Slow, steady but determined.
The reprieve is over. Off to Peterborough today Please let her be in a good mood for a change
Now that the snow and ice is almost over perhaps I can get my mojo back next week, although I totally agree with you TS. Don't mind the cold, but not when it's that damp that it goes right through you. Better things to do than suffer that
Good luck for the weekend Lyndy
Is it only me who can pull an intercostal muscle whilst doing Pilates? Felt it go pop as I was doing some sort of stretch It's not too bad, it's gone before so should only be a few days before it feels OK hopefully, although why I had so have a sneezing attack this morning I don't know Ouch
Hope everyone else is running well
Morning all, so far so good, 5 mile tonight, then 10 on sunday, then onto longest run i've done before next sunday, 14 miles . Just wanted to ask, my schedule ( and most schedules that i've seen for marathon) don't go above 20 miles for the LSR. How do you manage to get through the last 6.2 miles extra? Is there some sort of magic adrenalin rush that gets you through?
Thanks for that Tracey
Just done 4.4 miles 39m44s, then a mile run to the chippy, wife decided she craving chip shop chips .
Getting bored of the ice on paths now, just want to be able to run more than half a mile without having to slow down for ice, and now its just started snowing again, roll on next week when its all thawed
Good luck Lyndy
No snow or ice here, just rain. Where are you km10?
km, a lot of plans do a max of 22 miles. The last 4 or 6 miles will just happen during the race, I guess the adrenaline keeps you going - it certainly will if it's London! I have run them on 17 to 22 miles max training and I have to say 22 mile training was my best marathon, but I guess that was because I was generally fitter during that time.
I'm sure people will have told you this already but for the race and during long runs too I guess; start off slow!! If you want to run a certain time, break down into miles or km if you prefer, work out your pace per mile and go slower for the first half than the second. Never race off at the start
Snow gone here, sunny at the moment.
And good luck Lyndy!
Still feeling off colour I finally had a messsage from my oncologist - sod's law that I missed her call. She thinks its ok to wait until I see my gynae consultant on Feb 18th. I don't think its a recurrence of the cancer but I suppose its only natural to panic a bit. I think its more than likely something else going on so I'll wait til then. In the meantime I should get the results of the blood tests that my GP requested. Its a full blood MoT - absolutely everything is being checked.
I haven't run for about a week and a half now as I have felt so rough. Getting a bit concerned about my marathons
Hope it's still plain sailing up there Lyndy
Tracey - I'll see how I'm feeling this week before I decide on club
Home And it wasn't too bad at all Perhaps she's learned her lesson
