Just a quick note as I have to be in work in an hour.
1:15:36, was windy. I stayed tucked in until 10 when i hoped the wind would be behind us but alas it was still ahead of us! Basically as PP said off the sea and I guess quite strong. Pace (or mile markers) was fairly up and down. Garmin was short but others had right distance. Very pleased with 3 min PB.
Great mileage TR - you looked relaxed and in form when we passed on the seafront (about halfway?) - I was doing 6 Easy in Adios Boosts - not sure I get on with them so will see how my feet feel tomorrow AM. Not sure if it's them or the cumulative miles. Running in them is great but they are not as cushioned as the supernova glides so I feel the difference afterwards.
Well done Jools - looked good fun.
No XC for me as I have Brighton Half with Marders tomorrow (with I mean quite some way behind). Weather has cleared just in time so apart from 66, 68 and this week's 56 (so far) I haven't got many excuses.
I have shifted the P&D programme a little so have had Fri and Sat easy but same miles and sessions were there. I have followed a basic nutrition plan too (Beet-it on race day but also I have had a flapjack a day to "load").
Should be a PB race for me with 1:18:26 to beat. Sadly my cousin isn't running as he had a high HR all day post Bramley so is taking it easy but i'm sure i'll find some one on pace.
I've also been very busy at work with a week of assessments next week after 3 weeks training (me being assessed). Good news is that I will get promoted later in the year which is a bonus.
A very me post but I read through on Friday but couldn't keep my eyes open to post!
To those who have done well, well done. To those who have done not so well, not so well done. To those benched, may your recoveries be speedy!
18 P&D Long along frontn Eastern way then Farlington.
Days like today make it a joy to train for a marathon. Sunny, cool and a good rhythm. 1st 9 @ 6:56 2nd 8 @ 6:25 w/ a cool down last mile. Almost perfect P&Ding if a tad fast near the end. Tired legs to start after yesterday's walking and had to stretch R Plantar at 11 but immediately pain was gone - not concerned. Gels at 7 & 12 to stay strong (I may have over indulged on the Campo Viejo last night).
