Poacher - well done. Sounds like a great effort and a great course.
SJ - sorry to hear you were in trouble so early on into the run - that looks like a fantastic first 2 legs.
OO - not too shabby! Well done to junior OO.
Lorenzo - sounds like you;re going to enjoy the new bike.

Fishy - you sound as accident prone as me! Take care of that knee.
Badbark - just be careful.
OO - enjoy the Coastal mara!
Leslie - that's certainly not bad for a 3rd track session.
14 miles to finish the week this morning. 7 super plod miles @ 9:42m/m(!) HR 122 (I think my body is trying to tell me something) and 7 progressive miles to finish (7:59, 7:39, 7:03, 6:55, 6:44, 6:39, 6:28) HR 154. 74 miles for the week. Ready for a rest tomorrow and cut-back next week! Have a good weekend everyone. Looking forward to the smackdown!

Lorenzo - that offer of a ticket is tempting, especially as I expect to be gardening on Saturday
Got my act together this morning and was out at GD o'clock again. Snuck in this week's LR (to ensure an extra long gardening session). 18 miles including a very pleasant lap of the village of Wolferton, which is a deviation from one of my usual routes. First 9 miles @ 8:53 m/m HR 133 and 9 miles @ 8:01 m/m HR 149 (slightly inflated due to another prolonged spike near the end).

SJ - taper in full swing now!
GD - finishing at 6.50 might just about qualify
OO - 3 x 1 mile @ 5:20 is going some! I couldn't even do one of those.
Lorenzo - well done squeezing in those runs.
Leslie - looking forward to cut-back next week! Good reps.
Moof - think I'll stick to running in the early morning. Looking forward to the impending smackdown.
7 mile recovery run d&d. Had a lie-in and didn't start till 5:00am

Leslie - great session.
GD - yes, it was lovely out there 2 or 3 hours ago! Just think of it as GD o'clock
Fishy - don't know all those places, but I am envious.
15 miles this morning. First 7 @ 8:53 HR 134 and last 8 @ 7:48 HR 151.

GD - good 20 in the bag - with all that quality stuff you are doing, you could easily drop the pace a bit more on the long runs I reckon.
OO - you must be in taper mode though!
Lorenzo - I presume that's a new pair of running shoes you're talking about- not your shorts at that price! As for younger Lorenzito - smokin'! 
PMJ - nicely ticking over with a decent parkrun there.
Leslie - saving your legs for the next track session?
Poacher - nice progress. No 'A' race for me yet, but I'm hoping to do a few without piling on any pressure instead. There are a couple of possibilities in September - Thetford Iceni and King's Forest marathons (same weekend - so just one of the two!) And then I'll probably do the Peterborough HM (GER) in October and maybe the Norfolk Coastal marathon too, so I might even need to buy a pair of trail shoes! The only possibility of a serious GFA attempt would be Abingdon, but I'm now thinking that's probably unlikely.
A very slow MLR this morning - 13 miles @ 9:23 m/m HR 127.

Fishy - sounds like you had a cracking day.
OO - great parkrun and smackdown win.
Nice day at the beach yesterday - the sun was just coming out as we left...
5 mile recovery run d&d this morning. 72 miles for the week.

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?
