J8/Foxy - Glad you are back safely

Anyone care to predict their time for Sunday? Be interested to see what people are hoping for, or shall I predict it for you?

JMC-- Even though my training has been stop/start all year AND i haven't trained anyway near as much as i did for Amsterdam AND i've only had a couple of decent long runs (that's enough excuses for now!) i'm going to try for another sub 3. Six weeks ago i was definitely just going to treat it as a decent long run but i've had six good weeks of training and i've been surprised how much my running seems to have improved over that period. It could all go tits up but there is no harm in trying!

JMC - sub 3
18/04/2013 at 12:41

PPP--Are you planning to run it backwards? The weather is still looking perfect!

GBM - thats the spirit. None of this pansying around to run an even paced race. Looking forward to it all going pear shaped at mile 23.

PPP - is that per km? More like 2:40!

Easy 8miles for me tonight from track if anyone interested.

18/04/2013 at 14:48

JMC - goes pear shaped about mile 17 I seem to remember for some who take the womble route. (Who gets it?)

Good to see everyone safely back from Boston.

JMC - 6.15 m/m for 23m then 9.15mm last 3.

GBM/FOAR - Do you want one of those silly white suits for the start?

18/04/2013 at 15:22

TST - I get it - you mean the route that goes via Bulgaria, Tomsk and Tobermory?

Article on the MEN website seemed to have mixed up my BG round with the Boston marathon, going for a trot round the track later

Well done GBM, Mickey, Kwaka and TB on the Boston marathon too. Did they not think a typical English market didn't look like Boston city streets?

Wellcome back.

truthfully I don't know what shape I am in. Tempting to try and run with RC.
a lack of build up races and speed work of any significance is making it hard to know how I will do. I have trained hard mileage wise and tried to tune up a little recently. I have even done 3 days of carb depletion which is a first for me! I think the hardest thing will be trying to put MCR out of my mind in the second half of the race.

I reckon I will try and see how 2:40 pace feels but will be pretty happy with anything under 2:45. Interestingly I noticed the club Vet 45 record is 2:46 (although the v50 and v55 are a fair bit quicker!) so that could be on! a nice soft target but it would be nice to hold a club record!

So targets
sub 2:40 (a bit far fetched)
sub 2:41:22 (london PB)
sub 2:45 (decent run)
sub 3 (if the wheels fall off)

the main target is to enjoy it as much as possible.
18/04/2013 at 15:44
oh, mega A target is sub 2:38:40 (pb) can't see it, but that would be over the moon time!
18/04/2013 at 15:59

PPP - what about the "so I decided to treat it as a training run" option

Good luck to you all and I'll see some of you at the Championship start.

18/04/2013 at 16:54
RB - I am saving that one for Manchester next week.

I'd forgotten you were pace making for me, see you sunday!

New list. Add your no. below

VLM No.s for those interested in tracking us:

Kwaka - 24398
Mike T - 13008 (running under 'lil kwaka')

Think this is the link:

I'm not sure about going for a sub 3 at VLM if i did Boston on Monday! 



ST - 10979
Kwaka - 24398
Mike T - 13008 (running under 'lil kwaka')



That link says you can track runners from 7am! Hope you all have fun tracking me eating my breakfast and going for a shit!

Have a great run at London everyone!

Please don't take the piss but I think I might have to cry.

I did my last training run tonight and felt my hamstrings a bit tight. Was only doing 4 miles working up to MP and then doing two miles at MP on the Chorlton Cycle path.

I stretched a bit and then set off and half a mile in I felt it tighten up and that was that! walked and jogged back to the car, occasionally swearing loudly. Each time I tried to run I could feel it but walking seemed OK.

Not pulled a hammy before and had a proper massage (agonising) off DB Tuesday so should have been OK.

Just think that is it for Sunday now. feel like a total tw@t.

Any advice?

I reckon it can only be a mild strain but I can't run on it.

Double DRAT!

PPP - let someone run their fingers over it first before backing out completely.
