Chick- the scales are brand new...but are they accurate? Don't gloat too much there's a few of us here with a bit to do yet 

AA-yes remember you did 2 in 6 days. This one will be easy. it's amazing how much we underestimate our experience and the miles already in our legs.Be confident. Think I'm doing a reverse taper too.

Nell- well done  getting out in the rain particularly as there was no need. I waited for the rain to stop. 

9 miles tonight av7.29. Felt a bit easier than last night.

Barry-marathon training is going well I see.Interesting about your shoe crisis...wonder if you just couldnt get used to running slowly possibly engaging different muscles and found your mojo again at a fast pace.

Chick-great placing on Sunday well done.This low HR training may be worth a try.Im looking forward to my post race meal already.

AA-looks like the knee is on the mend so all should be good for you.Venice isnt the easiest of running cities hence the laps-wonder where the route of their marathon goes..thats in a few weeks. What is your running plan from now on?

Nell-good to see you back and another quality HM there from you yesterday. Im sure youcould bang out a good marathon time tomorrow.Did you say that youll be at London next year...probably in the FGFA section.

Minni-so pleased your return has gone well and you're confident to ramp it up after Marine Corps.Good solid training too and fingers crossed for that GFA.Patience will pay off. Ive never been to lisbon so am looking forward to it. The first 21k is pretty undulating with a series of hills from from a base of 1-5m upto 20-25m approx (I would call that hilly) and the rest is less so but with a proper hill towards the end. Im not expecting PBs and am doing this one for charity so it should be a fun(?) morning.

Bit shocked yesterday to see I had put 8lb on in 10days so now on a starvation diet for a week. Did a test 10k last night around my usual route-splits:7.36,7.12,7.22,7.11,7.10,7.13,1.23. Didnt feel easy and was a minute slower than 3 weeks ago . Need to get one more LR in this week I think.

Chick- very well done there and a great confidence builder for the future.  Pressure is on AA and I now

AA- I know how you feel. I've been troubled with my back for he last week and wonder if running is a good idea except it's less painful when I do.  Trust the trainng. You'll be fine. Ice got to try and lose the weight I've accumulated the last 10days so I'm not expecting great things in Lisbon.  

Oh no it's now thunder and raining in Venice -as if there's not already enough water here. 

Managed just over 200 miles in September and about 41 slow miles this week. Just done 8miles on a half mile circuit around my hotel. Seem to have lost my speed so will be glad to try and sharpen up at home next week

Brief pop in. Away. Limited internet. Hope all going well for marathons coming. Only 28miles last week and managing on TM this. Too much of the wrong nutrition too.

AA-strange thing the taper...it seems to make you think that's it ..stop ,when really there's still a bit to go- especially if it's a four week one.Try and get that 16 done this week and another next and you won't regret it. You'll be fine once you're out on the road. My problem is that my other life is getting in the way of my runs for the next week or so. Think the TM is going to get a bit of use.

DD- plodding hippo....a legend..,.and allegedly refuels on gin
Chick- any taper madness ?
Didn't get up in time for planned LR so lunchtime alternative was a bit shorter - 16.1 miles on the TM first 10 around 8mm last 10k at MP

O4S- guess your right marathons do demand structured training which can be a pain and get in the way of life. Those cakes sound tasty. I'd be tempted to run that race just for them 

just a 2k swim today. Still cream crackered after Sunday

O4S-that listof runs is hell of a way to' have fallen out of love with running'....I'm now beginning to hate it too

Barry-another quick 5 mile session.Lisbon will ony be no 12 for me and Ive been going around 10 years.Better get my act together.

AA-nice tally of marathons there.You'll  smash that 10k

Just noticed my HM time gives me a WAVA of 80.06....my first ever in the 80s....probably the last too.
