens jip.

  • Fantastic result in the half HR. At least there is one high performing V50 on this thread.

  • Spring term is always extremely stressful. I find running keeps teaching/working in a school in perspective. All the best HR ... make the most of the half term holiday!

  • Many happy returns HR, it's down hill all the way from now on

  • 9st8 ,,, nearly got blown over today!, 21 bagged. Seem to be stuck in and around 60 mpw (for the last 15 weeks). Some great training going on. Nice marathon CW, nearly good for age if you were over 50.

  • Crikey Padams, I was in danger of being lapped by you at the Fred Hughes 10! An excellent event, and perfect weather conditions. 2 matches burnt.

  • HR, I rented a flat just off Wandsworth Common (in Morella Road) during teaching practice in 1983 ... it had an outside toilet with rats; the good old days. Good to see some excellent training being posted. Lukestar's 22 is a reminder to get the f…

  • Wardi, nice session. 9 with 4 quicker ones for me yesterday; saw 6:xx for the first time in a while ... mustn't start getting too excited.
    in Sub 3 Comment by nichs2 December 2013
  • I did an 81 minute and an 82 minute half marathon either side of a 3h17 marathon in 2007, but it was the hottest day in history.

  • Easy miles ... Reading the Maffetone book at the moment. He recommends 128 bpm !? My max heart rate = 191, marathon effort averages at 160bpm. Aerobic is from 135 to 150 and hopefully into the 150s after some good base work. Easy for me is at 124 …

  • Jimbob, I've just done 4 weeks of hills (3 "training sessions" per week) in and around Hampstead, but will drop down to the flat Regents Park and Hyde Park etc during some non match burning base building in December. Regents Park is excellent for ti…

  • Enjoy the "feeling fit" feeling HR! Impressive 20 after yesterday's effort. A nice slow 18 bagged for me.
    in Sub 3 Comment by nichs2 December 2013
  • Nice one on the pb, HR. And a sub 40 is a good workout Jools.  All the best to those too close to the bench. 227 miles for November, ticking over nicely.

  • Nice to see Gobi popping; Merry Xmas indeed! More good work over the weekend and good recoveries from the marathoners. First mini block of 4 x 50+ weeks done and ticked off, including 4 x 17 milers, 8 x 10 (hilly) milers and recovery runs. 5,10,5,10…

  • Nice report Jimbob. Very sensible pacing; would a slight positive split bring you closer to sub 3? Have you got heart rate data?
    in Sub 3 Comment by nichs2 November 2013
  • Excellent news Jimbob, well done. and to Dids, respect on the digging in mentality and for the report! More pbs over the weekend as well. congratulations!
