possible/predicted/proposed - one of them...
(Sorry, I'm supposed to be working so any distraction...)
My Literature review is way over word limit but it won't stop! I want to get it finished tonight so I can chill tomorrow. Apart from 9 mile run. I have one more amazing book to crowbar in. I have minus 600 words left. When I have finished I am allowed Ice Cream!
My nine is with 7 at MP.
FRC, without those things I would be nothing. You know it.
Hello all. Wow - you can tell everyone's marathoning on here! 18 miles here, 20 miles there, even a 40! Thought that was a typo until I realised it was Martin
Yesterday's run was good - felt knackered the whole way, but there you go. In the end I parked in the expensive concrete multistorey which was perfectly positioned. Ran along the Cam with the rowers and their coaches. Then had to change also in the car park, hunkered down in my car seat, hoping no one came past to get flashed. God it was cold by then. Then parked on the side of the road somewhere else (50p/10 mins) while I shambled round Cambridge, tourist dodging, trying to find somewhere for lunch that didn't have queues outside the door. Everyone wanted to be inside. It was SO cold.
Then went straight out for a post-rugby curry with AR, then this am straight down to the sea. If you've been on FB you'll see how cold it was. I only lasted 12 mins. When I left home it was still snowing - and it was lying - about 1cm thick. But tis done. So today was my rest day .
Well done AH.
I love getting changed outdoors. The surf man always laughs at me because I insist on getting changed outside in a towel in all weathers. It seems the only way to do it on a beach. Getting changed in the car I find problematic as I keep getting stuck putting jeans on. Felt the need to share that with you all. Yes.
Nine mile run done. Felt like plain sailing. Avec Basey on bike. 7 at MP
Sounds nice. Always good when sofas feature...
Finished Lit Review. Too long at 7000 words, but I was really fed up with it so sent it anyway! Hurrah, one job done, now on with the rest... Back to work. Glurk. (Ooops!)
I wanted to get your thoughts on something sub-4 crew. I just did a half marathon in 1:54. According to the the running coach i spoke to and the mcmillan website too I should be on for a sub-4 marathon - JUST. Like 3:59:50 or something lol. What do you think? Is it possible?
Reason I ask is that I did my first 20 mile run yesterday. Now, it was snowing and freezing cold. I forced myself to stick to 10 min miles to ensure I completed it but the last two miles were epic hard. I can't even imagine doing that run at 9 min miles - but then race conditions are obviously totally different. If you asked me if I could do a 1:54 half marathon after one of my training runs I would have laughed at you but i've done it twice now.
By the way the main reason I'm asking is that I do want to do a sub-4. At the beginning of a marathon 9 min miles is going to feel very easy. However, I do know that if it is too fast for me I will die a horrible death in the later parts of the run. I've no way to know whether this is a do-able speed for me or not.
Any advice appreciated.
