Sub 3:30 Anyone
I did my intervals tonigh, 6 x 400m (1:32, 1:29, 1:28, 1:28, 1:30, 1:28), so thats me done other than a 2-3m jog on Friday.
Geoff will mail you my mobile no for Sat
Take care all,
AA - With the day you have had, I would take a rest day Thursday.
RJF - I will be leaving home at about 10am Saturday morning heading for the expo, and will check my mail just before I leave.
Last run thursday morning 3m max.
Pretty calm atmosphere on this thread - Obviously a sign of well trained disciplined athletes calmly doing their stuff.
RFJ - Quick times for 400's there - enjoy the rest
3 easy miles for me yesterday, no running today or tomorrow and 2 mles on Saturday morning. Can't concentrate on much else besides Sunday at the moment - will get sacked if they find out at work!!!
AA - Know what you mean about blagging kids at expo. However when we go I am as bad as the kids and end up with nearly as much booty as them.
Paranoia topic for the week - weight watching/carb loading - Have been avoiding my usual extra fuel stops for the last few days and managed to drop a pound or so. Great news - all that changes today as my carb loading started at breakfast today - lubberly food every three hours now
Lets book todays wether then!!!
Drk, there's a dog in our village called Murty! My son wanted to call the pup we're keeping Kitson as they're ginger (Russet Gold officially!) The pups are all doing really we.. Love watching them. Can't believe they'll be gone in 4/5 weeks!
Last 30 min run for me today too - now got decision - old trainers or new trainers?? I've now got a pyscological problem that my new trainers are hurting my foot!!!
Really excited when looked at weather forecast. Cant wait now.
Signing off now. Good luck to everyone and looking forward to reading the race reports.
During my training, particularly the long runs, I kept telling myself - 'Train Hard, Race Easy'. 'Easy' is really wishful thinking, but fingers crossed for a good one. Good Luck everyone.
Julie, it's heavy rain and unless you've built in puddle inetrvals as part of training there's nothing to get excited about.
Or am I missing something?
Ran the first couple of miles of the course last night, although I ran the red start and I'm blue, doh!
Greenwich Park looks lovely, all full of portable toilets.
metcheck for 10am is 9c with a 5mph gentle breeze, rain by 1pm though - will be in so much pain by then won't notice a bit of rain. Pretty much perfect running weather for me
Sure I read somewhere, think it was CG, that there is more oxygen in air when raining, so looking on the positive side! Tend to think its true as all my PB's are in the rain.........
Now CT, you will not be in pain, you will be strongly running last mile, or 9:45 start + 3:15 = 13:00 finish, just in time to avoid the rain!
CT - The weather looks perfect to me.
Anyone meeting up Sunday morning at the Blue Start Area around 8am by the Church?
Weather sounds ok, I take everything back.
It's my first FLM, what time do I need to be there (I'm walking to the start as I only live down the road)
Domsk - I would suggest around 8:00 - 8:30 this will give you more than enough time to change and get ready for running 26.2m, running London for the first time, enjoy the experience.
Smiffie - here's hoping - although I will still be happy if get a little bit wet!
Domsk - I would get there at least an hour before the start, queues for the toilets are long (even if you go just before your leave home you will need to go again at least once - nerves!) Also gives you time to get your bag on the baggage truck and to warm up before going into start pen.
Lots of loverly eating today (he says wiping his chin).
OMG only 3 more sleeps.
