Forgot to say went to the doctors and had more tests which has resulted in the blue inhaler and also Montelukast tablets which I have to take for a month, these are to stop the cough and should take between 7 and 10 days to start to work fully. So just in time for the VLM  Taper plan here is tomorrow 6 miles with a warm up Parkrun and cool down, 10 miles on Sunday with MP in of 8 miles. Monday rest day and short swim, Tuesday 6 miles, Wednesday  short swim 5 miles with strides, Thursday 4 with Strides. Friday rest and travel. Saturday rest expo and tea and cake with NN Sunday marathon.

Everyone will find this interesting and I highly recommend it, MG1 you will find it especially interesting. Last week there was a webinar that I was registered for with Pete Pfizinger it lasted just over one hour. This was recorded and everyone was sent a link to the recording if you follow the link below you should be able to listen to the show. It is a great listen and well worth taking the time out to listen to, both his books are the backbone of all my training and have been for a number of years. here is the link enjoy.

MG7 nice running sounds like a great trip to the lakes

Tric well done on the run after the skiing trip

NN nice running in-between shifts, looking forward to seeing how you go in the 5k

Joe 3:04 after running a few marathons in a week is great running, but you are going for the bling and not the time you can't race marathons and do more than one every three months even the pro's don't do that. I think your cashing cheques your body will pay for with injury later, sorry but thats how I see it. I can't walk for a day after a hard marathon effort ,you still have to race one properly, but you know that and don't need me to point it out but look at the guys on the sub 3 forum and they go balls out and there is some fantastic runners who just train for one or two marathons a year, because they race them.

Teknik great treadmill session watching the football and great stats for the week.

SM6 well done with the gym running and session, sounds like a good group and working together you will all improve.

OH sounds like a great run but a long one time wise, hope the feet kept dry but doubt that, hope the legs are feeling good.

Rest day and first day of taper so just 72x25m front crawl. nice 6 miles easy tomorrow, now casting an eye towards London and the weather could be a hot one so will be running in the winter gear this week, gloves, hat,  three tops and rain top

Mace look out for me in the red area 

Teknik nice running if your bouncing along With regards to the hokas trainers, yes they are light and yes they have tons of cushioning if I hadn't of spent £130 on a pair they would of found them selfs in the bin by now. There is no response when you boot the boot down, took me forever to get used to them and falling apart on the trails. If your big in size they may help protect the joints but think I got sucked in to all the hype with a few others. Will be using adidas adizero Boston Boost in London will start to break them in this weekend, love the adidas adizero boost's that i do half's, 10k's and 5k's in.

SM6 Good Luck with the new shoes and looking forward to race report

SC nice interval session and nice running last night

Well 70x25m front crawl this morning, starting to feel my self again and 6 miles on the trails this afternoon with strides, will give the Parkrun a blast tomorrow.
