Hello. Back in the land of internet and mobile phones though I'm not sure that's a good thing.
I was very disappointed about my Copenhagen time initially but I have a bit of a better perspective now. I know why it went wrong, just as I was about to hand in my bag and go to the start I put my Garmin on - and it refused to do anything no matter what I tried so I had to run naked. If there had been mile markers I could have used those and my watch for a rough guide but I had no idea what my pace should be in kms so I ran totally to feel. I knew that I was too fast in the first half but daren't slow down in case I took it too easy so a bit of fade was inevitable but I am happy that I didn't crash and burn. It was quite a warm day - we got sunburnt - and the course is not as fast as London, lots of cobbled sections and kerbs - but I think that with better pacing a PB would have been there. Still, before London 3.14.02 would have been a four minute PB and a dream time. Almost feel like trying to find another one in about three weeks but will probably just get on with training for my six hour race.
Sounds as though you don't feel as if it's improving much SC - hope the break helps.
Good news Poppy but don't go too mad - 10 would do this far out.
Enjoy the taper Dustin
Any news I should know? Has birks returned?
What: 6 easy Why: why not? Last hard: pacing Last rest: 22/5
I know exactly what you mean Dustin and doing it twice in the space of a month hasn't been pleasant - felt shocking on my run this morning.
Will be a case of suck it and see chicksta. Hope to enjoy it as much as London and a PB should be possible but my back is still bad and the drugs mess with my system so I'm not confident. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
You could you be anaemic - it can take quite a high dose and a few months to build your levels back up if they have become low. Any weight gain/loss, palpitations, hair loss, dry skin? Thyroid problems can cause breathlessness.
