lol  Palace isn't exactly short of hills though Steve!

Tom - bugger, I'll have to make it myself then. It'll be like one of those disaster cakes they show on GBBO A Second Slice

Will get down to the track in the new year I'm sure.

You're right about Ruth. I think she likes to give everyone Christmas off before tearing their diets to pieces. She's probably already had her spy cams out and is probably tutting at the footage as we speak

"comparative fabulosity" - nice phrase! Would make a good album or book title

Good to hear your foot problems are improving. Gosh that surgery date is very close indeed. Hope it all goes well!

lol - yes, priorities indeed

I'm not releasing it yet. I'm saving it for when he wins next year and I can extort the maximum amount of cash (or Asics gear, either will do).

Amy - re. emails, at the bottom of the page underneath where it says Terms and Conditions there's a check box. It should automatically be ticked though.

Note that you get an email when there is a post since the last time you looked. After that you need to visit the thread before you will be notified of new activity again.

The emails often also go to spam so it's worth adding the address to your trusted emails or contact list.

He is. He told me. I have a recording to prove it.

Great to see the schedule up Amy!

Looks excellent and yes, rest day on day one, how cool is that?!

Day two looks a little tougher though. Better take a sick bag with you!

Malc I can definitely see you taking a bunch of 9 year old girls to all the cool kid concerts and singing along

 Trying desperately hard to ignore the fact that that sounds very dodgy I will simply say that you clearly haven't heard me sing (or rap)!

Amy, haters are gonna hate. 

Aha you quote the great philosopher Taylor Swift I see!

(oh yeah, I'm down with the kids...

or maybe I have a 9 year old daughter who plays it over and over and over and....) 

Agree Gingermagic, nicely put! And bonus points for maintaining the musical theme, though I'm disappointed you didn't quote a famous rapper, maybe next time eh?

Malcs But I do love you all!!!

Are you drinking already? Part of me really hopes so!

Photos - click the icon to the left of the quote icon (really don't know what it is - some sort of screen?). Anyway, second from the right.

Then go to the Your Computer tab and follow from there. Note that there are image size restrictions. Best to stick with jpegs as they have decent compression

Add me to the not offended camp Amy! 

What's this about two jobs? What is it you do that keeps you up to those ungodly hours?! 

Totally agree with bramster, sleep is pretty important when marathon training so try and get as much in as you can. 

Steve mentioned that your plan is very similar to Tom's but with reduced mileage and lower paces. 

I would imagine it's vey similar to mine last year as Steve likes to stick with a Tue/Thu speed and Wed recovery format. That really suited me well and the best thing is you start and end the week with rest days - result!

Don't worry about writing War and Peace on here. It's alot of work I know so please don't think you have to spend ages on it.

Just post up the first part of the plan so everyone can get on board with you and then let them know how you get on with the sessions. We all have faith in you and are 100% behind you (1000% in X Factor maths ) so let's get the rocket firing!
