Hiya Miggito, As luck would have it am taking High 5 Gels and that's what they are dishing out in Edinburgh. I got some with caffeine for a boost !! Still experimenting with the interval but maybe on the day will be 5, 10, 15, 20 and the next b4 i collapse !!
Hey Colin Lee 4, thanks for asking. The 8 on Tuesday went well, 8.24's. Went out to do similar this morning early (obviously too early!!!) and felt absolutely knackered ! Cut it short and just made it a slower 6 so am rested for the 16 this Saturday.
So glad the weather is getting better and looking forward to running in daylight after work
Hiya folks. Not been on for a while. Quick update then. Since last entry, did a couple of short runs cos of slight niggle then managed a 14 miler on the Sunday a couple of 8.5's in the week then a very nice 8 miler round Buttermere (thats twice round). All seems to be going ok and I keep checking my diary to see what I was doing in 2011 when I last did Edinburgh. It's a good benchmark to have. Got some practice in taking gels while running. Having one about every 6 miles and seems to work ok.
Doing 8.5 Tuesday and Thursday then a 16 on Saturday. There, said it again so have to do it now !!
Did the 12.53 miles yesterday in 01:55:01. Two 4's and a 6 planned for this week before next Sunday 14.5.
I generally have a sports drink when I get back the food ASAP after a shower. Milk is good with a meaty pizza. Not what Mo would have I know, but hell, you have to live a little........................Red Wine is FULL of anti-oxidants!!!!!!
