OH love the idea of running around to make up .7 miles no OCD there still nice stats and well done on the highest month yet

NN glad your starting to get back at it, the few days of illness won't hurt we are still far enough away from London, your endurance is fantastic just work on getting the leg turn over going again but don't rush it. Hope the planned 21 works out for you great stats for the past three months

MG1 well done on your run, had enough of this weather can't wait for a bit of sun and heat

Swim this morning 74x24m front crawl, the OH was going into Belfast today so got her to drop me off and ran home which was 13.14 miles so did this as 10 miles @ tempo pace and 3 miles @ MP 1:23

Splits came in at: 6:13, 6:20, 6:16, 6:12, 6:24, 6:15, 6:11, 6:19, 6:10, 6:12, 6:40, 6:41, 6:29. Happy with that and had more in the tank  two easy runs tomorrow.

SC nice run yesterday and a nice hilly 20 to take you in to your taper

Gaz well done on banking another 20 

SM6 nice Parkrun  you got a long run tomorrow?

MG1 nice 18 banked in the wind (very windy here) 

Pompey Welcome, with this being your first marathon enjoy it don't worry about time as it will be a PB, you have plenty of time to bank a couple of 20 mile runs before your taper, go easy on the holiday and take care running in the heat if that's where your planning doing your long run. An early start should see you miss most of the heat as for the gels trying them out on training runs is the way to go again go easy on them.

OH well done on the Parkrun today and good luck with the race tomorrow

Joe well done on the first of two for the weekend 

HM4 that's as far as one of my swims 

Warm up and then the Parkrun with Buddy, two water stops and 17:42 banked happy with that after a good solid weeks running and in a very strong wind, 20/22 tomorrow looks like a wet one

SM6 Nice interval session

MG1 Nice 12 miles hope you had a good rest day and enjoy your Long run tomorrow.

SC hope the run and strides went ok

NN it won't hurt you have loads in the bank and in a couple of days time you will bounce back with fully charged batteries 

Teknik don't be to hard on yourself and put that HR thing away and just run mate, give it time 

HM4 both days is better than just the one  

Well 1km swim this morning followed by a trip into town shopping and just over 6 miles on the trails tonight with Buddy in his shoes.  Park run tomorrow.

SC Thats a nice block of training 

NN great MLR only two days after a 20 and another good nice run today, looks like we have loads of cake to eat in London  Jason is running for Wales in an Ultra the week after London so is giving it a miss. Will miss Fiona and Jason at tea in the Park. Buddy has sulked all day but he will be back for the weekend in his racing flats 

Fiona the bike will keep your fitness level up but your ankle played up before London last year so its over a year its been giving you problems Take care and in touch X

Kamosh Yep thats the book second edition, there is a 3rd edition out now but when asked what he missed from the plans it was more strides during easy runs. It's a great book and a very good read even after the fourth time and great just to keep referring back to. 

Mace nice session and don't forget sleep is the best recovery 

Teknik nice joglet, have you stopped the yoga? and core work? and if so would that have an effect on your racing times? it's just you haven't mentioned them sice you had that chest infection.

HM4 any running?

Well just over 8 miles easy in the wind and rain this morning ( full winter gear on again) and 5 easy with strides tonight again in the winter gear........ Swim and 6 miles tomorrow

OH Great photos and looking strong

Trici well done with the easy run, good luck with the next few weeks training and skiing 

MG1 looks like another great core sandwich  it's well worth the effort

MG7 thats a nice mix of training 

SC nice running with the JS group, think the best calculator is the one on Fetch good luck with the MP/intervals

Kamo, Well done on the half marathon, Dublin is a nice marathon, few changes to the route last year and a few more hills. I don't do that many interval sessions but do a lot of hill running to build up leg strength, back this up with tempo runs and a MLR in the middle of the week. Advance Marathon running is a great book with plans for everyone based on the milage you want to run.

Tekkie nice running and nice to get 5 in at MP.

Well todays MLR was 13.1 miles in 1:29:51
