Hello Scott! I managed a sedate Parkrun today in 26:30 ish. Kind of hard when feeling bionic. Probably not slow enough... Good practice for tomorrow's half when I also mustn't race. Think I'll run 8:30 mm til mile 7 and see how I feel. Definitely won't race the end though I promise...

Ikle - you know it makes sense...

Gentle 14 for me after lunch... must control the urge to go off too quick. Will throw in a couple of miles at the end at HM pace to see how it feels.

Still deliberating over an Autumn Marathon... You doing Chester again Scott?

Do we think a majority pace of 8:30 mm is ok or too quick and might accidentally turn into racing? (For tomorrow's half)

Good luck Scott. You should be on for good sub 1:50 after your time at Chester.

Ikle sounds like a plan, 8:30 gets about 1:52-53? Roughly your 5k pace today.

Enjoy. Dtf are you doing a half soon with the hmp section?

sounds fast to me Ickle but I guess I would say that - joking apart its not exactly NOT racing.... depends what you want... back to original question ... scroll back a page or so...

cant believe how quickly the marathon is creeping up oh well.. will run a bit tomorrow but a CUTBACK WEEK .. someo f you wont know what that is .. its when you do LESS MILES after a longer run.... before building up again the following week... bit worried I have done not enough this week.. oh welll .. will be fine, will be fine, I can do it i, I can do it... there you are - some cross training... DONE!!

Fleet Half on 17th.... slotting in 2 quicker miles at the end of today's otherwise casual 14 miler seemed to make sense but my hands were so cold I didn't really enjoy it...

Ikle - 8:30 sounds bang on to me... you should feel pretty good still at the end too 

Susan, my cutback weeks start next week as I've altered my routine following two 100mile months. Then after Fleet I've a series of 10k to aim at. Never trained for a 10k so hopefully with a bit of discipline I should see some improvement on my 4 year old PB

Dave - If you fancy it think I may do mablethorpe again. Not sure of the date but flat and fast. Some time in October.

Good luck all Sunday May do 10 but see what the morning brings

Did not not repeat that repeat that.

Ikle, the double posts happens sometimes if you press back/ refresh in your browser. Just take it steady tomorrow, no heroics and racing or doing 8 min miles from the start!

Susan, You are not alone. I'm on a cut back week too.

Martin, 10 miles so soon after the ultra? Take it easy.

Thanks FRC. My flooming parkrun today did not exist in the stats. Moop. No beep. Even though I ran Basey's son to a new PB
02/03/2013 at 23:38

Not on your watch? of course you weren't racing so it doesnt matter..

You can manually add the miles to Garmin Connect if thats why you're bothered.

Anyway, Get to sleep!

It is on my watch. Huzzah its today! And i have my flooming girl's thing! FZZGRHHMPH!

Good luck Ickle ... Damn TOTM ... There are benefits to getting older ... Menopause ! Apart from all the crap that brings .. Men don't know how lucky they are.

Run well ... Don't kill yourself, run well too Wabo

Hang on I'm hoping to sneak in a babby first!

here! It's exciting and cold. Don't race, Cathy, don't race!
03/03/2013 at 12:16

Susan... don't worry, I know I'm very lucky to be a man  x

03/03/2013 at 15:26
Hope Ickle had a good run
03/03/2013 at 16:04
