I am only popping in here to keep Ram company

As ever, sterling stuff from the Andrews machine.

10 tonite for me - went out in a blizzard and come home on a beautiful clear starfilled night, road lit up by the moon, on top of the mountain - could see for miles and miles across the Cheshire planes. Twas luvverly.

This thread is mental.

Unlucky Rach - Hope the op goes good. my shoulder is now approaching totally fooked. Just hoping I can live with it for another 12 weeks and take the op after London,

I did my 5 recovery this am thankfully, to back up yesterdays 13 which is week one of the 12 week plan. One week early I know but will no doubt need that week at some point.

Enjoy tomorrows run Andrews - will be fun.

My hair is 80's funk afro.

+1 for Madbee - Its the last mp session that will give you the best guide, and you will be more tuned in to what that pace needs to look like by the time it comes round. I also read it was half  x 2  + 12. which is accurate for me

Sister - Get a race booked - 10 miles or half will be fine - pick a good course that will give you a good time and be honest with how it went. Refer to the Westy links re pace guides. I also try to get a final race in a bit closer to A race day - even if only a 10k to confirm/reinforce where I am at.

Heavy week that Tiny - I would swap the LT session with the recovery - do it as best you can on Thursday AM and knock a few of the GA s off ie 8 with 5 at LT. Whatever you choose don't over do it.

I fancy I would have had a shot at 2.59 -2.49 had I not had an illness 6 weeks out. Fergs - back yourself - you can do it.

First LSR for me today hilly 16 odd in 2.06. Bizarrely felt best between 11 and 15.

Decided London as A race, thanks for the advice all.
You guys can get to see what an intensive 12 week Mara programme does to an injury prone , overweight, heavy drinking middle aged runner

Soddin hell - this thread is ridiculous!

RE - Hope the swelling/bruising is going down and its nothing too serious.

Sister - good running.

I got 2.54 of the upto 70 plan but the training was not ideal and had an illness a few weeks out. Am wondering if a shorter more intense plan may suit me, although all the evidence points to Edi as I am a glory hunter not a sightseer - when I ran Paris I saw absolutely none of anything I ran by. So I may target London but be realistic with the training  and if its too much, throttle back and go for edi. I do not intend to go over 70 miles at all this campaign.

The one early June looks better (PB Wise) - 200m drop in elevation apparently. Strange they have 2 maras in same place in close succession
