Bro-safe flight and good luck on Sunday, you are well prepared.Glad Im not travelling this weekend bearing in mind your travel record.

Physio today.Hip still sore but back not as much of a problem, possibly because now Im back at work Im sat down more?

Free-nice HM time...didn't know there are hills in Norwich. Next time wear a big bin bag while you wait for the start...always keeps me warm 

Bro- looks like you're going to keep running every day until your marathon.Some fast miles there. Your watch sounds complicated  . Ok so what is your race plan? 

Barry- yes staying uninjured is the big problem . All the IM I know put runs on the back burner and do lots and lots of biking and swimming  . How are you planning to structure your training prior to London ? More emphasis on running then up the riding after it? Nothing wrong with a lazy week....or two 

10k on the TM yesterday and 5and a bit 7.17 AV tonight

Bro-not the best idea crashing into gates at this time.  Try and get through the rest of the week in one piece. 

Saying that ,I'm back to self destruct mode....fell of the TM and shredded my elbows and banged my hip and back. Oh well that's a different way to do an easy 5 and a bit run.

Nell-putting together some nice runs there . For the last ten days I have been vegetating and drinking beer.

Barry- yes the heat takes its toll(Boston, Chicago).Enough LRs there and you did a fast MLR most weeks.The only thing missing  from a traditional schedule is extra volume made up of slowish and steady stuff. I found that only when I ran more than 50 miles pw regularly I cracked 3.15 but then I suffered more frequent injury.For London I stayed around 50 pw and added 3-4 swimming .

Wont see GP until Dec and as the back/hip isnt improving decided to see physio later this week and do a few miles.

Barry-hope you feel better after writing that excellent report.I can empathise with you as the latter part of my Lisbon race seemed to fall off a cliff too.Ironically your time was by many standards very good though , I know,not by your standards Probably best not to over analyse at this stage just bask in the knowledge of having completed 14 quality marathons.Maybe get some input from a coach for London.You have a great base and are uninjured so its an ideal platform to work from.As your not 50 until after then it looks like you'll get to sub 3.15 before I did.

Chick-impressive consistent happy windblown running.

Bro-looking cool as ice and outstanding reps there.Bet you'r  rearing to go.

Nell-yes Leffe was a very tasty brew ...though I couldnt drink too many of the 8.2% stuff. Nice to be able to run near 7mm for 6 miles comfortably.

DD-are you seeing a physio for your injury? Any pronosis? Bet your swims soon returned to standard...planning a tri or two?

Nothing by me for a week-had hoped a rest would see improvements but that has proved not to be the case.MRI earlier today and now a 10 day wait to see the doctor to review it.Dont they realise I have some running to do!!!

Barry-gutted for you.You put a lot into that one.Marathons are sh!t...sometimes.Thats why we are hooked on them I suppose.If its any consolation and it wont be, I didnt break 3.15 until I was 50.Hope you get some proper rest before starting the London and IM campaigns.

Free-you are flying-looks like a fast one to come at Norwich-what is your HM pb?

Bro-how are the pre marathon nerves? When is it again?

Nell-thats a lot of weekend running.Dont think missing one will hurt .

Chick-impressively consistent and dedicated as ever.Rain is ok if its not cold.

Long weekend in Belgium developing a taste for their excellent beer,with no running but hip and back very troublesome so glad MRI is on Thursday.  Trying not to worry about how long this is going to go on as I want to get going laying a base down for London.

Finding it difficult to take in what went on in Paris yesterday especially as I was in Brussels last night at a concert a short walk away from an International football match.

Bro- not long left for you now. Nothing risky from now on.I quite enjoy running in the dark....at the moment . My MRI is next Thursday then a review with the doctor who knows when.

DD- yes you should know better but so should I. I'm beginning to think we reach a stage where pain/injury/niggles are the norm so we just get on with it (and moan alot ) . I'm as patient as you I think 

9 miles around 7.39 mm av last night and 5 tonight escalating from 7.43 to 7.07  av 7.23 mm.  That's probably my last run until next Tuesday.
