Sarah Osbourne with Minni
3:32:42 Minni - 26 min PB . I keep checking the results page but apparently it's not an error - it is really true!
Fantastic result for you - you must be elated! I just read your report on your thread. Must have been great having all those guys you know running around you.
Minni- Fantastic time- well done!!
Likewise AndyA and Malcs.
Mr P- sorry to hear it wasn't your day, but sure you will come back stronger.
Angela- Holiday sounds lovely!
Jealous of everyone now, need to get myself sorted for autumn...
Malcs - that is totally amazing. I'm so happy for you and without a doubt there's more to come. Very well done.
Angela - thanks so much! My most recent was only last Sept - 3:59 after doing 3:59 last April. Then the previous 3 Aprils were 3:58, 4:01 and 4:09. You can see why Asics had me in the 'On a Plateau' group
I'd heard of others on here who had knocked similar big chunks off their PBs. In fact didn't you do that Minni? Gives you alot of confidence knowing that others have done it too. I reckon you have a great chance if you get the training right.
Minni - I am still pinching myself. I knew I had a great chance of sub 3:45 but getting close to 3:30 I really wasn't sure about. I am waiting for the post marathon blues to hit but I'm still on a high!
Clive - I completely understand how you must feel. I really do hope you get into York and if not get into something in October so we can all share the Autumn training together.
Sarah - the wind was bizzare. I was chatting to another runner as we went through the first 2 mile section of it and I said to him it'll be great to get a push when we turn round. So we turned round and it went completely dead. No joke. There was nothing. At least we felt nothing. It must have been there though. Maybe we just didn't feel it was pushing as much as we hoped.
Jen was a God send. No two ways about it. Absolutely pulled me up the last hill and towards the finish and was brilliant all the way through too.
How many grammes of carbs do you think you took on? I reckon I was 140g in total.
You simply have to go for your dad's time in York. It's about 10x the field size of my race but much smaller than London so you have a great chance of following the racing line.
No running for me this week. I may have a jog on Sunday otherwise it'll be Monday. I don't have any races lined up thankfully
Hi Sarah - very well done on your race on Sunday. I think everyone on this thread knew you were in for a good time based on the training you did in the build up to London. Take it easy for a while and then get back in to it ! Is your next marathon the Yorkshire ? I will keep an eye out for you at the Sheffield HM as I am going to be marshalling so will give you a wave as you fly past me.
Well done to Malcs and Andy too for great races.
Sarah - been thinking about the wind. When you think about the physics it kind of makes sense. If you are running at 7mph with a 10mph wind in your face that's like net 17mph of air resistance. Turn around and you're running with the wind. Net effect is 3mph at your back, ie. barely noticable
The course was mostly flat but there were 3 hills where the road crossed railway lines and another road. So with two laps there were 6 hills. I kind of like hills. It breaks up the monotony. The hill at the end was tough but it made for a great sprint finish. I don't know if mine was really a sprint or a controlled fall down the hill
I don't have any compression tights so I have been wearing Mrs Malcs tights instead...shhh, don't tell anyone!
Six pack?! No idea. Totally not my area of expertise
carterusm - many thanks. Were you running on Sunday? Sorry, not able to keep up - so much going on.
