Great running Badbark, you seem suited to this ultra running.
Nice parkrun victories for PMJ and OO. I need to get myself one of those but it's all in the timing, hoping the speed merchants don't show.
Marathon pace long run for me today with 5 easy, 14 @ mp and 1wd.
Mara pace averaged 6.44m/m pace. Not quite sub 2.55 pace but that was on the back of an 80 mile week.
Also felt a little too tough for 26 miles but there's still a few more weeks to sharpen and hopefully taper..etc will help.
I think Badbark maybe having trouble uploading a picture of his shorts.
I've had a pretty decent week of training, 10 with reps (6*1000) on Tues, 15 on Wednesday, 12 on Friday all backed up with v easy miles for the rest of the week.
20 with 14 at MP planned for tomorrow should give a reasonable expectation of race day pace. It's a tough solo run!
Poacher- I'm going to set my target for Abingdon at sub 2.55. Feel in pretty decent shape at the moment, hopefully I won't be overcooked by then.
Minni- bit of a wait which must be very frustrating.
Slokey- Double Ouch!
6 very easy miles for me today at about 8.45 pace which is what I've been running all my recovery days at. In fact most of my mileage hasn't really crept over 8mm pace apart from the quality sessions and the P&D runs at mp +20/10%.
It was supposed to be a double today but work got in the way, which is bloody inconsiderate.
