I'm planning for a sub 5 hour and do alternative weekend long runs of 10/12/14 and 22/25/32 km runs so between now and the race I'll probably do at least 3 or 4 32km runs. I am down to 2:04 for a half and hope to sub 2 by the race next year.
Hi Vet 1
Indeed, I'm reminded of the quote "...what's the point of living if you cannot feel alive... "
It may be a movie quote but wise words. I hope I can get to 10% of your level when I'm your age.
There is a nice article here about deaths and running https://www.myvitality.com/run-fast-die-young-have-a-beautiful-corpse and I once read that you are twice as likely to die driving 26.2 miles as you would be if you ran the same distance
Since when is "148 men and women" relatively large ?
With so many other variables over a 12 month period it's hard to take these surveys seriously even if the results are as expected.
