Fortune favours the brave so they say, so I refuse to worry.
2Old: going to set off at 4 hour pace and see if I can hold on. Did 6 miles last night x country at a very suprisingly comfortable 8 min/mile pace and leg was the best its been for weeks, so severe taper might just be working. Have a horrible feeling that the wheels will come off at 16 miles though.
kfc: lack of training will find me out on Monday as well but Im expecting it!
Minni: hope the alcohol deadened the pain.
Free: theres always the next one, shit happens.
Mo: I'm not all surprised by his result , the marathon is a race which few race well the first time around.
2Old: take it easy pal
Chick: I have taken the no change to time zone approach, fly in Saturday night and i will stay on UK time.
my club mate amazed me yesterday, he ran 3-02 at Manchester then told me he was going for a PB at London to which i suggested no way, he ran 2-53 which begs the question how quick can he be if he actually concentrates on one race.
in an effort to allow my groin / knee to have the best chance of survival I have been running every second day, with some cycling thrown in, tomorrow will be my last run and then it will be cycling only. On last Thursdays intervals several club mates noted i was limping and there was me thinking I was OK! Two hours on the bike this morning 2,500 feet of climbing and a lot of fun.
