Hard to believe it's only just over 2 weeks away! Obviously I like to take my training seriously , so wondered if anyone has suggestions for good carb loading venues, as I'll be needing to find somewhere to eat on the Saturday.
I only recently found Strava, and finding it quite addictive! I'm also running the Witney 10M on Sunday, but my schedule (training for Chester) says slow 18M so haven't yet decided if i'll do the extra before or afterwards! I'm not following the P&D plan, I have the book, but at the moment I don't think the plan is for me, it seems a bit intense (and fast) for me, but there are parts of it thats useful, and i like the theory behind it. Maybe another year i'll try it, and I'm enjoying following this forum, and watching people's progress, and looking forward to reading how everyone gets on in their respective marathons! Good luck to everyone with there running this weekend.
I only ever intended to do one marathon, that was back in 2006, and by about mile 22 I was wondering which one I'd do next, I've typically done one or two a year since then, it's definately addictive. I'm also doing Snowdon a few weeks after chester, not sure how that will go Or what running I will do between the two. My focus has been on Chester, and I'll be trying to get a good time ( I'm planning to use it as a qualifier for next years comrades, my first ultra) at the moment my plan is just to "jog" around snowdon, to enjoy the scenery and the challenge and not worry about the time!
