TJB - aim 2:55:52 it read the same upside down on my fridge magnet and so I consider it to be my best time.
TR - very handy if you knock it off and then replace it quickly and carelessly if you are in a rush. (did I mention? great PB by the way)
as long as it ain't a 03:00:30 or even worst a 3:00:03 - i'll be happy.
Frankfurters. I hope you don't get the wurst possible weather conditions for the race this weekend. Have a cracking run you lot, Jools you 47kg bag of dynamite! I thought I was light at 71/72 but then on this thread I'm the company of the lean mean running folk making me one of "slower heavy ones!" . Enjoy the lovely beers after you lot ....
TJB - I've just realised that your Abingdon time is palindromic (give or take a zero). This pleases me somewhat. Can you try and run 2:59:52 at Boston please? I'll take 2:58:52 if that feels more comfortable. Thanks!
you learn a lot on this thread. Back in winter I went on a 15 mile tempo run with the speedster that is TD and he taught me the shoe lace tuck into each other technique to stop them flapping around. I do it all the time now
I had a great run at Abingdon on Sunday. Ran a pb in 3:02:23. Couldn't have done any better on the day. Preparation was not perfect, but the conditions were good and I showed up in as good a shape as I could have been and executed well.
No more road races until the spring ..... and the Big One!
btw I managed to update my Boston entry with the new time, it might move me up a starting wave. As I'm flying home in the evening, I'd like to start as high up as possible. If anyone does a marathon PB between now and then, Its worth letting them know.
