Amazing run by Marigold and Marders. It looked like a tough one. Both those two have had great results this year.Honorable mention goes to EIlie Greenwood who won the ladies race to go with her Comrades win from earlier this year.
20 mile LSR yesterday. Having an easier week as legs felt a bit battered from last week. 8.10 per mile and a 135bpm average. This was what I set out to do so a perfect session and no soreness today. Will jog out a few recovery miles later today
Morning All. Nice running last weekend fellas and nice PB'ing Jools. On a hot streak!
Banksy - good effort in Valencia. Still respectable. You had a death march, there's no way back once you hit the march, you have to tough it out or stop - you toughed it out. Well done, I know a lot of people who would give their right arm for that time. Just goes to show you can do some great stuff in training but the marathon is such a bugger, so much comes down to on the day.
FG - I've heard of people on here converting a 1.26 half to a sub3 - they've since gone quicker at the half. . If you can run a 1.26 half you already have the leg speed to run a sub3 ..... it's more a case of doing the right training so you can maintain the pace for the whole distance. Lots of miles, long slow runs, mid-long tempo runs, interval training etc that's what I'm going to try to do anyway.
Likewise with Banksy - more than enough speed to run a sub3 - just need to put together the training - more long runs I reckon fella, and with a bit of luck on the day, smash it ....
I'm having an easier week, legs feel a bit trashed from last week track session and 17.5 mile run with the fast group at Heathside on Sunday, and various other bits and pieces of training I could pick up along the way. No track this week, will prob go long on Saturday and throw in a parkrun if the legs feel recovered
Ahh Nodster, they send you the link to the "Convocation" a week or 2 before the race. It becomes available to download from your ASO account around then as well. If u got the med cert, travel and accommodation sorted then that's the big boxes ticked. Now time for the biggest box, the 4 month full winter training plan. The journey ..... Good luck to all of us
