whlst not condoning such actions...it was good to have a pint and a half of guinness on the way round on Sunday (as promised)

knowing that a fast time was off the cards, i didn't wear a watch, took a camera and some money for beers.

Makes a hell of a difference to the enjoyment quotient, i can tell you.

(for those regarding this as the height of lunacy, i would point out that andy blackford of RW has also run a race in a similar style - not that he's condoning it either, i suspect - "In search of the carved block", midsummer 19 miler in the south east: 5 pubs plus a cream tea.... sounds great!!!)

can of Heineken at the Kings Arms just before Tower Bridge (no canned Stella), and a can of Stella at RW Support Group @ mile 18, which I shared with a Wonder Woman.

The Heineken made an interesting shandy mixed with Lucozade Sport (yeccchh!)

i had a pint of guinness at "The Grapes" - scene of last year's imbibing, as promised, just for old times' sake.

Hello Wolf, glad you have a good day.

Could you publish your training schedules for this style of race please? Sounds far more enjoyable than the stuff recommended on the Training thread.

training schedule....

100 miles in jan

nothing in feb

nothing in march

6 runs in april (total 37 miles)

4 pints of IPA the afternoon before the race, to get the throat loosened up

there you go

4'53 and no-ones complaining

(makes me wonder why i bothered with the 500+ miles of training two years ago to save 55 minutes)

Excellent. Just 4 minutes faster and I'd get a PB!

well now you know the secrets i think that anything may be possible.

it's just a case of knowing what you want (in this case 1.5 pints fo guinness) and having the confidence to go for it!!

will i see you at windsor again this year??

Quite possibly. My workmate who sees fit to challenge me at Windsor has already entered. I can report he has not beaten me yet and was also 15 minutes slower than my time at FLM on Sunday :)))

Rather like this new training regime.
