3 weeks today and it will be all over and we should all be celebrating and possibly hobbling a bit!
I note the small changes to the course and pleased the loop around the park just before entry to the stadium has gone. It was always a bit of a mental battle to cope with getting so close geographically to the end and then having to loop of for a 800m meander along some lonely paths... just got to psych myself up for the underpass of doom.
Anyone know if the Sea Scouts will be in action, as usual, handing out lucosade bottles ?
I hope everyone's training has gone well and folk are looking forward to the taper.
Lev - superb time, well done. That is a massive chunk of your PB and sounds like more to come. I heard the world record went so assume conditions were favourable today? I look forward to reading the full race report later. In the meantime I hope you are going to celebrate hard.
For me it was last long run before Abingdon. So pleased to get 22 with 6 @ 6:40 pace done. Time to taper
Al_P my target for Abingdon is for a PB, so anything sub 2:55. I have run Abingdon 7 times though the course has a few minor changes this year, but it should still be a quick course. Maybe a bit lonely for you though!
Enjoy Canada. Love the unconventional marathon before the marathon!
Good luck to PP, Toro and Lev in Berlin. I can sense the excitement building.. and that is just for the carbo loading.
AL_P - Really looking forward to seeing what you can do in Abingdon. Though after the first mile you will already be over a minute ahead of me! How far you going this weekend? I was planning on doing my last 20 or 22 mile run
Lunchtime run for me. Managed 9 with 4 x 1 mile @5:55 pace, which made the ride home this evening a bit of a drag. Looking forward to taper starting next week.
