tr so we've both definitely got stubby and chichester, I'll probably just pick one major race in march as doubt I'll be much cop after baby born or indeed much liked by the other half if i'm swanning of lots. i guess would want to pick pb type course for 10k or more ideally half in march; any suggestions (i've done none of the above)? wow your mileage has really picked up....you'll be heading into overtraining syndrome soon ps you won't ever find me at a duathlon as I cannot swim and I do not own a bike!
until that training starts I'll just enjoy myself and do whatever races come up or I can fit in. Berlin confirmation came today which is great
TR entered chichester as well so you cannot keep hiding from me....
still not had a week break 40 miles since ABO and won't this week. had first kind of session last night though had 1k, 4x800m and 1k no idea times but felt quickish. took the plunge and officially joined my local club, shame I loved being unattached ac and probably won't get to train with them but need it for london
sorry keen keeping up but work too busy to type up and no smartphone type devices or doomigiggies
ThR still top work on your 10k, beware the overtraining though, even more easy to to when you follow the exploits of many on here
CW brilliant half of your non tried and tested taper; really top result and a sure sign that more sub75s are still well within reach
dachs as said before brilliant pb on the 10k so so quick and would love to see your marathon conversion now if you could be tempted
ES well done on the SB at Regents Park hopefully closer to that pb at your planned half
scott thats miserable, since I had a hip injury in feb that put me out for 2 months I've not had a single run without pain however its rare now to have pains that stop me running. I've just learnt to live with it and still seem to be able to run at a reasonable pace. However your's sounds completely different and agreed a scan is needed. really hope you get it finally sorted
padams nice parkrun combo with animal abuse thrown it...top work
kd that is unbelieveably frustrating, really people shouldn't be volunteering or putting races on if they can't get it right
selbs abo was 2.40 for me so good strides (since I started 2 years ago 3 marathons 3.02, 2.52, 2.40 despite missing london with injury) but not what I was hoping for; this result gives me confidence can definitely push on with quicker marathons. glad your building up nicely again and still fit
Dan a/CD watched the footage straight away of the Ageo half. incredible watching them stream past at just over the hour mark. You're obviously making the point that my time was in no way impressive at all and I should just give up now as I wouldn't even be allowed into a race there! hope final prep for next weekend goes ok and you leg/head/johnson doesn't fall off
SJ i'm afraid I bloody hate dogs, been bitten twice while running constantly near tripping over leads or errant dogs on the prom, wife had skin broken by dog as well and she's only run about 4 times in her life!
LS21 great weekend work nice parkrun and great going long. big mileage already after last marathon. fingers crossed for the 10k
FG welcome to the thread. All set for the sub-3. will be easy stick with the P and D and you'll sail through. Like I've said before only thing I would like adding (only have experience of 3 marathon build up though and only used p n d once) is making MLR a mixed session ie bac style or throwing in some reps/MP into the mix to add some speed endurance but that'l annoy tr i did make the weekend runs 20-22 rather than 17-22 that they have
PP hope all results are normal and you get build things back up again . feel better soon
bains so glad to see you back at it so soon after birth amazed you're already managing 50+ mile weeks. How does this work at home. With baby no 2 due in feb I'd pretty much pencilled in 2 months off running but you're giving me hope.gerat news on berlin btw bains bunion mean turnip if that helps, you'd have a big swollen lump and usually it means you're a lady but I know CW has already established that one
banksy same about the finish but you were getting there still think low mileage is possible but think having 3-5 LSR in a low mileage week would get you there even if its just a time on your feet run.
Lev you are seriously scary. I like you commitment but I couldn't do it. In answer to questions posted elsewhere never done pool running, got belt but tried it and had no idea what I was doing and it was so boring. I will do London but as above baby due feb so next marathon proper won't be until berlin unt
