SJ - another epic performance - well done.

OO - welcome back. Nice racing plans.
Birch - good stats - some very solid training there.
BI - hope the plans all come together.
5 mile recovery run d&d to start a cut-back week.

Leslie - Sorry you have to wait another week. We went to see some friends last night, so I knew I wouldn't get much sleep!
SJ - hope you were up earlier than me then - good luck with the SBU35!
GM - still thinking of you and the tough time you're having.
Birch - congratulations - nice photo and cake! You just managed to head out before I finished today.
MsE - is that 15 mins from when you posted?! Maybe dodging all the other folk and their animals didn't help with the pacing.
VTr - cracking mileage - best take it easy before the race.
Fishy - good reps.
Bike It - good to hear from you. Good luck with the return to training.
Lorenzo - good long run. I must experiment with some fuelled running soon.
These late nights are playing havoc with my schedule. Not out till 4:42 today. 21 miles in just over 3 hours. So that's the time on feet run d&d

Birch - Thanks - no rush then! Hope you're recovering from the furniture removal and the 14 miler - well done.
6 slow miles for me today. Looks like I only be getting a handful of hours' sleep again tonight before Saturday's LSR.

Lorenzo - welcome home! Nice hilly run - good prep for Comrades.
Poacher - I always thought DM stood for Dangermouse.
11 mile tempo run this morning, including 7 @ 6:47 m/m. Certainly blew a few cobwebs away.

Birch - I managed to get back before the serious rain started yesterday! No stress on Sunday - we're always pretty laid back and informal - just busy on Sunday morning trying to sort everything whereas normally I'd have all week!
marrows - well done to your other half.
GM - sounds like a good bank holiday weekend. After my holiday it was 7 weeks to Mablethorpe. So I am planning 2 full-on weeks, 1 cut-back, another 2 hard weeks and then 2 taper weeks. This will be the 2nd week, so looking for somewhere around 65 miles with maybe a 21 miler this weekend.
SJ - impressive holiday continues.
10 easy miles inc. 10 x 100m strides this morning.

Fishy - nice reps.
Jools - 12 x 6:49 sounds excellent to me.
Leslie - bet you can't wait till Friday!
Birch - I haven't put my money where my feet are yet either.
VTr - another good week's training bagged. Enjoy the taper!
Rest yesterday, although I did have to take our Church service at the last minute. 14 miler d&d this morning, including looking for somewhere to buy some milk. 7M uber-slow and 7M easy.

Birch - strangely enough, my run was a solo effort too. Hope you enjoyed it!
Mennania - hi. Good luck with the base building for London - I entered the ballot again this year. If I don't get in I might skip marathon training for a bit and wait till next Autumn.
OO - enjoy Italy. Busy yesterday in the garden, but got an early night after Dr Who.
SJ - sounds like you're having a tough time
I found the 20 miler a bit tough going - first one for a while.Rest today.

Apologies for the flying visit. Aftger 3 and a quarter hours sleep, I got out at 3:54 for my 20 mile run. 10 slow / 10 easy. Back just before 7am and now making breakfast

PMJ - good MLR. Yes, planning to get the first LSR done this weekend, although I am out on this evening, so not too hopefully about getting up at 4am tomorrow morning. Enjoy the holiday.
MsE - nice tempo run.
marrows - hope the 10k race went OK.
GM - you are going through a really tough time - well done on keeping positive.
SJ - nice holiday swimming.
Poacher - I have my sights firmly set on Mablethorpe now. Shame you can't make Abingdon.
10 steady miles d&d - which for OO and any others interested that's around MP+5%. (Still don't know what MP is though).

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?
