Evening

LMH and RW recovering and tapering are the hardest part of a marathon arent they ? but there is a reason for it.

LMH my schedule does a kind of reverse taper as the recovery period over 5 weeks (seems ages )

Hope the hammys hold up Dustina and Chick

Alehouse take care and all the best for tomorrow

Wabo well done on the weight loss I am hoing to shift a few lbs between now and VLM just to help with my time I am well within normal BMI 22 but feel 5-7 lbs will make all the difference how much have you lost so far ?

Talking of treadmill running (EwanG 87) has anyone used a treadmill for quality sessions and had success ? I was thinking of doing my tempo runs and marathon paced sections of my long runs on a treadmill just to make sure I keep the right pace,I did read that if you set it on a 1-2% incline it gives a more realistic pace making up for lack of wind resistance

 

What :11.2 miles in 1 hours 45  all easy sub 70% HR

Why : back to basics for a few weeks and I love that kind of running

Last Hard : 21/10/12

Last rest :  20/10/12
