Jooska, if that's the results from volume training then I'll try increase my weekly mileage. I ran a 2:58 on 30 mpw so just imagine what a 70 mpw could do..

I was wondering how to adapt a sub 3 training plan to help me edge towards a sub 2:50 race... Thanks Steve.

Roundman - well done, great time. Both to get a pb and your sub 2:55 target. 

Tom - it is a bit of a bummer and just my luck but on a plus point, my legs are 100% even with the 4 matches of stop start running so once the bruising has healed I'll start planning where to start with training, might take the first few weeks to start rebuilding a good base before following a plan. I am determined to go sub 2:50.

Andy, Literatin, Golfer - great running yesterday. Golfer, although it wasn't the result you were looking for it is still a great time.  I missed the marathon yesterday as I was taking part in a charity football tournament, which ended up with me in A&E with a severely bruised foot. (Metal studs stepped on my foot). I am eagerly waiting for the applications to open for next years VLM so I can get my gfa entry in...

morning folks!! 

Malcs -  The weather was perfect on sunday. really was glad to have no rain though as the trails would of been quite muddy..

If i don't get a chance later, Good luck to all of those running London on sunday. I get quite jealous this time of year as I work in Blackheath and all the prep for the marathon is all around me..At least i can be glad in the knowledge that next year ill be ready to run. (just need to make sure i put my GFA entry in)

I second that about Chester...an amazing race and a good pb course. I got my sub 3 there last year 5 months after a tough 3:17 Edinburgh marathon. I'm hoping to go sub 2:50 there this year...

Tom - that seems to be a strange situation. If they were shoes that you were trying for the first time, then I could understand you not being used to them but since you did a fair chunk of your training in them they should have been ok. I know I should rotate my shoes but I buy a pair and run in them till I need a new pair so training and races are done in the same shoes. Sorry to hear that your foot still hurts, it must be so frustrating wanting to run and push for that target but being grounded by an injury.

I didn't do any running this weekend, instead I went to South Wales with a few mates and we did 2 days of mountain biking through the welsh hills. So much fun and a good test as far as fitness goes... I think I am ready to restart my marathon training woohoo...
