Good stuff Heather - going to try incorporating a session that is flexibility specific this campaign - ie 3 mile warm up and an hour of stretching..... the top physios are recommending this! How many runners actually do this? Maybe 1%?
Swimming a few times a week is helping to keep things balanced and the core stronger too I think. Training will become more run specific in the new year. Aiming to hover around the 30 miles a week mark up until then.
Hi All - am also entered into Paris this year ..... got some demons to slay after a 3:00:18 at London last year and then ballsing up the GFA entry for London this year due to the payment not being on an apple device abroad.
Have a feeling that Paris could be a good one though!
Advice I've heard so far is narrow course in places and watch out for skating rinks of banana and orange peel
Some great times coming in by the looks of it....... I'm going to have to wait to join the elusive sub 3 club ..... came within an agonising 19 seconds .... 3:00:18 - but was carrying a slight knee injury and couldn't take nutrition on due to mishaps with the stomach... so have a good list of excuses to go on
There is def another 5mins+ in there on a good day ... its not supposed to be easy I guess! ...... was hoping to give Cracknell and Button a run for their money but sounds like they stormed. Cracknell in 2:50 for a man of 90kg is mighty impressive! Think Jenson was around the 2:52 mark .....
Cheers for the helpful tips guys - its been an education that will be continued...
