Day one for me, but I have to run this evening. Annual fitness "bleep test" tonight at work. Not really bothered - it's an easy jog.
I will run every other run by the book and to the correct schedule.
My only concerns are injury, illness and icy roads.
To everyone starting 18 week plans today for the 13th April - good luck!
I hope your training goes well. Let's do this marathon thing!
13s shouldn't be much different to 12s as they're just this years release. I've gone through a few pairs of GTS 10,11 and 12 and they've been pretty much identical - which I like!
I've just bought some 13s and hope they're the same.
I try not to use gels on training runs, except for on some of the ones with marathon pace elements.
Trying Clif Shot Blocks this time.
Icklemichael, sub3 would have been great, and I was on the pace until mile 23, but I had only set out to get a London GFA, which I thought was 3:10, but turned out to be 3:05, so I'm glad I went balls-out on the day!
More than happy with 3:01, having trained 3:10.
