Tapering for Sundays Gran Canaria marathon with normal taper worries ..200 mile weeks / overtraining certainly not one of them, but V50+ is! 1400 entered . 800 from overseas, c100 Brits, lots of Italians, Germans and Poles. 17C and 8.30 am start = coolish!. A low 50's average mpw over past 4 months inc 2 marathons and 2 Olympic tri's means targets. (A) 2-59 - 3.05 (B) 3.06 - 3.09 (C) Tinge of disappointment. Go off at 4.10 mpkm pace and let the good times hopefully flow.
Been back on the forum for a week and have witnessed SL treadmill WR, RB long distance plans and now TT impressive and impromptu fast marathon in the sun and countless jaw-dropping training and racing.
Good people and dangerous to know.
Finding this very entertaining to listen to http://podtail.com/podcast/running-commentary/
DanA - Cardiff marathon 2006, you led me into the Millennium Stadium.
TR - Spot on, Devon 1st, Cornwall 3rd and great to see your back on the road. Just enjoy the running because you can, and the motivation to run races will/ may come back when the time is right.
TT - Liked the answer.
RS Be interested what you think of the Pisa marathon (albeit in the blur with the admirable speed you will run it) as on the long list for 2017
