Mathschick Well done on your Half Marathon in Barcelona I do find that there seems less crowd support in foreign races and defo no charity folk although I can say the crowd was good at Lisbon however patchy at bits. Prague was much the same
Well I did my Half marathon on Sunday and the weather conditions were brutal. Very strong wind,gales icy cold sleet and snow plus a bit slippy underfoot and a very undulating course As I said earlier I wasn't looking to PB but to do it my hope to be marathon pace and finished in 1.58.16 so was more than happy given the tough course and weather. Really only 3 mins off my PB and was 7 th in my age category out of 35.
Hope everyone is well. its still not great weather wise up here
AF Wow impressive mileage I too have a half marathon on the 22nd...its a hilly one so wont be fast. I am going to do 16 miles tomorrow or Sunday and then do my half the following week which will be a cut back in mileage week for me anyway so the half will count as my long run for that week then ramp up the distance the following week.
My weekly mileage this week is 32 miles. The most for a long while...in fact I am up to 60 miles for February already whilst my total February miles last year was 67
Did my track session last night 1km repeats with 60 seconds recovery..I did 6 Short 3 mile recovery jog this morning.
Hope everyone is ok and yes you are a naughty AF for forgetting about us.
