Welcome Matty, im thinking of Manchester if I don't get a VLM place but I will get New York out of the way first! Good to see you are back 15W Andrews as Fergster says the hard work is now done, enjoy the taper and good that you aren't stressed. Scott - im still in awe (And jealous!) of your 10k time and looking forward to reading your HM race report, you must surely be gunning for a 1:24 off than 10k time? Best of luck. Long run (20m) for me after work today as im involved in organising the Ealing HM which if going by the past 2 years mean I wont sleep now until Sunday night!
Well done Scott, that's a cracking time and sets you up well for the marathon.
Andrew - Do take it easy and I really hope its not PF as that can be a bugger to get rid off. 18 miles with 14 @ MP yesterday at Eton Dorney Half marathon I did my 4 warm up miles and misjudged the start so I didn't catch the last runner until mile 2. Was kind of nice working my way up through the field. Glad to get that run out of the way, 3 weeks until the taper!
Ooooh ......... Taper madness has kicked off already.
Great to see cracking runs by Madbee and PBs by MM and Mini 15West and Fergster all bodes well for the forth coming marathons.
Had the dreaded 7LT on Fri got to 5.5 mile and was feeling reasonably good until I got a pain (like a stitch in my ribs) and had to slow down/walk for 3 laps of the track until it was gone. Then did 2 more at LT, not sure what caused the pain.
22mile LR yesterday, our club had an organised run with water stations and cakes at the end and I ran with a few club mates and ran it much too quick! 17@7:34 avg and the last 5 miles at 7min mile (MP!)
