I hope future articles offer a bit more insight than this. Drink water and eat protein and carbohydrate to recover, well duh. And no examination of different ratios for different types of training, which I would have found useful.
I saw Gary Speed (RIP indeed) a couple of years back running the London Marathon, looking unhappy as a big gang of Welsh fans failed to notice him (they were hugging their own runner to be fair), and also Nell McAndrew last year. This year I saw Jonathan Pierce (football commentator) looking very tired around mile 18 and Cheryl Baker at the same point with a couple of very glum looking friends.
While running I've gone past Alan Davies (from QI) outside Highbury tube station.
Hi, I'm doing the Edinburgh Marathon in May. By being a plonker I've managed to miscalculate my schedule and have a spare week between now and 27th May. What should I do? I don't want to be undercooked but was thinking I could have a week of focused speed training, or maybe even a break from running and do some swimming or cycling. Any thoughts?
