Madbee - massive PB ! Great stuff. As lit say's it's not that long since London and you'll be a bit fatigued. When I did the 5 mile race 10 days after London, I was fine for the first 3 miles, slowed through the fourth mile and only narrowly avoided a complete detonation during the last mile, if it was a 10k I think I would have had to slow right up in the last mile and some.
Skinny - whoops.
Mr V - were you a DNF or a DNS?
My HMP session went pretty well last night. It was tempo Thursday at the club, prescribed session was 4*8 mins with 60 second recoveries. Ended up covering ~1.25miles during each set so a total of 5 miles at about 6:30 pace, which is probably a leetle bit too quick but it felt about the right intensity. Might start Edinburgh at that pace and see what happens (wheels falling off after about 10 miles I suspect).
DT - I guess it depends on what you're hoping to achieve. If you're for a better time than London then isn't following the same plan going to bring similar results? Didn't you feel the overall weekly mileage wasn't high enough? However, if you're just looking to maintain at a similar level then I reckon the plan you've outlined above would work.
Bournemouth is a good marathon by all accounts but isn't it very exposed to the wind? One of my colleagues is doing the new Bristol and Bath marathon in the autumn, which may appeal to you.
