Moof - nice mileage.
Leslie - hope a bit more rest does the trick before your 10 mile race.
Minni - lovely scenery!
Speedy - nice one!
SJ - good racing - hope the hip is better today.
Only did a couple of miles this morning as my left hamstring is feeling a bit tight. May as well make the most of my cut-back week.

Popping to say Happy Easter - and well done to Jools. Cracking effort by Badbark, and (((Ant))).
My weekend hasn't gone quite according to plan. Went out to do long run early on Friday morning and just after 6 miles tripped and fell. Cut my chin and knee, bruised a rib and gouged lots of skin off my right hand. Yuck. Lots of blood everywhere. Still had a nice time away, even though I had to give the swimming pool a miss. Just did the 21 miler - time on feet. 3:01:04. Cut-back week. Phew.

All the best to the VLM crew. Looks like it's going to be sunny, but hopefully not too hot. Getting up early to grab the TV remote before the kids start watching their usual Sunday morning drivel...  This should be amazing!

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?
