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!)
Great long runs yesterday Andrews - getting up at 4.50am for a long run is very early, fair play hope you have today off! Madbee - are you taking the piss (pun intended!) its amazing how we surprise ourselves when the pressure is off. Ramjet - Congrats on the PB and the win
MM - well done great time
1:26:20 for me in the Maidenhead half so a new PB thanks to the Beetroot shots! and the 'go faster' shorts and trainers! Was hoping to go sub 1:26 but let it slip in the last mile which was disappointing, cant believe I feel so good today as normally after a PB my legs are wrecked, now thinking maybe I didn't try hard enough! NO purple poo yet!
