I'm aiming for around 2.55 at London but will be happy with anything under 3 hours.
I ran London last year in 3:00:54 and was gutted to miss out on sub 3 by less than a minute.
Training has been good this year apart from the minor set back last week. I've increased the weekly mileage and done longer tempo runs and better long runs than last year. The 24 on Sunday was the same route I ran 3 weeks before London last year but I was 5 minutes quicker this year.
Hopefully I can stay injury free, get a good taper and run well.. fingers crossed!
I took 2 days rest/recovery and resumed training on the Thursday and ran 6 miles, easy on a treadmill. I attempted to use a support but had to remove after a mile as it was causing pain in the arch of my foot. I 'lace locked' my running shoes to give some extra stability.
Friday ran an easy 30 minutes in the morning and then 6 miles in the evening with 10 x 1min speed reps.
Saturday just an easy 30 minutes in the morning and then my longest run Sunday (yesterday) at 24 miles in 2 hours 49 minutes.
The ankle is still slightly swollen but has not got worse with training, the bruising is a lot more visible but seems to be fading.
