Bike It - nice half in the heat.

GD - cracking 4 mile tempo run.

Right foot was a bit sore this weekend, so just did a very slow 4 miles this morning. It's meant to be a cut-back week for me in any case.

SJ - Yes, 3:14:59, but I've come to the conclusion that it's not a conservative target for me and, as a 15min PB, it's still being greedy.
Minni - joining the tri club?!
Wool - RR? Earth humour? I usually try to get to bed by 10pm.
GE - good set of reps in this cold weather.
MsE - great news! Just be careful.
Some scary targets! As for weight, I have crept up to somewhere near 12st However I am 6'3".
20 miles d&d. Legs felt very tired at the start, but feeling strong by the end 5M @ 9:19, 10M @ 8:39 and 5M @ 8:02. Cut-back week here I come!

Lorenzo - do you count the run-train-run as double? Santa didn't bring me a Garmin, so I go by feel and check as I complete each mile.
Jools - take care of that ankle.
Leslie - good running.
PMJ - nicely paced MLR.
KR - hope you're enjoying the cut-back week - mine is next week.
GD - good going on tired legs.
Abbers - no VLM for me. 7 weeks tomorrow is the Raceways Spring Shakespeare marathon - must get around to entering.
GE - I do loads of 9:xx miles and why not.
RFJ - nice 3x15mins.
KR - cracking progresive run.
Recovery run for me this morning - 6 miles @ 9:05m/m.

I find I get cramp at night when I've had a few days or more without running (for whatever reason).

Long run distance v. weekly mileage

Can I bend the 25-33% rule of thumb when marathon training?

Stretching and recuperation

Should I still stretch even when I'm not training?
