I would go for the 5 days with a short finish because of the weather it will be Sod's law on your extra day off you will get rain, finishing at 2 will allow for some great bike and run sessions in the early afternoon before everyone leaves work, just my 2 cents... Il let you know how I do in the afternoon I'm nervous for the mrs her first race past 10k...

5km County Road Race Championships.

Didn't know what the legs had in them, but went out and gave it everything.
Time 20:32, which a smidgen over 6:30m/m, so I'm, well pleased with that as it followed a 44 miler on the bike this morning.
Won a packet of choc chip cookies and a County Medal for my efforts.

Good luck at the Bath Half all those who are using it a a pace judge for Apri,

Great running Blisters. Well done.

jamie - yep thats what I'm thinking. I used to do 5 short days until recently but think I will ask to revert back. Thing is, I have to go past my work to get to most of my biking routes anyway and the pool is closer to work than home. Flexible work request going in on Monday.

Well done on persevering on the turbo.

Nice one Fraggle - is that you at the top of Pishill? And I guess that's Bedders coming out of T1 (just before TC in the infamous denim shorts??)

(and that hill they're filming at the top of isn't in it anymore - the new one is worse )

Yeah I heard about some big hoo har about it in the paper, the new on is short and steep? Not entirely sure.... Hoping its a good change.

the new course is three identical laps - out Fairmile and up the dual carriageway to the roundabot which is long slow drag. Then up Howe Hill, which is a 1 in 10, but its only half a mile long, so it's over pretty quick - it then leads into an 8 mile downflat to the bottom of Fairmile again - so you have time to recover!

jamie, me and fraggle rode the new hill last Saturday. Its steep and not exactly what I would call short.  I suspect there will be a good number pushing on the last lap.

Cheers for the info I might venture out for a ride there next week, steep and long... Don't you love those.... Nothing quite like wrecked legs for a marathon.
02/03/2013 at 20:45

Is it really a solid 10% for the entire half mile or is that an average? Gulp.

1 hour run/walk done - 10k covered. I'll be chuffed to **** if I could hold that for the whole IM marathon! It was actually a nice day down here. Is anyone else going to use a run/walk strategy or do you all think you'll attempt to run the whole way?

Have watched that video hundreds of times already. It makes me scared and excited all at the same time.

@Orange - not doing a camp, just going to CLS with some club mates (about 15 of us I think) Looking forward to some warm sunshine!

Badger - I don't see any way I'm going to run the whole Marathon at the end planning to walk all the feed stations and run between, they are fairly evenly spaced and frequent enough. Not sure whether to do some walk run training sessions or just run everything in training. Any one want to comment?

Fraggle - I'd go for the 5 short days, more options and its about frequency not just long sessions. I've managed 1.5hrs on a turbo with a DVD but don't think I could go much longer.

Jamie - Good luck with the half tomorrow? Got a target time in mind?

Blisters - Great 5km time and some bling and on tired legs, well done.

I'm doing Roding valley Half tomorrow it will be my first race in pirate colours, hoping for a time about 1:40.

About the hill, Raf thought it was short so as ever, the difficulty of a hill is totally subjective. I was wobbling up most of it at 2.8 to 3.8 mph according to my garmin, for about half a mile. If you go quicker its obviously a much sorter hill.
