Hi everyone, sorry I've been missing...been busy but trying hard to fit runs in too.

Iain, hope your head wins tomorrow!
Emmy enjoy the well earned 2 wks off work (are you having 2wks off marathons as well?!!)
MF hope your ankle gets better soon- I guess resting on the sofa over the next few days could be tricky!
Big G ...Although I'm new onto this thread, I've lurked for quite some time and am aware of your desperately sad situation- I'm glad you have close friends and family around you for support.

SK I did tail runner for Parkrun as well today in 44:11 - it was quite scary really as the last lady (70+) was recovering from an inner ear/balance problem and she got quite wobbly towards the end - she insisted on completing - but needed help to stay upright once she finished - I hope she recovers fully before she tries her next run.

Shades I've been using my new weekly club run as the tempo run... it's almost at the pace you suggested, but every mile or so we stop/wait to that ok do you think or should I be more exact with pacing and go solo?
(Good luck with the decorating!)

Craig I'm hoping to keep Parkrun going too but usually do long runs on a Thursday now I've retired - can't do back to back tough sessions!

Oh my Andrea, your mileage/paces for these first few weeks make mine look pretty feeble... think I might need to man up a bit!!

Looks good though... plenty of variety...good luck!!

Hi and congrats Andrea! Will be following your 4:30 plan - I did London in 4:33 last year and am in for Paris with my son - sooo hoping to PB and go sub 4:30!!!

Is running in the dark easier

Hi all....hope everyone's taking care on these icy mornings.
SK your cold weather layers sound just like mine....essential on long runs!
Mamafox bet your mum is really excited to be staying with you all...does that mean you can make use of a resident childminder?
KK well done on the Parkrun PB even if it was a shorter version!

My Saturday run was also a shorter version....thought I'd entered a Santa 10k fun run but by 2.5m the route was back at the venue and someone had put a medal round my neck!! So not even a 5k - should have gone to Parkrun ( or even specsavers)!!!

Well done SK junior, great PB, def worth a hot choc!
mama fox, good to hear you're fully recovered.
Shades had to scrape my car too this morning to get to a very frosty Parkrun - I forgot my barcode so good job it wasn't a PB, but managed negative mile splits.

Khani, sounds rough, hope you get better soon x
