Looks like I will be doing this one.......this was the last marathon I ran in 2007 and then out for the next 2 years with stress fractures.....funny that!

Muzza - Great time at Devon....sub3 here too?

hello stranger!! I knew you were having probs, glad to see you back, thats the plan but all depends on the conditions, can be rough up there!

Its a real toughie all right, but I do love this marathon and did 2:56 in 2007 which was probably my best all time marathon run.

Far less ambitious this time and looking for just under 3.15 to get an old codger GFA.

Thats 3 of us then, anymore for anymore?

2.56 is awesome on this course m8, be good t catch up!!

Got any others planned??
12/11/2010 at 17:19
I'll see whats left of me after the Cornish!! Would like to get back down to sub3 again, maybe Taunton April 2011?

12/11/2010 at 20:31
you will!! Ill be there mate, got a few planned but entered berlin for september I hope to go for it there.

Yeah hopefully use the slingshot effect of Cornwall to sort out the training for a good Autumn marathon and tend to run well at Taunton. Have always fancied Berlin marathon, an interesting city and a fast fast marathon.

Just back from last 10 miler around the foothills of Tiverton, farms with alpachas everywhere. A few more easy runs next week and then Pensilva here we come. Hope the weather is something like today - ideal.

Have you come across this 'thing' - technically speaking - where you run and eyes-out fast mile run on the Thursday, which supposedly really boosts your carbo load? Thinking of going it a go - Am I sounding desperate yet!

Just for the record Muzza, I'm just lookin for a course pb................ I should be good to beat 3:40 shouldn't I?
14/11/2010 at 22:13

Iain, you could break 3.40 if you swam to bideford from braunton biked tp pensilva then run it ya muppet!! here we go.........wating for the excuses to come.........

Ouch, Berlin is fast but I still think amsterdam is better, flat dont really suit me to be honestso must get on the bike to strenghten the quads for the constant flat, did berlin in 2003 so I know what to expect.

Not heard to the fast mile thing, but I do know carb depletion sun-wed then carb load works, its hard and you feel like crap it can also pick up a cold as you deplete. dont do it anymore, I just eat really healthy now till friday then sat carboload a bit, not much tho, seem to run better not feeling to bloated by carbs! I use gels and have a good breakfast so that seems to be working of late, 2.56 at wolves 3.02 at eden and a 2.56 the week after at D Vale then a 1.20.00 at stroud half the wk after that seems to work!! but does show to me I should be running faster than 2.56, thats why I eneterd berlin! only just recovered from it tho!!

Iain, Dont forget that Ironman Kona medal......I wanna see it!! Ill text you later in wk about lift etc.

15/11/2010 at 21:10
