OH you still deep down south near the tropics.

SM6 well done on the 8 with the park run on Saturday and nice 18 miles yesterday 55 for the week nice running.

NN great weekends running with and great weeks total backed up with a great 20 today nice work for the 74 for the week

SC Nice recovery and great stats for the week

MG1 Nice easy run and with all the flying about its still a nice weeks total.

Teknik good running with the club and easy today and another near 60 miles banked

Tri sounds like you have a plan to run a faster marathon, you can't run a fast one on just slow miles, you need tempo runs and intervals of some sort.

Gaz well done on the run and 30 for the week

Joe well done on the 100 miles for the week but looking back over your marathons your PB was a good few years ago. I know your after the 100 marathons but you have fallen in to that and they all just look the same sorry. You said that you expect the sub 3 hour marathon to happen if you just keep focused, think you would need to totally change how you run as trying to run sub 3 hours is still a hell of a lot harder than running 100 marathons.

Enjoyed the trip yesterday even if it turned out to be a long day, some great running by the group of guys who went down with the fastest been 25:58. Nice 1km swim this morning and did 20 minutes on the turbo this afternoon. Two runs planned for tomorrow

SM6 Sounds like the pool was full of children and older people Think every pool should have a lane to swim laps

SC Great MLR hope you can get out for your long run

NN Lol it was after a disco in the rugby club, I remember it it was very bad weather thick snow. Nice 9 miles with strides 1.17 is going at a good speed

MG1 fantastic 20 banked not nice here with the black ice, took Buddy for a walk at 7am and he was like Bambi. So to go and do 20 in it is some going also great that it felt good and you feel strong.

Teknik great 8 miles with 6 fast up hill, good running mate

Well the Parkrun was called off due to all the Black ice so I took Buddy up to the forest and did an easy 4 miles, saved the legs a little for tomorrow Keep safe out there peeps.

SC Nice MLR last night mate

Zippy nice weekend of running hope the achilles is ok.

SM6 Hope the DOMS wear off soon mate and you can get the planned runs in

Teknik glad everything at home is ok Thats a nice interval session I remember a few years ago doing something along them lines and how amazed I was at how fast you can go if your willing to up the pace week on week. Well worth the effort

Fiona great interval session and happy that the ankle is ok bet your busting to get out on the new bike

Sub80HM I managed 1:19:58 in my build up for the London marathon last year. It was at the end of March off 230 miles in Jan, 280 miles in Feb and 280 miles in March. I dropped my milage fro 70 miles a week to 59 the week of the Half Marathon. My Parkruns where done between 18:20 and 18:40 at the time due to the weekly milage and my age which was 52. If I was going just for the Half Marathon as an "A" race I would of tapered more the week before. Hope this helps.

MG1  Did 5 nights core work last year so following the same format 9pm mat out roller out and start up to 460 sit ups last night  think the swimming has helped with this throughout the year as my milage in the pool is up on last year. You getting some good Yorkshire weather in your 7 mile run well done mate and keep at it

OH enjoy your swim in the pool

GazM Nice running but try and do some strides during the base building as this will help keep leg turn over good for later on

70x25m front crawl this morning out later for a MLR on the trails
