Shades - The first 12 miles felt really comfortable as i was able to have a conversation with the guys and admire the views of london as we ran along the river. It was the last 5 that i struggled as it was at a much faster pace and i ran out of energy (guess it was like hitting a wall) think fueling during the slower part would of been a good idea.
Mamafox - I am going to aim for a a sub 1:30 half or even a PB. I have heard that it is quite a fast race. It will be a good test to see how well my training is going..
My other half is getting frustrated with me as i have got that buzz that i get from good training and she is getting sick of hearing about running etc Oh well C'est la vie.
Khani - I use the viper boost gels with Caffine from Holland and Barrett. Very easy to swallow and don't taste to bad either. They work wonders and aren't too dear either. . Well done on getting out the door. .
I'm probably going to do the paddock Wood half at the end of March. Anyone else doing it?
Helloooooo running folks.....met up with the guys from the club for a nice long run with the last 6 miles being at MP... final distance. 17.25 in 2:05 so really happy with that. . Been guided to enter a half marathon at the end of March as a test how well my training is progressing. ..Hoe you all have a good weekend running. ..
Molly - if you go to marathon-photos.com and enter "2013 Edinburgh marathon festival" in the event name and bib no "634" there are a few videos of me running as well as pics but you can't view them on an ipad
evening all...Just got in from another club session 8 x 800m. I only managed 7 but it was a good 7 at that, average time of around 2:53, not lightning but still fairly quick for me anyway..
I have seen videos of me running and i have a very unique and distinctive way of running. it has been said it looks like i'm running with a watermelon between my legs and carrying 2 more under my arms. knees and elbows tend to stick out but it works for me. If all else fails ill make a great watermelon farmer .. heehee
