Hiya Minni, yes, written my own schedule... For some reason I'm procrastinating on this run... silly as the sooner I do it, the sooner I can happily get under a blanket for the rest of the day.  I wont actually go to the coast as its a bit far to drive, and I don't think running with that much assisstance is a good thing  

Anyone know any results from Watford half yet?

Sounds pretty windy here too!!  Kinda wanna go do my run on the coast as it's 7 mile easy and 7mi at marathon pace- I could do an out and back with the prevailing wind behind me for the 7MP miles.  last time I ran on the coast  (other than sm75) it was even higher winds but we did it the wrong way- into the wind on our way back... Ouch!

Minni I would hope you might miss running if u were injured too... Like Superman is... I missed a fair few with my ankle issue and my fitness told it but now I'm back on plan, my fitness is returning too

I'm celebrating with red wine while I knit not an auntie yet, but any day now, so getting the practise in 

great news superman- make sure your return is cautious- given u were ultra training ur endurNce is great, And like many say it's about maintaining speed in the final miles.   .. In my experience- this has so much to do with your 'self-talk' so if u have extra time perhaps focus on some visualisations- imagining what it feels like to break that dream barrier can be quite amazing and exciting and emotional too  

who's park running tomo?

Tom, Hello, just seeing that you're not well.  I would definitely miss the half or take it easy.  I know its horrible when you've been training so well and you know your half deserves a really good time, but racing it could affect your training capabilities for weeks after if this is flu.  Best wait for the next half when you'll be even fitter.  I did last year and got a big pb just by waiting to race 6 days...

Here's the proof:

Glad the freakout passed Hellsbells, you'll have to do the same for me when mine comes though! x

Good that you're taking your easy runs easy enough that they feel like a rest.  That's a good sign

Hellsbells, I managed to alter the distance to km, whilst the pace still showed in min/miles  

ITs perfectly natural to have a freak out leading up to the London Marathon in particular because its such an effort to get a place.  Your friends and family love you no matter what happens, and if something does happen I'm sure everyone on this thread would support you too, including the lurkers  

Any nuts with any dried fruit would be fine really, I just love apricots and cashews.... another I love is apple with peanut butter, but that's less easy to transport

Snowing here, so glad I did my run in the morning and tomorrow's a rest day where is the race on Saturday?

Not feeling so speedy anymore Malcs.... just did your 5x1000m session with 90s recoveries... I hate doing speedwork in the morning, so dunno why I just did it.  The guidance was about 4:15 for each.  Whilst I managed one faster at 4:12, and one spot on 4:15 all the others were slower, and the last two felt super tough!!!  Ah well, a rest day tomorrow, which will involve a swim.... also gonna do some weights after my afternoon clients today.

4:25, 4:12 4:17 4:22. 4:15

And regarding my knowledge of nutrition, my belief system does ride on the fact that our senses should protect us from poisoning ourselves... Mr I does have his own free will, he chose to eat it!!  

Fingers crossed for good results Tim
