Thanks Steve, got a half marathon next weekend so hope to give that a good go. Tomorrow's long run is a bit of a toss up of either a time on feet steady 22 miler or an 18 miler with 2 chunks of 4 miles @ MP (6 steady, 4 MP, 2 steady, 4 MP, 2 steady).
Good news you can keep running Speedy, did he recommend for you to be running more on softer ground like trails/towpaths etc?
Good session Malcs with the MP miles. MP can feel tough sometimes in training, but then when you race on the day you'll have 3 weeks of taper and carbo loading & gels to help you on the way, plus the mental race head attached too!
Belated well done Steve on your half marathon time of 1.22. must say you have got some brilliant times under your belt if that was your 101st best time. But great that it's your best for 5 years. I think that proves that even though as you get older you can still at least achieve good times.
Had a great 10 mile progressive run last night, although turned out not to be totally progressive as I was supposed to hit MP by mile 7. Splits came out at 7.49, 7.40, 7.39, 7.10, 6.33, 6.41, 6.36, 6.33, 6.26, 6.20. Managed to dip under 70 minutes which was good (although not intentional)
Good luck with the Training camp this weekend Tom - Enjoy
G-Dawg great time there considering you were solo too!
You can't beat a bit of quality RFJ.

Speedy reps the other day from you Tom so soon after your half. I like doing new routes too as I think it breaks up the monotony. I did a 14 miler (av 7.56 pace) last night taking in a new route through a different part of the city I don't normally go down. It helped the run pass a bit more.
