For anyone trying to crack the 3 in any marathon anywhere in the world
No, mine's been processed and I've entered. Did you not get a response confirming they had received your entry? If not, I'd contact them and see if there's been a problem, CW.
no Abo reports yet ?
CC - cant see the boots from that far away !
Padams - a good weekends training there.
CW - give them a chance, thats was less than a week ago.
Thought I should up the running a bit so 12M up and over the hill (and back) early today, legs didnt like it, seemed a long way.
TR - the boots would have filled up with water, so I opted for shoes with scary metal bits sticking out of the soles for that one. The goth thing must be catching on though, I saw quite a few other runners today in similar footwear.
CW - I got the link sent through to pay the day after I submitted my application. Check your spam.
Well done to Marigold and Marders on their sub-3's! And well done to Wardi on the sub-20.
I spent a glorious morning today marshalling our club's main fundraiser, the Green Drive 5 which was won by Anthony Ford in a pretty impressive 24:17.
This afternoon I headed out for 11 with 4 @ MP which seemed to confirm that I'm over whatever it was that caused me shin issues last weekend. 15 for the week, but not concerned as I only had 35 planned anyway.
Into the final week now, and a question. Do those of you who do carb depletion do it in the hope that it benefits the carb load, or just to try and lose some weight in the final week? The science seems to be in favour of just decreasing training volume and increasing percentage of calories from carbs.
Stunning performances from Marigold and marders. Managed to 'follow' some of it, and it sounds like Marigold paced it to perfection.
Al_P - you misread. marders was 3rd - the link doesn't show 2nd as he isn't a UK resident (but does have 3 alongside marders name). Still amazing though.
Wardi - brilliant!
Well done also B_Kins.
Good news on the shin Andy D.
Amazing results from northern Italy yesterday....lots of very hard work and talent can go a long way. Hats off to both...
LS21 that's superb mate and after all you have been through a very special day. Well done! I want to write more but somehow they seem trite. You know what that has meant. So, huge congratulations. I'm looking forward to seeing you some time for a beer!
LS21 - great stuff, well done!!! So pleased for you...you've had a really tough time, it is good to hear that running can you smile (and other people cry!).
I'd cry as well if I got beat by LS21.
Fcuking brilliant mate. Nailed one good and proper. Reckon Nige ran most of the second half though - where did that neg split come from??!
I must follow suit in giving LS21 a big pat on the back.
Not many of us can do sub-3 and negative split
Very nice negative split, LS21. Take that over the 4 seconds, any day, surely?!
Quality stuff LS21. Sounds like a good day.
Nice one LS21, top work..
18 yesterday, glad I didn't race abo
SL, You made a tough but very sensible call. It will work out well for you I'm sure. Some quality stuff over the next few weeks culinating in you nailing the half next month. Train smart.....
Fantastic, well done LS21.
(Don't remind me of selbs' last performance at Abo though, I was a bit too close to it at 15-ish miles in that ditch :- ).
Thanks on the feedback re champs entries everyone. It seems their system doesn't like sending to my usual email address (they retried and I still didn't get it), but it got to my work email instead OK so I've paid up and entered now. But of course I might have got a slightly lower number without that hitch ;- ).
LS21 - well done again mate on a very nicely executed race.
I DNF'd at Abo. Simply not fit enough for sub 3 running yet. Hit a wall at halfway (1.29) and knew it wasn't going to happen, so jogged to 18 and dropped. Not a big deal, as wasn't a target race. Will head off to France in two weeks with a plan to run no quicker than 3.15 pace, and just enjoy a new marathon in a nice place. Loads of work to do over the winter. Strangely looking forward to it.
On the plus side, my bro finished his first marathon in 5h04 which he was well pleased with. All relative I suppose.
