Minni v Dubai Dave
But if you take my session tonight you will also have to get up at 4:30am to get a 10 miler in before you get the kids ready for school, prepare the evening meal and be out the house for 7:30am.....
- christ! i can just about handle the cat! even then he gets the better of me occationally!
MrZ- 15?thats where you are going wrong, think you are only doing 13 like I did today,then do two more to cool down.Easy
Minni-good luck with all that-Im watching England tonight with my feet up, resting for my LR tomorrow.
i like your logic
if i chuck in a 2 warm up - then it's only 11! Hurrah!
Shildon - welcome, I ran 2 maras 5 weeks apart last autumn and raced both.Even though the second was only 3 mins slower than the first the last 3 miles were very grim.
Zuvai - Very nice tempo, did n't you say a few pages ago you were struggling with speed endurance, what's your VLM target? Enjoy your 15.
7 miles for me, very cold wind, inlcluding 4 miles at 7:06 avg.
Shildon runner - I've done a few back to back marathons with varying results, each time though it's taken me too long to recover after the second. I actually dropped out of the Town Moor marathon last year as it was 4 weeks after Berlin and I could feel that familiar goosed feeling in my legs and didn't want to have 3-4 months of mediocre training and racing. My best double was 3:29 / 3:33 but that was with 6 weeks in between. There's only a week between London and Sunderland, do you really need to do it? There's always the half or the 10K?
Minni - I usually enjoy intervals too
Hi Shildon - I also dropped out of North Norfolk marathon last year, a few weeks after London for the same reasons as Carrot. I've done plenty of back to back slow marathons and they are fine.
tonight was the same as last night: 30 mins elyptical + 30 mins rower + 30 mins weights / core
Simon - you use the rower a lot don't you? Do you wear gloves? I am developing blisters on my fingers
AA - Probably just 5 miles slow tomorrow and that will be it until Sunday, been getting a bit ahead of plan.
