Oh My Friskney Goodness!
Little half marathon through the cabbage fields near Boston; very flat (20 feet incline over the whole race!).
That's my 2nd best EVER!!!!!!
Baton now passed, someone else steal that thunder with a stonking PB please!
just been tucking into a little Maltesers egg. 820 calories the whole lot, and Garmin said I burnt 1400. Hmmm! Best not though!
Congrats Jim another PB well done.
I ran 17 on Sunday setting out at 6am with my bro and son in law, my bro ran 13 with usthe longest mileage ever for him in two hours and my sil and I carried on for another 4 and staggered home in 2.40 feelng stiff today but I had no gels and only one bottle of water so a bit under nourished really but made it so mileage ramping up with only six weeks to go.I had spent Friday building a 12 x 6 bikeshed so was stff in all sorts of places from doing that too.........well done guys not long now for you London marathoners.
Interesting that all the advice is drink this, eat that, taper that long but perhaps we need to just focus on what our bodies are telling us and listen to them rather than follow rule...... etc. Soon be London Redhead are you just running it this year or knitting too! Sorry I think I might have asked you that already!!!
Whats your next race Jim?
Redhead, you should whallop that 4:50 time!
Mark, my next race is LONDON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
none entered afterwards, hoping to concentrate on (a) moving house (May/June) and (b) getting fast!
Jim I think I meant after London? What time you going to hit for London then? 4 hours??
Did an eight miler last night in driving rain and then hail, it pebble dashed my head, quite painful. Managed to average 8.15 so got round in 1.06.02 if only I could do that for 26 miles I would be very happy but know I couldn't might be able to in a half come September and doing GNR again...........
Go get wet Redhead and all the best to you London marathoners. Must be less people doing sub 4.30 this year where are they all not as many folk on here this year. So many online forums nowadays I guess.
