Minni v Dubai Dave
Shildon runner - I've done a few back to back marathons with varying results, each time though it's taken me too long to recover after the second. I actually dropped out of the Town Moor marathon last year as it was 4 weeks after Berlin and I could feel that familiar goosed feeling in my legs and didn't want to have 3-4 months of mediocre training and racing. My best double was 3:29 / 3:33 but that was with 6 weeks in between. There's only a week between London and Sunderland, do you really need to do it? There's always the half or the 10K?
Minni - I usually enjoy intervals too
Hi Shildon - I also dropped out of North Norfolk marathon last year, a few weeks after London for the same reasons as Carrot. I've done plenty of back to back slow marathons and they are fine.
tonight was the same as last night: 30 mins elyptical + 30 mins rower + 30 mins weights / core
Simon - you use the rower a lot don't you? Do you wear gloves? I am developing blisters on my fingers
AA - Probably just 5 miles slow tomorrow and that will be it until Sunday, been getting a bit ahead of plan.

Ha ha, 2old, love it!!! What are the FGFA times for men and women?
Kiwi and Spoons, great work in the gym. I know exactly how dull and boring it is so well done for getting through it. I can thoroughly recommend the virtues of spin. And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, along came a very fit new instructor yesterday - hello (good job OH not on this thread )
Simon, 2old, speedo sessions? Commando sessions??? Made me laugh this morning so thanks for that!
Becs, so sorry to hear you're in the hurt locker I had real mental battles with running towards the end of last year/beginning of this year. It was magnified by an exceptionally stressful 2012. To save my sanity, I decided to walk away for a bit and start again only when I was able, hence my silence for a while I hope you are doing OK.
DD, gardening leave sounds great! I will PM you re your club. Boston 2014? Nice
Brolish, I was short on time so I did my session on TM. Not as good, but I did have 1% incline and just completing it gave me a massive boost!! I hope your recovery is now complete. XC in Denbies sounds awesome, if only for the post-run vino, it being in a vineyard and all
Shildon, hi there and good luck with back-to-back efforts!!
Loving the early runs from people today. I hope they went well.
AA - yes I'm a bit of a girl
Simon - thanks - I'll try the thumb above the handle. Not sure about the jaws and teeth though. They don't get blisters.....
Minni - 4:55 WTF? Don't you get tired girl?
I've lost 2 pounds this week and my moob muscles hurt from all this pumping iron
