Perversely Adrian I'm quite looking forward to mine, 20 miles for me tomorrow.  I find the LT runs I am doing at the moment tough and the long ones seem fine in comparison. I've also found a few new routes I haven't even driven let alone run so the anticipation of the run through new countryside is halping me to endure the long time out on the roads

08/02/2013 at 11:03

I'm with you, normally. I'm just not feeling tomorrows run....yet. Here's hoping that changes....

JF50 - When is your marathon?  Am a bit worried I'm behind if you're already at 20miles!!

Rest day today, 1st ever park run tomorrow

Adrian - have you tried listening to audio books?  Not everyone's cuppa but I find if I'm at a good bit in the book I'm gagging to get out to run so I cna see what happens next!

Happy Friday peeps!

Dobster I am running London, Apr 21, and you?  I'm on the P & D programme which is quite mileage heavy although I am on the low version, upto 55 miles per week

All good - had two aberdeen angus burgers for dinner whilst watching 'spirit of the marathon' on youtube. Buzzing now and can't wait until tomorrow.

Bring it.

morning all

off to trial for a swimming club masters section - don't know if it means that I have to be a certain standard  but if I can't run then having a few structured swimming sessions a week will be good.

Dobster - P&D is Pfizinger and Douglas - they wrote a book called Advanced Marathoning

09/02/2013 at 07:58

tommy - hope your wife is doing ok. 

welcome Adrian

Maths, the trial should be to assess your coaching needs and fit you in with the correct lane based on pace and ability.  Its not a pass/fail test.

Morning team.. resting today as Punchbowl 30 tomorrow.  I need my niggle to settle down otherwise it's going to be a long day - and it's going to be raining all day!  P&D also sometimes refered to on here as "Pfiz", just to confuse us all I am sure!

09/02/2013 at 08:21

PSC - good luck for tomorrow, it is forecast snow here all day tomorrow - sick of the stuff, even the kids are bored with it now

I would rather snow than rain... and in the Witley area we seem to have rain predicted from 9am - 2pm... which, oddly enough, is when I will be run/walking.  Oh well, at least the drive home will be pleasant!
