P&D Spring Marathon Thread 2015

Posted: Yesterday at 07:45
That's a pretty good session North! Enjoy your weekend running.

Scott - yum!

MsE, that's what I love about P&D - so much of the running is lovely and easy I was going to do the recovery meso before starting in earnest, but I'm up over that mileage already by myself so not much point...

I haven't put on any weight post marathon, but then I rarely lose any while training so it balances out. Scott and Fergster, you're lithe young things anyway, it'll drop off when you get training again.

Good weeks running here - tempo on Tuesday, couple of 7-9 milers and I'm off for a proper long-un today - going to do an 18 mile trail run culminating in fish and chips!

But did you get your bike back Westy??

Things you want to say but can't

No you didn't know I felt that way. Because you and everyone else do not bother to check how I feel about stuff. And yes I'm probably being childish but I'm fed up of being disregarded.

Yeah seriously Hoops, take all the easy running you can get!

Westy... Bugger... Someone did that to me once, I left a polite note on my bike saying 'can I have my bike back please' and lay in wait for them in a nearby cafe. They eventually appeared and looked very sheepish as they unlocked it.

Cheers Westy.  That's what I had, roughly.  Clearly this means my 10K time needs some smashing.  Not that I am planning any 10Ks so far.  Snake Lane 10m, Coniston 14 are planned, will probably stick a half in there somewhere.  Anyone got any recommendations for a good fast one in the North?

andrews, is it you with a nifty time function on your calculator?  I'm still having issues determining actual correct paces.  I know this is partly because Pfitz writes for the faster runner really, but the LT pace quoted by McMillan is very close to my 10K pace, which seems wrong.  I guess that's probably because my 10K time is a bit naff, but if anyone can tell me what my paces really ought to be I'd be very happy!  Current 'best' time is 5K in 21:15, and target MP is 3:20 if anyone fancies doing the work for me

Poor sheep.  

I tend to ignore the races and do the ones I feel like doing.  Depending on length I'll either swap out the long run (eg for a half), or do it the day after.  I think there is some benefit to doing a race then a long run the next day, but as lit says, I don't think the races are an absolutely vital part of the plan.

Overdone it?

Kielder's the one to do if you want variable distance  Just hop on a bus at whichever point you fancy!

Good early morning running, mace.  A third of a mile before 6:35 is definitely worth more than after, so you almost matched lit

Good session there Lou.  I always find it easier to move quicker in company!  

Muddy, are the sore bits from running or playden?

Enjoyable 9.something miles with the club last night, including a killer hill. I am going to start doing some hill reps there I think.

Wow, I bet that was interesting andrews.  I can't imagine a frightened ram would be coming quietly...  

Overdone it?

Enjoy that non-runner apathy.  I was chatting about marathons to some people I don't know very well at parkrun on Saturday, and on having my latest time reluctantly dragged out of me, a very sweaty oldish man pulled me into a massive and uninvited hug
