Follow the progress of Mustkeeptrying, our sub-5:00 hopeful
Silburbas there's a chance that we might meet up somewhere along the course then. I'm on red start pen 9 same as 11 min pacer and I intend to stick with him and then hopefully try and pick it up a little at mile 25? so that I come in under 5 hours for sure.
Am really nervous now - MKT good luck with the change in meds, hope all works out for you.
Am staying with a friend in Greenwich tomorrow and so have to think about what to pack -we'ere going out for an Italian meal to celebrate my son's 18th birthday which is on Monday!
Hey MKT how can you do that? My number is 53302 and there are folks that would like to track me on line.
With regards to your question about nutrition on the way round? I'm a jelly baby girl - never really experimented with gels as I get a jippy tummy and in fact will be taking immodium before I set out (enough said) and will also pop 2 at the finish just to be safe.
Is ironing too strenuous an activity for tapering?
Just what I wanted to hear Suze78 - Tuesday it is!
Fingers crossed for you then too onlysevenmoremilestogo! I am feeling like it is your weekend....sending positive vibes your way
So numbers so far.....
...trig take it easy with the ironing lol...maybe pace at a shirt an hour
I am going to find out about tracking the numbers. People were able to do it for paris and so i would have thought that the same would apply for London as we are as technologically advanced as our french cousins...i will get back to you as soon as i know.
Done this morning-
800 metre swim 24 mins,
8.4 mile bike ride 33:30 mins (15.5mph avg)
1.09 mile jog 11:34 pace with the cycling and jogging back to back. Legs felt all wobbly lol.
1 DAY 22 HOURS TILL LONDON STARTS!
I think you need a GPS on your phone to track people. I'm not techy anough for that But if you do happen to spot me i'll be wearing this vest >
I have been following your progress Matt from the start, I to will be concentrating on tri after London in a hope to increase my 10k speed to half marathon, then maybe try another marathon in a couple of years. My PB marathon is 5 hr 24 mins, my recent half PB is 2 hrs 9 mins and working out my average pace from my training runs I should be able to come in under 5 hours - but that's easier said than done in a marathon!
Staying positive though, got everything sorted for race day! Nearly time for my lunch - Pasta pasta pasta then off to the gym for 3 mile run followed by swim
Sorry MKT I'm 53302
Feet up watching a rubbish movie at the mo. Washing in the machine!
Off sky anytime - Motherhood! Now gone on to all 3 hours of South Riding!
My nickname is derived from Only Fools & Horses lol!
