Sounds like you’re in a good groove M and I think that remembering that running is a gift at the best of times and particularly now is a positive place to be.

I like running big weeks (I think 80 odd has been my max) and have strung quite a few 200+ months together in the past just for fun, as well as for a race target, but ultimately ended up a bit over-fatigued when I kept it up for too long so, deliberately, I aim to ‘periodise’ things a bit more now, in order to create some sort of peak for my next target race, whenever that may be.

Here’s hoping that you get your 3:29:xx opportunity sooner than we think!

Wise SS, I think I’ll settle back down once winter is over to minimum 30 m/w but trying not to think too far ahead .. although I do!

Oscar the Grouch, I’ve always trained well but not managed to pull it off on day unfortunately.

Final three at sub 3hr pace? Think 3:30 looks a very soft target if you can hit that already, but you're in a good place definitely!
