GM - hope everything's OK with you at the mo. Is the Fordyce training strategy you refer to the one on the runnersguide.co.za website? I've got a marathon in the diary for 1 November as I want to get my qualifying time sooner rather than later and certainly not leave it until London in April just in case anything goes wrong.
As the weather's looking good for tomorrow morning I might even head out on the bike for a bit of a change / recovery.
Gul - sounds as though you're in great shape. Just remember to take it easy and perhaps buy yourself some of these:
Sounds like a plan Minni - how much swimming are you doing at the moment?
Jools - I've got a feeling that you're going to be flying round Frankfurt. What are the next 4 weeks looking like?
Hilly 20 miles for me this morning on rather tired legs (not sure why as I had a rest day yesterday) and an empty stomach (I've been eating pretty much continuously since getting back at 9.00!). Recovery run planned for tomorrow.
Moof - I like the sound of that 3 hour run. What pace are you aiming at for MP at the moment? Will be interested to hear how it goes.
Minni - haven't really got my head around a specific training programme for Comrades yet. I'll get the qualifying marathon out of the way first and then I'll have six months to get sorted. Based on Poacher's wise words I'm going to be aiming to step up the mileage and trying to get as much hill work in as possible. Will be interesting to see how that translates into a time at VLM.
