Do the 16M & 18M LSR's and then build the HM up to 20M by adding mileage at both ends or at one end. The most useful effect of any long run is knowing you can do it. Mentally you'll be in a better place knowing you've done a 20M LSR than an 18M LSR.
Kathy I’m going for two weeks, leaving on the Good Friday. If only we could have postponed it for a few days I’d have got another long run in and it would have been 3 weeks before race instead of 4. But tickets are soo expensive and then there is problem of school for my nephew. Hope you shake that cold of quickly.
Unfortunate that you guys didn’t do your HM but at least you got the long runs in. I did 17M in windy and drizzly conditions and was very apprehensive beforehand. I’m probably going to have a very easy week this week as have HM on Sunday and then three and a bit heavy weeks before the end of the month.
Well I switched my Sunday run to Saturday just to make sure I had a bumper month in February. No not really had 3 functions to attend to on Sunday so had to make the switch. Windy and drizzly in places but I did 17M despite being very apprehensive beforehand. I’m probably going to have a very easy week this week as have HM on Sunday and then three and a bit heavy weeks before the end of the month.
Congratulations on the PB SaintBarca and well done Sprint Akie. You guys are way faster than me
Anyway February was 124.62 and total to date is = 225.02
SkyLarker, there are going to be lots of "ups and downs" for all of us during this challenge. There are going to be some weeks and may be months where we're not going to be able to do the requiste mileage. I think the 3rd quarter is the most crucial one, at the end of which, you need to be in with a realistic chance of finishing the job. Dont worry plenty of time yet.
Welcome SafeD - Whats you milege todate since 1.1.15?
Another 6M banked last night. Very mild weather but run was constantly interrupted by stoppages caused by traffic, pedestrians, loose shoelace etc. Ran quite strongly in the last mile and it felt good to let go a bit!
