Rest day for me and no swimming had to take Buddy to the vets as he has been sick but is now on the mend some bug or something he had eaten. No Parkrun for him tomorrow as I'm helping out and racing a 10k in the afternoon.
OH glad your dad had a better day today well done on the trails and safe home.
SM6 Nice running over the past two days, like your plan
MG1 nice cross training and good luck with the Ultra might look at one for the end of next year
SC nice running not always easy getting out first thing with work and stuff. The thing with BFT is he pops into the 3 hr thread make a comment and then disappears they just ignore his comments, if running a 3 hr marathon was possible on 30 miles a week the experts and plans would tell you thats what to do......
MG1 Great running and great milage for the year mate, i'm lagging some 400 miles behind you for the year think this will be the lowest for the last 6 years.
SM6 your going well and your milage for the year is also great the marathon after the ultra is doable a few years back I went out for a PB in Barcelona and six weeks later ran a faster time in the Belfast marathon.
MG7 great running and nice pace mate.
OH that sounds like better news, great running in Manchester.
I can see and understand running 17:45 for 5k/Parkrun and also 1:20 for a half marathon on only 20 odd miles a week as I have done both and also am 53 years of age. But I think its not possible to run the marathon in the time of 3:05 on 20 miles a week. You just don't have the endurance to keep the pace going. I ran 2:59 this year and would not of attempted it on only 20 miles a week.
Six miles for me on the trails with Buddy all at avg 7:15 pace
