Well that bloody hurt.
I was fine up to 25km and started to get tired and at 28km it was tough going on my legs and feet. Breathing and stamina was fine though.
30km and i was well.....struggling and at 32-24 i was almost walking.
I did take some walk breaks though during the latter stages to try to ensure i got through it.
From thinking i had an outside chance of 4:30, i think cracking 5:00 will be tough. I have decided that definately running with the 5:00 pacer will be better than 4:45.
Having said that i did make it round albeit slowly.
As for confidence, i am happy i made 34km, but disappointed at how tough i found it.
A new longest distance by some 4km though.
Race day i will be fuelled better of course, and will have liquid all route (i went 24km today with no liquid).
So what do we have for this week? And do i continue the swimming?
AlanB, the answer to your question is No. That stuff is far to tame in my eyes to be honest.
So..........on that note,
Back to running lmao.
great run bigeater, everyone who did their +20 milers today are in taper i guess now, well done everyone, keep fit now and you will be set.

not bad with 3 weeks to go, more pages that 50 Shades of Grey. Certainly more entertaining anyway.
