Minni v Dubai Dave
My photos are terrible too.
I bet Freemers was a very cute baby...
Oh I think after AA. Its always more fun when a bit tipsy! Calf still not good?
8 miles tonight @ 8:20 and it felt much better than 3 @ 9m/m I did yesterday.
Freemers, O4S and others HERE is some footage of the TM marathon. It was freezing and wet that year but I've booked a bright, crisp and still day for this year.
Bro - well done getting a session like that done at 6am when you were probably already mentally and physically tired. You have got so much determination inside you to work hard, I really hope you have the race you deserve to have on 4th November
Freemers I wouldn't be doing a 14/15 miler a week before a marathon, maybe 10 at a push. Ignore the taper madness demon telling you to squeeze in a few more miles! Don't leave the race in training and all that (says she who practically forgot about doing long runs for her last marathon)
Cheerful Dave - 1:22 then 2:02 - ouch! Good to know, Sunderland marathon is a week after London next year and it's only up the road... but ouch! Maybe just do the 10K then.
Same weather as last year's TM would be brilliant Minni. I can do Start Fitness but DO NOT let me buy any more running kit as I've got more than enough!
How's the calf doing AA? Nothing like a good taper
There's a pub in Newcastle we were in last night that sells alcohol free Erdinger (made famous at the finish of Berlin marathon) They also sell a good selection of other beers including Berliner, Paulaner and Erdinger with a bit of a kick to it. Post Town Moor refuelling
I'm up for Start Fitness - but will have to try and keep my wallet firmly closed.
My cold has developed to the point that I have now completely lost my voice. I was lecturing / giving tutorials for 4 hours on the bounce this morning and ended up squeaking pathetically at my third years who wondered what on earth I was doing. Feeling horrible and not relishing the thought of 50 miles this weekend. I was hoping for a spot of sympathy and TLC this evening but was greeted by the broken ankle with 'Thank God, someone has located the volume control at last'
Evening! Just a short recovery run for me tonight.
Minni - spikes?
p.s. I've just entered the Wales Trail Marathon......
Google it - it says something about being brutal and the most challenging event ever blah blah......
Spoons - Is it just a single marathon? After your multi day ultra this will be a walk in the park, or should I say National park.
OK, I'm going to split the difference and do 12 on Sunday.
AA - hope the calf sorts itself out!
I'd forgotten CD's splits were as bad as that...I reckon that year he must have finished in a slower time than my PB, so it's good to know the really good runners have bad days too . Since then though he's churned out great times and I have no hope of ever beating him again!
O4S - OK, so on top of the RR and the TM you have a cold? Oh well, nothing can stop you
Today is 5 easy for me.
Just watched the TM video - I'm a bit concerned about the way the crowds push forward into the road almost blocking the runners way I think i might join the race walkers at the back............
Barry: How is your cold? Did you get the tooth sorted?
Variety is the spice of life - I have exchanged my lost voice for glass shattering sneezes
Carrot- thank you so much for the nice words. Some call it determination, others obsessiveness, I prefer determination.
O4S- hope the sneezes are the last stage of the cold. Take it easy. Are you sure about doing 50m this weekend? Crazy lady!
Free- nice link, will pass onto Mr B
I am supposed to do 3m easy today and nothing tomorrow.
By the way for those in London there's an Adventure Film Festival going on in Hammersmith. They're showing movies about ultra running tomorrow night. Mr B got the tickets and I told him if I come out of there wanting to do one he will have noone but himself to blame.
Im quite enjoying watching everyone going through their tapers now Im relaxing-even if you havent marathon trained Minni!
Free -12 looks like the right thing to do
Bro-I expect that you will sign up for one as soon as you get home from the film. When you say 'supposed' does that mean you have other plans.
O4S-crowds along the path?Sounds like the run up 5th Avenue to Central Park in NY-it can be inspiring or overwhelming
AA-is Snowdonia going to be tough/steep enough after Jungfreau? Ive watched past ones on S4C the Welsh Channel and it does look tough, steep, off road sections and apalling weather ...perfect
I might try a few miles on the treadmill today-recovery run only
