And I have completed a hell of a lot of half marathons. And a bloke gets to an age when a bloke gets to thinking about maybe going around twice next time. But I need talking into, or maybe out of a full marathon.
My half PB is 1:44 after a lot of hard training but over a short period. Starting in January I am usually race fit by March. And early March and all. Like first week early March. Can I expect a marginally sub 4 hour finish? Would be nice.
So do I really need to train for nine months for this or will six do? What about injuries or non running weeks? Will this bugger it all up?
I am looking to train in the decent weather months for the first one so starting in April and racing in September. Would like very few surprises, flat and fast in English. Pref south west. Alright, Bristol but we only have a half at the minute.
So everyone that has completed a gazillion marathons, any ideas?
Just went out on a nightly plod, nothing too far. Set the Endomondo Pro on my Blackberry Torch which is getting a bit hit and miss.
And yes, it missed. Didn't get out of bed and basically just froze so no record of distance or time.
So time to get a wrist mounted dedicated option. Just want something basic. GPS, time, distance and pace. Not bothered about heart rate, training partner would be nice but all I get at the moment (sometimes) is that from Endomondo.
To please certain previous posters. Ladies should never spit, or shoot snot rockets. If possible, no, always, do that swingy arm girly run and let the boys win because you should really be at home talking about hair and boys.
Now in the real world. Spit in front of you or into a hedge. Snot rocket one nostril at a time. But never EVER fart while running.
Unless you shout "FIRE IN THE HOLE" first.
So, sunday is the big 'un. The season openers. But that's the rest of the week to go. What are you eating? Having a final make sure blast at it? Or feet up? Friday was 6x6 minutes on the turbo and 7 miles easy yesterday. Tomorrow bit of a pounding on the treadmil for cardio, wednesday off, Thursday 30 minutes easy, Friday off, Saturday 15 minutes. And lots of doughnuts. You?
