OO - I'd call the slower end of general aerobic slow, probably akin to P&D's MP+20% (or a recovery run in fact), whereas easy would be around MP+10%.
Abbers - sounds painful!
VTr - enjoy your slow/easy run!
SJ - Nice session to prepare for your hols - have a good one.
4 mile recovery run d&d.

Fishy - nice MP run.
Abbers - hope you survive the remainder of the cricket season!
GM - hope the recovery goes well. Mablethorpe is definitely on barring any injuries.
VTrunner - stormer of a run, there.
Posting a bit late, but 12 miles d&d at the usual time this morning - 6 slow and 6 easy.

SEdan - welcome to the thread - pleased you decided to de-lurk. Good luck with your sub 3:15 attempt in October.

Jools - good LSR bagged.
OO - it was supposed to be windy here too, but never materialised.
SJ - some good sessions d&d this week - or last week.
TAR - good improvement - you sound suitably chuffed.
Minni - that's great - just be careful!
Managed to wake up in good time for 10 slow miles this morning.

Leslie - you must be really frustrated.

Lorenzo - I was in Brittany, just west of Quimper, so a lot cooler than where you are!

Birch - you have put together some excellent training. Only 7 weeks to Mable now!

OO - nice park run.

GM - hope the op helps the running.

Did an easy 12 miler yesterday morning. Should have been more but not used to waking up so early yet! Rest today and then I really need to start upping the mileage.

Back off holiday - had a great time, even though we queued for 2 hours to go from junctions 3 to 2 on the M25 and then went through the worst sustained torrential rain I have ever seen on the M11 Now trying to catch up.
Leslie - nice return to parkrun. I haven't run one in months either.
Birch - another excellent LSR.
PMJ - good back to back racing with the Ealing mile and parkrun.
GM - sounds like it would have been very tough for the ultra runners.
Jools - great 3k. Just outside your phone? Ah, I see. A PB after all too! Nice 20 miler.
Lorenzo - good family outing to parkrun.
Speedy - good to hear you're out running again.
Moof - still a good 20 miler.
GM - can't imagine how tough it must be for you. Hang on in there.
Only another 11 days to go! Had a nice 6 miler this morning including a couple of faster miles. A bit different from jogging to the boulangerie and back!

Lorenzo - nice bike mileage. Shame about Israel, but I'm sure you'll enjoy Spain.
GM - good you have some close friends to support you.
Leslie - probably wise to revise your target.
Speedy - glad you enjoyed the athletics. Hope your injury woes are sorted out quicker than you fear.
Birch - didn't realise you were planning to run Mablethorpe - might see you there if we both make it through the next 9 weeks!
Fishy - excellent LSR. Enjoy the hols!
Abbers - nice easy run.
PMJ - good luck with the Ealing mile.
Moof - good to hear from you - sounds like some good training has been going on. Which mara are you doing?
VTr - good miles there!
GM - sounds like a good evening out!
Well, I had to give the pre-race talk to just myself this morning I did see another runner - in thick tracksuit and woolly hat?!!! Magic Mile went OK - seemed like a fairly even pace and ended up with 5:36, which I'm happy with. I think that's a couple of seconds slower than last year but not too surprising. Off to France this weekend for 11 days, so enjoy your running everyone and I'll catch up with you all later.

Fishy - good reps.
PMJ - there have been a few runners around in the Walks recently, so you never know! What would be your ideal warm-up distance for a fast session? I usually do 3 miles.
Birch - sounds like a good session.
Abbers - yes, and a holiday hair-cut - two for the price of one!
SB - great running. Sounds like sub 90 is there for the taking.
2 mile recovery in new shoes this morning.

marrows - nice intervals.
Leslie - well done on toughing it out.
Abbers - sounds promising - take it easy.
Sorry guys, my earlier post was a bit ambiguous. I meant that this morning I did my final interval session - my Magic Mile event is on Friday at 5:30 am (not expecting anyone else to turn up!)

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?
