Bro: marathons are grossly overrated , stick to the short stuff for 12 months and your speed will come.
2old: that's a lot quicker than I run these days, x training is the way forward as we get older
Barry: speedy stuff, it's Outlaw Hookham in July that I'm doing
?? M went pretty well as expected 1-47-17, I have lost a minute each year for the past 3 years! Horrible course with 850' feet of climbing, every year I say I won't do it again! TBH I'm happy enough with that as no longer train seriously.
Ran 5 quickish yesterday and cycled 35 today with over 1000M of climbing, it was cold.
Chick: sounds as if you had a great holiday, dont stress about your marathons, there is plenty of time and you know what its all about, you might just surprise yourself by not having trained so hard.
AA: hope you have kicked the CNBA fairy into touch, hard to motivate yourself on a day like today though!
Ticking along here, actually I guess a bit more than ticking, this week has seen 100 miles of cycling, 3 miles of swimming and 30 miles of running, but there has not been much quality in there bar Thursday club fartlek session. Tomorrow is Blackmore Vale 1/2M. Its a horrible course hated equally by myself and O4S, anything under 1-50 will be a triumph given the total lack of quality in my training.
