My fav race today and weather is perfect (Stamford 30K) Wish I was there
Hope the runs go well today all. Training seems to be on track for all Lets keep it that way. Im not going long this weekend as I have a race next Saturday so lets just call it a mini taper
I bet Martin's got a sneaky marathon slotted in - he's sounding shifty .
Ikle - it'll pass. Your legs are probably still adjusting to their new running style. This is the tricky thing about a long marathon training prog, isn't it? It just goes on and on and on. But consistency is key. Just keep doing it and you'll come out the other side even stronger.
Wonder how the Brighton half went?
My race was SO civilised today. Didn't even have to leave home until 8.30. Joined up with a charabanc of friends and met even more at the race. Two laps in the sunshine. Steady Eddy, with a guy who's never run past 16 before and is doing his first marathon at VLM. Had to hold him back at the start but he did really well up to 16 miles, then started to flag a bit. Between 10 and 10.15 m/m. Towards the end I kept thinking he was with me and I'd dropped him so I looped back to get him. Made me feel great because I know that, if I'd had to, I could have finished nice and strong in about 3.15/3.20. The cheeky bugger put on a bloody sprint in the last 400m though which I thought was a bit rude. But I was feeling great so I made sure we finished together.
If anyone's vaguely in the Reading ish neck of the woods, I'd heartily recommend it as a great 20 miler. There's a 10, too.
Forgot to stop my watch so actually don't know what time I did. The clock said 3.25 but chip might be more like 3.23.
J'aime les oeufs crus trop ... non!
Not much running heroics from me... so that's it really
Scott - was happy with my time as that what all I was doing - getting to the end with some mates and in the end I decided to wait for the slowest most heroic mate - and I did 5 miles cross country saturday - I did a hilly half two weeks ago in sub 2 hours and my half pb is 1 hour 45 - so its all about the day and the point in training etc etc.. it was a glorious day - bright sunshine and cool breeze - sea all the way - what more could you want.
jetting off to Budapest now for three days with hubby and two boys... lovely .. no running for me at all.... rest its called
