Hi Kathy, what they mean by "less is more" is that if you train too much or too hard then there is chance of injury and you will just be too tired come race day. Sometimes due to injury or commitments you can't fit the runs in. I remember a few years back I lost 19 days in March whilst marathon training due to really bad cough. I was worried too but I rested properly and took it easy when I returned. I still had a good race. Don't leave everything on the "training runs" save it for the day.
Yes afternoon all. Last night wasn't as cold as I feared and I felt good too. Like i said before, it feels so much easier when then distance is only half that of your most recent long run. 6M brining me up to 80.03.
