You're probably right Mick, I was expecting a backlash off at least one but they haven't finished washing up yet.
I'd 'finished' the washing up too. I'd left it to 'soak', covered it up with a tea towel and walked away.
Just like a man.
Has JBFAR gone on holiday?
Does the mentoring start on 4th Jan?
Lucozade sport scientist - what is your role in the process? Is it just hydration advice or full nutrition advice and will advice be given on these threads to the mentees so that others can have access to the information?
and err yes I think so!!
Congratulations on getting selected. All the best for your training. I'm at WADAC too and got a club place for VLM and am trying for the 3rd time to break 3 hours so hopefully we can spur each other on at training. Well done on Boxing Day - the speedier stuff is very painful at the moment isn't it? See you at Bramley if not before.
Bramley 10 / 20 is a most super event
specially in terms of pre VLM warm up-
In my opinion- and thats all it is ...
if one is not accustomed to Marathon distance
The 10 miles isn't really long enough at that time for pre marathon
The 20 miles is good for that, BUT, i'd certainly be careful about using to much excessive energy .. not racing it !!
bramley in 2002 .... had my 1st nose bleed for no reason and got followed by an ambulance for about 4m! Great race! 2005 I PB'd and limped home, the next day I was told I had a stress fracture.
My grandparents used to live in Bramley and are buried there ... truely awesome race and brilliant organisation and I have every reason to go back and one day I will!
Anyways have a FAB one Christina!
Happy new year !
I have emailed you though your training schedule for January, lets see how January goes, before makeing a decision on doubling up on certain days!
hope you are enjoying your holiday , don't worry if you can not get the quality workouts on holiday,the hardwork starts when you get home, a few easy days will not do you any harm!
Just picked up on this thread and will be looking forward to following your journey towards achieving your sub-3 Goal at th VLM.
I may well be running next to you as I also have a Championship place for the London and want to run Sub-3!
I should have ran in the Wymondham 10k this morning, but is was cancelled due to the bad weather - ended up running 15-miles in the snow, which was probably harder that a 10k!!
Good luck for the New Year and enjoy your running!
JBFAR - I do quite a few runs on the treadmill, which personally I think is good for the legs. I'm sure you won't lost any fitness. Do you normally run every day?
Hi Nifty & Swifty. Good luck with your sub 3 training. I too am back on the sub 3 wagon, but not doing London this year. I'm going to Llanelli instead as I just fancy a smaller, less crowded one.
Thought this thread needed pushing back up near the top to keep the discussions going.
JBFAR - now you've received the training plan for the first month, are you happier with the amount of miles in it and how does it differ from the original one?
just back from a run wrote (see)
Happy new year everyone! Yes I'm on holiday for a week which is why I haven't been on much unfortunately. Will write again when I can, but in the meantime roll on 2010
