I'm celebrating with red wine while I knit not an auntie yet, but any day now, so getting the practise in
great news superman- make sure your return is cautious- given u were ultra training ur endurNce is great, And like many say it's about maintaining speed in the final miles. .. In my experience- this has so much to do with your 'self-talk' so if u have extra time perhaps focus on some visualisations- imagining what it feels like to break that dream barrier can be quite amazing and exciting and emotional too
Tom, Hello, just seeing that you're not well. I would definitely miss the half or take it easy. I know its horrible when you've been training so well and you know your half deserves a really good time, but racing it could affect your training capabilities for weeks after if this is flu. Best wait for the next half when you'll be even fitter. I did last year and got a big pb just by waiting to race 6 days...
Hellsbells, I managed to alter the distance to km, whilst the pace still showed in min/miles
ITs perfectly natural to have a freak out leading up to the London Marathon in particular because its such an effort to get a place. Your friends and family love you no matter what happens, and if something does happen I'm sure everyone on this thread would support you too, including the lurkers
Any nuts with any dried fruit would be fine really, I just love apricots and cashews.... another I love is apple with peanut butter, but that's less easy to transport
Snowing here, so glad I did my run in the morning and tomorrow's a rest day where is the race on Saturday?
