Am I being stupid.
Assistant timekeeper Good luck tomorrow if I don't see you there
How did you get on? I looked out for you before and after but couldn't see you.
My chip time was 1:38:15 so pleased with that
Well done Angela! how are you feeling this morning? After a few pints yesterday I am good from the neck down but a touch fragile.
Yes I'll see you there. I see your chip time was 0.4 of a second quicker than your watch time, that kind of inaccuracy is why I am the Assistant timekeeper
4 miles last night no problem felt like forever since i last went out.
got club session tonight so looking forward to that.
hope everyones good
Jason - Glad to hear you are back in the fold, I often think the occasional break doesn't do any harm, keeps you fresh and sharp and you get more out of your runs.
Well this week has been about breaking myself in gently after the weekend so Tuesday night was 2 x 4.12m @ 8:41 with a lounge around inbetween so that got everything ticking over again nicely and then a 7 mile speed session yesterday which wasn't quite full tilt as I was with my good lady so it was really only the last of the 6x 400m sprints that I really went all out but was a pretty good workout none the less.
9 miles MLR today and another 18 Saturday with a recovery run of some description Sunday and that'll be another week done
Afternoon all, been lurking around for a while but was struggling to find time to post.
However once Angela and I began hijacking Steve Loves Bacons Asics 26.2 thread I figured it was high time I popped over and introduced myslef.
Halstead is going to be my second marathon, and having finished Liverpool last October in 4:00:13 I'll put my neck on the line and admit that I'm hoping to be sniffing around the 3:45 - 3:50 mark this time.
I appreciate that I've set myself a pretty ambitious target but I've been following a "proper" training plan this time around that has incorporated a degree of speedwork (intervals, hill repeats etc) and the improvement so far this year have been startling.
I've got the Brentwood Half Marathon this Sunday which may act as a bit of a reality check, I'm aiming for 01:45 (my pb from Pleshy in September is 1:51:13) and my confidence in hitting this has been growing and growing over the last couple of weeks but it's beggining to look like I may be sabotaged by the weather!
Welcome Kandinsky. I'm also about the weather. Do you at least live close enough to the start that you could get there if its too dangerous to drive? We're looking at an all day forecast of heavy snow, which makes me think we should not risk the drive to Epping forest, in case of the problems we may face drivning back. am grumpy now, as I was really looking forward to a muddy cross country race - I've never done one before
I used to live just a couple of hundred yards away from the start line.
I'm in Chelmsford now so just s short punt down the A12 which is usually gritted!
glad to see another adition to the thread Kandinsky
Angela if its a trail race doesnt that mean off road?? sounds like fun in this weather though!
