Mr Tarts, good luck with Brighton it's a good course & atmosphere. Weekly mileage varies on here a lot, but I think the main mantra is to get consistent week in week out training. Then there's the 5 x 20 milers in a campaign... Just had a raspberry Bakewell, which was nice!
Fingers crossed your calf strain isn't too bad TR.
Blisters, sounds like a busy day in the kitchen - like the cake decoration.
Chest infection gone and back to normal this week. Nice 5 x 1 mile reps down the park last night
I think you are a machine Roger! That was a tough 400m session with those short recoveries and so soon after your half on Sunday.
I did a good session down the local park last night of 5 x 1mile reps (6.10, 6.02, 5.58, 6.02, 6.01). Had some help with a Club mate (with a 2.42 mara PB) who was also doing mile reps although a slightly different route round the park. By the time I'd finished and had about 90 seconds recovery, he had got back to my start point again. Good to run with a faster runner too.
Good luck with the come back Ant and hope the healing vibes work BI.
TR - I think you have got so much experience under your belt the next 6 weeks training should sort you out. Good luck with your target.
Had a carp week last week with 3 days off from running due to chest infection, which meant me using a joker in jantastic. Only managed 4 runs (and 49 miles) for the week. But a couple of good sessions nonetheless ending with a 2.27.33, 20 miler on Sunday. Did first 10 steady in 1.19 then upped the pace for miles 11 & 12 to low 7's. Ended up with some good 6.45 paced miles and the last 3 in 6.36 pace.
