Skinny - McMillan is actually under 6:30 but that's sub 2:50 and i can't entertain that thought.
Bob - once i loosened the laces it was no more than a couple of days until it went completely.
Lit - if it's the amount of running then surely, as i was still running at dawn, i ran 2 minutes more than you And if i was running at threshold ( and only a 2M w/u versus your 3M ) on top of a 2 min start and you was at MP then i must have also run further than you by dawn Not wishing to be pedantic or anything
I've had a quick scan back and muddy hasn't raced since the weekend, what's going on
Bob - i had a similar pain in the top of my foot after i bought a new pair of trainers last year. Was quite painful and it turns out they were just a tad too tight which apparently is enough to cause problems. I tend to have them on the loose side now.
Lou - @ the pay rise, made me chuckle. And that's a nice session
Skinny - 5:30 when marathon training and doing the mid-week MLR of 15M or so. Recently it's been 6:00 - 6:30. So much better running at that time as there's hardly any traffic to deal with and most of the population is still in bed/indoors getting ready for work. That includes the goons who like shouting " keep going Forest Gump" as they drive by. And of course you get to see the sun rise.
In the last few weeks i've had this conversation a few times
Them : " Have you done the London Marathon before then ? "
Me : " No, but i've done the Brighton Marathon twice "
Them : " Oh, how far's that one then "
6 x 5 mins at Threshold on Tuesday at 6:33am. This was 2 mins before Lit started so i win that but she wins on distance as i only covered 9.3M inc up and down. Bugger !!
My other Q session is supposed to be tomorrow and is " Steady 60 min run at M pace " That seems a bloody lot for an MP run !?
EDIT : Lit - that's an excellent Garmin fek up, i'd be proud of that one There can't be much worse feeling than setting a session to nicely work you through without having to think and then it falls over. Frustration in the extreme !! Well done on getting through it.
