Unfortunately my wife has had to pull out of the Abingdon Marathon so we have a spare place going. Send me a direct message if you're interested.

Thanks, and happy training everyone! I'm off for my 20 miler, legs still heavy from a midweek threshold run...

Cmc7 - I've had similar experience with P&D leaving me tired out, so I'm definitely approaching it with caution this time and aiming to listen to my body more. Like you say, I'm going to make sure I do the sessions with good quality and then totally relax on the recovery runs, and even the general aerobic runs.

John - congrats on the 5k PB! Always good for training confidence. There is a school running track near me but weirdly it's 300m so quite tight turns! You're a little faster than me (5k PB 18:10) - have you thought about a target time for Abingdon yet? I'll be hoping to beat my PB (3:09.42). If training's going really well then maybe I'll think about going sub 3:05 for a VLM good for age...

John - I'm also following P&D but I've decided to go for the up to 55M schedule as I've been a bit injury prone recently. Might throw in some extra miles if I start feeling more resilient. How did you get on with that first lactate run?

(Sorry everyone else, that should maybe be on the P&D thread...)

Nader- sound likes a sensible choice.

Tom- that's decent mileage for a first marathon, good to hear training's going well. Had a quick stalk of your posts and looks like you're pretty speedy too! Any specific feedback/thoughts on P&D 55-70 12 week? Just glancing at it, there was a 70M week with a 12M w 7M lactate and 21M long run. How was that??

Thanks Millsy. I've got the P&D book and followed the up to 55 for my last marathon. I'd like to up my mileage a little but 55-70 seems a bit much. But they do feel like well put together schedules (along with all the training tips).

So I'm thinking either a hybrid between up to 55 & 55-70 or maybe the Daniels 2Q. Will probably test out some of the early weeks of all three before training starts.

Who here has done Abingdon before and what's it like?

In - my first marathon since London 2013. The wife has got a place too. We've booked an airbnb in Abingdon.

My A goal will be sub 3.05. Currently thinking about picking a training schedule. What's everyone else going for?
