"Things I need to work on: running slower so I can add on the miles and cutting down on the red wine"

Lets make sure the knee holds out, we have 4 months why not plan at the start to stay at 10's

Red wine reduction can if necessary be proven to have a detrimental effect on distance  

Vanessa I will PM you tomorrow hopefuly with a few idea and suggestions which you are free to ignore completely,

I get the youngsters.......


Quoted from Vanessa....... who we will have to find a proper forum name for  


I am 45 years old and just got into running this year. I'm quite fit and before falling in love with running was a walker/trekker. This year trekked to Everest Base Camp, completed 12 of the Welsh 3000s and walked London to Brighton to raise money for the local hospice.

I'm a mum of 3 working 30 hours a week as a Teaching Assistant in foundation (4&5 year olds) so my job is quite active.

I am happy to run in any weather (although ice scares me due to injury potential) and am very determined once I set myself a goal.

I've got confirmed entry to MK Half next March and Milton Keynes Marathon next May (again supporting the hospice) and I want to give it my best shot. I'm just back to running after 2 weeks off after slipping while running and twisting my knee so I need to up my game again.

My PBs are:

5K 28:09 and 10K 1:01:17

My hope is to complete the Marathon in under 5 hours.

My usual training is Mon - Body Pump, Tues - run 30 mins, Weds- run 30 mins, Thurs - Body pump, Friday - run 30 mins, Sat - LSR (longest 8.5 m before my knee injusry so I may need to build back up), Sun - rest.
