I wouldn't call long runs nice Kaz. Have now done more than 200 miles this year.

Bernard is doing the London to Brighton bike ride.

Well done T. 

Have already done over half of last year's total.  Course that doesn't take much doing!

Kaz - my goal has always been a 1000 miles.

Evening, my lovelies.

Something unusual happened today; I wrote a training schedule. Spurred on by your musings, Kaz, I thought I should have a crack at giving Stratford Mara a good go. I've jotted down 3 major sessions per week which I'll try and do to add a bit of speed. I'm reasonably happy with endurance; I could do better, but I should be OK.

My target is to dip under 4:20. I think it's possible as long as it's not a hot day. If it's hot then Chester will be the target.

There, I've said it. It's got to happen now.

XB - you cannot have Kaz doing marathons faster than you;-) Good luck with your training.

My cold has now reach my head. This cold is going to make our family bike ride on Sunday interesting.

Go for it XB!!

I made vague mutterings about sub-4.30 the other day but, luckily, only one person picked up on it!!

Hope you get shot of that cold soon T.  Rotten feeling cr*p, especially when you've family things planned.

Was only thinking yesterday that I've been really lucky this year on the cold front.  Had that pig of a cold I picked up in Berlin but since then barely a sniffle. Phew!

Got a bit carried away with it being light when I set out on my run this morning and ended up doing over double what I normally do of a morning.  Slow though so it's put my morning out a bit!!

Kaz - I did read your bit about Sub 4.30.

I havent had a cold for a year.

I read your sub 4:30 musings. My job is to get you sub-5 at Brighton but if you whop the arse of it and go sub-4:30 I'll be as chuffed as a chuffing chuffer.

It was your musings that got me to muse.

Perhaps you did double, Kaz, because subconciously you really love the early mornings

I hope your cold buggers off before the weekend, T. The thought of long strings of snot billowing behind you is not a pleasant one

Oh goodness I won't be sub-4.30'ing at Brighton!!  Sort of more a target for autumn - Abo etc.

I think it was the shock of being daylight - and not being awake enough to realise I'd run past the turning I was planning to cut back on - that did it.  Believe me I really can't see me turning into an early type!

Rest day for me Tomorrow is first tempo session and I'll have to do it early. I'm really excited.

17/03/2011 at 16:17
XB - how did your tempo run go?

3 miles this afternoon in 31:04.
17/03/2011 at 19:35

Well done, Tracey.

I'm tempo-ing tomorrow morning.

18/03/2011 at 15:41

Received my VLM pack today.
18/03/2011 at 17:45

Woo hooo. It's getting nearer; less than a month.

I did do tempoing and loved it. 5 miles of smiles

18/03/2011 at 17:51

Well done XB.

I will be doing intervals and tempo runs after VLM.

18/03/2011 at 20:30

Red laces arrived here too.  Bit confuddled by being on a different start to previous years, get to see a different perspective I suppose!

Nice one XB.  Runs have all been a bit same-y this week so a bit of tempo stuff would go down nicely.  Next week methinks

18/03/2011 at 20:32
Kaz - have only done it once before and that was on the blue start too.
18/03/2011 at 20:50
Only ever been on red
18/03/2011 at 21:55
Kaz - lol queues at Blue Start are way better than Brighton Marathon. Hoping for good weather.
19/03/2011 at 12:56

18.63 done today.  Slower (purposely) than last week but still sub-4.45 pace.

Brighton pack's arrived.  Had forgotten I'd put such a cr*p expected finish time so am in the last pen.  May scupper my chances of a decent time but will still give it a go
