Stewart - Well done on the couple of runs last night and this morning. Yeah, I'm looking a slightly modified P&D 18/70 route. Without the doubles and the longer of the midweek MLR will be trimmed a few miles. 15 miles will take me 2:05 at best, not sure I can face that before work on a Wednesday or Thursday.
I'm not sure how 7 miles @ (a true)LT is even possible for your average punter, or anything other than an elite athlete. I'm an ok runner but that'd be 7 miles at my 15k pace The 14 @ MP doesn't really thrill me either but I may do that in a race.
Gaz - You have plenty of possibilities to aim at. I'd be surprised if you aren't very close, or under 20 for 5k. The sub 20 5k/40 10k/90 half treble should be realistically achievable goals in the next 6-12 months.
Stewart - Nice tempo session, they are always the toughest runs to do on your own I find. Not sure how I'm going to find a way of doing the 7 mile HMP run in the P&D schedule in the build up to Manchester! Thankfully we have a tempo run this Thursday with the group. Well done on the gym work too!
MG - That's a bit of a tasty pace for the 9 miles! Well done
Tek - Well done on the 9 miles, and it'll be good to have someone to do the long runs with in the build up for your marathon. I'm trying to convince my mate to join me at Manchester, but I don't think he fancies doing the long runs with me! Even though we'd be both aiming around the same time...
Gym yesterday, and got a (refundable) hotel room booked for Manchester. Train tickets should go on sale in 8 weeks time, so thats going to be the point were I decided to completely financially commit to the race or not. I actually just noticed I've tickets for a gig in Glasgow that same night, so I better actually get round in a respectable time to get back north!!
