8 and 4 for me Saturday incorporating a slightly pedestrian parkrun in16.28 (1st) .first long run since Abo this morning. 20.1 miles in 2.08. Legs ok but bit heavy after 2 bigger weeks after a couple of zeros. All in all very pleasing
Thanks guys. Apologies for the write off/right off fiasco earlier! I've sacked my proof reader.
Charlie I agree I plan to do only 12 week build up for London but playing a bit of fitness catch up at the moment. 18 week build up for planned Berlin marathon in 2015 meant 17 weeks great training followed by injury for the big day.
Simon great to have the 'I beat Marigold tshirt' no matter what the circumstances!
Good luck SL you nutter
Thanks Wardi and Padams. Last year was a bit of a right off with series of recurring injuries. Only really managed 3 races. However strung together a 6 week training block from zero miles and 2 week taper for Abo and couldn't have been more chuffed with 2.31 and 2nd place.
Since then I've had 2 more 2 week lay offs but managed a 33.24 at Christchurch 10k and 3rd place in mid December before another 2 weeks off. Did Broadstone quarter on new years day not expecting much especially with it 3 sizeable climbs but was thrilled to come in 2nd in 36.00 catching first and overtaking Marigold in the last mile...my favourite scalp ????
Padams think you're right my second child was 2 months when I last posted and the unplanned 3rd came only 13 months later ????
Philpub I have 3 pairs of those Bostons. Best shoe ever, wore them for Abo and will be again for London
good luck all berlinites will be there cheering you on and maybe on the start line but last minute injury is making that increasingly unlikely. if I do start my abc target is 2.29. whatever enjoy the sausage....
