...and the beat goes on...
RS - If I remember correctly they open in October. First come first served basis with the prices increasing in the same way as Paris. I'll be registering for Paris and Berlin at the same time.
Chris Hoy: What a boy
Just found this thread. Considering running Paris marathon next year but have a few questions:
First of all, you need to ask mummy or daddy if you are allowed out to play. If they say yes, then pack your best plimsolls and make sure you take a packed lunch of an apple, egg sandwich and a carton of orange juice.
Enjoy the marathon. Its just like school sports day.
Has anyone told you yet that you have to run it in French?
I think that I am as confused as you are.
In England our Marathons are 26.2 miles but in France they seem to run 42.2 kilometers. That seems a lot longer
How about the Big Five Marathon in South Africa? Anyone else interested?
Dannirr - is that where you get chased by a Lion, an elephant, a rhino etc....? Sounds a bit scary. Although an ultra-running pal from SA who lived in Namibia said that he regularly saw lions who in general, would only be bothered if you were slow, so he used the opportunity to insert some interval training into his runs.
Going to SA sounds way better than the over-hyped NYC race.
I'm thinking Geneva next year.....
The Big Five looks interesting.....mmmmmmmm.......Think I need a new well paid job!!!! Or to win the lotto.
6.5 miles easy this morning. I have decided to go back to HR training and have realised I am not pushing myself enough??? I have been running to recommended pace but over the last few days found out that my HR's during this is well on the low side even for easy run pace. Today I kept my HR at just below 70% WHR(except from on the hills) and came in at a whole 30 seconds per mile faster, on average???? Also I find that HR doesn't freak me out nearly as much as telling me to run 7.30mm for 6 miles Just shows its all in the mind!!!! Advice will be most appreciated???
OO does that mean the rhubarb might be moving again?
Infiniti amount of rhubarb Neil. If you can send me any of your prolific rhubarb seeds in the post OO, that will be gratefully received.
My leg swelled up again after Sunday's run, so am obviously having to slow down my ramp up back to fitness. Haven't run since then. Might get out for a bike ride tonight.
Did it swell in the same place TD? Bit weird that it went down and then came back. Still, sounds like you're managing to keep yourself busy with swimming and biking.
I did the 9k loop on my own yesterday, seemed to have a constant headwind but just snuck inside 38 minutes. Next run will be Friday - going to join the Beat Route Runners for an evening race (10k) in Duisberg. I think I'll try switching from Smart to 1 second data recording for the race: was a bit surprised that I had 800m less than you over 20k, and the impact that could have on the lap pace which the Garmin displays.
Hello newbie Robert! You only have to remember one thing to run Paris. Tape your tits.
TD - I saw your clone on the tube!!!! Was VERY strange and unnerving.
I've got three days off Olympic madness and I need it. The adreneline highs and constant heart in mouth action is exhausting. I'd drop over if I had to actually do any of the sports! Weightlifting was mental. They got up to 260kgs on the clean and jerk (that's OVER 4 of me!!!). Very big iranian support in the crowd as they picked up the gold and silver. The bar was bending all over the place and the thump when they drop the weights is super. Had one cover my eyes, oh that's wrong moment when a lifter lost control with the bar above their head and it came down on the back of his neck. Was awful! It was like him being dropped on his neck but MORE as the weight was almost 200kgs. He walked off but was taken for x-rays.
As for running...think I've picked up something. Legs feel like lead and have absolutely no energy. I might get out later...
RS: I must have missed it but how are you managing to get to see so many things?
Taekwondo starts today but it's pretty difficult to work out when it will be on BBC1/ 2/ HD (the only channels I get: no red button )
Hello Robert. Are you a girl? If so then please make sure your tit tape matches your dinky little outfit.
My tempo run this morning was jolly hard work. That naughty Tricky is wearing me out....

NB - Lots of luck, obsessive website checking and being a bum! Got a couple in the first round but the rest were checking the website lots, friend with separate address/login and being on masses of email subscriptions. Have also been to the free events where possible, road & time trial cycling and triathlon. Missed out on the women's marathon though as had a mad cycle in pouring rain Heading down to watch the men on sunday
You'll probably have to go online for the taekwondo. The actual BBC TV coverage of events where GB isn't strong have been pretty bad.
