Well done Carl and Ricky! You guys are doing tremendously well! I am thoroughly enjoying sharing your journies!!
Brilliant running Dd!
6 miles for me today at 8:15 pace. Felt like a really good run. Thanks to the large cake I ate earlier this afternoon I think, I wonder if I should reconsider my fuelling methods?
Great run Will - well done! Sprint finish into the bargain by the looks of things... no pain no gain as they say but worth it to get into the sub 1:45 club Is that a PB for you?
Great PB by over 9 mins then Will Congrats!
Several pints of guinness consumed this afternoon to celebrate St Paddys Day & of course rehdrate after my LSR ... there is no doubt that it does taste better after a run!
Cutback week now for me & then my HM on Saturday. Boy do I need it - quite tired after a 60 mile week.
Well done Will! I can't believe the half marathon times we are seeing on this thread!!
Carter - I will be happy with sub 1.45My PB is 1.41 at the same race 7 years ago. My more recent "born again" PB since my return to running 12 mths ago is 1:53That said I would love to beat my PB of 7 years ago this Saturday and if I'm feeling good will give it a shot... sub 1:40 would be amazing however a big ask for me I think.The strategy will be a simple one - start at, or close to, PB pace of 7.45ish and see how I feel... if it feels sustainable will try and knock a few quicker miles out mid race to see if sub 1.40 might be on.
Ricky - in my race yesterday there was a group of 3 of us and we ran about 8 miles together. We seemed to take it in turns at the front of our little group and I fellt I got dragged along at times whereas if I was on my own I could easily have slowed down. So I would suggest picking up someone running at your pace and run with them. I think 1:45 for you is achievable and hopefully you might surprise yourself and crack 1:40 !
Great racing Dd & Will. That'll be a negative split then Will, which is always nice, and sneaking inside 1:45 must have felt great.
You've not lost a lot of pace Rachel. Cake is good...
