1,000 miles in 7 weeks
not sure howe someone who has trained for a month can have completed the equivalent of 8 marathons already - am I reading that right? Is he run/walking?
I had 5 years running plus a 4 month buildup to my first (and only) marathon (London 06)
Impressive...but does not compute
Gosh hope he doesn't hurt himself big time!
I can, quite genuinely, say I'd rather be at work than doing that lot - and that's really saying something.
Like the sound of the "entourage" though - an ice cream van, two tents, a camper van and a sports therapist!
Talking about food again, Shimmy?
Ice cream here, cheese on the other thread....
Edit - except it was me that started it this time! Ooops
Yes, I'm pretty sure I've heard of him running much longer ago than 4 weeks - I've been following him on Twitter for quite some months and he's definitely mentioned running before. Nothing 'serious' I don't think, but he's not a complete newbie.
Even so, I'm sure he wasn't in, say, Gordon Ramsey league (as far marathon-running celebs go), so this is certainly a huge feat!
"7 weeks, 30 miles a day, 6 days a week"
This is what he is going to do according to his you tube clip ....even assuming until now he has a good average base level of training over many months (say 20 miles a week) , and has spent 4 weeks marathon training, this doesn't seem at all feasible...
I'd say the first 30 miles would be beyond him but no, apprently I'm wrong - he has apparently done 8 days of this
Here's a linky thing to the youtube clip......
