SJ - off to Porthleven in Cornwall, so not expecting too much sun. Penrose parkrun is less than a mile away
Bike It - hope the calf recovers quickly.
GD - good work and well done to jnr too! Tragic about the accident on Leith Hill.
OO - smackdown!
VTr - I should have read your reprimand before today's run Good Hadding.
13 miles today. 6 @ 8:23 m/m avg 141 bpm and 7 @ 7:19 m/m avg 166 bpm - somewhere in the second half had another HR blip of 225!

PMJ - nice pacing. Re pace of my long run; I think I just got carried away a bit, probably because I was late up and didn't want to get home too late! Looking at the mile splits instead of a normal P&D type LR it was 1 mile @ MP + 20%, 8 miles @ MP + 10% and 11 miles @ MP.
SJ - good effort - progress will come.
Badbark - that's a cracking HM time!
Speedy - nice accidental ultra!
VTr - Just be careful. I have a f ew full days full-on then just over 2 weeks easy as I'm off on holiday.
10 miles with 10 x 100m strides this morning round the field.

Leslie - it's tough on the bench,  but your determination will help see you back on the road.
Badbark - congrats to baby - sounds like she enjoyed herself. I didn't race to post yesterday - arrived home around 7:30 and had a cool bath first.
SJ - good swimming - I'm sure I couldn't do that.
Birch - that's good going on 2 hours sleep!
VTr - cutback sounds the sensible option. Great long run.
Rest day today

Bike It - must have given you a fright.
SJ - good tempo work.

Badbark - some astonishing running there. Very impressive 23 miler with parkrun.
Abbers - hi. Good to hear you're okay.
Birch - makes perfect sense now. Hope you're 100% recovered.
Leslie - Oh dear. Let's hope the physio will do the necessary. As for my gate with the useless handle, I think it's a small deterrent against less agile burglars. Or at least that's my excuse.
VTr - sounds like you are acclimatising well.
6 plodtastic miles d&d @ 9:06 m/m HR 122.

SJ - pleased to hear it.
GD - that's a very speedy session.
OO - not an enviable position.
Bike It - progress continues.
VTr - hope you can find some suitable races.
This morning's session was lots of laps of the field with some strides, but when I got there I discovered the GPS watch's memory was full and I couldn't figure out how to clear it. So popped home (0.19 miles away), to get the manual and had to climb over our garden gate as the handle wasn't working. Anyway, I got it sorted in the end and did 7 miles easy warm-up (8:50 m/m and avg HR 140) and 5 miles with 10 x 100m strides @ 8:06 m/m HR 154.

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?
