well do you get the feeling the marathon madness is over?? very quiet - wonder how AH is getting on ? When you are back AH can I ask your view on the Florence marathon? I know you did not have a great run there but an overview of the course etc?
not that I thinking of doing another one until at least October/ NOvember....
Have entered stupidly expensive Olympic park run of 5 miles just so i can run into the stadium !
Definitely susan,.. a few tumbleweeds are going to post next its that quiet.
Wonder how wonderful AH is doing with the swimming.
The Olympic 5 mile is the £35-40 quid one?
Not sure about autumn marathon, I may be tempted but go for a few ultras instead. Road stuff is a little boring
Good evening from a tumbleweed.
£35 for a 5 miler.London prices
I've reverted back to lurker having not been able to do much running since marathon day. Poor little legs are just not happy with me.
I was considering the Olympic park run as well, but I already have a triathlon that day and am trying to limit 'event spend' at the moment so probably for the best. I've decided on entering the London Marathon Ballot for next year and if I don't get in to do the Chester Marathon. Sorted. LO65 - you are my new hero. My long term dream is to do an Iron Man when I'm 70.
Never been a hero before!!
Do Chester with me as I am already doing it.
Olympic Park run 27.50 to enter so not as bad as you said .. Will be in Olympic stadium! went to track tonight .. Lovely evening
Susan i signed up for that as well,for the same reason, this running lark is getting expensive.
by the way is anyone doing Bournmouth?
Again well done guys. London is pretty crowded and tiring and this winter sucked.
Wabo I did almost same time as you @ VLM 2010 and then at a flat Dutch marathon that autumn where I managed to stay out of the loos...12 mins faster.
But actually I think you should tell us about your training this year. I would love to get a GFA so you are now THE role model. [FX sticks mike under nose]What are the top five factors that contributed most to your performance?
(FRC btw will be pleased to see that Mo is a kettlebells fan too!)
AH whoa. We never thought you were imagining it but OOO owowow. If I die you can have my meniscus.
Yes Wabo ... What Fido said ... Can you tell us your top five ?
AH you can have my meniscus too. How are you after your epic swim ... Awesome and mad in equal measure
Hey Eastham - I wouldn't do Bournemouth anyway... Run most of the course many times before. Apart from a sea view it's zzzzzzzzz
Susan, yes, drinks on the 16th all being well and I'm not stuck in the Great Pavillion. Was thinking somewhere central... Ideas?
But a sea view is amazing! Stop asking me, because I'm trying really hard not to run the Bournemouth (or even the whole!) 3 weeks before my wedding! Believe me it is VERY TEMPTING!
In other news, I just ran a kick ass 5K wearing my Brighton Marathon finisher tee shirt. Watch this space. I'm just waiting for the results. I think I just missed my PB by about 5 seconds. Felt good though, Yay!
Parkrun, I mean. You know what I mean. Ours was well busy today! It was nice to be allowed to run fast with no-one telling me off for it. Heh.
LO65 - I'll see you at Chester 2014! My race calendar is full up for this year I ran park run this morning as well, no exciting PB (I don't think) but I felt nice and strong. I think I had a bit of a post-marathon running phobia, I just needed to kick start my legs with a little race.
Yeah, me too AC, So nice to pelt it! =)
3 of my quarter mile splits were sub 7 minute miles! Mmm, stats.
24:17. Missed it by 18 seconds. Next time, Penelope... !
Wuh? Penelope? Nice to see you running well Ikle, no soreness in leg now?
I'm with Fido, Wabo could do sub 4 soon... Keep the training going a little the next few months, pick it up during July-Sept and do an amsterdam, Frankfurt run..
Ps Fido, I'm more a kettle than kb fan. Especially with tea pot, milk & cake nearby.*
* as long as my pt & coach doesn't know this. 32kg kb swings are of course lovely
Remember folks, London ballot is Monday.
