Good news you can keep running Speedy, did he recommend for you to be running more on softer ground like trails/towpaths etc?

Good session Malcs with the MP miles. MP can feel tough sometimes in training, but then when you race on the day you'll have 3 weeks of taper and carbo loading & gels to help you on the way, plus the mental race head attached too!

Belated well done Steve on your half marathon time of 1.22. must say you have got some  brilliant times under your belt if that was your 101st best time. But great that it's your best for 5 years. I think that proves that even though as you get older you can still at least achieve good times.

Had a great 10 mile progressive run last night, although turned out not to be totally progressive as I was supposed to hit MP by mile 7. Splits came out at 7.49, 7.40, 7.39, 7.10, 6.33, 6.41, 6.36, 6.33, 6.26, 6.20. Managed to dip under 70 minutes which was good (although not intentional)

Good luck with the Training camp this weekend Tom - Enjoy

G-Dawg great time there considering you were solo too!

You can't beat a bit of quality RFJ.

Gerard - I think it was the yoga that gave you the lurgy! Well done for braving the elements when your mates kopped out.

Good intervals session Lorenzo. Forget the performance. If it is the first one for a while, at least you were out there doing it. It can take a few weeks to get back into that kind of session.

Leslie, will you be going to sleep after your run before your nightshift? Just wondering how it all fits in.

NIce 9 trail miles banked MsE.

Speedy reps the other day from you Tom so soon after your half. I like doing new routes too as I think it breaks up the monotony. I did a 14 miler (av 7.56 pace) last night taking in a new route through a different part of the city I don't normally go down. It helped the run pass a bit more.

That's a good bit of running there MsE and especially off road. Good luck for Sunday.

14 miles in 7.56 av pace tonight. Didn't feel up for it but knew I had to get the midweek miles in. Did a new course which added a bit of interest.

Good track session RFJ

You're packing in some good miles & reps too Birch

Nice 1 mile reps Abbers - a good speed endurance outing.
I did a similar session last night with 4 x 1 mile reps. First one was 6.04 but then my Garmin went blank, so I was going on feel after that - it felt tough so hopefully I kept up the same pace!

GD, the lamb must have relaxed you.

PMJ - I've been a fan of the negative split and have had more success with those. However, I do think that it can pile on the pressure of under cooking it in the first half then being pressured to hit a faster pace in the second. I suppose it might be how you train too and if you are used to running quick at the end of a long run on fatigued legs. But at the end of the day it is more about consistent pacing.

Gul - trust in the good training you have already banked.

SSC, sorry to hear about your tight calf. I had one of those once and the physio advised to ease back into the running. Better to do more smaller runs than to go back into the longer runs.

Bad news on the returning lurgy Rich, you've had a bad run of luck with that and the injury too. Best to get 100% fit as there is no joy pushing yourself marathon training and not getting key sessions & paces.

Running Manchester as a fun run would be a good idea if feasible. I ran a marathon for fun in November and enjoyed it as I had no time pressure and went into it on the back of only done half marathon training. Longest run had only been 16 miles. If you have a bit of an endurance base you should be fine.

Good to see the usual amount of marathon training going on. Sounds like a bad day for you Speedy.

Back from Holiday in Cornwall and enjoyed some good coastal path running.You certainly know what a steep hill is after doing that! Views were fantastic. Managed a 20 miler yesterday back homewith 8 miles at just over MP (6.56 pace). I think the week off and a few beers have caught up with me a bit, but it was a cutback week
