Col - 12 at MP is a solid run, which HM are you doing?
Carrot - Calf is OK, I am going to try 8 miles this afternoon, and that will be me done until Sunday, apart from a short/slow run Saturday morning. Do you know if the expo is the same location as the start/finish?
FRC - Good effort on a tough course for the first one, your training is going to the next level.
AA - Nice quick repeats, 49 miles is enough.
Chick - That's an impressive long run and nice numbers. Yeah I've certainly got the speed at the shorter distances indicating about a 3:10 to 3:15 that's why I'm getting so frustrated at the marathon, but nothing is easy or a given at marathon running.
Just under 2 hours out on the bike again this morning, great out there, spring has definitely arrived
FRC - Good report from Malta. Your varied training is working very well
Chick - Tried Furman couple of years ago for Abingdon(2012), ditched it after 7 weeks when I ran a PW HM changed to 6 runs a week and PB'd at Abingdon. Good decision ditching the run you are going to more than make up for it over the weekend.
Minni - Could be an option to get coached but I think I've got to stop getting obsessed with 3:15 and vary the training, race more and enjoy it.
2old - Another good long run from you, your training is going very well.
AA - Well done on the 20.
Carrot - Nice Parkrun, I'm looking forward to seeing the blonde ponytail disappear into the distance next Sunday.
Tried a run this afternoon, slow 3 miles and all good with the calf, not a great test but at least nothing negative.
