If it's that bad B2B knock the quicker runs on the head. If you want to keep running then halve your usual weekly mileage and make all runs easy for two weeks or until youve seen a professional. It may be you.need to strengthen or stretch an area regularly.
MS, I would go for it. 1500ft over a marathon isn't too bad, maybe for East Anglia but anywhere else it wouldn't get a mention I reckon you'll be fine. 16 weeks would give you plenty of time to ready yourself so even with a bad winter weather wise you'd have plenty of time to train. The 7 hour cut off gives you 15 1/2 minute miles over 27 miles (I believe it's just short of 27 miles?). You are more than capable of doing that, even with the climb. Go for it!
Good going B2B, fair play to you. Lunchtime I am head in book, food in hand!
Nice easy 2 miles with Mrs JR after work today along the canal. She did comment she couldn't hear me breathing while we ran which i'll take as a compliment.
4 miles for me today. 1 mile warm up, 2 miles and a mile warm down (9:18,7:55,7:54,9:10). Easy 2/3 Friday and then the South Molton Struggle Sunday. Went out straight after work and had to miss club night as my youngest had stuff on after school. Bit annoyed as I was collecting my club vest and trophy tonight, will have to wait until next week.
