Ah yes, I'd forgotten about that. Mansfield Town are supposed to be playing Carlisle United tomorrow and Carlisle are fairly confident that the game will be on as the weather looks 'reasonable', not sure that helps at all!
Indeed, I am constantly surprised how sometimes a 3 mile easy run feels like a real effort and then a 10 mile run the next day feels easy.
Anybody racing this weekend? It's our club handicap on Sunday morning (~10k route, you predict a time and see how close you get to it, without a watch), my current thinking is to do it as part of a long run sandwich.
So THE marathon will be a smack down spread over half an hour or more between Mace, Lit, Tommy, McFlooze, Marrows and MadBee - must be easier ways to meet up!
Of those I guess Tommy is most likely to be near me. Tommy what's your target? I am trying for 3:05ish.
Charlie I'm suitably impressed.
I won't be that near you! I haven't really got a target but probably somewhere between 3:15 and 3:30. I will do a half marathon in the build up and see where I'm at.
Charlie - dedication. I was awake shortly after that but to work not to run unfortunately.
Mace - massive miles.
McF - I am always impressed by your buggy running skills, I get pissed off having a drink bottle in my hand. Good work.
Mr V - welcome back, sure you'll be back up to speed soon.
10 miles last night with the club, legs felt a little stiff for the first couple of miles but loosened off, an ended up being an enjoyable run, I avoided the final 2 mile smackdown thankfully. Swimming this evening.
Edit: Bob - to confirm how rough the conditions were on Saturday, 'Iron legs' said he had to cut his Sunday run short as his legs were killing him!
