Excellent time! Puts you right up there for a good for age qualification time for the London Marathon too, in case you were interested in that :D

About 77% age graded score.

Really well done... and shows the power of (not that) little and often. predicted VO2 max of about 50 as well.

Thanks guys. Part of the reason for me doing the thread is because of the number of people I hear of getting broken from ramping up training too quickly and my view that you only need rest days if you a do a lot of intensity work.
The thread I think captures my view, that for ME, frequent low intensity trail runs will a) get me to the start line and b) get me to the finish line in a decent time. I know that it will not get me my best possible time as I don't do enough race pace and above efforts (I think ave pace yesterday was faster than any pace I have run at for any duration since my last hm in October) and I am sure a coach would have me doing something different.

Full marathon is an interesting thought. Never done one, would like to, but not sure.
