Introducing the second member of our ASICS Target 26.2 team - Colin (aka knight rider)
He’ll be posting his training progress and be receiving physio and nutrition advice from the ASICS PRO Team live on this thread so make sure you bookmark this thread to find out how he gets on. You can read more about Colin's running background and goals by clicking on the article link at the top of the thread.
Good luck Colin!
Good on you, KR! Good luck chasing that PB.
Congrats and if endurance and a "never give up" attitude are required for a PB ...you will cruise it !
Look forward to hearing the good news post Paris
Chuffed to bits for you KR, hope you enjoy the training and smash the sub 3:15. As I voted for you and exerted considerable influence all I ask is that you model my latest range of men's toenail varnish & ankle bracelets.
Good to see you have Steve, he is a fine coach and taskmaster - he used to slap my wrist for traing too hard!
Well done KR - always thought you would get through from our group. Hope you enjoy the whole process - will be keeping an eye on your threads.
Well done - See you on Saturday!
It will be nice to meet someone I've been chatting to on the forums in real life!
Just a brief post to start with as busy at work at the moment!
Thanks for all the posts and well wishes so far. There were some very good canidates (Graham, LadeyJadey & Simon - didn't hear much fom Emma) in this particluar category and I'm sure anyone of us would have made a good candidate as the enthusiasm was very evident from all the postings going on.
Over the moon to have got through to this stage and can't wait to get going with the schedule. I've got a lot of respect for Steve and know from last years' competiton he surpased himself in giving advice not only to the candidates, but also to us normal forum folk. Having followed the RW schudule in my first marathon I made some tweaks of my own on subsequent marathons, but to no avail. SoI'm hoping with the guidance of Steve and the Asics team I can get things back on course.
Ultimately, I am going for a sub 3.15 time as I think my other PB's in shorter distances certainly indicate that this is possible. However, it's early days yet and I will go with the advice that I am given and see what kind of pace is suggested nearer the time. I think pacing statergy is a key feature in my race preparation as I think I may have gone too quick too early in previous marathons.
I like to ask questions and I'm hoping to get to the bottom of the nutrition side of things as well, not only in the taper days before the marathon, but also, in general day to day training.
So hopefully this will be an interesting thread with a bit of serious running talk mixed up with a bit of humour & bantor.
KN do you mean Nicole? I wasn't in your group - would love to have been that good!
Looking forward to Saturday!
Haha! Yes perhaps he meant me.
Congrats to you Colin, you will absolutely smash your target, especially with Steve behind you! Looking forward to following your training
