I feel like I'm in limbo at the moment. No planed marathons for the foreseeable future. Looking for an autumn half marathon PB before I consider another marathon attempt!

Any thoughts?

Badbark - good luck dude - say no more, as you have trained SOOO hard and you have the right focused mentality. As they say  - Don't be shit!

Go Badbark!!!!!

Gul - sorry to hear of your bad experience in your marathon. I know you put in lots of effort in all the training you did. I would echo PMJ's post and just keep going and get another one booked for the Autumn. you already have all that training in the bank, so it shouldn't be too much of an ask to get back on track for the Autumn. Leicester do a marathon in October BTW.

Great achievement Poacher, and a good report too. I guess it just touches on the wave of emotions you went through too. I think my body would give up after 26.3 miles, so big respect for going twice the distance in one go! Your feet look in good shape, although your big toe looks very big!

Best of luck Poacher and enjoy the experience if you can!

Good to see some tasty doubles from GM & PMJ and good times too!

Gul - At least you are making it to the start line. If I was in your shoes I would look at how you are going to pace it particularly in the early miles. I guess it depends of how you want to run it. In the past with the exception of Manchester this year, I have found a negative split works best for me, but this is a personal thing. Best of luck and remember all that great training you have done leading up to this.

Badbark - You are certainly finding good form at the right time. That Newry marathon sound good starting before the half then being able to pick them off. Good luck in the 100k RACE!

Some shiny shoes there GM - nice and bright. I'm in need of new shoes and will have to take the plunge soon down my local shop. The brighter the better!

Busy week running for me this week with 11.5 @ 7.25 pace on Monday night, 1 mile reps Tuesday (not helped by the previous night long run), 6 miles Wednesday @ 6.44 pace and 5 miles last night with 3miles @ 6.19, 6.12 & 6.18 pace. I was feeling the effect of the week last night not helped by a long day at work then watching my lad play a footie match followed by chips & impromtu Lads v Dads in the park. Didn't get out till 9.30pm, but better than sitting on the sofa!

Good luck to all the weekend runners!

Great 5k PB Menn - what a crazy pre-race build up!

Awesome marathon PB Race Jase - can't get my head round that kind of pace you ran for 26.2!

Badbark - enjoy the fitness and the wine. Your Newry marathon time was brilliant. Shows the fitness levels are very high.

AR - sounds a very final decision regarding the running. Why not enjoy the summer without running and see how the Achilles is in the Autumn?

Well done Marrows in the heat - I wouldn't fancy running 26.2 in that heat! Good report too.

Sending some good healing vibes to those with stiffness anywhere in their bodies AR, MsE, Gul, moof, Lorenzo to name a few.

Nice seaside 5k GM

Good luck in your 5k Menn. Shame about the Chester half, but wise experienced decision to hold back. Good training run though!

Sounding more promising Gul, fingers crossed for you.

Bit of a weird 8 mile race last Sunday. A hilly first 3 miles which I paced ok at 6.40, but got to the killer hill at 4 miles and it floored me - 7.26 pace. After a brief walk (seemed the same pace as my running) and I was ok again. Last 3 miles were 6.20, 6.22 & 6.24. I can think of lots of excuses (the heat, the hills, quite a few late nights the week before, spending all day cleaning on Saturday and having a party at ours the night before with a few Panda Pops) that probably didn't yield a good race. But put it more down to a mental attitude on the day and not having my race head on.

Good luck to any racers this weekend.

Abbers - looking good on the speed front, just remember it takes a bit of time. Mixing up the sessions is good too, so you get  bit of variation of pace.

Gul - never say never on the marathon start, but I guess you know what your body is telling you on this occasion. Just remember to take your running shoes with you to Bluewater, as that sounds like a marathon shopping trip!

Badbark - that's a lot of fruit & veg in your diet, just as well you run so much to counter balance it

PMJ - East MIds Grandprix is good to do, but I've only done a few as the logistics and journey times mixed in with family commitments makes it more difficult these days.

Sounds an interesting route Poacher along the Belgian coast. I'm guessing it is fairly flat?

Welcome to the thread Crash Hamster, you are in the right place for sub 3.15 advice.

Not clear if I can do my League 8 mile race on Sunday as junior KR has a football tournement and a 9am meet, so will have to see if I can sort out a lift.

Good luck to anyone that is racing this weekend, looks like the weather will be warm again.

Badbark - you are still mad! I don't know how you can keep going. Did you have any music when you were doing the 70 laps?

Gul - Like Lorenzo said, I think a trip to the Physio will help iron out any issues you have.

PMJ - we have a good selection of race distances locally. Some of which there are only one distance in the county like 7 miles and this Sunday I am doing an 8 miler.

Some great results and running over the weekend.

Minni - a lot of racing in 10 days! Hope the physio conditioning works with ther hip

Jools, a sub 40 with the early stages of flu is a good'un.

SJ - 112 miles of hilly riding!

PMJ - so close to sub 30. I ran that exact time in 2012 not knowing how close I was and gutted as I haven't been close to it since.... I'm sure with the extra training you'll be dipping into the 29.xx soon.
