I'm a 3 week taper kind of guy . I've got a 22 mile run this Sunday then a 20 and then somewhere around 16 . I don't think any long runs in the last 3 weeks does you any good, unless mentally your having doubts and need convincing you can make the distance. At the moment every run I do is hard work. I try to take comfort from being knackered as it shows I'm doing something right.
Keep positive people as we are all fitter than our current form shows.
20 miles done for me today. 66 miles for the week so happy with that. I did have a program to follow but that went by the way side after a few health problems. So now I'm simply trying to get as much running done as possible and get a 20 run in every weekend til the taper. We fly out to Paris on the Thursday before from Luton coming back on the Tuesday evening flight. I can't get enough of Paris to be honest and intend to keep busy all the time. I need to catch up with this thread as I like to see how everybody is getting along. Hopefully we are all progressing and can be optimistic about the race.
Evening everybody. I thought I'd join in the fun on this forum. this will be my 3rd Paris marathon and I'm hoping for a decent time but my training has so been hit and miss. I'm up to about 16 miles at the moment and managing to run too and from work for days a week,which is 4.5 miles each way. Today I've done a slow 12 with my partner who is running London. It's hard work running at her pace for 2 hrs but hopefully the time on feet is helping me. I'm hoping to get a 16 mile in tomorrow after work so it should get me over 20 miles for the day.
I'll have a read back later and see how your all going.
