Not been on here much lately Back in Houston for a couple of weeks, wasn't really planned but Mr TS had to be out here, I stayed home as we are having the house knocked about and loads of building work done but I gave in and came out here as I had no kitchen, no floor downstairs, no heating etc! Did a week up in Yorkshire and then headed out here! Back 1st March.
Running not been great, went out with my friends here on Monday, only did 3 and a bit miles and not very fast. Did do a long fast bike ride this morning though.
km, a lot of plans do a max of 22 miles. The last 4 or 6 miles will just happen during the race, I guess the adrenaline keeps you going - it certainly will if it's London! I have run them on 17 to 22 miles max training and I have to say 22 mile training was my best marathon, but I guess that was because I was generally fitter during that time.
I'm sure people will have told you this already but for the race and during long runs too I guess; start off slow!! If you want to run a certain time, break down into miles or km if you prefer, work out your pace per mile and go slower for the first half than the second. Never race off at the start
Is it only me who can pull an intercostal muscle whilst doing Pilates? Felt it go pop as I was doing some sort of stretch It's not too bad, it's gone before so should only be a few days before it feels OK hopefully, although why I had so have a sneezing attack this morning I don't know Ouch
Running gear is now off and layers and layers of clothing on - I'm frozen!! Didn't run as it was just so cold outside I don't mind the cold usually but today is just that awful damp cold that goes right through to your bones in an instant
