Hi, I'm not as fast as some on here, and not really following a plan, when I entered I had aims of training hard and aiming for 3:30 which would be a big PB.... But had minor injury, now recovered and did a 20 miler on Sunday Which went fine..... But soon to go a a 2 week cycling holiday which doesn't exactly fit with any training plan.... So have readjusted aims, feeling relaxed about Berlin, no time targets, just going to run enjoy it and see what happens also travelling from LHR on fri, returning monday.... Be great if we arrange a forum meet up at some point over the weekend
I've been struggling a bit with my running since Comrades... a niggle calf that isn't that bad, but won't go away and its getting a bit frustrating, longest i've done in the last 2 months is 11 miles. I've adapted my plan of building on my Comrades endurance and get faster with the hope of a PB in Berlin, to take it gently see what happens, just get around Berlin and go for Boston next year. Despite feeling running isn't going great at the mo, had a good run last night which increased motivation, so considering a half (sturminster) on Sunday, and booked my flights to Durban today , of out now for a gentle few miles, i expect i'll see cows in the local fields, but hopefully no bulls!
I listened to Fido's advice, and she gave lots of travel and race day tips which I found really helpful this year ( except the bit about eating bland food, I ate whatever I felt like and suffered no ill effects... Bunny chow seemed to go down a treat, although I did stick to pasta the night before)
Fido how did the MRI scan go, or do you have to wait for results?
I keep looking at the Hilton website, they've got the price really high for the comrades weekend........ If you put in just one night and say your flexible, you can see the different prices....... Normal price is about £67 (non refundable) but as you say about £200 on comrades weekend...... I'll keep watching and hope it changes at some point ( but will book a cheaper refundable back up option)
