Unsure if my diet experiment of sucking M&M's individually rather than scoffing the lot in one mouthful will work. 8m today on a dog-run with 5m fast. Last piece of 'quality' running until the GC Marathon, less than 12 days away.
PD - Yes, agree with PH cycling advice, keeps the ticker ticking, takes calories away and you can catch up on your movies.
Nice one Cal, always good to be ahead of the game so early in the year.
Congrats MsE on the FV40 on what seemed a tough run
Taper time for Gran Canaria marathon so 60m followed by 45m this week with 15m run done today being 15 laps of a large grassy field - bit tedious but a soft surface and good for the legs. Now time to lose a few pounds.
[bGemma/b] A good answer above but do take an energy drink with you, a specific sports drink or a homemade mix - orange juice and water - works for me. Saying that it is so variable as ran 19 miles yesterday on 500 ml of water.
Hope everyone got out an about over the Christmas period, 58 miles for me, and now tapering for Gran Canaria on the 23rd, which feels good as -5 here today (Cornwall)
MSE I am 52 so everything is not as supple as it was, but a range of ills peaking with stress fractures - 2 years out! These days the background gripe are sore knees (but a daily ibruprofen, flexiseq gel and fish oil keeps the lid on this). I should stretch more really.
7 wet and windy miles today with the pooch, as I look toward a 20m long run tomorrow or Christmas day as 4 weeks away from a date with the Gran Canaria marathon.
Good afternoon all, another one to climb aboard. Have this as my best attempt at a sub 3 this year since the last one in 2007! - and like one or two others will also run VLM 3 weeks later (hopefully mirroring running VLM earlier this year and running the Exeter marathon 3 weeks later in the exact same time 3:07.21)! Currently in reasonable shape as just run the Cornish marathon in 3:12 which is as beautiful as it is bumpy, so looking forward to the flat stuff. Just need to avoid overdoing it and getting injured which has been the bain of my marathon running over the past decade.
