Thank you poohbear Toby Nix and anyone I forgot for your good luck wishes. I really hope we break the record this time (we tried last year but rain stopped play)
wow poohbear!! You are doing so well with your training. I hope I can apply your determination and hard work to my training, you are proof that if you work hard enough you can achieve your dreams. You are absolutely going to smash your last marathon time in 2014
Nix we are attempting to break the record for the worlds longest hockey match and are going for 40 hours. It basically involves one continual game played by 2 teams of 16 meaning we play two hours and rest for an hour in continual rotation but cannot leave the pitch area at all and neither can we sleep on the bench.
Khanivore - good plan with the slower pacing of runs at the moment, I may try that after I finish my PT's plan but I struggle to go slower than 10.20 and I suspect your mileage is a lot higher than mine!
Tenjiso - good mantra, I definitely need to remember that one.
Skippy - I may do Tonbridge half then but will need to check how it fits with other races I have entered tho I suspect it may actually be a more convenient date.
Barbie - massive well done on the ultra that's awesome!! Enjoy your rest
Yvonne - well done on the weight loss and glad u had a nice run.
Toby - glad u r feeling better and can get out running again.
Snowmaiden - Hi! How ru doing?
Rest day for me yesterday. Fartlek tonight and then HIIT tomorrow then that's me done for the week ready for the epic hockey game. Funny old week with carb loading starting and training tailing off, feel like I am stopping just as I was finding my groove but I guess the hockey will help with endurance and I can get back on track with the marathon training soon after I hope.
Jelly Girl - excellent that sounds like a great plan then Yay!. Yeah hockey was good thanks re finding my love for it but won't play next season as will need to concentrate on the marathon besides I may not like it quite so much after our mega long game next weekend
