Joe - Steve does a huge % of his training around 70% of MHR so the speed for the consecutive marathons makes sense to me.

Thanks for the good luck messages - I'll be lucky to better my london time. What idiot tries to run a marathon whilst relocating, working full time and having a longer commute?

Rest day today - will reassess legs tomorrow! they are heavy this week with no life. Not taper madness - just miles at the weekend on hills. Hoping they magically improve in the next day or 2. If they don't I may can the whole thing and go shopping :-)
