Great running everyone. Have done a lot of switching around of days lately to try to fit everything in and have a life as well, Im using the P&D excel spread sheet so lots swapping numbers on the ID tab going on! My weight is gradually coming down (2kgs lighter than my previous marathon) but hoping to knock off another 2kgs by race day if I can stay away from the cakes! Finally hit my paces on a MP run but I did it in the Canterbury Half marathon (plus a few mile before), looking back probably went a bit quick as it was a very hilly half and my legs are still feeling heavy after it.
But my calf is behaving itself.
Andrews - That's outstanding mileage
Scott - Well done on finding a run to do, not bad to get off the tarmac every now and again.
madbee - Cool race report, don't agree with odd shoes! That's just for over paid footballers!
Two years ago I PB'd in most distances while marathon training and didn't get what I wanted on marathon day. While last year I didn't race during marathon training and got what I wanted on marathon day. As the others have said judge it off your own recovery time Personally I would race in training and am doing Maidenhead half marathon in two weeks time but I think 2 weeks is a little close to race day. I think racing gives you idea of how your training is going and if its going well it can give you confidence for race day.
SteveG2 - i think i'll brave the weather and go on Sunday as i doing Taunton parkrun on my way to Bideford. Best of luck on your 20 miler. Love the Tarka trail as it nice and flat and all off road. Well done on the LT session
