KR - wow, great progression! Not really qualified to advise on tomorrow's options. Both look like very nice meaty sessions
Thanks for the reassurance about MP. When I think back to recent campaigns I think I felt the same about the early MP runs as well.
It's just the step up to sub 3 is such a big one. Running sub 3:15 pace felt very fast but sub 3 speed feels like I'm absolutely flying. All you sub 3 veterans, I have the utmost respect for you!
Steve - cheers! And I really appreciate the invite to Palace. I would love to come up. Need to check on the family movements first but hopefully it'll be on. 800's sound much better than the 2K's I did this week
PS. you're sure it's Tuesday and not Monday or Wednesday next week?
Malcs - as I used to tell the nuns at school when they tried to remonstrate - it must be your depraved mind.
sense - I think sean hit the nail on the head!
I'll confess to having joined Roger and James in watering the streets of Paris en route to the start line. There were people going everywhere.
I didn't see anything going on in the pens but apparently it does happen. Some pens have loos inside them though I think. Maybe someone else can confirm. If you want to ask the experts head over to the Paris Marathon thread.
Btw. I didn't want to panic anyone. I got to my pen with about 15 mins or so to spare and it was fine. You don't have to be in the pen really early if you don't want to.
BRB - many thanks. I'm not so patient when it comes to catching monkeys though
Tom - hope the late run went well last night.
I've been doing a bit of mixing of even and odd week sessions. Mainly following the odd weeks but after the vom reps from week 6 on Tuesday I couldn't face the week 7 Thursday session of 8 with middle 6 at HMP so I did the week 6 session of 6 with 4 at MP but added an extra MP mile as penance for wimping out
Have to say that sub 3 MP feels very fast to me right now!
Iain - that's brilliant news. I think we all understand how it feels to get back into things when you've had a lay off.
