I'm only following Andy because I'm about the same pace as he is....

Eating a pie that is.

Andy, 50 by 50 - great goal! You're bookmarked. I'm wondering if it's unrealistic to think I could run my first marathon next year on a similar diet. Substituting your pies for apple pies, beer for wine and peas for ice-cream . That'd satisfy the sweet tooth... might not help me through the wall though...!!

When I first started this running malarky I got hugely addicted to Ice Cream, go for it.

Yeti,

As for veggie pies the politically correct will accept this as a viable option as it does retain the all important pastry factor, but ........could the key be the red meat and gravy.
Interesting debate, we could form some different experimental groups, Veggie pies v steak and kidney v chicken and mushroom then put an article in the magazine.

Liverbird,
Love the easy marathon thinking, turn left at Liz's and go for it, love it, just love it.

I'm obsessed with schedules, I'll write you one . You'll never know it wasn't written by a proper coach except that I'll factor in the pie eating and attending of footie matches. Perfect.

I've just had my abacus out and calculate there are 23 weeks to the London marathon. Just 160 sleeps to go. Focussed training will begin on 2nd January or maybe the 3rd dependant on hangovers and football fixtures. But for now my time will be spent ticking over and doing the last few races of the season, which include the Newcastle marathon next Sunday, Clowne half on the 29th, and Edwinstowe 6th December, so 3 races on the bounce with decreasing distances.

I was on nights last night so after going to bed for around 4 hours I was woken by the phone and Becky from our club asking if I was running today and could she join me. Fifteen minutes later we are on the road, Becky was struggling with a bit of a hangover and kept apologising for being slow but we still did 6 and a bit miles at around 8min/miling. Suited me to be honest as I've had a pretty intensive week with 49 miles before today 90% of which would have been 7 min mile ish.
Will just do a couple of easy runs this week plus maybe a short interval session on the treadmill at work on Thursday.

Plan - 16th November

Mon: Club Run - approx 7 miles - easy pace with club
Tues: Steady run of 5 or 6 miles
Weds: Rest
Thurs: Treadmill Intervals - 40 mins - approx 6 miles
Fri: Rest
Sat: Rest or possibly 2 or 3 miles at 7:15 ish.

Oh come on, please.  This will be my first London, which way do i go at Lizzy's?   I just know it, i'm going to have to run with my SatNav.

Good Luck Andy...I'll be following you all the way through although nowhere near your pace!

Think this will be a fun 23 weeks

It's definately right.

I think.

Brain wasn't functioning by that point. Not sure I even registered Buck Palace at all!

I'll be following Andy all the way to London....

But I'll be miles behind him!

I can't drink beer or eat pies anywhere near as quick as him!!

15/11/2009 at 17:38
Me neither WTS. We need to practice!
15/11/2009 at 17:46
Andy - I think you missed my question on the previous page about your training / coaching methods for other runners at your club.
15/11/2009 at 17:46

We've got 23 weeks CC2, how about interval pie eating and speed session beer drinking?

Do you think that would help??

15/11/2009 at 17:49

There is always this but with only 23 weeks we would have to start at week 2.
15/11/2009 at 17:50

WTS ....... Nooooooo !

It's speed pie eating and interval beer drinking !
15/11/2009 at 17:58

My god Welsh Alex, if I tried that schedule I would never even make it to the start line!!

My poor old legs could never cope with that lot!!
