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

Looking for a bit of advice from the more experienced runners please.Im looking for some ideas on how to plan and train for a marathon on a 4 day week.Family and work commitments mean I can only really train on a Monday to Friday,and maybe a recovery run some Saturday's.Sundays are a definite 'no no'due to working long shift on a Saturday night.Im looking to do my long runs on a Friday as it is my main night off.Is it possible to still knock out PB efforts with 4 solid sessions.

Eggyh:You've definitely got the commitment and the determination,I'm sure you could do if you aimed your training towards a solid 3:30 plan.You're heading in the right direction with your PB's at most distances in the last year or so,have faith

Great running last weekend folks,loved the running reports.

Eggy:If you keep progressing the way you are,you will soon be looking at breaking the 3:30 barrier,well done.

Amsterdam is looking a little less likely for me now.Im holding off til after my holiday to Florida to book up.Ive been keeping an eye on flight prices,they have jumped quite a bit in the last week or so.Dublin might be the better option,cheap flights and also gives me an extra couple of weeks training as my training at the moment is start stop due to work and lack of motivation

Good luck to all running Stockholm,Meadower in Edinburgh and Danniir and running rodent at Comrades.
