Wow - 16 miles, that's great. So that's 40 miles for the week? I was just re-reading Murakami's book today and he says 6 miles a day is the key, 36 per week on average. I think he seems to know what he's on about - he ran loads of marathons! Good luck with it
I got 23:47 in the Parkrun which I was really pleased with as I've been trying to beat my time for months! It really was great to have someone to pace me, though it still felt really hard... Maybe that 's what we all need to beat 1:50?
All the best for the marathon training Tim! I ran 6.5 miles today and it still feels hot and humid out there.
My pb is 23-52. The course is 3 laps with a hill at the start - it's not very enjoyable! he's going to try to pace me to 23-30 (not 23!) but I am not sure I can do it that fast. I'll be very chuffed if I do!
You should try Parkrun if you have one near you - it's really addictive. I'm sure you'd beat 24 as it's always faster in a race environment.
Best of luck with the marathon training! Are you aiming for a time? (Sorry you may have already said)
