Well, I could certainly tell I'd run 97 miles over the last 9 days (nothing for some: absolutely loads for me!). 31.05 or just inside current HM PB pace, so I guess that counts as a tempo run, albeit 30s slower than last month!

Ooof. I could certainly tell that tonight's race brought up 97 miles over 9 consecutive days. 31.05, so just under current HM PB pace. Rest day and massage tomorrow, thank god!

Ooof, sounds like a tough day, RB.  These things happen, and a much better day will be along soon!

I had the plods yesterday, and could only manage 8.08m/m for my 14 miler.  Pretty knackered after an early start for work, but hopefully last night's better sleep will see a faster result at the Weston Prom Run 5 miler tonight!

It was just me that had the plods yesterday, then... 8.08m/m for my P&D 14 miler.  But the 5am start for work probably didn't help.  Good night's sleep last night so hopefully my tempo run/5M race tonight will go a bit more quickly!

So that's why Charlie ran so fast: he flew!

Excellent news on the bling, Speedy

Bit of an attack of the plods here: 8.45m/m for yesterday's recovery run and 8.09m/m for today's 9 miler.

Gul: yes, there was a body in the Avon.  Probably a suicide from the Suspension Bridge.  Poor guy.

Well done, Speedy.

((MsE))... so sorry to hear that.  Hope cankle is soon a fully functional ankle again soon

Lorenzo: the mind boggles at racing that sort of distance.  Chapeau on the pb.

SEDan: I wouldn't bother tapering for a XC race unless your club are really, really counting on you in terms of scoring.  Just treat it as a tempo run and prioritise the marathon training.

62 miles for me this week, with 18 today.  The only unsettling note was being diverted off my training route on the way home by a policewoman.  Not quite sure what had happened, as I'd run through the closed section an hour earlier.  Haunting local media in an effort to find out...

Well done, Speedy. And glad that your dad and the cats obeyed orders.  I'm guessing it felt father bittersweet.  Looks like the fitness is coming back well given the pace improvement.

14M with 6 x 1M yesterday (rubbish pace, but was definitely working hard, so clearly just unfit ATM).  18M today.  62M for the week, which feels like proper marathon training.  Mild here today, but cold yesterday.

Birch: I think it will depend on how many years she has been running for, in particular half marathons, as she won't be making quite such a big adjustment if she is fairly seasoned at the half.  It will also depend on her mileage.  I was woefully under-trained for my first marathon (probably peaked at 40 mpw) and ran 3.29 when my half time was 1.32 and so I should have been closer to 3.15 than 3.30!  That was 2004 and I then wound up injured, so didn't run a marathon again until 2006...

Wow, ES.  That is seriously impressive.  56M for me this week and nowhere near that pace in anything other than my club session on Tuesday (4M in total) and today's race (3.5M in total)!  Great to see you making such progress.
