Struggling for phone signal or wifi on holiday so only just caught up. I haven't been able to see Tim's time but realise from the comments he must have smashed it so huge congratulations
Also to Sense and BK - brilliant.
Fairy logs still a great time and you don't seem too down about it. Well done for getting through it when the wheels fell off!
You all must have had better weather than it was here in Cumbria - ran 15 miles in rain and snow with a biting wind. Cold doesn't come close to how I felt! Still, got the job done and hopefully I'll have some better conditions for the rest of the week.
Martin - what will you be wearing in Bungay? I like to watch the full marathoners go through the half way point as us HM'ers are waiting for the start - you know, an encouraging shout of "only one lap to go!" . So if I spot you you can expect a Freemers cheer! Assuming you go through in less than two hours that is, which is when the half starts
OMG there is a reason I don't do 400m intervals - did 12 of the buggers this morning and nearly died by the end. And that last one was only just inside 90 seconds so hardly in Malcs league....but quicker than I did the same session a year ago so that's good.
All getting very exciting for Tim and the rest of the Paris crew, and Fairyclogs at Brighton. Bet you all can't wait for the weekend to come. Hopefully the weather will stay kind - not too much warmer, but staying dry I hope.
Struggling to catch up on the thread....but just a quick report, 21 mile last LSR done on Sunday, so at least I am now tapering. Mind you I did a pretty swift tempo today, 5 miles at average 7.05 pace and quite a bit of it was sub 7, so not sure if that really is tapering.
We are off on holiday to Cumbria/North Pennines on Thursday for 10 days...hope I can get online to check the results
