A great prize & challenge
although dont thing 'blare which project' I wont help!!
I magnificently fell in broad daylight on Sunday- the bruise down my leg was (and stll is)very impressive! And to think my initial thought was "oh no! Target 26,2!" As it happens it hasn't put me out of action at all and am managing to pick my speed back up after 4 months of marathon traning. I LIKE speed, there's something about the warm glow that last throughout the day.....but I did like marathon training too....ASICS guys...are you listening????
Can you believe my mobile (battery) was flat the whole of yesterday, so on getting home from work in the Iate afternoon, I charged it and almost fell off the bed when I listened to a voice message that had been left at 12pm! I must say I was HIGHLY motivated ALL of a sudden to go for a run early this morning Not even the dark or fresh morning temperature could keep me in bed this morning!
A quick question to all those experienced marathoners out there....would you expect your 5k time to come down much after preparing properly for your first marathon? (Assuming starting with the ability to run a decent half marathon time). Thanks.
sills, depends how good it was in the first place. If you were a fun runner definitely, mid pack probably, fairly quick, possibly is my view.
Sills, it makes me marketly slower over 5km (PB's 5k 16:50 & Mar 2:43), I put this down to different session that I run specifically for the two different distances, that I'm always knackered when I'm marathon training and my stride length shorts for a marathon (by 2" approx).
However I agree with the points Stray Celt made as it is likely most people would say I fall into fairly quick
22 mins for 5KM and 4.08.31 for the marathon I have some work to do on both!!! Asics I need your help please
I'm still waiting for the call and I'm guaranteed a pb at the boot camp 5k as I've never run that short a distance
I can’t help checking my phone/email every 5 minutes since this morning but haven’t heard anything from either RW or ASICS. Good luck to everyone who has applied!
Me too Tina Le 6 Checking email and cell. I know with Asics Target I can make new PB.
The waiting is over for me, as it is nearly the end of Friday. May be better luck next time then!
remenber to stay around and join in one of the groups.....
Just had a tweet saying that 1,700 applicants have been narrowed down to 50 who have been sent emails re bootcamp...
Searches inbox in vain
Congratulations to all those who got through and for those that didn't, look out for the forum 6 or follow one (or more of the threads) I know I will
Congratulations to everyone who's been selected for the bootcamp. Have a great day. Thanks Choisty for the reminder to look out for the forum 6. To console myself I have signed up for 5 BMF boot camp sessions. That'll toughen me up a bit for my next 5K pb I hope. It's been a few years so may take a bit of work.
