AA- ouch ouch ouch. Rest now and don't worry about any more long runs, the training is done. Well done on the 10k, great time on a hilly course (in my books anyway)
Chick- when are you off? Are there any internet stalking options? I'm sure you'll be fine. Watch those first few miles though!
Feels like thing are going very well at the moment, seem to be picking up the speed on all runs and especially my 20 milers have been quite swift and strong but I guess the GER next Sunday will tell if it really is going well or if I'm just being optimistic. Anyway... confidence levels are up which can't be a bad thing.
Chick- people can be so inconsiderate getting sick when you're trying to taper... hate it! Hang in there, not long to go now.
AA- get that 16m in!
San Sebastian will be number 9 for me in five years of running.
Things are looking up here, had a couple of 'holy shit' runs in the last couple of weeks so hoping for a good half on 11th October. Threshold intervals done yesterday and 5m easy planned for later today.
2Old- I really don't think it's the ultra still in my legs. It always takes me this long to get my speed back. I've never managed get to my pb shape on 10k/ half mara at this stage of marathon run up. It tends to pick up around now, usually in combination with the weather cooling down and I can definitely feel things have been improving so feeling positive. Doing San Sebastian at the end of November, so lots more training to be done!
9m steady for me today and gearing myself for intervals tomorrow.
