I did 20 miles Monday followed by 20 miles Tuesday

Then 15.5 miles Thursday and 17.5 miles Friday

None of it quick, (all at 6.0 - 6.2 mph) but felt like I could have kept going really easily

Grief guys, my mileage chart is not looking quite as healthy as yours! I'm not aiming to be peaking too early though... I've got 15 planned for tonight and then 7 in the morning. At the min I'm aiming for approx 100-120m per month
17/07/2011 at 12:09
I've walked 10 this morning (ankle swelled up last night), and will be walking to and from work later unless the weather is better for ducks than humans.....

Everyone seems to be doing really well so far. Have a good day everyone.

Chuffed

AJH, that's fantastic. Well done. You are rightly chuffed! I rake it that was a race as opposed to a training run?

Top running there AJH

Bizzarely, I had lunch with my family at the Gate Inn, Marshside only 2 weeks ago

 Seems like I got my timing all wrong as I could have wangled a nice little run whilst the family went to the pub

I think I will have to put that one on the calendar for the next couple of years

Knee sore this morning, very frustrating. think its probably just knackered, too many miles catching up with me I think. Bit of rest and some ice, but dull pain right at the bottom of knee cap. Grrr!!

Hi all,

Lots of great running over the weekend.  Well done on the 52.4 AJH - how was your toe?  Great running Veggieboy - how long did it take you to build up to that length of back to backs?  Glad your ankle is holding up Vixx, great news.

I did the Grantham 2 day ultra in March so did some 18/20 back to backs at the start of the year, but haven't really done many since.  I think I'm going to have to split my daily mileage to fit in with commuting when I start to build it up for this, otherwise I won't fit it all in.  My thigh continued to niggle all weekend so I went to the physio today.  Looks like it's to do with tightness in my back and that's putting pressure on the nerve, nothing to serious, just irritating.  Going to take it extra easy this week and hopefully I'll have no problems on Sunday.

Sorry to hear about your knee Mr F, hope it heals quickly.

Have a good week all.

A new pair of shoes tomorrow with gait analysis should help things. Currently alternating between 3 pairs of shoes, two of them bald as a coot! Going to opt for new Kayano 17s having been in two pairs of kinsei for sometime now

Hello all, and great running. Really considering this as a first ultra (if I can persuade my better half that I'll be ok) I would be running it for a great charity who are helping a close friend and it would be my 30th birthday on the 3rd of march. Like the idea that you don't require any map reading skills and that is relatively flat. I've found a training plan and I'm looking for any advice, is it any good? Or can anyone recommend some alternatives

Any tips and help are most welcome.
