15West, what are your running plans/goals for next year (assuming the worst case scenario of no more races this year)?

Scott, it was the Belfast HM last Sunday - shiny new PB of 1.25.13 . I'm keeping my head down and fingers crossed for another 3 weeks of solid training before Chester. Hope you're nicely settled in your new pad!

10.5 (should've been 12) last night for me. Happy enough with pace, but legs feeling a bit tired. Looking forward to a couple of easy 5 milers over the next couple of nights before this weekend's back to back tune-up race and long run. Will add 1.5 miles into the weekend runs to meet the mileage quota to stay on plan.

Sounds like you've narrowed it down to a well-defined (and sensible) margin. Go get 'em slugger

Dr.Dan - what are your tempo / LT sessions telling you that you're fit for pace-wise? I think that half the battle is standing on the starting line 'convinced' that you can run a particular time.

15West Noooooooooo 

Dr.Dan - so potentially, you're thinking about two marathons @ MP pace 4 weeks apart? I was wondering about how that would work i.e. what would the minimum amount of time be between two races that would let your recover and perform well at both? And I know that it's not recommended etc. - has anybody done this?

Madbee, I'm liking your moxy! You're in top shape at the minute, so why not?!

MileMarker my HM on Sunday (after mini-taper and carb load) reminded me about that good old race day secret sauce - if you've put the training in (which you have), you've got a good chance of achieving your target time. It's all too easy to talk ourselves out of that frame of mind. 15West is spot on in terms of keeping focused on constant pace - the minute things start to get 'comfortable', it's time to pick up the pace!

I was thinking about Wenty just yesterday. I miss 'im.

7 miles w/8x strides earlier for me on quite tender legs after the weekend. Good to get out and loosen up though. Taper madness hasn't hit yet, although I am enjoying the countdown of training runs!
