53 miles for me this week and 50 last week. I'm only up to 18 on my long runs atm. Don't panic me about my lack of intervals DD!! Time will tell though whether I'm in 2olds camp or yours As to which works! I'm knackered already and it's not Feb yet!! Recovery week now though
Hey guys! Been awol too. Nice to see you freemers. Great ironman training Barry, are you running London? 2old enjoy your holiday and your running.
nothing much to report for a bit but head in the game now! Decided to stop doing the intervals in marathon training and have opted for 2 tempo runs of @ 5-8 miles instead and a long run. I'm my own experiment. funked it up for my 25th marathon! Got a few races in the run up planned starting with Bramley 20 in 2 weeks and Wokingham half the following.
Bro - gutted for you. I know how hard you trained and as Barry can agree sometimes things just don't go to plan on the day. Which is a bitch! We train so so hard for hundreds of hours for an event that only last a few. then we can't do it again for ages. But as 2old says, you've completed put marathon campaign and it's probably one most of us want to forget!! Enjoy your holiday.
Barry - I think I hate cycling more than swimming!! Least you keep at it. I haven't had my bike out most of the year!
2old and chick - good luck with back management.
Freemers/Nell - still training well.
Well I loved my 10 miler on Sunday. first ever time of running. One of the hills was 25%. Loads of mud where I thought I would lose my trainers. Enjoyed running without trying to place or pb. 1:23 on my watch. Legs are still a bit mashed. Been trying to run faster the last few weeks. 2 X 5 miles @7:30 pace. 9 miles @7:57 pace today.
