Well, its bin awile, but since November I have been focussing on c.45min-1 hour runs at marathon race pace and 1.5hour-2hours runs at MRP+30sec/miles. "Marathon race pace" is still around 7.15 min/miles (ie sub-3.15), but aim to move to 6.52's in the New Year as I aim to target the big 2:59:59.

Was going OK and while I have been getting contiual calf tightening/hints of shin splint type aches I have bene careful after each run to leave off until I was waking up in the morning feeling fine before going out again.

BUT cycling not so good. Went out with a group of other North London mid-lifers on Sunday for a 3 hour ride. Was a fair intensity but nothing unusual and not harder than when I go on my own. 2 hours in my legs turned to concrete and small of my back started to ache badly. Slowed up and suffered ignomony of having to be waited for at a petrol station at the top of the climb. Rolling Eyes first time I have every "bonked" on the bike. Still, I understand it is traditional for triathletes to be dropped on the hills by "proper" cyclists...

Subsequently have had quite bad sharp pains in lower back so am worrying that might have mild slipped disc. Is this going to be this year's winter training disaster? It was all going so well.... Mad

Have good Xmas all. Looking forward to better news in NY!

Good luck with the sub3 attempt; hopefully will be there also by the end of next year Smile Get to the docs sooner rather than later to get a diagnosis for your back; it has to do a lot of work when running and on the bike. Do you have a core routine?
