looking for tips
Hi I am about to my first marathon in about five weeks at the age of 65 . I have been folloing rw ult mar schedule sub 4hr and so far I have not really had any problems, my big worry now we are getting close is to blow it in the last few week, last week I did a total of 44miles which is set to increase a bit.
open to ideas
thanks for for that i have at times thought it seems a lot but I have followed the plan,and have been thinking of doing a bigger taper than shown.
Hi Fat Budda
Yes I am hoping to do under 4hrs my times for halfs are around 1.45-1.54 i am doing the bed ford 20mile this sunday but I am running it it at a slow pace and using as practice to keep to my plan pace, and not get carried along with pack .
Hi there'll be bluebirds over
I think you are right, this is why I put on my inquiry a couple of times I have felt a little tired in my legs but not to a point that I thought I can't go out. The plan does seem good but it dos'nt take age into account, therefore if I feel if I am feeling a bit tired I will take it a bit slower.
hi Fat Budda
tthanks for the tips but I have not been able to find the over 60 traing thread can you give me a further lead were to look.
Hope that works
hi Theres no limits
thanks for that quite interesting pages, I see I will going there quite a bit.
Did Bedford 20 this week end, but lost the plot a bit I should have done 3 .25 but finished doing 3.02 felt ok but will have to try harder to run to plan.
Yes I am doing VLM, and I am really looking forward to it now .
Excellent - let us know how it goes .
Thanks for all the good advice and tips, and if you think of anything else please do let me know. If you would like to follow my progress my race No 25243 and I will let you all know how I found the event and my time.
Well I did it, not in the time I had hoped for but 4.21.11. having done it I found the amount of runners far to many with some very serious bottle necks at water stations and a really bad one from about 12mile to 13.5 mile when it was impossible to even get into any kind of pace , this caused me to lose a lot of energy and pace, which I could have used later on. BUT ANYWAY I STILL DID IT. The crowd support was fantastic, and it be a great memory for my first marathon, and I am looking forward to my next one. today I feel fine with minor stiffness in my upper legs but that is all. Well thanks for the help and advice, now I need more tips how to keep fitness and and any other pointers to make my next one even better.(I am thinking of Edinburgh in four weeks)
Have you received my report on london , please let me know I am not sure if you get my mail if I do not put a name on.
