Kiwi - keep your chin up, you have done really well so far, carry on with the training but don't push the knee and make a decision regarding abo nearer the time ( 6 weeks on Sunday)
Nell - Good running, please don't get injured, someone from the thread needs to have a good autumn mara. Don't know about cycling helping my running as I've only ran twice in the last 3 weeks.
2old - Can't wait to try open water swimming next year you make it sound so appealing.
kfc - Sounds like a plan, no more marathons til VLM apart from one in October. But you're right you need have to have the speed at shorter distances(which I have) but this needs to be balanced with the endurance we get from marathon training(which I don't seem to be able to get)
Not great news from me, only swimming so far this week, saw my physio yesterday who recommended no running until pain/ache completely gone from Achilles, he gave it some treatment and said to carry on with calf raises and I've applied some KT to give it some support, so unless I have a miracle recovery in the next couple of days no HM for me Sunday.
