1473 miles I think for last year. Been out for a run at lunch so three on the board and a walk yesterday. Great racing FRC awesome to do a fast 10k then a sub four marathon the day after where was it?
Did my 12 miles. Susan - you did 11 on Christmas Eve! Wasn't easy but thought it a bit early in the game to be wibbling. Took me about 3 miles to get going.
Have also signed up for a silly January press up challenge on Facebook. 1000 press ups in Jan is 32/33 a day. Some mentalists are doing 1000s. There are these loonies posting casually that they've done 500 on day one . I think they need to get a life. But I thought doing 30ish a day was dealable with.
Races for me so far this year:
club xc racesRomsey 5 - 27 Jan Bramley 20 - 17th Feb (seems very very soon )Spitfire 20 - 3 MarchFinchley 20 - 17 MarchBrighton Mara - 14 April
So no half marathons which will be wierd.
Welcome Tiddy Simple answer YES. Its all about pace. There was someone on this thread a few years ago who was convinced getting "time in the bag" was the best way (Hope MR M is ok) he did get a sub 4 in the end but the HARD WAY. You will get loads of tips on here, So as a starter for 10 which marathon and how long will your 5 long runs add up to. ?
Scott- I may do the Grantham half but it would only be a training run. (cant remember the date but March) other than that everything else is a fair dstance away.
AH 3 x 20 milers VERY good, This time you will get it.
Susan Happy Birthday
Join in Tiddy. Your times suggest you've got some good basic speed - it's just that you're not able to maintain it. But that's what the hard sessions in a good marathon training programme are there for! Are you following a marathon training programme?
Can't recommend Marathon Talk highly enough. There's stacks of good motivation on there. www.marathontalk.com. It's mainly a podcast which is fab to listen to on runs, but there's loads of other stuff, too.
Happy Birthday Susan.
Just popping into say hi.Been out with Sciatica a since September but better now
I do 28+ for 5 ks However,Marathons last year Oslo, Windermere and VLM 4.15.
Entered VLM ,Windermere and Chester Marathons this year and started training today!!
Nice batch of marathons there, LO65.
Hiya AH How is it going?
What I would like to do is crack 4 hrs.My marathons last year were between 4hrs 15 to 4hrs 17. My 10k and 5k times do not reflect my marathon pace though.
Hey Tiddy - my marathon times went from 4:27 to 4:21 to 3:57 to 3:46... and I'm a beer drinking old man - sure you'll be fine
Hi Susan and Dave.
How did you crack 4 hours Dave?
66 on Sunday and most people think I am being too ambitious about my times.
LO65 - easy... I ran a little quicker
Oh... and trained properly and stayed injury free
Ta Dave will try that this time
