Just cut it to a level that ou are happy with.
10 miles might be enough, even less if necessary, but you just need the long slow bit and its all relative.
At 10mm, 12 miles would be two hours. Two hours is plenty unless you are training up.

Dont ditch the LSR, just tailor it to your needs.

It's the time that does me, not the distance.

Probably best. Might even be worth touching it down to 2:30 next week, see how I respond the day after.

I'm just hoping today's pile of poo was down to not recovering from yesterday. I had a bad one last Saturday as well. I've no idea why for that one.

Hey, James, you've had a big month, let the adaptions happen, don't push it too hard.

Everyone has a bad run from time to time, it is part of the running game.
