    I ran my first Ultra on Saturday, you passed me when I’d done 17 and you were probably on 27 miles. Not only was your overall time amazing but you acknowledged us mere mortals on your warm down lap coming the other way. Good luck in your future races, Roger Thomasson, Fareham Crusaders.

      Congrats on getting through your first Ultra Roger…. No turning back now! Good
      Uk with your training and future races too.

  2. Hi Steve,

    We would like to run some positive editorial on you. Can we publish your before and after images?

    Steve, Any chance you could update this with your weekly training plans up until London?

    Ps bet your website views have spiked recently :)

    Hi Steve,

    Long time listener, first time caller!

    Wondered if you could give me a little advice. I’ve got the Venice Marathon in two and a bit weeks and am in a conundrum as to whether to follow my training plan (Daniels) for this weekend’s long run. It says to do 19 miles total including 15 miles at Marathon pace. With 15 days to go to the marathon (my first!) would this perhaps do more damage than good?

    I’ve been in the region of 50 + miles per week for the last 14 weeks, and have been doing long runs in the region 18-20 miles (often including some tempo, or marathon pace) for the past 8 weeks, peaking with two runs of 22.

    Many thanks, and also thanks for the inspiration!
