"I have given up on achieving my original time target, but still want to give the race my best"........that's exactly what you should do.
Just enjoy the race and train properly for the next one. There's hundreds more out there after this one.
3 weeks is just enough for time on feet and a 'get round' strategy but not much else
22 is not advisable in most plans purely for the rest of the weeks training. Recovery for that sort of mileage would take too long.
Agree with Pete Holt, other factors must be the reason for fading. LSR too fast is always the no.1 problem
Surely someone would of seen this nutter just hopping the course? what a twat....
I could of sworn i saw him at the mile 15-16 mark...
I love my beard
I look even better when I'm in my dirty greasy overalls
hobo comes to mind..
^ that sounds like the worst advice ever given . They are always the first to say 'stop doing that'.
Hope all gets sorted so you can enjoy the sport again Dave
