Overdone it?

Go for the piss up Mace.  My position in the top flight is looking about as tenuous as West Brom's.

PP - you were set up.  Did they flutter their eyelashes and tell you they'd always wanted to have their photo taken with a real London Marathon pacer.

Tommy Zoom!  I have to admit that for me Tommy2D brings to mind a rather flat superhero. Good report though and another effortless PB.  I'm itching for a race - might pop up to Cov to do the quick parkr this weekend if my hips are feeling ok.

Sub 3 marathon-long term training advice

i thought I was in good shape for VLM but after 13.1 in my goal 1:28 it all went wrong stomach cramp, itb pain, general lack of energy and I had a really hard last half in 1:52- very disappointed

To me, these don't seem to be issues to do with your training.  Perhaps look at nutrition and physio work.

By the way  - I suffered a similar crash during Brighton marathon, but I put this down to inadequate training due to injury.  My plan to avoid that next time is to sort on my technique and form and also try to get in a nice base mileage towards the end of the year.

Before anyone asks, I don't think First Katie (or First Darryll) should count as a medal in the top trumps table.

Loved the report Lit - one of the things I enjoyed about the marathon was the ability to have a conversation with people along the way.  You can't really do that in a half or quicker. Fantastically even splits thought Lit (apart from the generally quickening trend). Even when I was running with the pacers, mine were all over the place.

By the way Lit, are you on school holidays or is this a typical day in the life of an academic?

More filler....

I did 6 miles last night.  Right hip feels fine but my left hill developed a bit of an ache.

Also tried a few things to increase cadence and reduce overstriding - calves felt a bit stiff this morning (but I think this is normal as my weight will shift forward slightly).

Nice one marrows. You make it sound too easy. I suppose that is the benefit of proper training.  Well done.

It also has a long history of salt mining.
