Welcome, enjoy and congratulations!
I think we have two of these threads for Kier...
Look forward to reading this thread!

Well done Kier, it will be interesting to see how this one plays out! One small criticism of the thread though, parkrun always starts with a lower case p, as does parkrunfan
I supersized for just 50p
Glad someone noticed the capital P before Mr Sinton-Hewitt noticed
And the first job of a mentor is to inspire awe through his own marathon training efforts, starting at around 7.45am tomorrow...
So, this should be interesting.
I was expecting a sub 3 aspirant but it looks like the screw has been turned and we have an ambitious sub 2:50 to go for.
I note from your pitch, Keir, that you clocked a 2:54 at Abingdon in 2010 so, first things first, it would be probably make interesting reading to see what your 20 weeks pre-Abo looked like and what your initial thoughts are on the next 20 weeks up to VLM. (Btw I dont know if it actually is 20 weeks, that was just a stab in the dark).
I note there are already several sub 3 apirants already following the thread so it could well involve some lively discussions
I always look on these threads with a touch of bewilderment ... for a mere plodder like myself this is a fascinating side to running
Well done Kier
My goal for London next year is 3:10, so I'm a bit behind you boys but I'm competitive so let's see what magic we can make.
love4 to watch how the fast boys train
I note that Keir ran 16:06 for 5000m back in 2000, so clearly has the potential to extrapolate that to a sub 2:50 marathon, all other factors dependent.
seren nos yn canu - don't think they train any differently just faster paces
they tend to do a lot more mileage I believe Hilly.........
Well done Kier!
Does this mean the P&D approach will be abandoned, adapted or used with tweaks?
(That's a question for the mentor, I guess?)
Indeed... The group I train with who are all between 2.35-3.15 run similar mileage. Although saying that the fastest in the group does the least miles, but obviously has more talent
