Abbers - had a slight change of plan and did 90% this week - 60% and 30% planned for the final two.

All the best to Jools and MsE tomorrow too.
Last long run d&d this morning - 18 miles @ 8:27 m/m (9 slow and 9 easy). Did some mental arithmetic during the run and made it 1609 days since VLM 2010 - one day for every metre in a mile! 14 days to go to Mable and counting

Abbers - that's tough - really feel for you.
GM - 27C?! Nice running.
marrows - thanks for the tip.

marrows - nice double.
OO - take it easy.
Leslie - ice cream recovery - yah! Steady progress.
Lorenzo - come on, admit it, you love those intervals really!
10 miles including 11 x 100m strides today. Poor visibility again today, but was determined not to let it beat me. I ended up having to stop every few minutes to wipe the condensation off my glasses!

Moof - that is a tough session to end a good week of training - well done.
Leslie - you'll soon get used to the early starts!
PMJ - congrats on the parkrun win and return to form.
Birch - excellent final long run from you - I am planning one more, but maybe 18 or 19 instead of 20/21.
Lorenzo - hope you had a good celebration. No official target, but as long as I can finish in one piece I'll be satisfied. 3:14:59 or less would be nice,
OO - congrats on your parkrun win too.
Badbark - fantastic result - looking very promising for Dublin.
SJ - sounds like a hard session.
Bike It - like the easy access gate idea!

Birch - perhaps not confident exactly, but really looking forward to the possibility of standing on the start line with no injuries!
Leslie - nice early run! Fun run with your 7 year old should be just that (fun I mean, not early).
Bike It - good luck with the experiment - should be interesting.
Lorenzo - yes, it'll soon be dark when I'm finishing my runs.
Abbers - more good gym work.
Jools - recover quickly.
MsE - cracking run.

marrows - no, I am a puny weakling. I thought I was going to strain a muscle.
Lorenzo - definitely sounds like you're starting to enjoy those intervals! Although the 24 hour supermarkets are about 3 miles away, fortunately there's one which is only 1.5 miles away and it opens at 6am. 
TAR - sneers of encouragement - lol!
Abbers - keep plugging away.
Birch - another good session. Are you starting the taper next week? I'm going for just a two week taper.
10 steady miles @ 7:31 m/m.

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?
