You're not messing about!

Your focus needs to be on recovery over the next 2 weeks, then you'll need a 2 week taper. I wouldn't take the long run beyond 18miles really, so perhaps 60 minutes, 120 min, 180 min, 120, 60 on each of the next Sundays.

Don't overstress yourself with speed work and, if in doubt, go easy by cutting miles and intensity rather than frequency of sessions.

Judging by the typos in that last post, I'm still not back to working a keyboard correctly yet!

Got something to say?
