MG1 Great running and great milage for the year mate, i'm lagging some 400 miles behind you for the year think this will be the lowest for the last 6 years.
SM6 your going well and your milage for the year is also great the marathon after the ultra is doable a few years back I went out for a PB in Barcelona and six weeks later ran a faster time in the Belfast marathon.
MG7 great running and nice pace mate.
OH that sounds like better news, great running in Manchester.
I can see and understand running 17:45 for 5k/Parkrun and also 1:20 for a half marathon on only 20 odd miles a week as I have done both and also am 53 years of age. But I think its not possible to run the marathon in the time of 3:05 on 20 miles a week. You just don't have the endurance to keep the pace going. I ran 2:59 this year and would not of attempted it on only 20 miles a week.
Six miles for me on the trails with Buddy all at avg 7:15 pace
