No lactate test BeDe as I have a calf strain which is not getting better unfortunately. Had 2 physio session but so found so much else wrong she did not work really hard on the calf.
I intend a bit of cycling and rowing to keep the weight down and the HR ticking over

Interview Help ' Dicuss possible scenarios'

Well it's not an unusual approach at all and the idea is that the best candidate will not have to prepare - his/her natural response would be the one that they were looking for.
If you have done any IT PMing then you should be aware of the likely scenarios and have an answer on how you would respond. Some thoughts

Key deliverer leaves/extended sick/moves off project
Time overrun - reschedule and re-plan - extend resources
Change of requirements - get it documented - agreed by project board and then replan

16m after a 10k race is impressive VT and bodes well. 61m in a week is even better. My claim to fame is that I once ran 100m in a week - normally mileage was about 55-60. I didn't run for about 2 weeks as I was so tired.

I was inspired by Brian mentioning rowing and I went and did a 5K yesterday and then again today. Probably my first 5k in 5 years. 22:03 yesterday and then blatted it down to 20:51 today. Rowing always used to keep me fit when injured so I might do a bit more in the next couple of weeks. PS Brian and DD, I have an entry for Baildon Boundary Way on April 6th which is probably going spare so if you want it let me know.

Hey Brian, I did about 5 years of C2 rowing - racking up a lot of metres , including rowing at Worlds (Boston US, European - Amsterdam, when I was working there and English - Manchester) It kept me very fit. Co-incidentally my rowing FM PB is 2:46 and my running one is only a minute different.

I take all this lose 14lb and gain a minute a mile with a pinch of salt. Yes you will improve but a lot is around how strong your heart and mind is, not your legs.
Slight calf strain at the moment but a bad chest as well so taking a week out and a bit of physio

I suffer lot of calf issues but I never find cross-training to cause a problem whilst I am injued. Cycling or rowing (C2) works for me

Andi, how many week is your taper due to last? - if 3 or less then don't fit a long run - if 4 or 5 then maybe make it a 15. Hope all is OK with the back.

Good new Roy re the deltoid

RoadWarrior - you sound like you have it all planned out and good luck with it. The only comment I would make is that I dont believe you need the 5K/10K/HM times you suggest to go sub 3. Looking at McMillan for instance for a 2:58FM he says 18/38 and 1:24 would be good enough.

The other thought is that you imply that you will be doing ~60mpw at an average of 7mm or MP. At least that is how I read it. That is way too fast for marathon training and would be more suitable for someone trying to break 6:30 pace (2:52).

When you say sub 3 that normally means high 2:50s, just dipping under 3 hours but I suspect you are intending training to go much faster than that

You don't need deltoid muscles to run 20 miles Roy - I dont want to hear any more excuses
