Keith - mmm I may opt for the 12 hour too, I'm toying with the idea of having another crack at a 24 hour race next year but need to do a 12 hour first to see if I can control my stomach acid. Will have to decide soon as will need to book 2 nights hotel if doing the 12 hour as will be too knackered to drive home afterwards.
Interesting race that link, not sure if I'd like the thought of all the faster runners trying to catch me though. Great idea to have everyone finish at the same time as that does make a good race atmosphere.
Good luck for the triple this weekend, hope it's not too hot for you.
Big G - that's very good pacing for your half, the 30 secs is easily done in the first mile as hard to settle into pace.
Great that you've entered Brussels. You are certainly capable of a sub 4 and that will be a good goal for you. What date is Brussels?
ET - I'm glad that your new training paces feel better for you.
I think for Scottish races I would use the Scottish Athletics website which shows all permitted events.
Humid here this morning, bit overcast, but nice for running as not hot (yet).
Big G - that's great running and as you were only 30 seconds off your PB I think that makes Torbay a fast course. Claire would indeed have been very proud of you.
ET - well done, not much more for you to do to get a PB either. Interestingly that you have a tendency to start off to slowly (unlike 90% of the rest of us), that will be a great asset to you when you do your marathon as starting too fast is usually the reason a runner doesn't achieve their best on the day.
Re your max heart rate, if you weren't close to throwing up then add on a couple of beats.
I will recalculate your training paces later today so we can see if there's any change.
mamafox - you must be very disciplined to record all your food intake in MFP, you've done well as you have little weight to lose.
Love the image of hanging backwards off the end of the bed to get the jeans on, not that you need to do that now of course.
Lovely morning, forecast for heat wave hopefully is going to escape us here in the SW although it's still going to be up to 26 midweek and warm nights.
