He then goes on to say That is what attracts people to a marathon.
NOT ME MATE!
Two of them were enough for me, even though I performed well for my age I HATED them.
Hung up my marathon hat pdq.
I guess that makes me a wimp.
But my input on Mo is that it was definitely planned that he was to the only race half of last years London. He was not prepared enough to race the whole thing. Yea, he could have got round, but, not in a competitive time, and that is not what he is about. He is a champion. He could also have ended up injured due to lack of the appropriate marathon training.
Personally when the decision was made for him to take up marathon racing, I was disappointed, I would have like him to have have a go at the 1500 and make a success of that.
A good prize to win, it was the icing on the cake!
Good to hear that the hard work has been done on your tooth. I always think that the worst part of root canal work is the time that one has to have one's mouth open for. I dislike that very much.
The thing to think about with the forefoot when running uphill is to push off from the forefoot to the toes, there is a lot more power with that action than just pushing off from the toes. Either short or long hill reps will get the MHR is enough of them are done with very little or no recovery except that of jogging down the hill to start again.
Have a good break wherever you end up going.
No running today, I have my private singing lesson this morning and choir this evening. I have found singing to be similar to running in that one has to train. Also breathing in the correct way is essential to the sound that comes out of one's mouth also to learn to support the sound with one's core muscles. That word again, core.
A good solid 10 miler. Perhaps you went out a tiny tad too fast, but otherwise very steady. I trust the achilles is behaving this morning. Are you able to get Liz outside in the sunshine at all?
I knew you would have been tempted to do some running! Just have confidence in your running and take a weeks rest, with just a few easy 5k's. How is your neck?
Another sunshiny run today, 4.4 miles again, wearing my new shoes. No mud on the main path.
