Now some of you have started to talk about racing shorter distances, it may be time for me to step back into the room!
While you lot have been training for marathons (well done everyone by the way - some very impressive times!) I have been working my way through a succession of the P&L training plans and I can tell you that they definitely seem to work! Currently in the middle of a 10k plan for a race on 19th June. Looking for a tiny PB of 30-40 seconds - or maybe that's a big PB when you're talking about a 10k..or maybe it depends on how slow your PB is to start with?!
Lit - much as I dislike people offering untrained medical opinions based on personal experience I am about to do the same! My iron levels refused to increase to 'proper' levels following a course of iron tablets and my doctor mentioned the possibility of coeliac disease. At first I was very sceptical as I didn't think I had any of the symptoms but when I actually sat and thought about it I realised that it was a possibility and it turned out to be right. May be worth looking into just so you can cross it off the list?
Hi everyone. Thought about this thread yesterday and realised that I hadn't been getting any notifications so came on here to see if Nicole had finally managed to acheive her original targets - and you have! Congratulations!
I have just finished a long but enjoyable cross country season and decided to run our local half marathon a couple of weeks ago off the back of my normal training. Was chuffed to bits to get 1:41:16 - an 11 minute PB! So this coupled with the sub 45 minute 10k from December means I should no longer be on this thread!
Good luck at Manchester Bob, and for Boston, Nicole and hope you get that sub-4 Tim. And I hope everyone else achieves their goals for the coming months!
