Just one thing, don't increase mileage too quickly, or you will pay for it at some stage. Part of the benefit is getting the consistency of training, so you don't want to risk that by overdoing the upward curve.
Just an anecdote, but I know someone who is an FLM ever-present, did them all up to this year sub-3 hrs, runs 100km (internationally, for a period) and 24-hour races (roughly 147 miles in 24 hours, in his fifties), ran across the US coast to coast. He never trains more than 30/40 miles a week, and never does intervals/speed. He has almost never been injured in more than 3 decades of running. It is the cumulative effect of all those years of uninterrupted training that has allowed him to do that. That and the fact that he doesn't seem to know the meaning of 'pain'.
As regards Scotland having control over its joining the EU, a problem it will face is that countries with separatist movements (such as Spain) will be keen to demonstrate that a newly separated micro-state cannot assume it will simply be able to join the EU. It is not just scaremongering about something that in reality would be just a formality. Of course, that's only of significance if you want to be a member of the EU, I don't know how the balance of opinion lies in Scotland on that.
"I don't really care whether they stay or go to be honest - apart from the national debt. If they go, they must take their fair share. I also think they should not be allowed to still use the 'Great British Pound' - if they choose to leave then they are no longer part of Great Britain and their own currency should reflect this."
"That's a bit like saying "We're getting a divorce. You can pay the mortgage, but I'm keeping the house"."
I can't see why that criticism is fair.
The national debt is the consequence of expenditure that has been incurred over many years, to the benefit of Scotland as well as other parts of the UK (you can argue about whether it has done better or worse than it should have done out of that). Paying a share of the national debt is just paying the price for what you have already enjoyed.
On the other hand, whether Scotland should be permitted to use the pound as part of a currency union is at least in part about whether (or in what circumstances) English and Welsh and Northern Irish taxpayers should continue to have liability to bail out an independent Scotland.
If an independent Scotland were to walk away from its fair share of the national debt, that would be taking the plums and leaving the duff - nice if you can do it, but not exactly fair in the circumstances.
I am not opposed to independence for Scotland, though, if a majority of the people want it then they should have it and good luck to them. I can understand why they might, the Westminster government seems pretty remote from how the Scottish people would choose to be governed, after all.
Proper independence would be preferable from the point of view of the remainder of the UK to Scotland having what may be an unduly favoured position within the UK, as seems to be mooted in the event of a 'No' vote.
"There was nothing at all wrong in what he said - unless it's racist to mention monkeys in front of black people under any circumstances"
What this fails to take into account is the long history of black football players being subjected to monkey chants at games (not so much in this country nowadays, but still abroad). That's why it was a bit of a daft comment for RH to have made in the circumstances. I don't suppose he meant to be derogatory, but it was a bit unfortunate.
