Wow that's good going Neil
I'm building up slowly. Did Watford HM yesterday and paced it really well for once. I don't step up to serious mileage for another 2 weeks. Longest run will be 20m at a mixture of steady and MP.
Keep it going

I think u might be right ref hill sessions. Every time I do that or track sessions I seem to get injuries.

did an easy stationery bike at gym today instead of spinning as I have Watford half tomorrow. i think. Have trapped nerve as pain in back going to lower leg. 

On antiinflamontery pills and painkillers. Going to take it very steady tomorrow just want to get 13m under the belt.

Thanks for tips on parking.

willy- based on previous times I would think you will hit your target.

how is everyone running going. I've completed my base weeks and now this week start to step it up. My longest run will be this Sunday 10m with my midweek runs and spinning class.

Hi Neil. Perfect marathon for you first one. Flatfish course and busy but not to busy.

Tenniso- I always find I run faster in a Autumn marathon than Spring. I've entered Berlin which everyone is telling me is PB potential. I'm following a Runners world 16wk program for this one, with 3/4runs 20m or longer for the endurance part. First HM race will be Watford on Feb 7th anyone else doing that one or others in March-April?

Ive done both of those HM in MK. I'm planning on doing the 20m run in MK which is the same day as the half. I like the July one very scenic but can be very hot!!!

Nader- thanks for info I'm really looking forward to this one now. Going to try and break my PB if all training goes to plan
Nader could you not put your hockey training into good use as training for this marathon ?

Hi VDOT52- MK marathon is flat/fast and is a possible PB on the new course. Date May2nd (BHM) good race with about 1.5-2k doing the full marathon and about 4K doing half.
Worth giving a go
