the ones you can catch taste the best..... I have always found putting a mirror on their favourite tracks is the best way, they see haggii (pl) heading towards them and try to turn leaving their offset legs arse about face and tumble down the hill into the hag bag.

Stake up it's 'arris and a good roasting over an open peat fire with some asparagus and artichokes .................. sod the neeps and tatties

it is hellish out there...... be careful especially with your knee,,,, rather miss a session and stay uninjured that drag yourself out feeling crap and hurt yourself


Like you say see how you feel look at the conditions but above all be sensible

nice steady increase Vanessa.....Chinese and wine as  post race nutrition sounds a top recovery  

Was that 4 runs this week?


My 10 mile race tomorrow has been called off because of the weather so it looks like a snowy run along the river for me ,

nope you need to find a comfortable pace, then build the distance at that,,,,, you may well find that the pace will increase as your training continues but dont fight it, run to feel rather than pace as this is probably the better way to judge it. especially at the early stage. as the distance increases then you will need to hold yourself back to something that feels too easy at the outset to ensure you have enough gas in the tank for the last 10k..... 

What I would say is to try to up the distance of one of your midweek runs a bit.....Maybe do a 2/3 miler as a recovery the day after your long one and pop the extra mileage on the other midweek one if time and life permit......

if you are doing consecutive 20's then you really dont want to be churning out the big miles in the week as well..... also if you come back and the week 13 20 miler is a struggle it will not hurt to cut it back by a portion and do it week 14 and then taper.down from there.

How many 20 or 20+ milers have you in the plan?
