Minni v Dubai Dave
Chick - awesome 22 miler. Good luck for Monday.
Kiwi - nice prog run. Hope Mr Kiwi likes his 10km news!
i was out doing errands this morning. Blue sky and glorious sunshine. So when I got back went straight out for a run. Got changed and out the door. It was snowing! anyway, 6 miles done on a tough hilly course. Av pace 9:20. Loved it
1:29? That would be seriously impressive!
2old - Very impressive long run. Decided on MP yet?
R83 - Those long runs are at a quicker pace than someone aiming for 7:45 pace. Difficult decision for you as I think it's your first marathon and primarily your first goal is to finish and you don't want struggle during the second half , but if I was you I would set off at 7:30 pace and adjust if it begins to be anything more than comfortable during the first half. Even if the pace feels easy to start with do not go any quicker.
taper time, AA! We've all been there before and know we feel weak, horrible and sluggish while taperin. 7:42 is still a good pace!BarryB: back with a bang - goodness gracious me!! That was some run!! 2old: Fantastic confidence boosting runR83: impressive 10 miler. It shows that you have the speed for a good marathon time. Your long runs were pretty quick! How did you feel at the end of the 22 miler?More snow here - getting a bit tired of it really. Luckily it never stays long. And we've lost the horrible wind. I hope it doesn't come back on Monday. Don't mind the cold any longer (used to it now) but strong winds are never a good idea in a race. The course is pretty much a straight line from East to West and then back.
Great 10 miler there Barry!
rest day for me today. Just a 4:25 plank. Last day tomorrow then I never have to do a plank ever again!
Off to spin in a bit.
Good luck for all those final long runs guys. Take care if you have snow, we don't want any slips/falls this close to VLM!
2Old - awesome last 20 miler from you yesterday, a real confidence booster no doubt.
Barry good news for your come back
Simon - kudos to you cycling so far in those conditions!
AA- that was a good paced run, the taper always feels sluggish, so don't worry!
Chick - hope that snow melts before your race!
Spoons - why are you going to stop the planking when you've obviously become so good at it?!
Mr Kiwi was surprisingly amenable to his 10km news, just told me I would have to write him a programme so he knows what runs he needs to fit in before race day, that I can do, whether he follows it will be another matter...... I am rather giddily excited to have a race on the horizon, never thought I'd get excited about a 10km - goes to show what a year of little running/no racing can do to a person!!
Plank's horrid. I will keep up with more core work though...
Barry - Brilliant TM 10! If you can run 7.30 on a dready, you'll be flying and feeling far more comfortable at mp pace outside. You obviously haven't lost any cardio fitness due to your x-training fetish
2old - Great 20. That must be a real confidence booster, pre-taper?
Minni - I thought you said you were crap over short distance? That's a bloody good 5k time.
I've never run a 5k or a Park Run in my life. I've done the registration bar code bit, but i'm still not sure what happens next?
AA - I know exactly what you mean... Decided to do parts of last nights MLR at mp, but after 1.5 miles, knew that it was not gonna happen. Legs were leaden, kept thinking that the calf was "tweaking", it was cold and it just felt... wrong!!!
Backed it off and ended up with 11 @ 7.51.
4 mile recovery this morning d & d.
