Hello all, I know I've been awol for a LONG while too... but, I'm super dooper excited about spring marathon training again, so thought I'd get back on here Was indeed lovely to meet Reiki at York parkrun on Saturday - I wasn't at my best as I had just run 9 miles there at my marathon pace, and quite dehydrated, underfuelled, hungover. . . I know you're shocked, coz I would never do that in a million years! But Sarah and I ended up doing a 23 mile run together- my longest that wasn't a race. Tomorrow, I'm going to attempt 30 miles on the Essex way with 2 of my friends who are the world record holders for the fastest 5k dressed as a pantomime camel - I filmed them doing it the day before my Manchester marathon this year.
I know I have a small 75 mile ultra to do before marathon training, but you all know the marathon is my favourite thing, and my garmin has been getting me excited by giving me a prediction of 3:19. . . me, who this time 2 years ago had a pb of 4:33! And to be fair this time 1 year ago had a pb of 4:18 . . . Craziness, but I'm gonna shoot for the stars, and its perfection that the weekend of my ultra is 29 weeks away from London marathon . . . I like following a 29 week long training plan . . but may reduce it a tad so I can have a bit of recovery
I think I'm gonna fail to catch up as its been months, so will just jump in here and see what I pick up xxxXXXxxx
