Paddy thats a fantastic time and a massive improvement from 2009 which I see was another great time and sub 3hrs. I would be happy with 2:59 but I do have another time in my head if everything is 100% on the day. My pb is 3:02 which I did last year and this will be my last chance before the big 50. But there is a lot of people over 50 running sub 3 hrs. I liked the video from last years Dublin Marathon great for watching club mates.
USB not much in RW about the super six but plenty about another group of runners doing other marathons, think your in a couple of photos.
Jason nice running mate.
Just entered Chester and Snowdonia
3 weeks apart
New to runners world and looking for a bit of advice. I have set myself a couple of challenges for this year the Leeds half marathon in May and the Chester marathon in October. I currently run twice a week, a 5-8k and a 10-15k. I also cycle to work 4 or 5 times a week (when it's not snowy/icey), 20-30 miles per day.
I have been looking at training schedules for half and full marathons and they all seem to assume that you are not really doing any other exercise, unless they include a bit of cross training, especially on rest days when in reality I am likely to be cycling on rest days.
Does anyone have any tips on the training schedule and how I should account for the cycling and other exercise?
Hi Andy & welcome to the thread.
Well done & good luck with the docs appointment. Hopefully they should be able to get you in quickly.
Just tried to drive & couldn't initially open the car door but once it was freed off could do. Managed to get the seat belt on with some discomfort & turn the car on but when it came to moving the wheel had problems turning it to the right so that didn't progress any further. As for typing with both hands that is proving to be very painful even for this short bit so back to the docs tomorrow (should be able to get an appointment fairly quickly) and one handed typing.
If I'm doing a lsr of 6 miles or more I will have a sports drink otherwise it's just water.
Thanks. I bet you're happy with the 8 miles.
HY4 and Mr S- good luck at docs
Mr S- nice little jog!
AGF- good run
Chick- nice running- all miles in the bank. I try to use the same sports drink as the event on LRs and gels.
20.33 for me today (20 lr and 0.33 warm down) 8.05 av pace for the 20
HY4 frustrating indeed
Hello Paddy, SL and Andy
Mr Spoons definitely worth getting checked out. Hope all is well.
chickadee at least you know why it didn't go well. I have decided to try and use something on my LSRs mainly because I don't want to suffer stomach problems again like I did at Newcastle. Although I think part of it was the stress beforehand but still I want to try and toughen my stomach up as it is something that I do seem to suffer with.
USB hope your niggle is improving.
Gave the parkrun a miss yesterday as the wind and rain made a lie in a better option and just went out for a steady run later. Two and a half hours this morning in much better conditions. The longest run since Newcastle and felt good. Total 59 miles for the week including my obligatory rest day
Did you decide on a schedule Mr Spoons or you own plan? Not just the miles but how you run them that is important I think.
Well done on the weight loss jasond - that is a lot in a week.
