Aha - JB - think I've got it now, have you been spending a lot of time on a bike? So you'll be in good shape, just need to take it easy to get that sub5 26 if you've not got a lot of road in your legs.
Garth, well done on the qualifier! Looks like you paid a price for that early pace, welcome to the hamstring club with speed like yours you'll be back to full working order in no time. Marty - what did you clock?
I put in a trail 22, went off a bit too quick but still kept last weekends average pace in the end @ 4:04 in total. Must stay disciplined on speed. Well tired when I got in, only 34 more to go though weather was foul on the Wirral but it looks like warmer times are approaching.
Hope everyone else had a good Sunday - lots of event reports to come in yet
Thanks Becca - there was someone not on your list though who popped up a few pages back, I recall making a comment about 4th - just looked them up - Jelly Bean - they were taking it to the wire in the expectation that MK might be the backstop.
Poacher - that sounds horrible - you must be basically mended though? How long have you managed on your feet so far in training (irrespective of speed of movement)? Fordyce says prep is all about time on your feet. Really hoping you can get it together for the big day.
Lovely to see all the prep going in everyone; Garth that was a big comeback! 8 then 20 and a marathon approaching?
I was shocked to cover 20 in 3:38 last weekend, trail again in road shoes - maybe I need to invest in proper gear, all previous efforts have been in excess of 4, and my recovery was good, I put it down to these guys. Sam Brown's grip isn't what it used to be either. More physio tonight and I'm thinking of upping the miles on Sunday. UK is warming up nicely, we need it.
I just managed to grab the last to size L UK Vest and T Shirt via FB (no XLs left), challenge now is to lose my winter blubber so I can fit into them! Are people actually wearing these to run in on the big day?
