Hi all,

Rotting timing but the dreaded word for me - injury. I was hoping to seek some advice if possible.

I've had a shin niggle for a few weeks now. I've been taking ibuprofen and to be honest I've taken the typical runners attitude of 'it'll ride out'. Well, it's the inside of my shin on my right leg that it hurting. Did 8 miles last night and it was okay after the first few minutes. Tonight, however, was a very sorry 3 miles.

I'm thinking it's probably sensible to skip some of my schedule now and rest. Like most runners though, were afraid of losing our edge by not running! If I rested until Tuesday and then tried again do you think that would be reasonable. I really think it's probably over-use/inflammation.

Hi all,

 

Shoe dilemma. I use Brooks Defyance 7 which are now well worn, a few weeks back I noticed that they were unavailable therefore opted (probably naively) to buy some Mizuno Wave Riders. Now, I've since purchased some Brooks Defyance 8 which are due to arrive tomorrow and debating over which footwear to wear for the marathon.

 

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi all,

Hoping for a bit of advice. I'm in the dilemma of following the 12 week P&D schedule but have entered a few races from now until Manchester Marathon, the first one being a half marathon next week. I realise I'm going to have to sacrifice some weekly mileage so I'm not turning up to the race completely ruined, so I was wondering what you would do, for example which sessions you would reduce/drop from this weeks scheduled plan;

Mon-Rest

Tue-13mi MLR

Wed-15mi MLR

Thu- 5mi Recovery

Fri-10mi LT with 5 miles 15k/HM pace

Sat - 5mi Recovery

Sun - 18mi LR

With Sunday's Half Marathon in mind, I plan to do an extra 5 'warm down' miles to take it to 18. I planned on resting tomorrow (Mon) having done 20 today. Tuesday I planned on doing a LT session, or I tend to mix it up and do some mile or kilometre reps. Wednesday I plan doing 15 miles and possibly the 13 mile slot on the Thursday. Having said that,  I think with the race coming up, should I drop the 13 miler on Thursday? Drop down to lower mileage/or just run the full 13 very easy? I then plan to do 5 recovery miles on Friday, and rest Saturday before the (hilly) half marathon  on Sunday. Does that sound reasonable? Naturally I hope to be getting in as much mileage as possible, but hope to turn up to Sunday's race feeling fresh and raring to go!

Morning all! Had a bit of a disaster (typical me) morning. Attempted to a parkrun at Bradford, which I've only done once or twice. In trying a different route, Siri led me astray and I ended up missing the bloody thing. 25+mile round trip for nothing. As if Bradford wasn't already depressing enough!

Anyhow, I got home and did 10 very muddy miles on the Chevin (big hill) in eerie, crisp conditions with 1 000 ft elevation. Saw a deer too! Lovely!

Happy running this weekend everyone. Is anyone racing?

 

Can anyone recommend accommodation around Manchester or perhaps farther afield? I' don't mind being a bit out to avoid extortionate hotel costs!

Hi all, I'm a strava user and looking to start implementing P&D 55-70 schedule, anyone else looking to run sub3? Only thing I'm clear on is pacing of runs.

Hi all,

Did a good session tonight, 2x3x1K reps on the back of 8 miles last night. Feeling good, hitting around about 10K pace (5:45-50) 

Thanks for the advice, I'm still struggling to ascertain around about what pace I need to be running at in the P&D sessions. Perhaps it'll be a case of trial and error. 

Madbee - I'm only down to do Snake Lane, I've never done it actually as its on my birthday. Will try tone down on the booze this year  Heard its a flat one. 

If you're after a fast one, I'm not sure what distance you're looking at but Dewsbury (early Feb) is a quick 10K. Brass Monkey is possibly the quickest HM in the country but sells out within hours. That's in January and needless to say, its full!
