Sorry to hear the news, Jools. Running is a great tool for thinking time and stress relief. If it all starts to get heavy, pull the shoes on and run some calming miles.
Mevagissey! I love it there. Stayed in a mobile home camp park a few years ago and would run to the harbour and beach areas. Hope you're having a great time OO.
Rest day today after another 4 consecutive days of training. Hill reps yesterday on super mashed legs. 15 miles to be run at LSR pace tomorrow.
Brexit is a shocker. Really thought Remain would win. Our politicians on both sides let us down badly. Too much trading of personal insults during the campaign left the general populous ill-informed and voting on emotion rather than established facts.
Great report BB, outstanding determination. Congrats!
Hope the jolly is full of carbo-loading of the best sort, Freemers!
Week 2 of the Berlin campaign almost done. Adjusting to 5 runs per week is tough on the legs but I hope they get used to it. 10 miler on Wednesday was hard work after the 15x400 track session the night before and the sub-7 six miler the day before that. Could only manage an easy pace of 7.43. Legs felt mashed.
Last night was a 4x1 mile track session. Coach said to do 6.30 pace, this felt comfy so I treated myself to a 6.12 final rep.
Euph! It's me, the poster formerly known as Spotter's Badge! We were old buddies on the sub-3.45 thread years ago. I said hello to you on the start line of FLM09. After that marathon I could take the running pain no longer and had my hip re-shaped as it turns out I had a bone deformity. With well over a year off a mate got me back into entering marathons by tempting me with Pars 2013 (3.23). Thanks to help from the crazy mob on here I'm now down to 3.11 (a GFA at VLM2016) with a view to beating that in Berlin in September which will be my 10th marathon. Great to hear from you again. Welcome to the party!
Slightly cooler yesterday and despite a heavy training week last week, legs felt better so knocked out 6 miles at 6.58 pace. Track tonight, 15x400 with 1 min recoveries. Should be interesting!
