That 1:32 was 2 weeks before Rome - there was no way I was going to race an HM that close to my target marathon!
I try to do every run in a given week but almost never manage to do them in the right order, this week I did my 15 miles on Monday, I'll do Tuesday's scheduled run Saturday morning and the others have all been variously shuffled around - I mostly manage to avoid two hard runs back to back but I seem to recall on my last 18/55 there were a couple of weeks where circumstances made it unavoidable (although nothing as serious as AGs plumbing thank god!).
Weather here a bit crazy at moment. Might have to delay my lunchtime run.
Icklemichael, sub3 would have been great, and I was on the pace until mile 23, but I had only set out to get a London GFA, which I thought was 3:10, but turned out to be 3:05, so I'm glad I went balls-out on the day!
More than happy with 3:01, having trained 3:10.
I don't think the order matters, as long as you don't do too many tough sessions back to back and give yourself chance to recover.
I have a 10mi race on sunday...and am supposed to run 10mi today...not sure whether to cut it down to a 6mi recovery. Plus, looks horrible out there.
What's that saying 'there's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing' - having said that I'm not sure what clothing would be appropriate for this - maybe a sail?
Full armour, given some of the things flying about. Scotrail have reported everything from hay bales to trampolines on the lines. Guess flying Christmas ornaments are a major hazzard at this time of year as well!
I woke up to the sound of things crashing around in the wind and lay in bed smugly thinking how pleased I was that it's my rest day.
The issue of rest days causes me some problem! They always seem to be scheduled to fall on days when life has thrown up no complication whatsoever and i have 7 hours spare!
Agree DT ... I will be doing my Saturday recovery sessions on Fridays and then taking Saturdays off.
I am flying back from Belfast today so hoping it is at least a tail wind!
It will be interesting to know where you land. I hope you have your passport with you
I did my 5M recovery at 6am so don't have to worry about the shit weather
I find that what ends up happening is that I change the session when i suddenly have a lot of time ie tonight I have 8m with strides, however I am going to get off work an hour early and there is nothing going on at home so already thinking it would be a waste not to do 11/12 miles!
flippin'ec. The weather started calming down...but now has gone full on mental.
right. feck it. I'm heading out. Been nice knowing you.
it supposed to clear here around 5pm, which is jkust about when i can get out thankfully!
Just got back from my lunch run (10mi GA) There's weelie bins and branches everywhere! The second half was alright with the wind behind me though

I survived! Phew, bet you're all relieved.
Did my 9mi at lunch along the regents canal. a bit blustery in places, but more gusty than windy. Pace was pretty metronomic, average 9:46, and every mile was 9:40-something. So on track with what VDOT and mcmillan calculators call my "easy" pace. Felt relaxed. Calves feel a bit stiff now, but otherwise fine.
