Introducing the third member of our ASICS Target 26.2 team - Rosie (aka RosieA) Rosie will be mentored by Sam Murphy on this thread (starti...
FH - that's a PB by 21 mins - brilliant
Sleepy - reckon that's a little acorn planted there - just mention he gets straight in with no ballot etc
FH - that;s a HUGE chunk to take off in one go - well done mate
Rosie - that's ridiculously impressive to do two races within a minute of each other in a week. Frightening ! Will look out for you in 5 weeks
Whoop whoop FH - stunning time! Very jealous
Rosie- glad you had a great time - wonder if you'd have gone sub 30 again if you'd negative splitted - bet you would have too (yip I confess, I was spying on you via tracking) - don't blame you though for just chilling and doing it Rosie-style! Can I have your legs please?
Do you reckon you'll adopt Sam's pace formula regularly or just when you're on a PB mission from now on?
I was willing you on I admit when your estimated time kept popping up as you went through each 5k shown online hee hee. I had a day dreamy type run too - ended up doing just over 16 when I'd intended to do 14 - was just enjoying it too much LOL. I'd love to be able to do a 3:35 on a 'day off' you star!
Glad you're taking time to recover - goodness only knows what you'll run next - have you dared to dream up your next target yet?
Rosie - awesome time for such a relaxed approach - reckon you'll go under 3:30 again in 2 weeks time at Mar of North then who knows what at Edi !!!!
Ben - you know you want to do it............could be your marathon debut.........dreaming of striding up the Embankment into loved ones arms................................
Atmosphere was amazing WW, it felt to me that the spectator turnout was even bigger and louder than the last few years, but I think that might be because the last two years I was really pushing wheras yesterday was just trying to enjoy it so noticed them more. Thanks for supporting KateF. Spectators are definitely a big part of what makes London so amazing to run. The course wasreally busy again though. I didn't really get any space the whole way through, even mile 26 I was stuck behind people and had to weave to get past.
How are you feeling today FH? Hope you got chance to celebrate yesterday!
Bows down in Respect to Rosie and FH, well done guys, can I borrow your legs this week please. Managed to do 43 miles last week highest mileage yet this year and the same to do this week, the old body feeling knackered, slept for 10 hours Saturday night after the long run.
Love to do London again but getting in is a killer. Do you get in on time Rosie? Roll on Edingburgh. Still raining here, had enough now!!!
mcs, the whole knackered thing for me was fixed by getting the recovery right after long runs... bottle of chocolate milk within 2-5 minutes works wonders (yazoo is fine, available corner shops and in offers regularly), loads of water to drink possibly with a zero tablet for salt.
Then whatever food works for you...., for me, porridge with fruit and then poached egg on toast. and more water.
Late comer to the thread, what is the Sam approach/ tactic for running a marathon ? negative split?
Noticed of 12-13 people I followed online, only 2 managed a negative split... that includes even a sub 2:50 runner from club who did +7 minutes on 2nd half. Very suprised.
Got the South Cheshire 20 miler on Sunday as last big long run before Edinburgh.
