Andy, what do you think the key change to your training was to get that improvement. I recently improved from 1:37 at Helsby to 1:29 in Warrington. My long term goal is now 1:19:xx Cheers
Luke- i literally just ran more and consistently so for example
2010 race time 1:27:50 was off about 30mpw
2011 race time 1:24:18 was off about 40-60mpw
2012 race time 1:18:00 was off about 65mpw
also with each passing year training is getting more consistent.
its really nothing complicated, just about the hours in consistently week in week out. also its about training sensibly, not running your self into the ground, by this i mean not hammering every single training run.
1010 entries so far, got to wait till payday on Thursday to enter, hope there are still places left.
sheesh filling up quick isn't it.
I'm in (providing of course I survive Snowdonia).
I'm in, entered last night. Nice to see all my favourite forumites doing it too!
It is a good course and I also think it is because of the time of year, everyone ready to shake off post Christmas crap.
How you feeling today Andy? Hope not too disappointed re yesterday.
I'm in 1180th to enter. After horrible last 6 miles at Chester yesterday,I'm looking forward to a more sensible distance !
Got an email from the organisers today, 1200 signed up already with a limit of 2000 runners, will be full up within a week or so.
You asked, so I shall give you the truth... I am like a bag of boiled shit. In bed, destroyed. Reason being: didn't recovery fuel correctly. A latte, wine and beer and pizza has caused dehydration. I never learn. You not jumped on the FB Chester group yet?
Right, on board number 1856. Got a target to aim for again and feel revitalised after last weekends marathon
