106 miles for me in the past 13 days including 2*20 milers and 1 P&D session along with plenty of strength and flexibility work. Hmm this distance has surprised even myself. After this week I will through a couple of P&D MLRs see how it goes.

Also HR still running 4/5 bpm below what it was last year and the year before. Decisions to be made!

First-time poster!!
Evening people this is my first ever post on fetch. I am currently training for Manchester hoping for sub 3:15. Training has gone well and i ran a 1:26 half last week. This will be my 8th marathon my pb being 3:26 in London last year. Wondering whether taking 11 minutes off my pb is likely given the above.

Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome....

I'd say you are right in the ball park, but there's lots more experienced folk here than me will be along presently. Hard to tell from the training that I can see on your profile.

1:26 looks like you're in a great position to go under 3:15, but like OTG says knowing more about your overall training would give a better indication.

Are you better trained this time than you were for your 3:26?

Welcome, by the way!!

London was slow for most people last year due to the heat, so that's one thing.
