Jason - Hard lines, 83.xx is still flying! What would you have been hoping for, had things gone to plan?
Fiona - Nice 21
HM - Good running
Stewart - Good strong 20 miler there, things seem to be coming along nicely!
AGF - Brilliant running Must be a great feeling to go sub-90
NN - Great running, well done on your age cat win
NP - Impressive 22, nice and fast.
Tek - Well done on the PB, even if that wasn't the plan! Still plenty of time to get MP sub 8.00 though!
All this racing talk has got me excited for Alloa in a fortnight, shame I have no idea how fast I can run
10.2 miles this morning @ 9.12 average, easy peasy. Yesterdays cross-training has put life back into my legs, so I don't think I'm going to run again on a Saturday before Lochaber and I'll just throw in more swimming and cycling.
Quick gym session and 400m swim (as well as a 5 mile round trip on the bike) done this afternoon.
NN- Super stuff!! Well done on the bling
Tek- well done on the 20 PB
NP- Nice running (as always) Matey!
SM6- good luck for tomorrow
Well today's frustrating Half must have loosened my legs up- just ran my quickest recovery run for a while for the same effort 6.53m in 52.45
AGF - Based on the improvement in my 5k time (it's the only real thing I can look at) since this time last year, I should be looking at 89.xx. The lack of fast running is where the doubts come from. Of my last 400km ran only 5 have been quicker than MP...
I'm just looking forward to finding out
Nurse - a brilliant win, very well done Hope you enjoyed your birthday
jason - great run, that's a cracking time considering
Tek - promising stuff, and a tasty pb, nice one
AGF - sub 1:30, chuffed for you as well
My 20M "race" target was 2:45 and to ignore HR, so i wiped it from my garmin screens Started at 8:45 and picked up to 8:00 at around 12M and basically was fighting to keep a lid on it after that. Finished strong with a last couple miles mostly uphill sticking to 8:00 and then a final mile around 7:30.
Overtook loads of runners and had a great time
2:44 = 8:15 @ 80% HR
..... although the first ( flat) mile was 80% despite being really relaxed at the start !!!! That's why i need to ignore HR as i'd panic seeing something like that
Mace - Congratulations ona superb 20 miler....you must be chuffed to beat your target and have plenty in the tank for a faster last mile
(last 13 miles at brighton is flat - so no hills to worry about there )
AGF, great race report and a sub 1:30 pb to boot well done
NN, Another great race and 1st in age, congratulations what a way to celebrate your birthday
NP, another 22 in the bank, and speedy too, well done
Tek, with another 8 weeks of training I'm sure 8mm will feel a lot more comfortable, well done with the 20 PB even if it wasn't suposed to happen
SM6, nice running yesterday hope the 20 goes well today
Mace, a great 20 mile run yesterday, finishing strong and enjoying it too, well done
A small dog run this morning that was laboured at best
Mace really impressive 20 miler yesterday well done and yes ignore the HR in the first couple of miles, although 80% overall looks spot on and you ran it perfectly with that nice strong finish
Jason well done on yesterdays half I didn't see your post last night, strange how these things are all relative that was a flying time and one most runners who kill for..
AGF my friend is running Brighton and I know I said it yesterday but will say it again well done on that sub 1.30 !!!
Not even a recovery run for me today, I spent last night throwing up..not sure if it was the meal I had last night or the piece of chocolate cake I had at the end of the race, the organisers are well known for the array of cakes at the finish but when I bit into mine it was full of egg shell..\
meant to be driving to surrey to see the grandkids today but cant face a 200 mile drive feeling like this...
Thank you night Nurse.
Sorry to hear about the choc cake and reaction. Look after yourself and get well soon. I hope you kept the champagne for when you feel better !!!
AGF yes champers in the fridge and only 1 glass of wine last night so I cant blame the drink..
Well enjoy the champers when your better Night Nurse. I celebrated with a bottle of camel valley ( made near you )....
If anyone wants to see a man struggling to make the sub 1:30 the photo on the top right corner of this link shows me 50 metres from the finish with an empty tank !!
The top left shows a happy medal.
However lets not forget.....the marathon is what its all about......
Well done guys.
Link didn't work for me.
Sorry guys - not sure how to get that to work. Nevermind
Mace- well done on the 20
AGF- DEFINITELY time for a name change
NN- Hope you feel better soon
Back on the case today with 2x 6.5m recovery runs
