A.W agreed, that seems to be the normal sort of distance that is recommended. Just out of interest.... what do you run in?

Jamie why not really push the boat out and get yourself in for some decent gait analysis while you're shopping for your new pair. Always good to do from time to time.

Wacky - Like I said I'm a bit of a trainer junkie! If you asked my girlfriend she'd say I had a pair for every day of the week!!! I'm not quite that bad though, run in Mizuno Wave Riders mainly, New Balance 890's for speed sessions and race in Saucony Fastwich.

So today's session for me was a set of 8 x 800m reps with 1 minute recoveries. Got through 7 miles in total.

Very happy with the reps, felt hard but controlled and consistently paced. Splits were - 2.55, 2.55, 2.51, 2.49, 2.49, 2.54, 2.51 and 2.55. Felt pretty strong all the way through, so my training seems to be going in the right direction!!

That's why I was asking as a fellow trainer junkie .... and my wife definitely thinks the same about me but given the amount of shoes she has.... I have plenty of bargaining power left!

I used to swear by fastwitch for racing but now I'm loving my kinvara's for both training and racing all in the one shoe, probably the best trainers I've owned.

All this shoe talk and we're missing the most important thing!

What colour are they? I hear red definitely makes you go faster!

With this being the final morning of the vote, I just wanted to come on and thank everyone who has posted their support and voted.

I really appreciate this opportunity and your kind and inspiring words. I truly hope I can make it in to the final 5 and repay you all with a marathon performance worthy of your support.

Its the last hour of the vote!! Nerves are shot, and all we can all do is wait and see now who the lucky 5 are!

Calmed my nerves a little with an easy 5 miles, its a bit fresh out there but a lovely day for running!

Aaah thanks for your comment Alex. It really has been "interesting" in every way with this whole blogging thing. I was wondering if it was actually harder than doing any marathon training!! I still think & know I'm way out if my league on the sub 3 forum but I'll definitely follow it quietly for the advice! All the bestest of luck xox

Thanks AW, I wish you luck too. Whatever we find out tomorrow we all have some great running challenges to look forward to.

Thanks jenf. Indeed, whatever the outcome we all still have our goals, and I have no doubt we will all achieve them!

CaroT - The biggest challenge with the forum is keeping up with the posting!!! Your not out of your league at all on sub3, those guys are way faster than both of us. Their advice and experience is priceless, and has definitely helped me.
