P&D autumn marathon 2016

Great racing spoons. A PB is a PB and 4 minutes in a year is a great achievement.

Well I decided to give parkrun everything I had and it turned out well. Was lucky that there was a group of 3 other regulars looking for 18-45 - 19 mins so we all stick together taking turns to go to the front of the pack which made things a little easier on the legs. I think we slowed a little on the last lap, due to lapping other runners but we got to 4.5k and all went for it. I finished in 3rd in 18.43. My fastest time this year so delighted with that. Not bad for no speed work in training since March. I will have to have a proper PB attempt after Abingdon on a less twisty / congested course. Ran the long way home to rack up 17 miles for the day and the proper tapering starts now. Looking forward to beer o'clock in a couple of hours.

Tom, awesome as usual. Beating most of our PBs before breakfast!

Westy, good to see you back!

Tasty, I'm also aiming to hit my racing weight. 68.5 seems to be the optimum number over the years. Currently at 69.2 with 2 weeks to go.

Nice 5k PB Ramjet. I'm giving parkrun a hard effort tomorrow. Hopefully will get a year's best.

Scott, as others have said, don't risk it if it doesn't feel right.

Looking forward to my MLR for once as its 10 miles maximum rather than a minimum.

Tasty, sounds like a tough session. Agree with Reg and HA on it sounding a bit odd.

Well done on the MP miles Ramjet. If you can do it on tired logs then it bodes well for the A race.

HA, yes it is the one with all the steps. Roseland August Trail 32 on 13th August.

Nice to see Ferg, Shazmo and Ramjet back on the thread.

Good luck with the race Scott.

As always a solid run Tom.

I've got a rest day today. First in 8 days and the start of my taper. Have been looking at the start lists for my race to see who the competition is. On the plus side one of my mates has upgraded to the 64 mile but there are now 3 very fast ladies in my race and a couple of very fast blokes. My aim of keeping my top 10 streak is looking a bit tougher.

Ultra running times

It's hard to judge with ultras as so many are off road and on hilly courses there is so much variation. Best thing to do is to race an event and see how you do in the results.

Great result for BR. Hope he's enjoying a few beers to celebrate.

Just added up my milage for the week, 71! My highest for months. Looking forward to the taper now.

Looks like BR has finished. Even speeding up a little at the end of the marathon.

Nice MP session Macca. Sounds like you got it just right. A good confidence booster for the rest of the plan.

I paced the 27 min group at parkrun yesterday which was a good recovery run after Friday's miles. Had a wedding in the afternoon where quite a lot of beer was drunk but head was fine this morning. May get out for an hour later to burn off some of the excess.

Now off to track BR.

Calling 26.2 miles a "full" Marathon

Is this a new phenomenon or have I missed something?

Running advice given out on the BBC

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