Al_P: Training Marathon, Treadmill, 2:50! (Bit soft avoiding the bad weather)
Also noted Padams 2hour run prior to a parkrun. And CW kindly treating his family to a holiday in Milton Keynes (second prize?)
I was at the Paddock Wood Half Marathon. My first HM since 2012, due to a mixture of injuries and not bothering. I get the excuses in: very strong swirly wind knocked us backwards especially in the last three miles. Anyhow: very happy with 77:26, starting a bit cautiously and generally moving through the field. Made it up to 20m with jogs either side.
Problem is that I've been getting intense stomach cramps and, yeah - spare the details - that last for hours after. I've had these after a couple of recent Londons, but now in a couple of shorter races. I suspect it's down to taking some ibuprofen before to control some foot pain. Has anyone else experienced similar?
Great session Lev. I think there are times when you do have to test whether you've recovered and at some point it does become do or die. Now you should have masses of confidence for a good run at London
