Brer, I love it you manage to find races with food at the end!! Best I've managed is a pancake van, but it was lush with nuttella on!
Camlo/SD/Kadinsky, I'm with you on the mileage tally this month, but I have run lots faster this month, so can I get double points or something??
T rex, I'll be there supporting at the Llanelli marathon, Give me a wave!
JD, I've ordered no artic wind for sat parkrun!!
Lol SD and jenf, going to make my marathon ambition on Saturday to achieve a PW and eat lots on the way round and my how liberating that is! I've done all I can during the last 18 weeks of training. About 900 miles, 3 marathons, 2 aborted marathons a fell race and a 20 mile road race (plus 2 sessions of Spin a week) So, did a final 20 today, very slow marathon on Saturday then its feet up time until London. Just a few shortish quality sessions and keep up the Spin to maintain fitness without compromising the legs. The old ITB problem is lurking so trip to killer Physio on Monday.
AND.....weather is going to warm up soon somebody told me today. They had better not be lying or they are SOOOOO dead
When in Llanelli Marathon? No, I'm not going to that one too
Weather IS supposed to improve for the weekend, apparently
Llanelli marathon same day as London, so you can't Brer! Enjoy the physio I was supposed to do intervals today, but my legs had other ideas after Monday's sports massage
jenf- Glad to hear about the wind. No sweeping duties for me on Saturday- 5k trail time trial planned instead
Doh..might have to miss that one then
Holy hell, what's with the wind factor and snow flurries today? I'm emigrating to..the Sun!
I'm emigrating to the west of Ireland for the weekend. See you when I get back on Tuesday.
Good luck TRex
JD potato salad for brekkie?
A good run with food at the end is Ras y Gader the ladies always put on a good spread for the runners. I'm planning it as the first of my summer off road triple if all goes to plan. Bit of 2 steps forward 3 back at the moment though which is why i've been a bit quiet on here recently still the sun is out and the evenings are light so hopefully i can get going again.
Brer - enjoy your PW really envy how you can do a marathon at the drop of a hat you go girl
Hope TRex and everyone else has a great weekend too
Chrissi-good source of carbs Recently ben experimenting with rocket and smoked salmon with a lime and olive oil dressing for breakfast- sounds strange, but tastes great. Now a firm convert to breakfast salads Ras y Gader is a fab run, everyone- and the food is, indeed, fantastic! Might come back this year, not sure yet....
Good to see jenf this morning for the Parkrun
The potato salad worked well and I managed to run the (trail) Parkrun in 19.01, 43 seconds faster than my last attempt 3 weeks ago. Just got back from a piri-piri mackerel-fuelled easy 6.3m run- which felt ridiculously easy Got to be a good sign....
Oh my, the sun is shining and it is warm JD, what's the thinking behind your new nutrition plan then buddy? It is obviously working
Panad, glad you had a good break there girl and great to hear that SS is back on his feet.
Well, my self navigation cross country marathon around rural Lincolnshire yielded me third place, a posh bronze medal and a prize. Got lost several times, grabbed some nice nosh at checkpoints and got sunburnt. RESULT! Acres of food, jam sponge and custard, cake and lashings of coffee at the end. £15 well spent
17.01m for me today, and surprise, surprise, the wind is back with a vengeance (weather, I mean, guys!). Still, run felt good, except for first 2m where the legs felt a bit heavy from yesterday's 5k. I see that I ended up running the last 2m a bit too fast- felt ok though! 17.01m in 1.58.58 (7.00av) splits: 7:34 7:32 7:29 7:18 7:25 7:22 7:06 7:12 7:02 6:57 7:07 7:01 6:42 6:37 6:19 6:08 6:04 2
It'll be all that breakfast salad stuff JD!! Cracking pace as ever. Have you made your mind up about London yet?
My training today-5 mile walk with the dog and looking at a car to buy. Feel smashed, hope physio can get some life back in legs and that I can re-fuel enough again tomorrow. Really don't know how you do it Jason, I hit 90 miles last week for the first time in a long time and am eating like a pig but still it doesn't seem enough. You diddle about with salad and and a fry-up, and you steam on for another 100 mile week. I reckon I might have reached some sort of carb intolerance.
So, the final countdown to London...must be sensible now!
How's everyone else doing in this nice spring weather. Wonder how TRex has got on. No doubt a cracking tale will be told on his return!
Brer - great result you'll have to ain for a PW more often
JD - Breakfast salad ?? i can't cope with a salad for lunch never mind brekkie but good for you being so focused - will watch out for you with those elites at VLM
Panad - glad your able to run again
I did an 8 mile undulating loop yesterday (on backroads from home as i didn't feel up to coping with major roadworks + tourist traffic to get to CyB) and it was lovely didn't put any pressure on myself as far as time or even completing the distance and it worked. feel so much better now.
