Minni v Dubai Dave
Mr Z-I will be back home from Manchester to do mine. Looks like very similar schedules-mine's a variation of P&D 18week up to 70 miles pw (with recovery weeks-skiing)though I doubt I will get to 70 often--I'll leave that to Bro. That way of commuting will save a lot on fuel.Im about the same distance from my office but need access to my car during the day.
MrZ-it will be interesting to compare progress. You need a holiday!
AA - day 9 on the wagon? Is this the longest since you were at school? I'm on day 4....
Minni: ouch! Sometimes jumping into bushes is the only way sometimes there aren't any and disaster will strike .But that's no excuse to mess up somebody else's doorstep (poor Becs) 2old & Mr Z: P&D 70 for me as well, although I prefer the 12 week schedule. Which means I still have a bit more time for base training .AA: 9 days on the wagon, very impressive! I'm on day 2 again
12 miles at 4:45AM!!! Jesus, I just don't know how you guys do it.
I did 5 miles at lunchtime in the sunshine. Marvellous
nice one, Min! I had a lie in . Didn't hear the alarm and slept for 9 hours . Obviously needed it ... will brave the rain tonight though. It seems like a quiet day and I hope to leave in an hour or so. The joys of flexitime Everyone in the office is ill . Have stocked up on Echinacea, Vit. C, First Defence and hand sanitiser. Totally paranoid coz the thing that's making the rounds is bronchial. If I catch it, I can kiss my spring mara goodbye.

Ant - Are you doing P & D up to 55 mpw as i've got 5 to do today? My fragile fitness levels cannot cope with anything much over this mileage!
2old - I'm thinking of having 3 bowls of porridge pre-VLM this year.
Minni- 4.45? Crazy lady!!!!
Oompa-In that case I wont be running VLM behind you!
So many P&D people here , maybe theyll sponsor us?
I'm not very good at early mornings....
Running at night is kinda fun though
Oompa - no P&D for me, I have devised my own Frankenplan. However at the moment I am base building after a achilles/ankle injury before Xmas. Things looking ok though
Weeble/2old- I think Abingdon opens in the first week of February, its still my number one choice unless I can get talked into doing one further afield. The two new marathons in York and Northumberland look good also, oh decisions, decisions.
Zuvai- Good run yesterday for you, very nice pace.
Becs- yuk ref your door step!
AA- Its funny how one day your body doesn't let you do the run prescribed and then the next day its better.(more to follow on this in a mo)
Minni- I hope your enjoying your night off or are you already in bed? Total respect to you for getting out for a run at 4:45am.
Ant- what does your Frankenplan look like?
20ld- A nice MLR there.
I decided not to join the speed session with my club mates tonight as last week I couldn't control my pace and did my fastest pace to date. So I set off to do 6x 1mile @10k pace at lunch time, I had to talk myself into getting out there as the CNBA fairy arrived. The 3mile warm up was fine, then my legs went on strike! I just couldn't get them going, I'm putting it down to "one of those days" My mileage has been quite low for the last month and the last speed session was last Wednesday so not sure what happened. I ended up only doing 4x1mile reps at just under MP. Total miles with wu and cd were 8:83miles so I wont grumble too much. Pace on 1 mile reps were: 7:18, 7:24, 7:16, 7:22 with 3 min recovery in between. 3rd run for Jantastic with a double recovery run planned tomorrow!
.....he's on the case!
