I'm gradually building the miles too,my LSR's (9 min/miles)feel quite comfortable but as soon as I up it to 8mins/Mile or quicker my heart rate goes way too high.Just need to be patient.

Eggyh:The race has a 5pm start time,their website says "temperatures will be 18-20c,very correct temperature for running a marathon" haha.Im thinking,if I go easy on the booze on the Thursday then drink plenty of water on the Friday and Saturday I should be fine.

Nodster:Good luck with the fundraising and the brave/crazy attempt at 20 marathons.

Hi folks not been on since the start of my holiday to Florida.The running while on 'vacation' started off well,but the late nights and walking in the parks took its toll.I only managed 3 runs and never ran the last week or so.Ive given up on my plans of an autumn marathon as I'm too far off the pace.Im going to try get fit enough for the Glasgow half.

I noticed some chat about HR further up.Im similar to running rodent.My slow run HR isn't too bad but as soon as I up the pace my HR rockets.I bought the run less run faster book. I'm going to give it a go,I'm going to move around a few of the days to fit in with other things I have going on.The LSR paces seems to go against everything I've picked up in the past,seems a bit quick.

I'm hoping to go to Cancun with my wife in December,without the kids this time.Lets call it a late honeymoon/anniversary.We got married in Mexico 18 months ago and never really got time to ourselves as the kids were there.ive noticed the cancun marathon and half are on in the dates we are planning to go.Im just wondering if any of you ever drink in the days leading up to a race.The race is on the Saturday 5th December.We are planning on arriving on the Tuesday.I don't fancy staying booze free for 4 or 5 days of a 7 day holiday.There is a flight on the Wednesday but it's a bit more expensive.

Eggy:well done again on yet another PB,you are being rewarded for the hard training.

An early morning run in the Florida sunshine for me,I'll likely stick to 4-5 milers til I get back home,the heat and humidity is unbearable even a 6am.Running round Disney Port Orleans resort sure beats Kilmarnock for scenery tho.

BM:My shifts are Saturday night through to Thursday night,with a Friday being my main night off.My company look for me to try do 3 out of 4 Saturday's a month.The Saturday night shifts on the railway are a nightmare as its a 12 hour shift.Im not a great sleeper,I generally get 6 hours if I'm lucky.I very rarely get back to sleep before I leave for work.I will still run or train at the weekend if at all possible,Im just making a Friday my long run day to leave myself free for family stuff on Friday and Saturday afternoons.My wife is very supportive of my running hobby but it did annoy her that we couldnt do stuff cos I had a 2-3 hour run to do.

I must say running in these warmer temperatures is tough tho I do enjoy it more than the winter wind and rain.

Hiahs:thanks,that's my plan,quality over quantity.I will still put in the miles,just over fewer sessions.

Cheers Eggy,injuries are our biggest nightmare.I now make sure that my post run stretch routine is as important as the run and I do extra stretching on sore or tight areas rather than hoping it'll go away

Thanks for the feed back folks.As you all know,marathon training can take over your life If you let it.I made the promise to my wife that I would do my long runs on a Friday so we can enjoy a drink and family time on my Friday night off then I'm also free to do stuff on a Saturday rather than trying to fit in a long run.

Eggy:My plan is similar to yours.Im just wondering which day to do which run.I plan on doing an interval session,a midweek longish run,a tempo run,a LSR and hopefully a weights session(squats etc).I was thinking
Monday:intervals
Tuesday:medium run probably at mp +30secs
WednesdayTempo/gym
Thursday:rest
Friday:LSR
Saturday:3-4 mile recovery if I have time
