Don't worry Reg, I'll be all 'serious runner' for Manchester, but for London I plan on being as ridiculous as possible. Plus, no-one would give me charity money for running 'another marathon.'

My time to beat is only 4:27 - I'm pretty confident that won't be a problem, I just have to hope no super speedy lady turns up as some other tv character.

I will be Bananaman What I'm really hoping, is to find someone dressed as a banana to chase down the mall.

John - I'd say it's better to get it checked out now. The longer you leave it, the worst it gets, the longer it'll take to fix.

Pleased to see you getting back into it Scott!

Amazing Joe! We might get to start together at London then - I'll be chasing the fastest TV character, dressed as Bananaman. What time do you need to beat?

Haha, Muddy, your response sums up my thoughts on the standard of running from this thread last weekend too.

Thanks for all the water info. Makes me feel better - I really used to feel I needed 1 litre + on a long run, and drank it all. Maybe the body becomes used to having less water with experience? I will stick with my 330ml bottle for now, it straps on the hand so I can forget about it.

I had ambitions of doing a S&C session once a week at the beginning of my plan.. haven't done one for a few weeks now, but I do feel better/stronger when I do. Going to physio today for a check up after being diagnosed with RSI in my wrist. Terrified I'm going to be yelled at for also not managing to do the million shoulder stretches a day I was told to..

Great MP after a big night out/in Spoons! Also good 21Ms for Tom and Macca.

Pleased you're feeling better Millsy.

20m in the bag for me today, nice to do a long run with no hills or mud. It was just a regular 20M, no MP, but ran a bog negative split and finished strong. Always feels good to get a 20 done. I'm developing a sore heel though.. better not be PF. I'll be rolling overtime this week to try fix it.

I also trialled carrying less water today - I've moved from a camelbak rucksack to a 330ml Nathan bottle. Feels much nicer, and I figure I can always fill it up somewhere if I get thirsty. What do you all do?

Gee NE, rough luck. Hope the next few runs are drama-free.

Nice LT Spoons, I understand the enjoying bit. I had 10 with 6 @ LT tonight and enjoyed it. Far better than last week, maintained then increased the pace. Only blip was the final lurch up the 4km hill, but then smashed it back down (for me). I'm seeing good results from P&D - my 5M time on a Tuesday has come down by 7mins, despite now doing a 4.5M 'warmup' before the session.

I found tonight warm and I'm in the North.. maybe I'm just becoming a true northerner. I'll be wearing short shorts soon.

Don't worry TrevO, I'm in the slower camp as well; we're just as legit as the Toms.

What are you thinking for the new target Tommo?

Fantastic HM's Madbee, Ramjet, ML, Muddy (forgive me if I forget any other names, it's a page back now!)

OH and I eat lower carbs as a general rule. He lost loads of weight sticking to the diet in the first year or so, I couldn't when Ironman training (kept bonking, couldn't get enough calories), but am back to eating less carbs again now. I have porridge for breakfast but otherwise mostly low to no carbs for other meals. It works for us, and if nothing else we eat far more veg than before. Am actively trying to drop a few kg for this marathon, going ok so far but it's about now that I usually crack and buy a bag or 5 of sweets or crisps.  

18M LSR for me this week, along a very muddy thames path. Sucked the energy from my legs so I found it quite hard. You can see on strava the only bits of the path that weren't muddy by increase in pace by about 1/2mins per mile. Followed by 8 miles Sunday, supposed to be less and recovery but was a catch-up with a friend and was distracted. Rest today, legs very tired.

John, that sounds awful. When it gets to that extreme I remember why I like British weather so much, thank you! I'm a secret Tasmanian, most people don't realise because I've adopted the smooth tones of a British accent over the years.

Well done getting up at 4 this morning Tom, I suffered enough on my walk to work.

Rest day for me too - Legs are tired after my 'LT' last night. I was a little over excited trying to keep up with the fast guys, so instead of what should have been 8:15ish I had 7:21, 7:56, 8:08, then 8:44 and 9:58 when a stitch struck. Oops.
