The general trend seems to be to spam and annoy everyone you know until they give you money just to go away. Unless you have a real connection with the charity / cause then you will probably be ok with a Facebook appeal and people will be more than willing to donate.

Alexander so you said the music makes you run faster not your armband... So your armband does fuck all. Glad we clarified that I wish you had that in your pr "it does fuck all but it's a convenient way to hold your phone". Bet you'd sell more that way.

 Trouble is you went down the pretentious bullshit route of this armband will make you quicker which everyone including you knows is bullshit.

Oops looking at the LL version (Liverpool Leeds) but my plan sounds suspiciously like FWo's 

From 0 to a Marathon in 22 weeks.

So my maffetone ish plan is plodding along 10km each night for the last two nights. 26km to go to get 100 miles for the month. Should do that only for the third month this year.

knee can cope running quite often on the dreadmill. Running on roads, I still need a day off after each run to rest the knee and let it recover.

i feel like I am getting my fitness back finally, which is a good feeling.

Advice needed

It's not the same but using a static bike, or a treadmill might be easier and will at least keep your cardio system going Static bike will also exercise some other muscles which isn't a bad idea (or if you have a real bike, use that).  Or just run a bit less that week use it as a recovery week, work hard for two weeks, and have a recovery week every third week, most plans have each 4th week as  recovery week, so do similar.  Keep the runs shorter, but depending on how often you run maybe do more.  4 or 5 x 8km runs?
