here we go again
Thanks Toby. There is one I have done before that I was hoping to do in March but it is on 29th and I thought it would be too close to Marathon date to do but I just looked and the plan has me doing 14 that day anyway so Im guessing I would be okay to do it afterall?
you can treat it one of two ways either treat the race as a training run or just go for the time i tend to go for the time at least that way i no i can keep my marathon pace up for at least 13.1 miles
great effort folks. stick at it.
Managed a 12 miler on Friday, which I found quite tough, despite being a flat, road / seafront course!
Then a quiet weekend for me. Gentle bike ride Saturday with Mrs J. Rest day Sunday, meal with friends, eating outside in the sun. Could be the last time this year the way the weather is heading. 7 miles at a reasonable pace this morning.
Tillstar, to add to what Toby said, my personal advice would be, if you do decide to go for the time that close to the marathon, just make sure that you have a real recovery week the next week, with very little running. Two weeks out from a marathon, a good HM could be just the thing to finish your training, but you will need to make sure that your joints are fully recovered for the 26.2. -I usually find it takes two weeks to recover from a tough HM, so if you are disciplined, it could work well for you, but as you say, probably best to decide nearer the time.
Happy runnings everyone
13 miles for me Saturday with Poohbear and another 10 today had to break out the long running tights and rain coat for the first time for a while must say i struggled a bit back on afternoons as from today so hopefully it won't take me long to get back to my usually running routine
6 miles yesterday off up to Newcastle for the GNR next Friday then a week off and then it's the Bristol H/M
13 miles for me today banging in the mileage at the moment to try to lose some of the weight i put on last week
