Thanks for the warning @Stuuuuuu. I will follow a plan nearer the time. I've got a marathon training book, and at the moment I'm trying to do around 40k per week. But I'm also trying to do some of the other suggested sessions like some core training, tempo, progressive runs, some hills (though I've not done the specific hill session yet with 10 repeats), and a few sprints.

This is what I'll be trying to follow from August.

I seem to recall that you found this book in a jumble sale or charity shop a few months back?

Well remembered! It turned up in a book swap that the wife and I set up, near where we live. It's a good book - full of useful advice.


I picked up the same book after your recommendation and have found it very useful also, although I have not really been following the training plan fully as yet.

Section on warm up and down exercises is particularly useful.

Nice relaxing 14k tonight keeping the heart rate below 140, for the vast majority. Trialled a Salomon hydration vest as I have struggled with belts/armbands etc for carrying things. Probably the most comfortable of the lot but the price if off-putting.

The price has always put me off when I've looked at the Salomon vests but then the reviews are great. I guess you get what you pay for. I've tried on cheaper ones in Decathlon but they felt a bit uncomfortable.

I've got a small inov-8 soft bottle that I run with but I need a bit more liquid now it's getting hotter. Been looking at the Salomon sensibelts but I'm unsure.

Was slow tough 5k in heat this morning before work. Signed up for Hampton court palace (where I work) 10k later in year. Decided to run it for Parkinson's as my partner's mum just been diagnosed with it. Got the t shirt yesterday so something to look forward to.
