NorthEnder I'm on the organising committee for the Ealing Half so we like to call them mild undulations rather than hills. Its a great race although I might be a bit biased!
Millsy - running has been very poor this year, As someone said to me recently ''you trained your arse off to get a Boston qualifying time and once you got in you didn't move off your arse''!! I'll get around alright but wont be breaking any records You look well prepared Millsy
Just dropping in to say Good luck to all those racing this weekend, especially those doing Manchester marathon.
Madbee a good place to spectate is after mile 17 at Brookland station. There will be a big crowd at the station as people see runners going both ways but if you go somewhere between miles 17 and 18 it gets fairly quiet. I'll be somewhere around there supporting the 22 Ealing Eagle club mates who are running it. Flying out to Boston on Wednesday.
NorthEnder - the same as the others have said RACE the HM I always race 2 or 3 HM's or 10k's in my programme because if marathon day goes tits up you can look back at the races in the programme. Also it helps to break up the plan and have a mini-target.
I also then to do the MP stuff in races which really helps.
9 with 5mile LT session tonight ay the track, have a club mate who will be going slightly quicker than me so hopefully that will push me a bit.
First session tonight, 5his is my 4th time doing P&D, don't think I can improve this time as I've added 10.5kgs since April and I was seriously motivated to get my sub 3 even now I think sub 3 in Boston might be a big ask but will see how training goes.
Scott cracking parkrun and you got yourself on the sub 17 parkrun leader board.
Had a quick look through these pages & some impressive early training going on, very inspiring as I need to get some motivation from some where so hopefully I can get it on here.
