Peaking too early with training??

That's not that much slower than your target race pace. Sounds like you are almost "racing" every week. Nothing wrong with the weekly long runs but you should slow them down to an easier pace to avoid burn out.

Have a look at McMillan running calculator for more specific advice.

Oh yes the 55 mile "recovery" week. Looking forward to a bit of a rest.
But don't feel too achy after today's exploits.

Re setting marathon pace, my main aim was to go out at the pace of my last decent marathon 6.48 and go on feel from there.

Buy Newton running shoes to improve speed/ impact on heel ? Which one?

An expensive gimmic in my opinion. If you want to move from heel to forefoot striking you can do it in any shoes. The above advice on building up very slowly is well worth following.

We'll done to everyone who got their long runs in this morning.
Just finished my 18 with 10@ MP which wasn't as horrific as I was expecting. Haven't analysed the data in depth but think all of my MP miles were between 6.35 and 6.45 which is a good sign.
Got spectacularly blanked by another runner on my cool down miles. Stepped on to the grass to allow them to use the narrow pavement and didn't even get a nod of thanks. The only down point in what was a great session.

Demolishing the kitchen this afternoon.

Just catching up after a busy couple of days. Will have to have a proper read of everyone's runs and injuries.
5 easy for me yesterday, 11 today, including a parkrun practice. 18 with 10@MP Tomorrow which I'm not looking forward to that much.

Good luck with the puppy RE. Don't bank on getting too much sleep this week.

Realistic Goal

Its a free 5k that runs every week. If you have a recent 5k run as fast as you can it would be easier to give a guide of what to aim for. If your run is a long way off then it may be worth looking at times etc when your training progresses.

Running advice given out on the BBC

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