Plans should be taken with a good dose of common sense  If you're struggling Heather, take a couple of easy days or drop a recover run or two.  It is better to feel good for your quality sessions and long runs than wear yourself out on lots of little runs that just dishearten you.

Hey, my husband and I entered Chester but now can't make it so if anyone is looking for two places on a BOGOF (buy one get one free) basis let me know. You can transfer places http://www.activeleisureevents.co.uk/full-marathon/faq.aspx#refundpolicyCM2012

Hi folks, I hope that you all had a good week end! Any big miles hit??

I went down to Bournemouth to see the GF, we did 10 miles, with quite a few hill sprints thrown into the mix!!!! very hot and hard going, but loved it!!

Undulating and blinking hot half marathon. 5'43" PB and will go faster in 5weeks when I race my Chester predictor.  Had to stop to rejig my shoe as was getting a blister which later turned out to be the biggest I have ever seen. Shoes are nicely worn in and have taken me round a full marathon before with no issues so heat? Sweat? I dunno. 

Few days rest while my feet recover then back into it. Anyone else got a predictor race planned?

Yesterday I did my first long run since my knee injury. Managed an easy paced 16 miles in 2 hours 22 mins. I don't seem to have suffered any ill effects (touch wood), which is promising - well not apart from aching all over!!!

Weather wasn't an issue for me yesterday, although on Friday evening the heat was ridiculous and I barely managed 5 miles.

Shorter run for me yesterday after full on week , recovery week now then heavier mileage kicks in . Sounds like all going well for everyone .... Hope those blisters heal soon Natty.

Yesterday at 21:05

I did a 10 mile easy-paced run in the searing heat tonight, which took 90 minutes. I'm just trying to get some good mileage in my legs before increasing the pace and focusing on speed work.


Anyone else braved the temperatures for a midweek run?

Yesterday at 22:22

Hi Hilly, good going and in that heat , that would be my steady run time ! Short run for me today and fortunately was cooler as like to run early morn .
