Running rodent: Good to hear you have found the cause of your problem,one thing I've learned is,if the pain doesn't go away in a few days just bite the bullet and see the physio

Runningtap:with those training paces and half marathon times,you should Defo aim for a 3:30 finish.Im following a RW plan too.Im doing the 3:45 one.I changed a couple of long runs so I could do 3 20 milers tho.

TD:I bet you are still fitter than most of us dream of being.Get back out on they long cycles and you'll soon feel better about your self.

Welcome back roger,good to see you are getting back to running well again.Just take it easy and you'll be fine.

Sounds like there was some really good running this weekend,well done on the long runs and PB's

Went to do to a scheduled interval session tonight.I didn't feel too good physically during my mile warm up,so I just did a 3 mile tempo run.Im still feeling the effects of my run on Saturday

I tend to eat quite high carbs most of the week,400-450 grams.On the 2 days prior to long runs of 18+ I will just substitute a couple of things,for example instead of a ham Sandwich I'll have brown rolls with banana.

John Jenkins:I had a similar problem during the week.My left glute,hip and groin were pretty sore.I had to cut my midweek long run short after the pain became worrying.I just took 2 days off running and did loads of rolling and stetching all muscles on my left leg.I managed an easy 4 miles on Friday then a 20 miles yesterday,it did get a bit sore in that final few miles but if I'm being honest I never expected to finish the 20 miles.good luck with the injury,taking time out is the hardest thing to do but it needs to be done

McCarthyc:I also asked the same question regarding MP runs on another forum.I too,after my 18 mile run at a minute slower than MP,thought "how can I possibly run 26.1 miles faster".The general consensus is that your LSR's are training your body to burn fat and not solely rely on carbs,that the faster pace/higher heart rate requires.Also if you do too many MP runs your body won't have time to recover to do the quality speed sessions during the week.I think that the speed sessions along with the LSR and the taper period,come together to form the Magic formula.

It must work cos people on the other forum have run multiple marathons,and some of them even suggest running long runs at 90 secs slower than MP.

I plan on doing 3 20 mile runs.I did 20 yesterday at 60 secs slower than MP.I plan on doing one where I'll run the final 5 miles at MP then another where I'll run either the final 10 miles at MP or mile 10 to mile 15 at 30 secs slower then mile 15-mile 20 at MP

Hi folks,don't know if I've posted on here,I do most of my posting on the a Paris thread.I decided a few weeks back to run manchester this year.Ive tried not to get too excited Incase my injury woes reappeared.Im starting to get a bit more confident now that I have an 18 miles and 20 miles runs under my belt.

I've just booked the premier inn at Trafford centre,how is it for getting parked near the start line on the day?

Good luck with the running today folks

EggyH:I'm a sucker for trying to keep the pace my schedule suggests.Im just curious if I'll still get the full benefit of the LSR if I allow my HR to go up by keeping the pace.For example in the last 3 or 4 miles my HR was closer to half marathon levels
