GN about 2 weeks out for me ,but wait and see what the others recommend
9 miles done in the sunshine but still cold 1hr 08
JD ok so i'm lazy and different but your pupil is slowly grinding to a halt aswell
GN i basically eat as normal,just eat sensibly the few days before,have you got your pre race breakfast sorted thats most important
GN - well done on the training. I am sure you will do well. Cut back as everyone says. You won't gain anything by doing lots of long distance now. Just don't eat anything new before race day. Don't be tempted to try new gels or anything
Powell - never tried sleeping tablets. Round the Lakes is a great race but take care with the drive and running if you are tired.
Powell - are you the same Powell from the Great Welsh Marathon forum a while back? - nice to hear from you again if so! such a shame about the races and your lack of sleep. I tried an anti-histamine remedy, but it didnt work at all. is there anything herbal you can try? I hope you make it to the lakes race ok. I take my daytime work pattern for granted... It must be a lot harder to train around shifts.
Griff - all the best for the taper and carbo loading.. i've never really changed my diet much before a marathon and try to avoid eating too much, too late the evening before a race, so it is kinder on the stomach.
Ended up doing a hilly 9k yesterday before the gym. The sun was still shining. Must have a rest day today - it was my 8th consecutuve day of running (albeit short runs). 5k race tomorrow and lunch with parents
Powell - its a lot quieter. Good luck with your race.
LTS - hope you enjoyed your rest day. I run every day usually. You have to have easy days sometimes though. enjoy time with parents.
COME ON WALES ITS BEER time b4 my LSR tomorrow
A good day's running here today! First off 6.2m including leading the field home in our hilly and muddy trail Parkrun in 19.44, then a post-lunch 10.05m in 1.11.50 and finally a 4.1m recovery run to round off the day
Well done JD - 3 runs in a day is quite something! 'Hilly & muddy trail' - now I like the sounds of that! I was contemplating my 2nd run earlier but have a lot of walking, gym & a longer run planned for tomorrow, so I did some housework and watched the rigby instead. Wales deserved the win, I'm so pleased for the team.
We've had all weathers today - sun, rain, wind, sleet & snow. Never know what's going to happen next!
Ran the a 5K in Swansea bay today - think I was 3rd or 4th lady home & haven't a clue about my time. I seem to run bettet these days when I leave the watch at home. It was very cold & I needed the loo from the 2.5k mark (even though I must have emptied my bladder about 4 times before the start) so the 2nd half of the race was a wee bit uncomfortable for me
MM61 - hoep you enjoyed the game.
Griff -hope your shifts are going ok. Back to the joys of the treadmill again!
NR - great to see you earlier. Thanks.
Well done Wales. Excellent score.
JD - training is going well. Well done.
LTS - it was a good event and hopefully it will happen more often. Great crowd there and enjoyed catching up with everyone. Enjoy your rest this evening, sounds like you have a busy day tomorrow.
Swam this morning which was nice
