Preparing for a marathon from scratch, in 22 weeks.
Hi Steph and Sinbad -
was intending to do Coalville 10k this morning but was talked into going out last night (well, I say "talked into" but have the breaking strain of a kitkat so it was a no brainer!)
Was late back so gave the 10k a miss this morning and decided on a long steady this afternoon, 9.9 miles in 1.43, so reasonably happy though am sure the extra 3.5 miles next Sunday will make themselves felt!
Hope youve sorted out your amp, you'll probably find other stuff goes kaput at the same time, usually in threes or is it just me?!
Spooky! had my washing machine replaced this week (must be the only person who has had this done with blessing of extended warranty company!) and also new suspension arm on car! I keep saying I'm never going to have another Alfa but am lying to myself - this is my sixth.
On the plus side, all ipods and sound dock still working!
Talk about weired, I have had to buy a new washing in the past couple of weeks to.
Glad your going to try and make up the lost 10K Jen.
Using two times, to me means that you can work out the difference between the two.
I'm in a bit of a panic now. I used my new pedometre on my run this morning, and gave myself a bit of a fright. 3.5k in 53 minutes, yet people on different forums talk about 10k in under an hour .
The manchester MoRun 10k is on the 24th of November.
Determined to get round it one way or another. Only been able to gauge the distance before now, I don't drive so makes life a bit difficult.
Hope people are ok?
Booktrunk thanks for that.
I'm sure all of us wish you luck. I personally feel you will do great. You have trained hard, and as you said it seems to happen naturally when it all comes together.
If ever I post too much let me know. I practically live on this web site at the moment. Its helping keep me out of pub, and save money for all the usual stuff and my boat.
Hope all is well.
Dont forget, all your training is done now, do not do anything silly this week, just go for a few simple little runs,a long run now would ruin you for next Sunday, nerves and temptation will make you want to do a long run, dont give in. Good luck for the big day, you have loads of support from this site alone.
Here here to the post above.
Can only second whats been posted above, we're all rooting for you Steph and will looking forward to see how you go! Will keep an eye out for you - albeit a slimline version of the self you describe in your first post!
Keep posting Sinbad, good to hear how you're getting on , and yes, I managed to make up for missing the 10k by going for a long steady (9.9 miles) yesterday afternoon. Tomorrow I'm going to have a drive over to the site where they hosted the 10k as it got some decent reviews on the forum considering it was a first time event and will use that for last 10k before next Sunday, then as Happy has suggested, just a couple of little runs.
Good luck at Oxford Tara, let us know how you do. (PS: keep an eye on your washing machine, this thread has a jinx!)
Good luck, booktrunk; I can't wait to find out how you get on; I'm excited for you here. Great thread too.
