For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
Ok, let's all join this thread then shall we?
It seems that the "sub 3h15 - 2009" thread is now out-dated so why don't we all de-camp over to this one? The 16 week programmes for VLM 2011 start in a couple of weeks so let's see if we can get this thread to be the "official" sub 3h15 thread
Ooh, it's not furnished very nicely is it? I'm going back to the other one
I'm sure we can give this place the "lived in" look easily and quickly enough.
Any lurkers from the old thread, please feel free to say hi on this one. We're a (fairly) friendly lot on here

And quality prose only please
Anyway, I'd love to stay and help hang the curtains but I've got a date with a very cold 10 miles home from work. See ya!
I'm here - love what you've done with the place.
How appropriate that my 16 week 70mpw P&D for Brighton starts today as well.
8miles with 10x100 strides coming up in the cold and fog across London.
Winter training. Love it.
I've made the jump. Who's responsible for checking everyones made it? Excellent and extensive info MM as always. No pressure Steve just remember the slow runs slow etc.
Managed to get out for 4 miles slow last night but too dodgy on the roads down here today again so back on to my new friend the treadie. 10 miles at 6:54 avg.
Just pitching up after being offline for a couple of days to find tumbleweed blowing across the other thread, don't worry I collected RJ's copy of Razzle, a rare limited edition of the Chuckle Brother's greatest moments and a whippet and flat cap abandoned by the northern department......
Some good LSR's and dreadmill efforts to note, although not much to report here, apart from some chugging.
Did get out for a 6m 'reverse fartlek' today, slow running interspersed with slower shuffles over the compacted ice.
Anybody remember the kettle?
Ahhh - here you all are. My journey in my time travelling transporter podule was successful afterall. Is it safe to remove my space suit and breathing apparatus yet ?
MsE- I know some orthotists suggest just wearing them in running shoes. I think my feet were so unstable and wobbly I needed to go for a total switch over. I suspect the look wouldn't be great in six inch stilettos though....
Ho hum. Just done another tedious 2 hours on the treadmill. My tour of the leisure centres of Lothian continues. Five and a half hours on the darned things over the last 3 days - yawn. Mind you I did get to watch some quality day time telly
Should we put some sort of official "we've moved - back in 6 months" type announcement on the old thread....MM can do it as unoffical thread captain
That's dedication to the treadmill Fraser.
Fingers - presumbly you mean 17-week schedule and what happened to week 18? Hope you enjoyed the strides
Treadmill tempo for me. 4K w/u, 5K @ 4:10 m/km, 4K w/d. Didn't feel too bad and at least the pace stayed constant during the tempo bit Not as much HR drift as I'd expected either, starting at 173 and rising to 181. Any views on how your HR would compare with running the same session outside?
Sorry I'm a little late in getting over. Spent ages with the removal men getting this relocated:

Feel free to add your A goal targets KK and anyone else!
A brief treadmill run confirmed that my arthritic knee is still completely knackered, and so I had to stop just shy of two and a half miles (and even that included walking breaks every few minutes).
Then I returned home to find my outer porch door had frozen solid and the handle wouldn't budge, leaving me locked out. What I needed was a jug of hot water to pour over it. Sadly, I didn't happen to have any hot water with me. But I did have a full bladder.
I'm not sure which was more degrading. Failing to complete a two and a half mile run, or standing outside my house, pissing up my own front door.
