Congrats to all who have completed the race and all the very best to you Malcs on your recovery....
Fantastic weekend in York and a great race. Managed a PB of 3:54 with negative splits on 11 out of the last 13 miles.
I just needed to break the psychological 4hr barrier...Now I can really "go for it" as I know that training hard and well I am capable of running sub 4 no problem.
Now working out plans to break sub 42min 10Km, sub 1:40 half and sub 3:45 marathon....Hard work ahead....
reikirabbit: will you be following the RW's 4hr pacemaker? I will be looking for you 1261....I am 2693, probably with a grey throw away jumper at the start.....
Anyone trying to break 4hr mark?
I am staying at Sleepers Guest House (Shipton Rd, YO30 5RN). Anyone around willing to share a cab??? Otherwise I think best bet is to walk 1.9miles to the train station and get the shuttle.....
5mi tonight then that is it.........might do a 10-15min on Saturday to move the legs (or maybe not as I will be sightseeing)....
Malcs: hope you recover and feel good on Sunday.
Followed a sub 3:45 plan, but thinking of following the 4hr pacer. Feeling strong....Just the mental side of this taper phase which is really hard.
Getting into York in Saturday morning by train...Hope to do some sightseeing and eating/drinking throughout the day.
