Flat footed v Vik W
Foxy- do you think you'll mange to get to go on that camp?
Woke up after a naff nights sleeps and really didn't feel like doing my 19 miles.... luckily I have sunday off so shall do it then....
it was a good job I decided to do my 6 marathon pace run instead becaus ethe legs felt heavy, tired and generally rubbish! I hid the pace on my garmin and tried to run to how I felt
now as it all felt like such hard work I am surprised at those split but it really was awlful- but it's done and dusted so I won't dwell on it!!
what's everyone else been up to......
Looking like it. It looks great. Slight issue is that the cubs are away for most of the week skiing and then coming back and then I'll go away so they won't see much of me this half term.
Have just broken the news about the Mara to Mr FL!! (Having been discussing it here and with others for 3 days now....)
He's taking it as well as can be expected possibly seeing the benefit of only 9 weeks build up instead of 16!
I'm selling a "family weekend" in Brighton. Cub 2 very excited, cub 1 "but you always said you would never run a marathon".....
And, yikes, how do I work out my marathon pace?...
I feel like i've been neglecting you Vik...but work is still silly busy.
Good work on moving your long run , this is often the time when people are getting a bit run-weary...You have been amazing up until now.
Interesting your MP done by feel. I try this every now and again as type of fizz test. I've never had such varied splits though.
The long run then...how about 12 steady and then 7 at MP +15 sound.
This will be a great test of your nutrition and drink stratergy. I your splits are consistnat for the last 7 then we know its bang on, if your suffering though....
FL post some run times and lets see if we can work out your MP.
It's bliddy snowing again....NNNNNNOOOOOOO!!!! i want to get out on my bike.

I've run 156m so far this year, so about 30m/week plus a bit of mild x-t, but nothing longer than 10m. I'll wait to here what FF has to say.
FL - You have a good base and with a controlled race you can easily get under 4.30. What's your longest run to date?
With a proper taper, we have maybe 8 weeks running and we don't want to push to much to get injured.
More than welcome Foxy- hijack away!!
bloody snow my early shift is NOT going to be fun tomorrow..... if I'm not back tomorrow evening you know I've been run over by a suitcase....
It's happens to alot of runners i reckon FL...can you run with anyone even if its part of the way..few years back on my long runs I had friends join me for 6 mile sections and before you know it 18 miles had passed.
I've just entered Beachy Head marathon on October if anyone fancies doing a real marathon...none of this flat road rubbish
Righto...your plan for dropping one run and extending an other sounds good...just don't dive into the big distances..maybe plan for two 18 milers in the time we have left.
What you running on Sunday FL- how long?
I feel a bit bad that some of the others have relocated to the just finish thread as they think I'm too speedy I did put on my pitch for the forum six that I was eventually hoping for 4.30ish
Rest day for me today- off to work for a late late shift tonight then 19 tomorrow!
Oh and sports massage on monday afternoon- that'll be fun

I'm still here and there!!
You go girl, if you can get 4:30 that's blinkin ace I shall be happy with anything that starts with a 4 ....even 4:59:59 .....but of course I have a slightly better time in mind
but nothing like 4:30
oops edited to say I have LSR'd 13 miles in 2:20 which is 5 minutes quicker thatn my first half mara in 08 that I "ran" and today I ran/walked, hw mad is that!!
I wore 3 pairs of gloves and my hands were toasty warm for the first time
I keep popping my head round the door too - but I can't keep up with my blog, FB, and the other threads I post on regularly - oh, and work , hence my sparse attendance in here. A finish with a 5 at the front would do me fine. Finish is the important word for me. 5:01 might annoy the hell out of me though
I know I couldn;t run the paces you're turning out, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be running them. As long as the paces you've been running are not too fast for how you're feeling, then I'm sure you'll be fine and be 4 something with ease.
I'm hoping that tomorrow's race is on, otherwise it's 20 miles to find - and for once I'm excited rather than nervous about a race.
what's the race Helen?
So you're doing 2 x 20 mile races
