Great to hear from you again MM - you're obviously just starting marathon training again as you wouldn't be on here again
Brilliant sub 3 PB from salf in Amsterdam. Knew about it on FB, but didn't like to break thread etiquette on here. Now her training schedule would be interesting to see, as I believe she didn't do any stuctured LSR's as we know them, but a lot of fell running instead!
Interesting debate again about LR pace. I'm finding it hard at the moment to get the right side of 8 minute miling. After a couple of weeks, tonight was the first 5 miler all over 8mm pace rather than just a couple I think you are right Gul, it does take a bit of practice. In the next few weeks I want to build my LSR back up to 16 - 18, but all over 8mm pace.
BA (Hons) in graphic design and still doing it! Thanks for the kind words of support on my digital portraits. Just finished another one yesterday of my father in law, which I am pleased with http://creativetonicuk.tumblr.com/
