Hey Rich - glad things are looking better for you. Hopefully you can enjoy the marathon with the pressure off. Training going well for me with under 8 weeks to go. First ever 60+ week last week and legs still feeling fine! No 20 milers in the bag yet but that will come! 3x 18 milers done including the first one that had a sub 90 HM thrown in the middle (at Garioch).
Baker Hughes 10k in under 6 weeks too - hoping to smash up the PB (on the road, I haven't ran sub 40 yet!).
Rich - just caught up on the thread! Quite a lot has happened since my last contribution!!
glad to see you're on the mend.
I'm in Inverness for the HM tomorrow. Target is PB (currently 86:03), but hoping to go at least sub 85. Training has been going well - up to high 50s mileage wise now the past few weeks.
That XC race last month was good fun. 5th place, couple of mins behind Steve Buchan from Metro who is 35:35 10k runner and finished ahead of the leading lady who is a 37:37 10k runner - well chuffed! The course was good - 2 laps, 1 absolute beast of a hill per lap and then loads of downhill. Tough but good!
