Minni v Dubai Dave
Anyone wanting a Berlin place for next year there are 2500 places unsold which are going on offer tomorrow 6:00pm(CET).
Cooks - Good luck for Sunday, target time?
Brol - Yeah, managed to get a med cert, eventually, from Doctors.
Hi guys - target time still 3.10, fortune favours the brave!
Good luck Cooks....can we do any online stalking / tracking for the result?
Got out there eventually...and yes, it was cold and dank, but at least it wasn't windy or raining. 7.5 miles in an hour dead, felt nice.
Tomorrow I am having another calf massage, followed by a haircut, followed by lots of TV watching (rugby, strictly, x-factor, IAC...) for which I expect some wine will be in order . Sunday I'm planning 14 miles LSR.
ST- (((Hugs))) I'm glad they have found the cause of your stroke and hope you can get that appointment in before christmas.
Good luck this weekend to Chick, Oompa, Barry,Cooks, Minni??, and anyone else who I have missed off the list, go smash those targets.
I have just completed 14miles avg 8:49mm so I can have a good evening on Saturday and not run with a hangover on sunday, Bliss.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Freemers - I don't think there will be scope for online stalking, the website is very Spanish so I wouldn't necessarily know even if there was! I aim to do a quick check in with an unofficial time on Sunday afternoon tho......
2old - I like it! However, I see this one as my first realistic chance of a Boston qualifier, which has come a lot earlier than thought so want to give myself everychance of banking that before thinking of quicker. Although my half times aren't too shabby, I have previous for significant positive splits at marathon distance..........3.10 is still 15 and a half mins faster than I've run before!
We'll be waiting for your update then Cooks - very excited for you, it would be great to get the BQ time and 3.10 would just be amazing
Good luck to everyone else racing too
Gazelle - I fear I may be doing my 14 with a hangover! You've done the sensible thing!
you'll smash it cooks!
Cheers guys - off now to pick up the toddler & show her the pics of her new sis/bro to be
so your ears must have been ringing yesterday, cooks . We were all wondering what you were up to. Exciting times for the family with little cookster number 2! Best of luck for Valencia. Minni: I guess you've decided to run anyway ... BUT coughing that much is not a good sign. I underestimated a bad bout of bronchitis one year when we were rock climbing in the Alps and I didn't want to miss out on the action. It was in the summer but up in the mountains it's damn cold and getting up there makes you sweat buckets and in terms of exertion I'd say it's similar to a hard race. 3 months later doctors told me I had developed asthma because I ignored the chest infection back then and I would have to inhale steroids for the rest of my life. It doesn't bother me most of the time but when its cold and damp out there I can't breathe and dust is nearly killing me. You really don't want this, so perhaps it's time to rest up for a while? You can still drink, you know ... Becs: that sounds like a piece of good news. Hope the chiro is right.Ant & ST: that's two of you with holes in ther hearts. Scary! Is one born that way or do you get them when you scuba dive too much??Well, pyramid didn't happen last night. When I finally got home and was out there the fog had returned. I tried anyway but ended up a wheezing and swearing wreck. Took about 5 minutes to recover and jogged a slow 7 miles in the end. This morning was better. Fog had lifted and I got 11 miles in with a pyramid of 200-400-600-800-1000-1000-800-600-400-200 in the middle. Did it at 10k pace and it felt . Sunday will be no fun. At least the calf is almost back to normal. I'd say it's 95% there. I could still feel it but it was faint and it didn't seize. So far it hasn't cramped either. Guess the marathon is now definitely out of them legs
Cheers for all the tips about where to run on Sunday morning 2old and FRC, will see where I end up and report back
What's the strategy for Sunday Cooks? Hope the knee holds out and the thunderstorm holds off!! Running in thunderstorms is fun for a few miles but not a marathon worth of miles. You'll do really well on Sunday, have faith in yourself.
Daren - go on Sunday and do what you do best!
Enjoy the do Minni, at least with a meal you can keep your feet hidden under the table!
You enjoyed the pyramid really Chick, good to hear the calf is getting better.
Minni - wear your running shoes. I'm sure you'll have them.
Cooks - best of luck. Go smash it!
I'm on another rest day and missing my drinks. Wine and Lemsip.
140 miles at over 20 mph including a mountain to climb?
Still on Lemsip here. Breathing is not good either so yet another rest day
DD - Excellent ride @20mph ave. I might just give that leg shaving a go.
Spoons - Wise decision, Minni would still be out running, coughing and spluttering eveywhere.
