Birch - a great running history. When are you publishing your running memoirs?
GM - Looking forward to your post run post.
KR - Great to read about your maravan. it sounded interesting when it was described on MT, so even better to hear from someone who actually ran it.
Leslie - Doubling up! Nice.
PMJ - Meticulous forward planning for your American marathon.
Melancholy day for me, with the news that Mrs. F's mum died unexpectedly in her sleep this morning. So a sad end to a year which began with my own dad dying; and a middle with my eldest son getting married. Not quite the script for a Richard Curtis blockbuster. 6 easy miles helped me ponder the mysteries and meaning of life.
Speedy - Woolaton Park; at least you 'died your death' in pleasant surroundings.
8 very easy miles this morning at about 8:40s. The furthest I've run since RHM and a total for the week of 22.7 (sorry Leslie, I'll aim for an exact total next week!) over 5 runs. A little achy in the knee, but a good ache, if you know what I mean.
I have a couple of questions that I hope you P&Ders will be able to help me with. At the moment I'm a dedicated follower of Furman, so 3 fast paced runs a week to a max of 35 mpw with 3-4 days of biking. A training response to 2 knee ops a few years ago. Mara PB is 3:05 from this plan. Ive got the P&D book & think I may be able to handle to upto 55 mpw plan. Has anyone followed the upto 55? I don't have a heart rate monitor, can you help me with the correct paces. I have sub 3 in my sights at VLM
