Minniemoo, 2.32 for your first half and just returning from injury is a great time. Your 10mile time is alot better than my recent 10 mile race(it was very hilly).

According to the MacMillan calculator your 1.44 10 mile time means a 2.17 half and a 4.50 marathon time, a good indicator as long as you put in the necessary training and long runs.

I'm going to head to the gym now and keep on training! Thank you. I'm going to keep over this thread for more hints and tips.

Minniemoo - I did my first marathon just after a few months off with ITBS. I did 5.24 and then did another one less than 4 months later and did it in 4.58, so I'm sure you can too!

EP enjoy your runs with your club.

I had the most incredible run last night with my club - the run itself was good fun - doing tempo runs - but what made it special was running under the Northern Lights. It was spectacular!

Hi guys

4 very slow miles in the bank but it is an hours running and 500cals and that's what counts.

BTW it's 22 weeks to FLM. I've mapped out my long runs and I have time to do 2 20 milers with 2 weeks recovery between each.

I WILL do this.

Thats one mile further than me Pixel :-)

EP don't worry about it - you will be amazed at how quickly you can build the distance and speed. You'll soon be doing 7 miles as your short fast runs - not the long ones.

Not doing Reading Pixel as I'm in the Bath Half the week before with Mr J and my Bro's.

Maybe you should stop worring about getting sub 5 and concentrate on doing the distance. On the day I will be running to my HR NOT to a pace. If I get sub 5 great, if not then I will have got through the training and the race in one piece and will be happy with that.

Hi all,

feeling good after a plod round the park. One of those chilly windy days when you start, which then turns out in the sun to be warm.

I'm so slow.

Anyway, my current plan is having just worked out its sooooo long to FLM I'm going to run 3/4 times a week for November before starting to think about any serious time or pacing.

Hopefully this will keep me injury free and keep motivation high - whilst helping me lose a bit of weight.

I WIN :-)

Well done JJ on winning that race :)))

Had a good run last night and another 7 miles this morning. The 7 miles were easy paced and slow, next week will try to do the 7 miles slightly faster. Cold and windy for most of the run but the sun peaked out for about 10 mins so I managed to take my gloves off after that!!!.

I have a 5k (which I think is about 5.5k) x-country race on Saturday so haven't decided how much running to do the rest of the week yet. May try a short faster 3 miler tomorrow and rest or swim on Friday.

If there is not a place for me at FLM which there probably wont be then I think Halstead in May is looking good, Docs tomorrow and then I shall enter.
Managed 4 miles on Tuesday which was good and no niggles... 2 miles today, the only thing I havnt done since the rehab started is 2 consecutive days so will try again tomorrow and see !
Once I am back up to 6 miles again then I think I will join my local club.
10/11/2004 at 22:18
wow that fantastic EP you must be feeling great to have worked so hard.

I would have to work really, really hard to do 62 mins for 6 miles. A rest day tomorrow?
