Lily of the Valley 4.59
Born Again Runner 4.15
Northern Gazza 3.29.
think thats everyone.....Some very positive sub 3.30 runners !!!
Hi everyone - been absent a bit due to lots of school events with the boys, but still squeezing in the runs. I did 12 miles last Sunday but found it hard, humid and a bit hilly. I'm also training for the Thunder Run in July, so two days this week I've run morning and evening. I'm hoping there's some form of marathon training in there!
Target time for York? Hmm Hmmm dunno. PB 4.57 but I'm not feeling the love right now! I'd be happy to achieve that again.
Swoody I was at Halstead supporting a friend who ran 3.57! I was at Pebmarsh with a very large tub of sweeties. Had a great day spectating for a change!
How did you get on at the Humber Half today swoody? I thought it was pretty tough - hills, undulating bits, headwind, but fortunately not too hot. I was way slower than I'd hoped, but kept telling myself it was just a training run!
Thought I'd say hello as my training plan starts next week for this race.
Welcome Jonah. Now the training plans are kicking in, it all seems very real, and not long away! What have I let myself in for?
BAR .sounds like you finished , well done. Ignore the time
jonah 8, welcome think all our plans start tomorrow. Good luck
Yep, I finished, with a smile on my face too. You're right about ignoring the time - it isn't a PB type of course. Garmin said 293 m of climb! Good training run! Eccup 10 mile race next Sunday - anyone know what that's like?
I was well pleased to get a half marathon pb at the Humber today, especially in the conditions! The hills weren't as bad as I was expecting, Otley 10... they were proper hills;)
Eccup is another tough course next up!
I'm race-stalking you Bornagainrunner, I'm doing Eccup 10 too.
It was definitely tougher than it should have been for a race in the flatlands of Hull. Funny one for me as I was pacing my husband round his first ever race, he wanted to do it in under 2 hours and we crossed the line in 1.59.04. You may have seen him - he was wearing a pink tutu...
What times did you do BAR and Chr1s?
Welcome Jonah, what time are you aiming for at Yorkshire?
Yes swoody, I saw him! Couldn't miss him In that outfit! I was a tad disappointed with my time - 2:04, my PB is 1:56, but I know I haven't been doing enough speed work this year, so can't complain. Eccup sounds tough, eek! It's a club run, so there should be a lot of our club there. Will need to up my pace a bit I think!
Well done on your PB Chr1s - some achievement on that course.
Reckon we should all wear pink carnations on Sunday - sounds like quite a few of us are going, we could all say hi to each other!
Most important run of the year today...Its the dads race at school !!!
Thanks for the welcomes
Swoody- Looking at 2.50ish
Been doing loads of long slow runs up in the hills before I start my schedule, Edale to Buxton last Saturday, fantastic views.
Ha ha, brilliant. I was the embarrassed woman in a purple top next to him
Well done on your PB Chris.
Long runs up beautiful hills sounds like fab base training, no wonder you're looking at 2.50 with that in your legs Jonah.
Hello Folks. My training starts this week for the race. Im aiming for my first ever sub 4 hour marathon and thats about it for me. I run the Leeds half in 1.46 this year, so my goal is looking good.
Im also in the Eccup 10 this weekend. Apart from the hill at the back of the reserveior its a largly undulating course, so im aiming for a good time.
Im also a club runner so the Tuesday night speed sessions are a great help.
The only barrier I have is the slight beer belly ive grown so far this summer, so im off the pop for a few weeks to get down to my 'fighting' weight.
Welcome Sean and Jonah ...
2.50 !!!!!!!!!!! Wow
amd Sean , no alcohol, I think that's a bit drastic !
I'm in the same boat as you since my spring marathons I had most of May off, so I'm carrying a few extra pounds.
nice easy 8 miles tonight in the hills.
Ap66, no comment about Dad's race? I hope you didn't disgrace yourself!
Welcome Sean, don't forget the pink carnation at Eccup!
Gutted lost in a photo finish to a new parent.... Won it last 4 years... Need some speed training not marathon training
great to see thread taking off welcome to all the new people, glad training going well.
I have just been out for slow 7 miles...maybe should have listened to my body and not gone...tired and generally not feeling great after long drives to visit family and being busy, seem to have constant headache. Lacking time, energy and motivation at mo. Hope to get things back on track soon
Welcome to the newcomers.
Lily - might I suggest a week off? I am taking this week of marathon training as I've got a 10k race on SUnday that I'd really like to do well in. I'm still training and keeping the intensity high but I'm cutting right down on the volume. It's only Tuesday morning and my legs feel so fresh and I am raring to race! So perhaps a few days out might do you some good?
Apologies, can't remember who it was that was asking about race day nutrition but I'm also really interested in the answer as I'd like to start practising with whatever they're planning on issuing on the day. Might send the organisers an email.....
