out of interest anyone ever gone to the Marathon Medical Conferences before. I've had an invite and interesting topics (biomechanics/nutrition/doping/affects on cerebrovasc system all from top names) you get invited for free if you state on the VLM application you're in healthcare but its the day before the marathon and lasts 4 hours so not sure its entirely practical; sounds rights up your street though CW
some more good news from the bench as the Lazarus' take flight
after positive spin last Tuesday and 6 non-running days. I thought the time was right to test....so staying no further than 1k from my house I embarked on a sensibly paced run....a sensible 15 miles (6.38mm) later (!) and although feeling strain it got no worse and completed with no harm no foul. 6m (7.04mm) thurs, 13 miles Friday (6.15mm) and 7 miles sat (7.29mm) felt all good.
So Sunday came, only 2 long runs in 7 weeks and nil over 21 miles this time (I've never done a training run more than 22 miles and only done that twice) so thought I'd go long. Did 2.2 miles early am with daughter in buggy (7.29mm) then pm....24.1 miles dead on 2.32 (6.18mm). Marathon for the day including slow buggy run 2.48
5m (7.07mm) + 6m (6.54mm) recovery double yesterday and 10m (6.44mm) today. 88 miles in the last 7 days since injury...a record by 10 miles (sensible). Not got close to marathon pace so be good to get some speed back involved but obviously pretty happy. Such a stop start campaign with lack of LRs and multiple low milege weeks with birth etc but if last 5 weeks go ok it could be fun....goodl luck bencheeeeeese
Evening all, some monster races and performances at the weekend will try to mention most apologies from misseeeee's
TR monster training, very impressed with the slow steady and sensible build up from last year
cw very nice LONG run there, nice too be thinking of cotton wool time 5 weeks out!

jools top HM time glad you have the mojo working again

PP fantastic stuff, performance of the weekend. shame couldn't have you drag me round. glad you got the deserved pb
ES 18 with 14 is a tough one, great stuff, seems realistic aim
TJB great stuff and good to see you happy. Fingers crossed for Boston now but gotta be well set

TT buggerations. sorry to hear the rotten news, hope the disc sorts itself soon. really feel for you
Lev I think you are more insane than cw how you have the patience with cross training like that is incredible. I know its a frustrating time but when you get out there and run you absolutely fly. you're fitness is obviously there so have confidence in it but just take it easy once in a while
