Nice and steady recovery miles Gul.

Good post Minni regarding the protein. I think when you get actual meals and what they are worth in gram intake it makes more sense.

G-Dawg & Wool, we are all different shapes (& sizes) but all have a common goal.
G-Dawg, you have a good half marathon time and getting close to sub 3.15 is certainly achievable

I'm a bit of a short ar$e and about 5 ft 6, but seem to be around 60 - 61kg most of the time. Then when mara training this usually drops to 58.5 - 59 kg.

Slokey Joe, how do you fit all that biking & swinming in? I think a new post for everyone to add onto is in order...

Good pace in your lunchtime 6 mile G-Dawg, particularly after your 15 miler yesterday.

I like the look of that 15/15/15 RFJ

GE - at least you got out and got some time on feet

Nice little 8 mile progressive run tonight (inspired by the purple one). Splits looked like this 8.12, 7.53, 7.21, 6.58, 6.50, 6.52, 6.44, 6.26. Then a half mile warm down. Got my 410 set to average pace so was hard to tell what pace I was actually running at. So a good test too of running to feel.

CD, thanks for the reply. I think you have a good point about even pacing. Last year in manchester I think I went out too easy in the first few miles. Then was playing catch up. Got halfway in 1.30.14 & 20 miles in 2.18.32, but then from 22 miles I crashed & burned just getting under 3.15 in the end. It can be a fine line between a sh1t or bust moment. I like the idea of going easy for the first mile but be up to pace by the first mile marker. The first mile ALWAYS feels so easy with the tapering/carb loading and adrenaline you are all fired up!

Hi Rich, good hill reps the other night and hope the flu departs soon. My week's training looks very similar to yours with a 14 miler planned on Saturday. I'm on a cut back week this week and did my first 20 miler last Saturday and was lucky to have the company of a sub 2.45 runner. I too have a young family (albeit slightly older 8 &10) and often find myself going out late after they've gone to bed. Monday night I didn't get out till 9.30pm.

Question for Cheerful Dave (hello, nice gag about get rich quick). What are your thoughts on negative splits and how to pace the first half. I was hoping to go for sub 3 and wondered what pace to do the first few miles? I'm also doing Manchester too. Thanks

Well paced progressive run Gul, especially those 6.3x miles.

I like your phased approach to dry January Lorenzo. Does that men if you miss a day you can do 40 hours dry and 8 hours wet? Well you have banked that time.

Good choice of crisps SJ, however I'm more of a Roast Beef flavour. So if you buy a multipack you can always send the surplus packets in my direction.

Anyone tried salt & vinegar peanuts? New to me till the other day.

Jools, would Ibruprofen work with the swelling?

Good 12miler PMJ. Always satisfying to work harder in the last half on fatigued legs.

6 miles @ 8.18 pace last night (cut back week)

GE - Well doen on the dry January, I'm sure with the consistant mileage the extra punds will drop off. Technically I'm not doing a 100% dry January, but am only having a couple of beers on a Saturday night. Subsequently I have now got a “pint of Vimto” addiction.

Jools - I think eclairs are okay for marathon training, but only if they are made of Running Choux pastry.

I'll get my coat...

Plod - Not doing London, but sounds a good set up. Maybe you could contact some of the Charities as I think a lot of last minute entries are Charity places, so some people will need accommodation.

G-Dawg, the last time I hid behind the sofa was when Dr Who was on the telly in the late 70's, think it was the Cybermen that did it.

I like the fact salted crisps are being recommended on here, what about cheese n onion and maybe washed down with a beer?

On the subject of cramping, I used to get it a lot in my calves in marathons, then started doing MP miles in the longer runs and it sorted that out.

Nice 1k reps RFJ

MsE, I misread that as Gin being excellent to stretch you out - if only.

Good speed reps there SJ

Did a 2 mile warm up (literally) last night, then 10 x 200m hill reps with a turn and jog back down. Still no snow where we are yet.

MsE - Fingers crossed the MRI shows no bad damage and you're back out running soon.

Some good sessions Gul. Yes Martin is doing fine and training for London.

Bike-IT - great 20 miler and nice weekly mileage off 4 runs.

Good early run Golden - ouch with the shower stomach!

Nice early doors 12 miler Jools.

FINgers, I get cramp in my toes and it makes my two boys go into fits of laughter when I roll on the ground in agony! When did you last have a massage? It good be you need to have a good session.

6 miles last night with 3 @ MP. Didn't get out til 9.30pm which made it a bit more difficult, but didn't want to miss that session.
