great weekend of running again by everyone! Getting close now
Stephen, thought I was you as I approached I remember you saying about the vest thought you had bombed out, showed some good comrades guts to dig in and hold to me like you did as I was on a mission ha ha! Great work, all good stuff in the Comrades bank eh? Happy with 2.51.30 and a neg split. See what I got in me in Boston now
slow duck, awesome! You know your gonna try 3.14.59 on Sunday, rude not to surly?
Fido, I'm tried and tested with ironman and that took 10+ hours do I thnki I'm gonna go with a similar routine, carry 4 gels and grab what there in the first 3 hours after that gels and maybe if it's good anything on the tables I fancy. Average 8 min miles is the plan but I'm just gonna go with the flow and everything crossed. New territory for me, I'm a nervous/excited wreck at the mo.
untapered Manchester marathon this week for me to, so let's see what tired legs hold.
Fido1dogs, Rome was chaos at start, I was in elite but they wouldn't let me in so had to walk all the way around to the back, fight through 18000 people! bad organisation at the start. I am the same, bloated from Rome food and Peroni, feel like I've been inflated. It was ok after the gun. Course had been changed and the last 5k was much harder than before.
