Thanks Sprint - well, I got to HM point at Abo last year in 1.36 so I think that's doable again but 1.35 hmm we'll see...

Legs still feel fresh after Sunday and I've been hammering 7-8 milers every day since. Perhaps hammering is the wrong word... but I certainly haven't been dawdling.

I actually won a pair of new 1st generation Lunaracers on eBay for £26 the other day (I usually pay £70 for these but they're discontinued now) so really happy about that since I think the 1st gen are the best version and feel incredible.

Well done with the proposal btw!

glad to hear the legs are still working well D2D..... out of interest have you given yourself a time limit of following your own training methods.........from your times it doesn't seem that you are making much improvements on your half and marathon times over the last 2 years despite you running a hell of a lot of miles a week and being young and fit........

I know you enjoy running all your training runs at faster than  race pace..............and some training programmes need longer than others to fufill themselves..........but have you given yourself a time limit of 3 or 5 years where if you don't start reaching your potential you might try training in the more traditional style or varied style......

I know you have suffered with injury .but you already know that your method of training carries a higher injury risk than other more varied programme...do you still think that the decent results that reflect your talent might show in the next few years..............

Seren - Depends.

I'm still weighing up what I want to do and ultimately what I want to achieve..... for now, I am just happy not being injured and free to run whatever race/distance I want to take on...

I'm in for Stratford (May) and Abingdon (Oct) and will run a handful of summer races (Otmoor/Addebury 3 Spires/Chiltern Chase/Woodstock 12) too but won't be beating myself up about times if I don't get PBs.

I do think I have potential and I'm aware that I'm not unlocking it at the minute though... it's a catch 22, I run to relieve stress predominantly and because it's part of a routine... I like structure and order in my day and this falls in with it..... I may look at training plans if I start to feel I'm really getting nowhere though i.e. I got PBs across all distances last year. If I don't even get one PB this year, I may switch things up a bit.

OOH. My birthday in 1 hour 53 minutes

Good to see the cyber bullying is still going strong. For a moment there I though sanity and basic human kindness may have appeared.

If you are referring to me RR

.then you will have noted through the last year that I do not bully D2D..........when she asks a serious question I answer seriously and as helpful as I can........when she spouts some nasty and silly remark i disagree with then i say my disagreement..........

 I do the same with others on the forum..........Infact if i am in a clique i have argued more with My "clique friends" on here than D2D............

just because she  says things many things  that i disagree with or finds offensive sometimes doesn't mean that I think she isn't entitled to have a good day on her birthday
