Non, je ne regrette rien
Leisurely 5 miler complete, back is sore again so annoying as I'm having to manage it meaning less outside runs and dropping my mileage. As I wrote earlier it's just going to be about finishing for me this year and just trying to enjoy it. Hope everyone else is not having my problems and that your training is going well.
Paris is still a warm 17 degrees I might do tomorrows LSR in the sunshine and try to see how different it feels. Last chance to do a trial of Imodium and practice energy strategy too. Jeepers its getting close
Why have I just clocked this thread!?
My first Marathon. Have been slowly getting into shape with my own plan, that lets me recover, and keeps me used to running marathon pace for long periods. Managed one 20.4m run at 7:44p/m pace and one fatigued 22.4m run at around 8:03p/m. (both with back packs) I’m doing my last 20m run in an organised race on Sunday, and will hopefully be fresher, in tune and will set the comfortable marker for three weeks’ time. Also I will see whether my carb loading and hydration plan works.
I have run a 1:29 half marathon, and a few days prior to my big 22.4m run, I ran the hilly Tunbridge Wells half at a canter in 1:32. I’m feeling in shape – but being careful.
My target is sub 3:30 – but some of my training runs have surprised me. But it’s all about my body reacting in the last 4-6miles.
Is there a brief / rough guide, what time to arrive, put your bag in and assemble in the pens etc? I am a complete novice in this and will on my own so wondering what the norm is.
