Ah but theres a 10k in 2 weeks, the last race in the Kent GP, one I would have to win to draw for first v50 in the series (being fit I should have been around the leader in the series on Sunday, he's generally better at the shorter distances)
Steve6, hope you had a better run than me at Tonbridge Selbs, S bends on the achillies seem good (and raises) - my achillies went the weekend before a marathon once Not too sure about calf massage as your using that because your not using the achillies properly. 21 is 21 miles, its under the belt, you will be better fuelled on race day so don't worry RS78, sounds like you are near where I lived, in the N Yorkshire Moors, done plenty of fell races there (fell over twice, once tearing a ligament in my little finger!) Jools, gratz on HM pb
Berlinners, bloody awesome:- Gratz Lev on the pb Gratz PP Gratz on PP Toro Gratz DS2
Well I had a cruise holiday(in Russia) after the marathon 3 weeks ago which made running hard, I managed 1 run then had some bad nights sleep so didn't feel like it then have come down with flu, real bummer. Just getting over it now.
I did the Tonbridge half, really hard work for a terrible time, I probably shouldn't have done it as I haven't trained (well once in 2 weeks) and I am still not 100%.
Anyway I have a 10k in a couple of weeks, anyone have some suggestions for some good sessions?
Does anyone else get headaches after a marathon, I had a stinker last night and still some this morning, though it went after some tabs. I think it was a bit of heatstroke but I have a had it a couple of times before when it wasn't sunny, combination of dehydration and gels, maybe?
Yeah the sea fret once you got down into Margate was really welcome, however as my top was sopping by then from all the water I was throwing on myself I was a bit chilly for a while. Ditto on the marshalls and the chap on the bike was great very chatty, all I managed was the odd grunt, he probably thought I was very rude.
