'Ello, feeling a bit charged, had another 10+ miles this evening in the form of track work and recovery runs. All sorts of interval naughtiness, can't say I was at my freshest. 20.7 for the day. This week's training loaded heavy in the early part of the week, so it won't be crazy mileage by Sunday

Ok I did it, I did some more training. Ran home from work easy pace, including up the dreaded Highgate West Hill. Total 5 miles at 8:26 average . Got home, peeled loads of veg and put the dinner on (wife finished it off) I hopped into the motor, over to Finsbury park track, warm up laps, 1 x 1600 / 6 mins then 8 x 400s ranging from 80-85s then another 6 min 1600. Total for the day 20.7 miles, not bad for a Tuesday.

they are mean things that live in the corner of my bathroom and give me annoying news whenever I consult them. They are kinder during the business end of marathon training campaigns though

my scales have told me that I'm 8 pounds heavier than I was when I ran Abingdon

Amazing DanA / Tmoth. 8-8.5 min miling for 40 miles is still bloody great! That all day plod thing does sound good. I like the idea of stopping for lunch along the way! I'm slowly coming round to the idea that I might run an ultra / 100k at some point - just for fun (not time goal) - but at the moment it still sounds like crazy talk.

You'll be there soon enough Heather. It's horrible missing it - you feel like a caged animal when you can't run. Ease yourself back in, don't ramp up the mileage straight as previously advise by other folks on here

TD - you love a graph! (although not that graph) - thankfully you are able to maintain a decent level of fitness through cycling - you are a monster on 2 wheels. I hope you are able to run Paris and get yourself fixed up more long term.

10 mile tempo today with last 4 at mara pace. Got a little endorphin rush now - was in a dark place yesterday

Morning All. 10 mile "tempo" run (commute longer route) with 4 at mara (6.45) pace. Feeling a lot better after the run than before. Wonder what other training I can get done today, there's a track session going on at Finsbury tonight  ....  

I keep reading something about DanA doing a 40 mile run. It's just not registering  40 miles? what are you training for D
