Follow Wardi as he trains for a sub-3:00 marathon
you were inside the standard so should technically have got in (you are in in the main body of results) which go to 3:04:59 but the Vets results were manually typed by the Vets reporter and he obviously decided 50 was enough in each age group. the M50 standard is actually 3:10.
I think we should do more next week.
Is this any use to you?
I have just found out that good for age entry must be in by 29th August this year. Robin Hood and Wolverhampton are now too late! I don't think I will be able to run a marathon between now and then. I think I'm going to enter Edinburgh next year as good for age as they take a sub 1:25 half as good for age and I have a 1:23.
5 miles today @7:45. All feels good.
Shall be signing off for a wee while, as I'm off to Iraq for a few months. Will try to keep the running up whilst away, however, I think the heat will conspire against me.
Hope to run a bunch of 10Ks (get my first official sub 40) and halfs (push for a sub 80) towards the end of the year. Will take advantage of my GFA place in next years FLM (target tbc!).
Wardi- Well done on a fantastic PB. Best wishes for the wedding and a fantastic honeymoon! I'm sure you will keep your stamina up!
Steve- Thanks for all your wise words and giving me confidence, a sub 3 mara is possible on low milegae training!
Gavin- Good luck on going sub 3! I'm sure you'll smash it next time!
Blisters- Great to meet you at the London. Thanks for your steady pacing through the first half, no doubt you stopped me from blowing up in the second half! Look forward to seeing you at a local event.
Not sure which forum you guys will be on when I get back... so I'll do a little detective work!
Happy racing folks,
