Hi Mel. Hope you enjoyed the shoping trip in London, I saw photos on RRR thread. Can't wait to see next month RW mag!
So what sort of mileage are they getting you doing? Are you just running 4 times a week?
Hi Mel, lovely seeing you again yesterday - what a fun day!
Look forward to following your thread
Morning Mel, I think I'll mostly be absorbing what you learn to get in as much training in amongst a busy lifestyle - a great challenge for me
Well done with the start!
Good luck Mel, can't wait to see your training plan
Morning Mel! How have the first couple of days been? I've got 6 miles at 9:30 pace today so a nice trot! Maybe on the canal path or through the woods - depending on how brave I feel tonight! What have you got today?
Hi Mel. How's it going? What was/is your speed session today?
I'm just ticking along with my running at the mo. starting my plan 1st week in Jan.
Hi Mel.can you tell us what your training plan is for this week and next..and maybe remind us of what time you are aiming for.........
If not them maybe the mentor can pop in and share some info with us

Plan for this week is :
Monday - 3 mile (10:15 - 11:15 pace)....
Wednesday- I mile (10:15 - 11:15) pace then 3x7 minute fast (7.20 - 8.25 pace) with 90 sec jog. recovery for 1 mile

Total 20 miles this week.
Generally 4 times a week although next week its 5....I will post next weeks plan towards the end of this week....I wonder how many will follow next weeks training plan ??....
sorry Seren - it a 4.30 first marathon..!!....
Hi Mel,Glad you got chosen.
Looking forward to following your training. I am looking for a similar time in Edinburgh in May.I have run the Paris half a couple of times and it is the best city for post race grub.
Best Wishes !
Mel.Really hard to get out there in the dark and wet............made a bit easier as you know you have to report back and explain why you don't do it..............but intervals in thei weather isn't fun.hope it goes well........
Good luck with the sub 4:30.it took me a few attempts to do it but you have the help of some great experts so hopefully it will all go well......
best of luck.I'm trying to sus out which of the 5 is closest to my target
