feeling sick now!
6 miles for me today went out with the other has to be the warmest day we had this year for training
Good morning all,
Hope you are enjoying the sunshine, hope it doesn't get to hot for Susie.
Firstly - huge congrats to all at Brighton, Toby you really deserved that time the mileage you have put in and weight loss has been tremendous really well done so pleased for you. B&T - huge congrats to you as well I'm sorry though Ive not fully read your report may attempt it later.
Susie -I know its too late but best wishes to you today and will be following your progress.
Sal - Run intervals at current fitness increase pace if progress is made.
I think it was Dee who asked about running slower to get faster, it can be done but patience is needed, very good for building mileage up and preventing injury. It builds the aerobic side of your fitness and you will find for the same pace your HR will come down. I'm guessing that is something like Toby trained like for Brighton? I can go into more detail if needed just let me know? HR is better done by a test rather than an age formalue. If you have raced a 10K lately HR should read about 90% of Max HR.
Meself - Well you know its been difficult for me to get back into running well had to have a few more weeks off due to illness so I'm attempting to start again. Have done some gentle jogs last three days and off out again in a moment before watching some race on the T.V. just hope that all goes well.
Take care guys.
p.s - What HM did everyone enter?
susie well done on the PB look forward to the report
Well done Susie, To PB at London is good going
Susie huge well done on your PB - the atmosphere looked amazing on the TV. Look forward to your race report!
Parkrun PB of 23.30 for me this Saturday (and 1st lady in age group) so pleased with that. I am now wondering whether I can get a sub 23 min this year? I am also hoping that I will be on target for a 48ish min 10k at the Bupa race at the end of May
With all the marathon running over the last 2 weeks I am crazily looking for an Autumn Marathon to run. At the moment I am on waiting list for Abingdon, considering Yorkshire Plusnet one (am on waiting list for extra race places being released this Friday) and the Thames Meander one in August. Decision's, decisions..
Susie well done on your pb...like everyone else has said it looked amazing on the tv this year...i too will try yet again for the 5th year in a row to try and get in via the ballot as id love to experience the marathon that is london.....although my first love will always be brighton
Lisa 123 have you considered the bacchus marathon in surrey on the 9th september you get wine and beer on the way round!! as well as water and a bbq at the finish for all those that ran...

Well done on your pb to
susie loved the report sounds like you had a great time
Damn - posted a lovely long post, then lost it having fun with my shiny new computer (not)
Short version - great race report Susie, and great pace overall as well
Good running from everyone else as well - loving the lighter evenings and better weather!
Chippenham HM in September for me, CW, and either Cricklade or Swindon in October.
Looking for shorter (faster!) races now - found a local 10K on a Wed evening in June, the River Run 5K in July (Mel - sharpening my elbows and practicing my sprint starts for that one!)
Finally made it out for my first post-marathon run this morning. Meant to take it slowly, but after sprinting past the bin men, decided to just run fast as a change. felt good!! 4.08M in 40:20 - faster than I've run for weeks and weeks!
