RW F7 – aiming for 3.15

Yes, well...that's what we're doing. It will give me something to moan about. Plus, we have 5 days in Paris city itself.

Don't think there's anything that wrong with running a bit faster sometimes...as long as you recover well for whatever is coming next. Good to have a mix of different paces in your training...IMO.

BR - yes, that appears to be happening. We have 4 nights in Paris, 2 nights at Eurodisney. My friend went with his kids and his review was "It is really shit and I hated it".

Too busy watching stupid ch4 interactive science/debate thing about skunk last night which can came up with groundbreaking revelations like skunk makes you paranoid and listening to music while stoned is pretty cool...and missed the Paula Radcliffe doc on itv4. Anyone see it?

Nope, 2 weeks after this weekend. Gulp. Don't feel as confident as I did leading up to London last year...but not going to over worry about it...most important thing really is it's a family holiday to Paris! I have always struggled to hit those paces...but has normally gone ok on race day. So far....

I don't think I've ever hit mp for the full duration prescribed in P&D for long runs...I quite often don't hit the LT paces or VO2 paces either. I just try not to worry about it...too much!

Good idea on moving the runs round Tiny/Lit.  All ok here, 6mi easy run later.

RE - that's 70-85 18 week plan right? That is tough. I am doing 12 week plan and it has 22 after the 7mi LT...but I may add a mile or two just so I can feel your pain. To be honest I'm more worried about 7mi LT, especially as this stupid windy weather appears to be a permanent feature these days. Also - you not planning on taking on any carbs at all during the marathon?

Despite being M&S they are still way too unsophisticated for my palate.
