Baldstan. I've survived for years with the 110 and it's served me well. I've paced many of my favorite races with it and I will still use it on the marathon. But this 225 for training is great, so much nerdy data .... I have the garmin app and strava app on my phone and it all happens in the background. I just have to press start and stop.
Morning GB. I'm not great at sleeping before a race so I like the idea of falling out of my hotel and onto the ferry. My main concerns will be keeping warm not needing to pee just before the race starts. That is a good idea to get the bus from midtown and then kip for a while.
talking of sleep I'm on day 11 of consecutive training days and the thought of running a marathon is making me want to get my nut down
CW - very impressive race considering recent weeks' efforts!
Dan - Hope the infection clears quickly. I was reading a bit about your ultra and looked up some info on Pinnacle Ridge. Looks "interesting"...
bains - that's a bit gutting, seem to be a few short courses coming out of the woodwork these days.
Coro - nothing useful from me on the carb depleting/loading from me I'm afraid as I never do either really (other than carb loading virtually all of the time!).
Mainly just easy running for me the last few days. I managed to join our Sunday cycling group for the first time in 3 months and was quite pleased that I managed to keep up (and at/near the front on the climbs). 56M averaging about 19.5mph.
Tonight I have my first ever Masters athetics event (3,000m) - I think it's a pretty low standard league so hoping I can take it fairly easy before the first 10km road race league fixture tomorrow night.
Ha Ha Padams ..... you lapped me just after you got the bell! As I approached the line it said 2 to go and they changed it to 1 ... I said "I've still got 2 right?" and then I heard you galloping up behind me ... you passed me on the bend and I gave you some encouragement, said something like go on mate finish strong! ... I was in Heathside vest and The Jimbob Aviators . Looking at the results your were about 30 seconds ahead of the 2nd placed Barnet & District guy.
