Jools - that's a quick recovery.
Abbers - hope you avoid the lurgy - if it's not already too late.
Birch - nice session.
PMJ - the weekend's coming!
PJF - well done if you actually managed to run for more than a few seconds at a time.
GM - the King's Lynn parkrun is only 1.25 miles from my house so very handy! It's just the late start that normally scuppers things This weekend Mrs GD is catching a train at about 8am and the station is right next to the park, so it would be rude not to parkrun
Not feeling greart this morning, so cut short my recovery run and did just 4 miles.

Bike It - something has to give. Hope this week is better for running.
Abbers - nice progression.
VTr - enjoy the rest!
Minni - Good to hear from you - sounds like you've been busy! Where and when is the Marine Corps marathon? And yes, it was me who was going to do the Newark Castle marathon - shame it was full. There is another one in Newark in December, but it's the Saturday before Christmas so wouldn't really work.
Lorenzo - enjoy the reps on the prom!
I might actually get a chance to do parkrun this week, so did 4x1200m this morning. Not very encouraging though - 6:32, 6:25, 6:44, 6:47. Will struggle to do sub 20 on Saturday. 8 miles in all today.

SJ - no wonder KOM is not very well known round these parts! Hope the ankle improves very soon.
Jools - that's a fantastic MP. Looking very good.
GM - good time. Look forward to the report. And there it is! Great one too.
VTr - excellent 10k racing.
Badbark - awesome result - even more so as it's your 3rd sub 3 in 6 weeks!
Birch - nice pacing and congrats to your son - cracking result.
9 miles to start the week with 12 x 100m strides.

OO - great parkrun and a podium finish to boot.
Fishy - good to hear from you gain. I'd better improve all my PBs quickly before I turn 50 then!
PMJ - nice pacing without your watch.
Birch - good parkrun to claim 1st VOGIT.
GM - go smash it today!
SJ - some good bike training, but what are KOM sprints?
Lorenzo - well done in the survival 10k. 2nd place is impressive.
4.2 recovery miles for a 59 mile week. I hear the rugby didn't go too well. I don't think I was too popular for choosing to song a sing about a Welshman last night

KR - good progressive run.
Birch - enjoy Mablethorpe - would like to run it myself again one day. Someone on this thread made the same comments about MK so it doesn't sound ideal. The only appeal is that it's reasonable to do in a day and not on a Sunday.
Lorenzo - sounds like a cracking run. Not sure about the anniversary marathon idea!
OO - hope you have a good parkrun.
11 miles inc. 2 x 3M this morning - turned out at 6:56 and 7:01 m/m.

Abbers - very tidy run.
GD - must be a nice feeling to get the GFA acceptance form!
Relieved to get my email rejection this morning - better than my wife finding a rejection magazine when she gets home! (VLM falls on the weekend of our daughter's 18th birthday). Now got to find an alternative. Manchester sounds good, but that would be three consecutive crazy weekends (one in between is our wedding anniversary...) Milton Keynes is the day before my 50th, so I might be able to wangle that as a birthday celebration! Oh no, that's still 3 consecutive weekends

PJF - sounds like a good target and achievable too. Not sure what my next target is. Looks like it could be a spring marathon. In the short term just back to base building.
First MLR for yonks this morning. 12 miles with 6 slow miles (8:56 m/m) and 6 steady miles (7:43 m/m).

PMJ - shower at work? Luxury! Nice mileage. And good to get the "you're in" mag. I reckon I've got an excellent chance of getting a ballot place this year seeing as 24th April is no good for me next year

Jools - any PB is impressive, but on tired legs as well is doubly so.
VTr - hope tha taper does its magic - just  be careful if you decide to go for it. All the best with the 10k at the weekend.
Abbers - enjoy the rugby.
Leslie - good luck at the podiatrist's.
Lorenzo - great mileage. Just short of 100 for September here 1450 for the year.
9 miles this morning with 12 x 1 min hard / 1 min easy.

Abbers - good running. Not sure how far I would have run - probably something fairly similar as it was really based on how much time I had!
GD - certainly an eventful month! All the best with the new job - nice way to celebrate your birthday.
GM - another enjoyable run.
OO - hope you're back to feeling 100% very soon.
KR - cracking run.
4 recovery miles d&d.

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?
