P&D autumn marathon 2016

Glad you enjoyed it HA77 - I guess we just take it for granted, never really lived that far away for very long. Did you get on the zip wire and the inland surf centre thingy? Ive not been to either yet

Hi Gang, been on holiday so got a long read back but,

Congrats to Spoons and Alan B - great running by both. 

Belated congrats to macca, Millsy, Ollie, Muddy, Westy and Reg for great races. I hope ive not missed anyone.

Nothing to report here, except no matter how much I try I cant seem to get much quicker than mara pace, which is annoying me.

Up North, your coming to my neck of the woods HA77. You stopping on the west coast then? I would strongly advise against swimming off the north unless all of your jabs are up to date.

Welcome back tom!

Great report John - sounded ruff!

Hope the niggles subside Westy and Reg. 

BR - Glad your ok - Can I request that you and Reg stop doing 12 activities a day as you are both clogging my Strava activity feed.

Enjoy gods country HA77 - You going to Surf Snowdonia whilst you are up here?

Good luck JohnOZ! And Westy for tomorrow and anyone else racing.

Over imbibed last night on SB and Beer (I know - schoolboy error) and todays parkrun was wholly unpleasant as a consequence. Just about matched my PB run in mara training. I will not be either drinking before a parkrun or running after drinking in future.

Welcome Bluemoon - Great target. RSR has given you the paramaters bang on, what have you been running in the past? Can you give us some more backstory? It wont hchange your paces, but we are a bunch of nosy so and sos.

Afternoon, I whinge and drink all the time.

Tom - great news

Re 18 week schedule - I find it too long - 12 week schedule - I found it too short. Both did the Job. Problem is with the 12 week schedule if you pick up a niggle there is no room for maneuver. If I do London I will pick up the 18 week prog in January ie week 16.

Nice to see we have our first thread romance going on..

Went for a run with the local club last night - they do a lot of faster end stuff than Im used to. 

*Fergs - good point regarding the weight loss before programme. I lost 4-6 pounds during my 12 week plan and totally bombed out on two of the 20+ runs. I reckon getting nutrition and weight right during the training is the biggest and easist win for most come race day

Ive had a go at Pilates twice now, and just cant seem to stick to it. I am trying to do a bit more stretching and am probably going to go circuit training once a week.

Drills If this works this is what they are.

I used to have a beanie with headphones built in, that was ok to be fair.

Happy birthday Scott,

Dont do any podcasts or anything in my ears when running. Used to listen to music but am used to my own daft internal ramblings nowadays.

No core work/stretching or supplements. I think I have a quite easy win if I can get my arse into gear and do something.

I am bored of mesocycle 5 after less than two weeks...
