Follow Wardi as he trains for a sub-3:00 marathon
Wardi - not sure if you still have internet access but just wanted to say I hope we do get to meet up before we all set off on Sunday. If not, best of luck for the race, the way your training's gone I'm sure you're going to have no problems achieving your target!!
appreciate you are now in London.
weather looks ok for that attempt. I know you can do it.
give me a call if you want to talk through anything, though I'm sure you have it all under control.
to everyone on this thread - good luck
run fast but try and enjoy it whether you run 2:59 or 3:01 or whatever.
Good luck Wardi!
If I don't get a chance to see you at the start, best of luck and I hope tomorrow goes to plan. I'm sure it will though. Your training has been fantastic and it has been great having you in the Dream Team.
See you in the pub.
Wardi ran 3:03 - Blisters ran 2:59.
Wardi is rightly pleased with a big pb.
Wardi- Well done big fella, great pb.
Blisters- Great effort fella. More importantly thanks for your metronome pacing through the first 11, just what I needed!
Managed 2:57 (31 min pb) and cultured the largest blister I have ever seen!
Steve- Just checked your time... want to see a birth certificate!!! Thanks for all the top advice along the journey!
Look forward to some race reports!
Yes running a good time early on is so anti climatic. I ran 2:29 in my first London and it's been downhill ever since.
Actually it was my quickest London for 19 years today and 4th M50 - two Kiwis ahead so can claim 2nd Englishman!
Thing I was most pleased with slightly ropey long run preparation was my 19th to 24th mile which were 6:16, 6:17, 6:18, 6:19, 6:18, 6:18 - shame about the 25th mile though!
I was very pleased myself with Wardi's performance
10ks of 42, 43, 43, 44
Phil Holders! I thought it was Phil Pub. Thanks for your help in the first 11 miles, it was just what I needed. I did realise that you were just pulling me on a shade, so decided to ease a bit. That of course, was until I got caught by the sub 3 pacer 10 seconds behind you. There was no hiding place then.
Actually I'd like to thank both you and Crab for that run out at Glos. Knowing that I could hang on for 20 plus doing 155hr was a real boon. Iron the slopes, watch the HR being below 155 all the way, and the job's done.
One insignficant fact: this is my first ranking entry into Athletics Weekly on a standard distance. Happy? You bet.
yep . . congratulations Wardi . .
and Steve . .
and Blisters . .
and everyone else
Brilliant , wardi
