Leslie - hope the niggle amounts to nothing. Nice totals buidling up.
Birch - double that next year, then?
PMJ - worth the extra 1 then.
Poacher - or the extra 27.3? Isn't Hull a city of culture Take care of yourself - sounds like a good rest might be the best thing.
GM - 52x52 might just be beyond me, but I thought 100 x 26.21875 might be do-able.
OO - good luck with the parkrun tourism.
SEDan - nice one!
6 recovery miles this morning. No running for a couple of days as it's Mrs GD's birthdcay tomorrow and going away for the night.

TAR - thanks. You hear all sorts on Women's Hour.
GM - dedication in the sub-zero temperatures to help your friend, well done.
PMJ - sounds like a decent target. Enjoy the 12 miler at lunchtime.
11.3 slow miles to finish the month on 235.6 . The reason for the extra .3 was to round up the total so far for the year to 2473.

GD - speedy 17 miler and good specificity!
PMJ - very impressive weekend of racing even if it was a few years ago Hope it goes well in Hatfield today.
Leslie - good long run and a strong finish.
Birch - you're not old, just experienced and mature Good start to the new training philosophy.
GM - both breakfasts were after the run! Hope you feel suitably rested after the Christmas shopping and ready for a run today.
Literatin - good to hear from you. I can only dream of 2xHM + 6mins. Come to think of it, 2xHM + 36 would be a good start!
5 recovery miles this morning to finish on 74 for the week.

Abbers - P&D is certainly well tried and tested on here. 
 - great to hear from you! Who's John McAvoy?
Birch - worth a try.
Leslie - I hear the sub-zero temperatures are on their way over here for next week. Cheers.
KR - home for 6:20, I think.
GM - impressive lack of recovery required. Shopping was just a quick 5 mins in Tescos.
18 miles d&d at silly o'clock (9 @ 8:27 and 9 @ 7:46). GPS died at 9 miles, so turned round and reversed the route for the second half. Just about to put the kettle on for second breakfast Have a good weekend of running folks.

Leslie - hope it's warmed up a bit over there today.

Abbers - which plans are you looking at?
Badbark - welcome back! Shame about the man flu. Looking forward to hearing about your crazy exploits again.
GD - good track work with some fast mile reps there!
OO - enjoy the XC.

Leslie - stonking run. Have you got a race coming up? Don't peak too soon!
Abbers - do you have a place for Brighton, then?
GM - it just becomes routine if you do it often enough - most days I think I am on auto-pilot for the first 3 miles! Sounds like a good recovery.
15 miles this morning - would have had time to make it a long run, but was on the bus today so had to be back home around 6am. 8 miles @ 8:21 m/m amd 7 miles @ 7:38 m/m.

Leslie - you just need to get up an hour earlier!
Abbers - good flexibility.
GM - the convenience of a marathon on your door-step must be a big factor when choosing your target race. Either way, I think you certainly have the capability to qualify for Boston.
KR - speedy club run. I'm usually in bed by 10pm or earlier sometimes.
7 miles @ 8:42 m/m this morning.

Gerard - great performance, and great attitude.  Loved your report (I do enjoy a detailed race report) !

 I really just wanted to run and take part and see familiar faces again and enjoy the lovely camaraderie that comes with the joyful pursuit of keeping going with the one foot in front of the other thing that we do.

I experienced this at the half marathon my daughter ran - athough I was only supporting, it did make me wish I was out there, after only one race this year.  
. . . 

Time to stop messing about, and make some plans !  

The local VoGit seems handy, Gerard  . . . . .

OO - nice racing  



Birch - fools rush where angels take a break This is not going to work, is it?!

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?
