Well done Postie on a great marathon too - nothing left out on the course!
Leebe - plenty of consistent advice for you, I'd add that the long runs are vital but mustn't dominate your mileage, I think you need to back up your Sunday long run with midweek medium long run of about 2/3 the distance upto 15miles.
Will join thread as regular again once VLM training starts around Christmas.
One question for now, looking for a southern half to do in the VLM build up. Did Hasting this year but the hills didn't help for a great time and confidence boost, and anyway it's too close (3 weeks) to VLM this time. Thinking of Reading on March 2nd - any thoughts on the event eg. too big? Or the date, 6 weeks ahead of VLM I think maybe 4 weeks better?
