First of all, well done to everyone, some great times and pbs on here, great to see and the majority seem to have enjoyed it! - sorry to hear you didn't get over pipes, but next year maybe? im definitely in that category, the expo, race organisation and city in general were spot on for me, loved it!
My race could have been better, I was hitting my 3.45 / 3.49 pace bang on until halfway then started slowing and finding it very tough - looking at the heart rate, it seemed to jump at this point and stay high, not sure if it was the heat or what it was, ended up with a 3.54.00 which is a three and a half minutes Pb for me - so I'm not too down about it, but could've been better, training I did probably hinted at a time around 3.45 but I'll take a pb every year if I can!
I'm waiting also to hear from London, usually do get a rejection ballot but I'm a hundred percent in for berlin next year when the ballot opens, will be another fingers crossed one!
Hi all, hope everyone is keeping well and hope you get here pipes!
Been here since Thursday, must say it is going to be very warm for running, I'm going to maybe have a look at the time I'm looking for depending just how warm it gets! Will take the sponge with me I think, or else just throw cups of water over me on the way
looking at accuweather, seems to be a nice day on sunday now, although at 23 degrees, a little warm! hoping for a bit of a drop before then!
tapering really kicks in this week, only 4/5 miles for me tonight, then may take tomorrow as an extra rest day, travelling on thursday so will only run easy then, and i like getting out for a few miles on the saturday, the day before - anyone for the breakfast run? Never sure if its a good idea to do or not
SteveMac - i would imagine the ultra would have you well ahead in terms of endurance - hopefully itll stand by you in the later miles and you'll be good to finish 26.2 thankful its not another ultra!
worrying day for me today, 2nd last day in work and a cold going round...fingers crossed i avoid it, wouldnt be so bad getting it over the last weekend but if it came on wed/thurs this week it would probably stop me running on sunday
unfortunately some colds going around - hopefully they're early enough to shake off before the marathon, should be okay with a few days vit c and plenty of fluids - as long as no one gets one on friday or saturday it should be fine!
nice easy week ahead, a few easy runs but nothing major, just making sure not to make any silly mistakes - no need to overdo it this week on any form of exercise, less is more!
