Earlier his year for VMLM I was doing 7 miles at MP on the Saturday morning and Monday evening as well as 20 miles on the Sunday morning. Tuesday was my rest day but I felt extremely tired all day Tuesday.

There are other quicker, better ways of killing yourself.

Dannirr, that's exactly what happened to me in London this year. Probably a once in a lifetime event and I hated it. Although I work in London and have run over Tower Bridge (on the pavement) a few times so the only high point was running down the traffic free Mall.

I think I'll save the big city marathons for atmosphere and the local small ones for time.

I'm planning on running on HR. 145 for first 3 miles, 150-155 for miles 4-20, then 160+ for last 6miles.

Equates to around 9:30-9:00/mi. sub 4:20 should be possible.

I've done too many now where I've started far too fast. Going to reign it right back and see if that pays back in the final 6miles.

The problem with all these long distance runs is, if you're a 'slower' runner, they take a long time. 15 miles at 9:30/mi is getting on for two and a half hours. The 20milers over three hours which can't be doing you any good at all.

I'm convinced running for time is going to be much better. Long run two and a half hours, maybe 16miles, then some 10miles midweek, nothing shorter than 7miles. So even if you're doing intervals or speedwork, pad your session out to 7miles with easy warm up and cool down miles.

I agree. The problems stem from people who confuse 'shouldn't' with 'mustn't'. And then appoint themselves as policemen.

Anywhere you have groups of people governed by rules you get this problem.

On the roads in cars it creates road rage.

Live and let live and if someone is causing a nuisance or breaking a rule, report them.

Passport expires in June. Gov website says for stays under 3months it has to cover length of stay. I've got an Eurostar return ticket so hope it should be ok.
