I have no plan!!! Niggles aside..
Option 1 (most likely): I think I was planning to run 20miles as a training run (circa 10 min miles) and then push a little every mile from there on if feeling good! that is more like a 4:20 finish time. I always am a bit conservative and would rather a great day out feeling great all the way round.
Option 2: Go round with pacing group for 4:15 and push myself a little all the way round.. this will be my best chance of getting 4:15 going with a group... but this depends on what pen they are in?
I think they are starting in Pen 5 can not remember (Annie/ Denise/ anyone) if you are yet to go to the Expo... its definately worth going to Runners World stand and picking up a pacer card. They will be able to tell you what pen the 4:15 pacing group is starting in. I think it's 5 for blue. If you do this could you please let me know too.. would be appreciated. The pacer looks hot which I think would make it all the more enjoyable.
I am looking at my 4:15 pacing band and don't think the times are beyond me at all......decisions decisions!!
One positive for finding the pacing group is I will be running alongside others with similar targets and that I think would be nice
Im going for all out attack!!
Mark.! Your training and race plan seems to be spot on.. so go for it! Are you enjoying the carbs having been training without them?
Sick of carbs already. Monday night is curry and a bottle of Tattinger.
Steak and red wine for me!
What is everyone doing in terms of carb loading? I had a thai curry last night! I was looking at the food in the supermarket and literally hadnt a clue what to get I did buy some wholemeal bagels and I'll be having that for lunch today with some soup and maybe one as a mid-afternoon snck. Problem is, I'm not really hungry. Also, I'm trying to keep up my hydration levels whcih is something I'm not very good at and I'm visiting the ladies so often it's ridiculous
Im not going over board. Good point I need to drink more water!
Spag bol last night. Soup and toast for lunch today. Tonight Prawns and wholemeal rice dish. Tomorrow will have jacket potatoe for lunch and in the evening pasta and sauce dish.
Will had a bagel tomorrow and popcorn for snack today. nothing OTT avoiding unhealthy stuff and fizzy drinks.
I'm moving towards wrapping up my week in the office, ticking off the last few bits & pieces - isnt it strange to think that the next time we're at our desks we'll have done it!?
yes looking forward to getting my life back
Are you travelling to London tomorrow?
Good luck everyone! I'll be on the course shouting at you! Hopefully I'll get time tomorrow (after a nearly 20 mile run!) to make a big banner - it'll be white with "Lincoln Wellington" written on a background of red white and black stripes.
And even on my week in Rotterdam I managed two 10k runs and a cross country 4 miler once I got home today! Up this week at 1.30am, 3 x 5.30am, and 4.30am today, so well and truely pooped!
