Lorenzo - I woulde say hill reps are note-worthy!
PMJ - not a clue about cadence and stride length - unti I read others' comments!
OO - excellent HM debut from junior OO.
(((Abbers))) - hang on in there!
Birch - look after that knee! My number (37) arrived yesterday too. I'll be happy too if I've done my best - although 3:10 would be really neat as it would halve my PB!
5 easy miles d&d. The countdown continues...

Lorenzo - very good hilly 20 miles.
OO - another cracking parkrun.
SJ - take care of that ankle!
GM - good hilly run from you too.
Bike It - good to hear the knee is OK.
Leslie - nice progress.
MsE - glad to hear you're recovering.
PMJ - always nice to have the option.|
Surely new WR doesn't affect WAVA for us old gits, unless Kimetto is one too!
Speedy - great to hear there's no fracture.
Moof - crikey, that's some long run and weekly mileage. No wonder you're ready for the taper!
5 miles with 3 x 800m @ MP this morning. Forecast for Sunday in Mablethorpe looks good - just keeping an eye on the wind speed though!

Birch - walk recoveries - sneaky!
VTr - cracking subLT session.
Lorenzo - 30+ miler finishing early on a Saturday morning doesn't bear thinking about.
moof - sounds like a tough fast finish session.
Last hard session today. A bit late out this morning and I got a bit carried away. 11 miles @ 7:47 m/m - 10 progressive finishing with 6:34 and 1 w/d.

x-post Bike It - might be 'cos you haven't done any running for a few days - I know that often gives me niggles.

Birch - 5 inc 3 x 1 mile at MP - doesn't leave much room for w/u, w/d or recoveries! Interesting to see you have Thu/Fri as rest days next week.
Moof - that is definitely full on.
Leslie - good 5 miler.
A certain purple fairy must have got a half-decent WAVA too.
6 slow miles this morning @ 8:48 m/m.

Birch - are you following a set schedule or is it of your own devising? I'm still trying to decide what to do next week (other than not a lot!)
Leslie - nice going.
I think I managed 76% for my parkrun PB, so a lot of improvement needed for 80%!
3 mile recovery run this morning.

Abbers - had a slight change of plan and did 90% this week - 60% and 30% planned for the final two.
SJ - that's double bad luck - hope today went well.
Lorenzo - congratulations - good confidence booster for tomorrow.
OO - another excellent parkrun.
Moof - that makes three great parkruns! Well done.
Birch - four! Have you got a target in mind for Mable?
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

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?
