What do your 5 sessions a week look like in terms of days, miles, pace.
I'd save the racing (what look is like tonight's run was) for races and concentrate on building up some more base endurance.

Raisins and fig rolls are definitely on my banned list in the 48 hours before a race.

5x1k for me the pace was surprisingly consistent as was very windy again.

Good luck to all those racing at the weekend.
We have Ben, the 401 Marathon guy, in Salisbury on Saturday so I'm going to run the whole route with him. Will tie in nicely with my last long run before Abingdon.

I'm going to be running with him on Saturday so I'll report back. He does seem very genuine and at least he has plenty of people running with him to verify his performances. Unlike another "famous" multi marathoner.

First week in October usually.

Am looking forward to the "it's so unfair" threads to start popping up.

Menn, agree with Reg, the half and 10 mile targets look very easy to achieve with your marathon time.

I've heard that Tokyo can be a bit of a pain at the start as they let the local runners start in the pen before the fast foreigners.

Really enjoyed the report Menn. A London champs time and a negative split. Can't ask for much more than that. Berlin is definitely on my bucket list. It's a great city and loads of great drinking establishments. I'll have to speak to Mrs Mills although she's very keen on going to Boston.

I managed 7 miles on the Isle of Wight. Does that make me an international runner as well?

Sounds like some great Berlin performances from the threadsters. Looking forward to the reports. If possible, can they be up by tomorrow evening as have to go to the Isle of Wight for work for a couple of days and need some evening entertainment.

Well done on the PB Spoons!!

My MP session didn't quite go to plan, was blowing a gale this morning and I definitely overlooked the first 6.5 miles going straight into it. The 13.1 section came out at 1.33.00 so a bit slower than I wanted but combining tired legs with the wind I'm not too disappointed. 52 miles for the week, 20 at MP or faster so no wonder I was struggling.

Good luck to all the Berliners. Surprised that it's not on any TV channels.

Nice 16 miler Westy. I'm experimenting with gluten-free dinner and breakfast to see if it makes things better for tomorrow's 18 w/ 13@MP

Calling 26.2 miles a "full" Marathon

Is this a new phenomenon or have I missed something?

Drink plenty of water for a 10k was the message.
