Right that's the last nights entertainment sorted. Ice hockey ticket bought for the United Centre on the Wednesday night after the race. I don't fly home until the Thursday. Holiday feels a wee bit closer now. If only I could get some time off work to get some training in.......
I'm back, glad to see the thread is still alive
Started my 18 week P&F plan the other week but my Bullock Smithy reccing is getting in the way of my flat long runs, it's all hills in the Peak District
Ran the Yorkshire 3 Peaks last weekend, fantastic event.
Got my first 14 mile tempo run on Wednesday so that should give me an idea of where I am fitness wise
Best of luck with your training
Good luck with that tomorrow. Should be a good indicator of where you are at for Chicago. I have a slightly smaller race than you, a 5 miler, so looking for a bit of speed work. Hopefull my legs will play ball in the morning. Just been out for a lovely 2 hour jog and luckily avoided all rain. Still bloomin humid mind you. Its raining now though and looks set in for the rest of the day.
At least there is still time for an improvement though. And what was the weather like, hot and humid? since that will add a few minutes here and there. Still sounds like a solid time to me though...And you probably didn't taper either?
As for my 5 mile race. Well was 5.8 in the end due to an accident on the course prior to the start. It was quickly re-routed and we were told it was about 5 miles (ish!!). First race i have ever run where i had no clue as to where the finish was!! Pushed soon after 4 miles to try and catch a guy in front thinking the finish was soon only to discover it was a bout 1.5 miles away!! Oh well. Finish time was 37.01 for 4th place and 3rd senior male. Sitting here pleasently chuffed
