Doing a long run on Sunday if anyone is interested. I will be running from home to Rose Hill, then doing MWW, Lyme Park, Whaley Bridge, canal loop (16miles), then running home. Very slow, time on feet run.
Set off from Rose Hill at 8:30
GBM - Doing York marathon, I have got a lot of DIY to do although the list is getting shorter. Stupidly brought a house that needed lots doing to it and can't afford to pay people to do it. I actually think it helps with training. I ran my marathon PB after spending the winter digging out concrete fence posts.
SARQ - don't know what the plan is yet. Prob do the first half in 81 which gives me a tenuous chance of a PB if I can keep going and a fall back position of sub 2:45.
I was a bit hacked off with it at the finish but looking at previous years marathon training it is about par for the course. I think I was pretty tired going into it. I ran 8miles home on Friday night very easily and had to stop and walk due to bonking big time. I then spent all day Saturday digging up and relaying a garden path.
Hopefully a taper will freshen me up cos at the moment I'm f*cked.
1:17:50 for me at Lake Vrynwy Half, just behind 1st and 2nd ladies. Bit disappointed with time as felt I was running really quick all the way round, paced it well and felt strong at end. Was certain clock was going to be 1:16:ish but not to be. I must be getting old!
