Overdone it?

 After a quick flick through the new bits I noticed his comment that although marathon paced running has mental benefits, the physiological benefits are no greater than normal easy running .  I'll ask him about that at his coaching workshop next week if I get chance.


Having said that I probably didn't have time to run it at easy pace anyhow.

Actually I find it hard to believe that taking only that run in isolation v an easy 14 that my legs are not in better shape now - I can feel them improving every time I get up out of my seat!

Haha - another coincidence - we're going to Edinburgh.

EDIT: Good luck with the op DT. Hope everything goes well and the recovery time they've given you is a pessimistic one.

Yeah but I probably couldn't do your PMP at the moment either!

To be honest I set my alarm for 5:45 and planned to set out at 6 but dog woke me up at 5:15 and I thought there wasn't much point in trying to get back to sleep.

Good stuff Bob and DT. 

I'm in a similar position to you DT in that I've had to cram all my running into 4 days and then I'm off for another 3 day birthday jolly tomorrow. So 10, 12, 4 and then 14 with 10 at PMP this morning starting at 5:30 which made the warm up a bit of a mental and physical battle - at one point I wasn't sure that I would make the end of the warm up never mind do the whole session but 9 times round the park later it was in the bag.

Rich - I got 4 running books for Christmas. I asked for 3 and got the Vassos Alexander one as a surprise. I'm half way through book 2 so don't think I will need Again to Carthage pre marathon but would be interested to hear if it's any good.

Enjoy your weekends everyone.

Haha - sounds like your 10k time is a bit slow Rich?

Lovely controlled massive PB MadBee - race report version 2 coming to an Andy Yu blog some time soon - no doubt those finish line group photos will be all over it.

I think you missed - sodding going off far too fast!

5:43mm for first half and 5:57mm second half.

Anyhow as I've said already it's a fantastic time and will see you sitting pretty Power of 10 wise at end of year - well done.

Above updated for Muddy knocking over a minute off his already incredibly fast HM PB - a time that would have got him 54th on last year's list of V45 HM times so 

However there is another aspect to this - Muddy you are making the rest of us look shit - please stop getting faster!

Also a splendid PB smashing through the 1:30 barrier for MadBee although it was apparently Yu Assisted - I'm not sure if there is a symbol for that on Power of 10.

Finally DT is older than he was before. Happy Birthday for last weekend.

Haha - Muddy has got so fast at half marathons he only reports it in minutes now!

Brilliant times both!

Nice cross countrying others and excellent long running DT.

I ran parkrun before I went away in exactly 20:00 which I found strangely pleasing.

TTT update at some point - might be time for a separate Platinum table with only Muddy in it!

Just 30 miles for me last week.

14 weeks to go.

Not sure who that's aimed at, Skinny, but it's good

I was using 'you' to collectively mean the members of/contributors to this thread.

Wow Madbee - the opportunity to be paced by the one and only Andy Yu - it's going to be hard to turn down although your running might be affected if you are starstruck.

Good luck to the Brass Monkey 2 (Muddy and Madbee) or are there more? And presumably also good luck to those of you plodding your way round muddy fields too.

I'm away in Glasgow as the first weekend of a two weekend celebration of Mrs Skinny's 50th birthday.
