HR -- that's a big 3 days, my legs wouldn't have appreciated the tempo on day 3!
DrD -- oh no, really hope the hip gets better. Reminds me of TT being out of action for ages after banging his knee on a child's cot; brief moments with horribly lasting consequences.
PP -- great to hear things shaping up.
Hope your calf continues to heal TR.
Bedders -- my usual recipe if you want to test if MP is realistic is to do 10M easy, then 10M at MP, then see if a few more still feel comfortable. If so you've probably got MP about right. Better to do that than the entire run at MP + a bit. But that's a tough session, maybe 3 weeks out is too late for it; could reduce it to 5M @ MP.
Another taper tune-up for me, but I was feeling a bit sluggish (maybe the unaccustomed speed already this week), and I had a hint of tightness in my outer calf too. So 5M generally light, with 1M @ 5:58/M as a bit of a tune-up without risking anything. I also completely redressed my blister wound yesterday, really hope it holds together during my HM. I had similar problems for the last two Cambridge halves and got away with it mind.
