...and the beat goes on...
Eggy - sounds like it was a bit of a battle for you today - impressive time! Glad you made it, glad your groin is intact....glad you enjoyed it. Enjoy the food mountain then come back and give us the details, man!
I thnk I must put Steamtown Marathon on my list for next year. Known as a fast course, mostly downhill. A friend wih a previous PR of around 4.04 finished today in 3.35.
Guess I should really just try finish the one next week before I consider others!
YM - that's really sad news. HUGS for all!
Eggy - way to go!!! that's a brilliant time with 16 miles of injury pain!
PF - yeah, I agree with yer_maj...you + race = space blanket. It's just got to be done. Looking forward to the photo
Windsor half done and dusted for me with a new PB. Only 2 mins off the old one so now down to 1:53:40ish. didn't remember the course being as hilly as that from last time I did it FYI, don't mention a possible the sub whatever amsterdam! you never know what's going to happen over twice the distance!
YM: condolences for the loss in your family
Eggy: Fricken awesome - 4.04 is a fantastic time especially when injured. You can tick chicago of your list and be proud of that score. I would love to get that. I'm thinking my best half time x 2 + 26 minutes and i will be happy.
PF: good 8 min mile averaging - thats about where i am with my training at the moment - seeking the 45min 10K and 1.50 half marathon.
RS: windsor half - plan to do that one in the future. Well done on the PB - i just PB'd at the GNR a fw weeks back. Just recover well and keep your training maintained. Well done everyone for their efforts today (including me)
Eggy: fab run you - hope groin doesn't play up too .congrats!!!
Radar: oh NGUG and I know exactly how hilly windsor is - was a heatwave the year I did it - horrid!!! Excellent pb - amsterdam you'll fly round - not a lot of hills in amsterdam are there.
Swim for me tomorrow then 4 hopefully tuesday, nice and gentle back into the R2R plan!!!! Tape is now removed ........
yer_maj: my condolances, take care of you and yours.
Heatwave, she says. Like that's news....
Well I just popped out to the pub quiz round the corner and on the way back thought I'd just try a teensy weensy run...of about 30 paces but it didn't hut at all so I am holding out lots of hopes for the official tryout on Tuesday. I also recruited another one for Paris
I smell a big fat sub 4 in the 'Dam, Ms Radar....
Jimbob: RS has already done a 4.07 in Paris earlier this year. She's gonna smoke the Dam and come in at 3.53.
Glad you enjoyed my hometown's race, Eggyh! I've never run it myself, since I don't train well for long distances in the summer. Cooler spring marathons are my forte, although I wish I could have traded this year's Boston for Chicago.
Covers eyes/ears and metaphorically shouts very loudly! "LA LA LAAAAA LAA LA LA LAAA LAAA" SHHHHHH!!!!!! I'll say what I said to others: in spring I did just under 1:56 in a training half and got 4:07 for Paris. I am planning on going for a faster than ever before toodle around Amsterdam but will NOT be thinking of that resulting a sub 4, before it is in the bag. Too much can happen over 42.2 kms (26.2 miles for the traditional among us) and the last 10 kms are generally a killer for me. So shhhhhhh!!!!!! Think it (thanks for the good thoughts ) but don't mention it to me.
RS - No probs
It is soooooooo cold here today. I was going to try a wee run this morning but instead thought I'd leave it until after work in the hope that it'll be a little warmer. Mouth still sore but feeling a bit better. Think I may use my Paris buff today when running for the first time ever!
