8GA last night and a recovery parkrun(nr 98) this morning.
My club mate ran VLM in a mankini for the last 2 years Westy so you might get to like it and keep it for VLM !!
Scott - you are only a wee lad, man up and drink on! Im 37 and heading for pints shortly and the PLAN is to do 15LR in the morning!
StewartC - as the other have said test out the target MP on long runs but even then dont get too hung up on your pace, i think about 6 weeks out from race day you will have a better idea where you are and if you are hitting your paces. But for now see how the target MP is feels at the end of your long runs.
I do my LT run on the track, its not too bad once you get going. The track I go to is usually empty so I run a mile in each lane. Much prefer training for an Autumn marathon plus we will probably get a heatwave in April and none of us will be ready for it on marathon day!
Wow, P&D training has well and truly started as this thread is moving faster than an LT session. Welcome back Madbee and well done on the brisk 7. Westy defo poo in her bag! Well done to all those getting out before 5am, crazy stuff!
My plantar has eased a lot more than expect so might give it a test tomorrow with a gentle run, Cmas party tonight sounds like it going to be messy so a gentle run might be all i'm able to do! .
Scott - enjoy your meal and hope your enjoyed the blonde! Madbee & 15west - hope ye are feeling better. Fergster - sounds like you are getting lots of mile in, have you started the plan.
Disaster for me - Haven't run since my marathon on Saturday and on Tuesday out of nowhere my heel started hurting. I had planter fasciitis last year and looks like its back. (in the other foot) I was out for 3 months and didn't do a spring marathon last year so I hope the same isn't happening again. Will give it another few days and go to the physio, although its the type of injury that physio's cant do much for.
