Minni v Dubai Dave
End of November would be good - I usually do the St Neots half which is always in the middle of Nov, so will def be on wind down mode afterwards.
Chick - ouch. But you will choose those mega mileage plans
Chick sounds like a tough weekend, have you had to rearrange sessions? I'm now wary of cramming mileage into weekends as I think that's what did for me last year, but as long as you're sensible and balance it out generally.
Ouch Carrot, sounds painful. Second what everyone else says about not rushing back, two days doesn't sound like much rest for a tear.
I like the idea of a marked trail in Shaggy's honour. A bench doesn't really seem appropriate, unless being used as balance for some energetic stretches.
First Febulous run done, on the tready. Gyms are bloody boring, but I'm quite likely the novelty of feeling like I've had a good cardio workout without incurring the dreaded niggles.
Shildon, think it is do-able 2 marathons back to back.Friend (who Minni knows) did 3 marathons in 5 weeks Nov-Dec, and PB-ed on the last one, sub 3:30. One was an ultra, the other 3:40. Depends on your endurance base though I think.
Same as O4S suggested, trail events, LDWA are much more fun than road ones. Road stuff really impacts the legs. Trail you're back running quickly, £7-9 for breakfast, 4-5 checkpoints and a full meal at the end - with dessert even. Amazing value.
Carrot - take it easy. 4-7 days rest?
2old - great LSR @ 7.45. Don't burn all the speed before Sunday!
For some reason I thought GFA for London was 3:10 for me still, but its 3:15. I thought this had changed? Cheered me up anyway.
Legs not fully recovered after the ultra, but after shuffling around 4 miles slow on Tuesday, was able to do 5 miles in 40 minutes last night. Another few days and I should be back to normal. this weekend was always rest.
Oh, 2old did you see Liverpool marathon has been cancelled? they can't get agreement with the council now for road closures. Really sad with the first two years doing so well.
Doesn't bode well for future road races near shops & parking.
Good luck for the XC tomorrow Minni, our club have a big group going over there... pleased I didn't get round to entering now with my uncooperative quad! Is it not worth doing a shorter run on Sunday? You've already got so many 20s in already, it surely won't be too much harm to drop to 12/13 long run miles for one week, it would save you an hour. Could even be done at your favourite start time of 4:30am. All up to Moz I guess.
I love Freemers suggestion for the get together!
Bro - is Royal Park like trying to get into GNR through the ballot?
Shildon I'm a Bishop girl Where's your parkrun debut going to be? We have some good ones around here, I've done Durham, Sedgefield and Albert Park. Do you know about Hackworth parkrun starting in a month?
Good session Ant and great news that your injuries have cleared up.
Simon you must be getting sick of your heel troubles now
I have lunged my way through the workday today, disappearing every hour on the hour to do them in the toilets or kitchen. I don't know why I bothered doing them in private, everyone already thinks I'm a bit bonkers! Followed by stretches and icing. And a bit of foam roller action when I got home. Followed by wine.
Sedgefield is a good course, two laps of Hardwick Park with a short climb towards the end of each lap.
Hackworth is indeed going to be 3 laps, including an out and back bit along the long flat stretch. It will be a bit up and down but it has to have a few climbs being in Shildon! I joined Crook a few months ago, should have joined years ago.

Lol Brolish, can't see meditation being included in our Frankenmoz schedule!
I was going to ask Frankenmoz to be my yoga coach....
I'm getting ripped
Shildon - I was at Blackpool last year too, although I think Patrick will have been in the pub by the time I finished!
Those gym sessions are paying off Spoons!
Link doesn't work Simon...
DD - not surprised you were tired! Well done.
i'm marshalling at park run this morning. Hope it's not snowing like yesterday morning....
