Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Yay for March! Bring on the spring.
5 miles easy for me this mornig as a mini-taper for half on Sunday - I put in 2 miles at HM pace, mostly to ward up a bit really!
Rest tomorrow, then an easy few miles on Sat pre race on Sunday. Not sure how hard to run it as it's part of mara training really. Any advice seasoned Spring mara runners?!?
DunkyD - I did exacly the same last week at the GNW HM. I wasn't really sure either but just went for it. Perhaps I may have left a bit in the tank as I wasn't breathing that heavily through mile 12 so maybe subconciously I was just keeping a little back but it was near enough a full tilt afair. My legs have been a tad erm, leggy this week as a result but i've not suffered any injuries or feel like i've set my mara training back as a result.
As always, though, different strokes for different folks.
The recovery continues! 30 minutes mostly grass & trail in Crosby Country Park at 7am. No undue soreness from calf.
Good work Swittle - don't overdo too soon!
SB - sounds like a plan - Think I'll pace it for a PB (which should be quite easy as I'm still getting fitter) and see how I'm going at half way and maybe push a bit harder for the back 6 miles.
Keep it up all and enjoy the slightly warmer weather!
I've started trying to run in the mornings before work now rather than in the evenings. So this morning was a very frosty 7.13 miles consisting mostly of laps of the (very large) park.
6 mile recovery run this evening.
Thur 9.00pm - 6km mixed pace - woodland trail
time constraints dictated that tonight had to be a short sharp workout - 1km warm up / (4 x 500m) with 500m recoveries / 1km warm down
not doing as many miles as normal as I have no races planned for a while but just enjoying ticking over and mixing it up a bit
sounds like some good training going on from the gang
4M Tempo run. Not bad, bit of a blow out .Dry, no wind or fog.
A smidge above freezing, dry and a medium breeze. Decent running conditions, decent run. 7 miles inc 6x100 strides. Always feel a bit of a tool sprinting full on down busy morning roads, knowing motorists are sniggering to each other. But, you know, screw em
Dunky - Good luck, let us know how it goes
loving Dunky D's tactics - head out at PB pace, then step up to beyond PB pace...it's like Spinal Tap, when they turn up the amp to 11 !!
as for me, solo session at Battersea Track this morning. 7x1k at 4.25m/km (target 10k pace)
in a similar way to Dunky, but a distance down, I am training for an HM, but finding myself feeling so strong at 10k pace that I'm thinking of banging out a 10k PB while I'm at it. I fancy Eton Dorney but we'll see...
Nice one Baldy and Dunky. Great running going on here
8.5 miles for me this morning steady. Nice but couldn't fit in more miles due to time and really wanted to do 10-11. Same old story really :-/

Cmon now Nessie that sounds like, whats that technical term people use ...... oh yeah thats right ..... an excuse!
Do you think when Thomas Edison first invented the lightbulb and burnt himself on the first prototype, he went 'ouch that hurt... wont bother continuing with that ...'
Nope he knuckled down and got on with it.
10 miles Nessie, not 9.9 ...... lets see your next post tomorrow say that!
??? seems we've been hijacked by a troll???
I *could* go into a rather boring and lengthy explanation of how, getting my car hemmed in to a car park and stuck for an hour, and needing to do the school run, put the kaibosh on my doing an extra few miles. It's not that I *can't* do it, just that er.. life got in the way.
seemed like a rather unnecessary outburst on what is usually a very nice thread
Epic race strategy, DunkyD! Thanks for your good wishes: another 30 minutes this a.m., similar route but warmer by 5 deg C than y'day. Getting there - and I hope everyone on MLR is too
Sat 9.00am - 8.5km (garmin free) - woodland trail
dappled sunshine through the trees and a thin layer of frost in places - lovely running conditions for a morning yomp - having to run without the hound for a while (damage incurred by another dog last week has meant stitches and recuperation) - missing our runs together
good running weekend everyone
3 miles today. Had to go into work for a few hours so took the chance to have a run home
don't worry about it, Nessie. regular MLR-ers admire the way you fit your running in around Ofsted inspections, kids, romantic anniversary getaways, weightwatchers etc
5 mile recovery run this afternoon.
