Awesome time and PB G-Dawg, enjoy the refuelling!

Brilliant time too MsE on your first race since London a good pointer for a 2017 spring mara.

Shame your park run didn't go to plan GM, sounds a tough final 2k. A good time nonetheless.

16 steady late miles on Friday night @ 7.57 pace. A good day out at old Trafford yesterday apart from the result. It was good to see the most expensive player in the world score his first goal. Went down well with the locals. 10 miles @ 6.53 pace tonight for 51 for the week

Tonight's my window of opportunity Gul for a reasonable long one (15miles+). I thought most runners were quite sociable - you must have looked dodgy

Autumn HM is the Leicester half at the end of October Abbers.

 A great time and position Jools - looking good

Good luck for the marathoners this Sunday - go get em!

Great stats there G-Dawg. It looks like you have been consistently consistent. Best of luck for Sunday.

I presume you didn't take any Alpen to Switzerland 0053? I'm impressed you got the frozen meat through baggage control even through pretty random. What was the story behind that?

Beach BBQ sounds great GM. Beach anything sounds great.

Nice tempo run Abbers

Looks like a good block of training & reps Abbers.Only got an Autumn half mara planned.

I bet you could have squeezed in a run before that 5.19am train Gul Hope the canal was suitable in Leeds fro your running, a good way in an unfamiliar place as you can;t get lost.

A good lunchtime run / splits GM, good luck with your Parkrun.

Bad news on the bike G-Dawg, have you put a picture out on social media? Good question about the gels etc in hand luggage, I would check with your airline.

Just had a 6 day consecutive running streak, which feels weird. Just trying to get them in while I can. Might have to do my long run late on Friday night as I'm out all day at Old Trafford on Saturday.

A good session the treadie Abbers

Hope the MRI goes to plan GM - a good Parkrun thime nonetheless.

Looks like you're still squeezing in the training Lorenzo.  I like the sound of your end of run plan.

Must be a nightmare trying to avoid all those household colds MsE - nice 12 miler there and faster miles within. Still looking good.

Excellent Hull time 0053! And brilliant unexpected time too Poacher - maybe you could have got sub 3.15 without the chit chat!

A good looking 10 miler there Gul - all coming together nicely.

Went out for 15 miles on Saturday night taking in 11 miles of the Leicester Half marathon at a decent av pace of 7.23m/m. And 8 miles last night for a 50 mile week - my longest in 5 months. Even managed to haul my backside out this morning for a 5 miler to start the week off. Trying to fit them in while I can as Mrs KR is now doing a night school twice a week.

That's some dedication Gul to be out at 3am and weekly mileage!

Defo not mara training MsE, but looking at longer weekend runs.

Shame you had a disappointing GNR 0053. Still a stella time. Well done to 00 jnr!

Hopefully the endurance will get you through Poacher.

Birch a few of my friends from my athletics days back in the 80's occasionally post scanned in paper results from back in the day. Regarding highest mileage, it was last year training for the 24 hour event. I did 102 miles in the week which included a 24 hour period from Friday night - Saturday night where I did 60 miles 15.5 / 26.5 / 18. Leading up to that I'd done a 90 and 80 mile week. Good luck for the XC season, I bet you're waiting for a good bit of rain & mud!

That was a big week Leslie! I think you get into a cycle of long days, then run & sleep. When you look back you wonder how the heck you did it!I think you are right about the routine though MsE.

Hi Lit welcome back - a good goal for Chester! Thanks for posting the link too. I'm at 501. Interestingly there is no gun time on there, maybe they thought the 3.30.xx gun time was an error (having missing the start by 27 minutes!).

10 mile progressive run last night with a 7.59 first mile and 6.18 last mile.

 A good run there MsE, those MP miles can feel tough when you are running solo.

A few miles in the saddle Lorenzo not surprised it felt tougher running today

Good paced 14 miles G dawg

Nice wava and parkrun time Gul

Had a good and wet 15 mile run this morning @7.51 pace. Nice not to have the pressure to MP at the end. Think I'll do the Leicester half in October as a goal to aim for.

P&D autumn marathon 2016

There's no stopping you Rob - you're still young.

I set my marathon PB this year of 3.03.03 (using P&D up to 70 miles) at the age of 47.

Agree with 15West, consistent training is a factor.

Hello again. Had a quick read back and good to see the thread is going strong with some great performances as usual. Been keeping the legs turning over (just) with an average 25 - 35 miles a week and longest runs of about 12 miles which seems a bit strange. To be honest it's been so busy at home & work it's been a struggle getting out all the time. I did a 67.52 10 miler last Sunday, so just about hanging on. I was toying with an Autumn half, but will see what this month brings training wise.

Looks like you're getting some good mileage in Gul and a tasty Parkrun time too.

Impressive mara paced half marathon Jools after a 100 mile week!

Good luck for all doing the GNR this Sunday

I bet you're glad you've handed that dissertation in MsE a weight off your mind!

A bit jealous reading all the high mileage & Autumn marathon plans!

Gretat reports Gul & Poacher. Sounds a very testing marathon. Gul I've sure a more flatter course would yield a bigger PB and especially with a bigger field so not so much solo running. I think with course like this you can be very satisfied with a time like that and especially a PB too. Poacher, next time you should have a first aid kit with you too - just in case Nice photo on you both together.
