Thanks Clag and JR.

JR, well done for the good run on Sunday.  and already back out again!

Stephen, that's a cracking pace for 15 miles. Sounds like the knee is in good shape.

Won't be running much this month, I think I have to give my knee and foot some recovery time. Will be checking my bike later tho!

Happy runnings all

Well, that was interesting! Not my best time, but still under 3:50.  Lot of problems with my knee in last 7-8 miles and I was getting cramp in my calves, and I never suffer from cramp!  Had to run walk, in small sections, these last few miles. Had to be attended by first aid when I finished ... Well short of my PB, but I felt, in terms of overcoming adversity, it was probably my best marathon.

Also, I do think Brighton organise a great marathon, lots of people on the streets, the sun was shining, very friendly and in terms of organisation, almost as smooth as clockwork from my point of view.

Hope you guys are enjoying Sunday.

Clag, likewise, fingers crossed for you.

JR, looks like some good running going on.

Stephen, hope there's no longer lasting effects.

Feeling nervous and excited! Brighton Marathon tomorrow.  Not looking (too much) for a particular time, but hoping to enjoy my third marathon. (All Brighton -home town)

Happy runnings

Clag, Good to see normal service resumed.

JR, I have no idea. I went out at a gentle pace myself today and yet it also seemed like a real slog! At one point a friendly runner went past me so I joined him for a mile and a half, running about 1.5 minutes per mile quicker, but as soon as we parted ways, I slowed right down again.

Stephen, that is a good pace!

20 miles for me today, but knee still doesn't like to do anything over 16, so used run/walk.

Happy runnings all

Jason, Hope the Barry 40 has gone well (assuming I got the date correct)

Stephen, I ran my first marathon at 48 and only logged one week at 50 miles. I don't think we need as many miles in the legs when we get older. Having said that, if I wasn't injury prone, I'd still aim for 45-55 per week. I reckon that I could go quicker if I got more miles in, but I'm really planning on running for many years ahead (all things being equal) so don't push my mileage. I'm not on my feet as much as you, although I am on my feet a lot at work, so reckon 50+ miles per week is probably pushing it. It's the long steady runs (18+) that will really help your stamina and the shorter tempo runs that will increase your injury risk if your mileage is too high. Only you know how your body responds and we are all very different, so I'm just sharing my own experience, if it helps. ... And well done on the 14.

Well done JR, 14 over the weekend.

Clag, hope you're better soon.

Happy runnings

Well done Clag and JR. Good results from both of you. 

Got in another 10 miler today without any knee issues (although I was wearing a knee support and I was still 'aware of the ache'!) I think my flat tarmac 10 miler was somewhat slower than Clag's hilly 10 miles though!

Happy runnings

I think we can safely congratulate the Fetchies on their win this month! 

On a less competitive note, Thanks for the good wishes. I have been doing knee exercises all week and did manage a 7 miler today. Hardly earth shattering, but I shan't give up on the April marathon just yet!

Happy runnings folks

Brighton half this morning. Fitness wise, I am getting back to some standard, but unfortunately, recurrence of a knee injury meant that all my sub 7 splits up to mile 9 were to no avail, as I hauled myself in at 1:37 having had to walk for about half a mile and run very lopsided for the last few miles(!) Could be worse, but I am worried that the injury might be serious enough to harm the Brighton Marathon attempt. 

On the bright side, the weather was lovely, the run was well supported and up to mile 8 I was kind of enjoying myself 

Happy runnings everyone
