Jools - another PB! Amazing.
Birch - good reps.
marrows - sorry to hear about the hip. Hope it recovers quickly.
Leslie / MsE - nice slow running.
OO - good to have a blast.
Rest day today. Calf was painful as I was hobbling about yesterday. Not as bad today though.

Fishy - really sorry to hear your news; must have been a terrible shock. Thinking of you and your family.
It appears those back to back runs were not a good idea after all. Cut short this morning's run with a possible calf strain. D'oh!

PMJ - just under 16 weeks to go till the Raceway Spring mara, so need to be doing 20+ milers very soon. My plan was to do my MLR the day before my long run, back-to-back, to try and improve endurance. At the moment, just very slow long runs, so should be ok, I hope. After Christmas, if I am doing MP+10% or fast finish long runs, then I'll make the MLR shorter and move it back to earlier in the week. Take care of the niggles, now, after the XC.
Leslie - nice parkrun!
Birch - these young folk, eh?!
Speedy - maybe you're not quite there yet, but the hard work will pay off.
OO - good parkrun and early long run.
Fishy - 8 miles is good progress.
Lorenzo - good racing - not good conditions yesterday; I hear the Norwich HM was a washout too. Congrats to Mrs L!
SJ - I don't own a set of weighing scales, so not sure about rule 3 - trying very hard though.
KR - podium!!! Well done on a very controlled race. Hopefully that's boosted your confidence.
3 mile recovery run to start my cut-back week d&d.

Wow, quiet on here yesterday! Pleased to hear you were spared the rolling pin, PMJ.
18 miles @ 8:59 m/m to round off a 67 mile week. Cut-back to follow Christmas Lunch with the family today as my brother and his wife are off to Australia soon and then we're going to see Martyn Joseph this evening - haven't seen him for years, but probably my favourite musical artist ever.

SJ - take care.
Bike It - sounds like a logistical nightmare. Good luck!
Fishy - sensible.
Poacher - was that an early start or a late finish?
15 miles @ 9:04 m/m this morning.
Just remembered to say, PMJ, have you seen anything about the Wrexham marathon? Sounds like a good possibility, but I think it's a new event which I guess is a bit of a risk. Maybe a bit too far to travel for me though. I wonder if Mennania has any inside information?

OO - pleased to hear all is well.
Leslie - well do they say listen to your body!

Fishy - Physical Jerks! I am relieved to hear it.
Woke up late this morning, so not out till 5:15. 12 miles @ 7:35 m/m. Now rushing around trying to get all my pre-work jobs done!

Leslie - good double.
Birch - 1500th week of recorded training - that is amazing!
OO - congratulations on a massive achievement.
Abbers - I'm sure your patience will pay off very soon. Steady as she goes.
TR - cracking half considering you didn't taper.
Fishy - I presume that circuit was nothing to do with nightwear. Good news on the knee.
Minni - you're sounding very positive.
5 mile recovery run d&d.

KR - nice 16 miler + parkrun.
Birch - good long run.
Speedy - great to hear you're back running again. Enjoy all that racing!
OO - congrats to OO jnr!
Lorenzo - nice parkrun tourism. Hope you're enjoying the mud.
Poacher - good pacing and yet another 26.2 under the belt - that course looks very inspiring.
Leslie - good mileage for the week.
PMJ - yes, you're right, Raceways Spring Shakespeare is currently the best option I can come up with. Great 10k time on a windy day.
Jools - wow, that's amazingly fast and a cracking new PB.
Fishy - still looking good.
12 miles inc. 6 up and down the bridge @ 7:56 m/m. One side of the bridge had the streetlights off, so now going to report it to the council - no collisions but it was not good.

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?
