Jeg - welcome on here. 1:25 for a half would suggest that there's a sub 3:05 marathon in you, but I suspect it may come second or third time around, rather than first time. A few more miles during the week and perhaps a more structured (but not over-structured) approach to the training plan will definitely help.
The most important thing is that you enjoy your London experience and want to come back for more - at your age, there'll be plenty of opportunities.
Rest day for me today in preparation for tomorrow - spent most of it worrying about phantom niggles affecting knees and toes (at least my head and shoulders are OK!)
Good going on the mile there PMJ. I presume that your shoes dazzled folks as you went past them.
Thanks for the good wishes Abbers. Good luck with the quest to go sub-90.
Not quite sure what Sunday will hold. On one hand, the weather conditions look darn good, on the other my big toe nail is just about hanging on but whether it'll survive 13.1 miles I don't know. I'll be in my tried and trusted Wave Elixirs which have see me through PBs from 5K to marathon. See you there SB.
4 miles at 6.30am this morning on a fartlek session with younger Lorenzito. Unfortunately he didn't quite get the idea of going nice and easy between the faster bursts so we ended up at an average of 7:15 pace.
Blisters - love the cake. Clearly a man of many talents!!
MsE - great news. Look forward to catching up when you're back. Have you ended up someone in Guildford itself (as I think you were looking there) or in one of the villages nearby? There's a good (albeit rival!) running club in Guildford if you or the kids are interested! and you'll be back just in time for the T&F season.
Glad to hear you're back to normal KR; fingers crossed for TR.
Bike It - very disappointing. Get straight out there and run it accurately this time.
Using PMJ's formula, I reckon I've got to get within a shade over 50s of target time for Sunday's half to get 99%. Don't forget that this is just one part of one month for one person so I hope no-one's going to be TOO upset if I'm a bit out. Please!
