Aw that's a shame Mathschick but best to err on the side of caution if you think it will cause further damage.

I was at track last night..did the coach take mercy on our tired legs....not one bit.... speed session consisting of 8 x 800m repeats with equal recovery. Managed each repeat between 3.42 - 3.50 so very happy with that. Planning a 22 miler tomorrow but weather forecast not looking good and its such a lovely day today and was tempted but best not to do 2 hard sessions back to back.

London is getting very close now...scaryily close but so excited too

Hello AF The final magazine instructions arrived in the post today Eeeeeek

I still wanna go sub 4 and am sure we both can..just don't expect me to talk all the way round LOL....

re- long runs - I am planning a 22 miler this weekend and maybe a 18-20 the following week..then down to 15  I think anyway..legs feel really tired this week as is other folks I have talked to who are doing London.

Hi Great running AF... you are speedier than me so don't mind if you want to run your own race at the marathon   I am not sure I will be able to keep pace with you and chat too as all my long runs have been done solo so not used to chatting whilst keeping up my marathon pace. Up to you what you decide I will not take offence but looking forward to it. However I had a nightmare of a long run on Monday...did it after work which I am not used to and 18 miles felt very hard compared to my 21 the week before  I guess we all get training runs like that and hope I don't feel like that on the BIG day.

AF..Have you decided if your travelling on the day or staying in a hotel the night before. Final instructions magazine due out soon

Mathschick I am pleased your feeling more positive about your running and hope you feel good to go to Manchester. I have heard its a great one to do.

Mathschick Glad your feeling better and hope you get your long run in  When is the Manchester Marathon??

I did 21 miles this morning ...a straight route right along the union canal from home to Linlithgow...Hubby came a picked me up to take me home..really enjoyed doing a one way route and hadn't been that far along the canal so was very enjoyable. Did it in around 3 hrs 20 so am happy with that

Oh dear Mathschick Such a shame about the young lass. So sad that she felt the need to take her own life. Hope your challenge went well today.

18 miles for me..tough going..think my legs are still a tad tired from track and my race last Sunday. Would normally have left my long run till Sunday but the weather was better for today than tomorrow.

Yes AF...bossman Hope your birthday was good.

Mathschick  Well done on your Half Marathon in Barcelona I do find that there seems less crowd support in foreign races and defo no charity folk although I can say the crowd was good at Lisbon however patchy at bits. Prague was much the same

Well I did my Half marathon on Sunday and the weather conditions were brutal. Very strong wind,gales icy cold sleet and snow plus a bit slippy underfoot and a very undulating course  As I said earlier I wasn't looking to PB but to do it my hope to be marathon pace and finished in 1.58.16 so was more than happy given the tough course and weather. Really only 3 mins off my PB  and was 7 th in my age category out of 35.

Hope everyone is well. its still not great weather wise up here

Speak soon
