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!
i think ive come to my senses now and will look to run in the brooks, i ran in them also last year in berlin and ran well so will take that option - the adidas might be a bit of a risk for 26.2, and the brooks are only around 10g heavier!
thought i was getting a cold today..seems to have passed now, mustve been a bit of hayfever or something with all the good weather and people out cutting grass! or maybe just maranoia!!!!
