Alright all - quick read back to see there is still a lot of swimming talk. What gives crew!
Anyway but some of you are marathon training, which is nice. I started my 18 week plan for VLM this week (cos having a week off in a couple of weeks). Utterly brutal Sunday provided me with a 14M run inc 8M @ MP and 1M @ threshold pace. And today 14M total again including 5M @ threshold via 2M intervals.
Yikes. It will either get me fit or kill me.
Still doing XC - 3 races into the season and 3 more left including the Nationals in PHF in Feb - anyone signed up?
Barry - yes see you at the start - I think I put sub 3:15 down, but am currently not in that shape. Here's hoping Jack Daniels will do the trick (book not drink variety). And glancing back you're planning an Ironman! Jolly good if you fancy a whole day's worth of hell
Free - still a painful foot, curses. I was going to do the Norwich half, but am building up slowly instead. I have signed up for the Brentwood half in Spring if anyone else is doing it. Kiwi? Daren?
Alrighty all. I see the thread has risen like Lazarus I am back in the marathon saddle. Got a ballot place for London so am currently ramping up the running to get to something reasonable at plan start. At around 30mpw at the mo.
Did a load of tris over summer which were great fun, but ended doing only around 15mpw while i was doing them hence the need for some base building.
