Yeah, I think I better stay with 15-18k @ race pace (or even 10-15 seconds slower/km). Thank you guys!
I've got 13.5 kms in my plan...you guys are tempting me to round up to 15 though...
BaguetteBak - love it. Might have to buy one off you Squirrellypoo if I do Paris again next year.
Can I commission a BananaandwinegumsBak?
Hmmmmm just converted my miles into km's and my training plan has me down for 19k this coming weekend. It's a RW schedule yet on another page on this very site it does say don't go further than 8-10M (13-16k) in your final LSR! Think I'll do less given the choice!!
Love it! RW giving contradictory advice...neeeevvvaaaaa
I'm just planning a parkrun PB followed by an easy hour on Sunday, the work should all be done by then!
My schedule says 8m this weekend and I tend to do better when I don't do too much the week before, so I'll stick to more or less that. No more than 10 miles for sure... I'll be focusing on the food and drink from this point
Am doing things backwards; lots of reading to catch up on but thought I'd message first Can't believe it's only 12 days away... have had a chest infection for the last 8 weeks so training not exactly gone to plan... have got the Kingston challenge run this w/e - 16m and that's me done!
does anyone know where i can sell my entry to the full amsterdam marathon 2012? i can no longer go
Owing to my injury I can no longer take part in the marathon. I have a hotel booked for the night before the marathon. If anybody is interested in buying this from me let me know. The hotel website is www.moevenpick-amsterdam.com It is right in the centre. I open to any reasonable offer and I will accept a lot less than the hotel charges.
Bad news OS. I'm in the same boat but going along for the ride
(Other clichés are available)
I think I need a reality check. London this year was my first marathon - 3:19:07. Entering Amsterdam I am feeling very strong and am trying to talk myself into targeting a sub 3:10. Am I crazy? My HM PB is 1:36 set over a year ago and I am much fitter, stronger and faster now, so definitely think I can put that down as a first half, but a second half 1:34 will be very very difficult. BUT it is flat, it is race conditions and who knows. Get it wrong though and I will have a painful second half and struggle to beat my London time perhaps.
How's training felt Garch? Sounds like it's gone well. Any races lately you could gauge potential from?
Negative splits is a tough one. If you really think it's on I'd be tempted to look at the times for the 2 halves the other way around.
Garch i think Leeds Rob advise of a 1:36 and the a 1:34 is a more achieveable target, Very impressive 1st marathon time. Im sure you have pick up a lot of experience from it. Most people knock a lot off their first marathon time so if training has gone well as you say you wont be far off 3:10 Best of LuckRed_Rach be careful chasing a parkrun PB this weekend as i did the same last weekend and got one only to feel my calf after i crossed the finish linePhysio says im 50/50 at the moment.
Running the mara next weekend, flight booked, yet to book accommodation. Any recommendations please? I've been looking at guest houses as well as Schipol airport hotels and barge stays. How easy is it to get to the Olympic stadium from Central station?
