P&D Spring Marathon Thread 2015

Andrews148 and Ramjet, it's been interesting following your progress on the Hanson's  plan, cheers for sharing. I'm reading the Hanson's book at the minute (shhh, don't tell the others ) and will possibly try it for my autumn marathon. That said P&D has worked for me...that said a change in training might keeps things fresh. Either way, great running from you both.

Ladyfunrun, try not get hung up on that 4x1200 session - it's only one workout. I think that it was literatin that said that she didn't bother with some of the tuneup races, so as ever, try not not to get too hung up on one session as it's not going to have any major impact overall.

Struggling novice my arse Millsy... It's all about the long game 

Well done on your 5k pace run Slowkoala - enjoy Easter in the Dales.

StewartC that sounded like a brutal run, and indeed a bloody good one.

Scott, I'm about to head out for 14, I'd be happy with a 7.4x. But won't be stressing about it!

Easy does it El13, rest and roll.

Full tilt on those final intervals Westy. That 3x1600 is one of my favourites as it's the last 'proper' run until showtime.

acp, that last interval session is a bit of icing on the cake and a final reminder to fight through the discomfort in the last few miles. Just hammer it out!

Hang in there Madbee. I know what you mean about needing a break from training. We're all getting tired.

ladyfunrun, good luck with those intervals - you'll ace them.

EDIT: x-Post. Nice progression run there andrews148. The mind (legs?!) boggles.

Did you see the the tornado predicted for the second week of April in Paris?! Global warming indeed.

12 w/5x1200s earlier in sun, sleet, snow, rain and howling winds. It was bloody grim at times, but I've thawed out now. 14 tomorrow in better conditions by the looks of things.

My new Kinvara 5s are giving me a bit of gip - I had to cut a corner of the tongue off to stop it from giving me that 'tied your laces too tightly' pain on the top of my foot.

Millsy, I'm feeling the cumulative stress and tiredness of the last 15 weeks too. I've definitely found the last couple of weeks to be tough mentally - all this strict diet and no drink is making me a right cranky bastid. Bring on the taper indeed

Skinny Fetish Fan, one of my reasons for doing this whole marathon lark is to try to stay fit and healthy. There's too many 'what-ifs' to worry about in life, so I'll just plough on regardless!

Good luck in your first marathon - if you could bottle that feeling when you cross the line, you'd be a rich man

Morning all.

5 x1200s today it is then. The rain and wind will hopefully stay away as it's sunny but a bit blustery at the minute.

Wilmslow Half bloke - another reminder that every run is a gift and all that.

Good ticket score ladyfunrun!

Finish Gantry, I wouldn't get too hung up on those few seconds. I comfortably managed 2.59.01 off a 1.25.18 HM last October. Factor in a decent taper and some rest and you should be good for go.

Marrows, I hope that your foot heals soon. Another reminder of how easily it is to get injured.

Off to the sun again Menn?! Not jealous at all 

running eye, get rollin'! All the cool kids are doing it.

Great tough LRs Millsy and acp, well done.

Scott, that's not like you at all - a bit of wind eh?! Another lucky bugger who's off on holiday 

Rolling and stretching is doing its thing MileMarker, cheers. Cracking 22 miler btw.

Andrews148, that'll be the Marathon Fraud Police looking for Westy. Well-funded and take their duties very seriously. Nice knowing you Westy
