Morning early birds! Any of you the runners I see at 6am(ish) weekday mornings running round ferry meadows in P'boro? Seems to be a few runners out in the morning I manage to puff out a quick 'morning' too.
I nearly always run first thing (6am) no food before running, just straight out of bed, gear on and out of the door.
I've got no idea if it's a better way to train but it's certainly not a bad way to do it as far as I know, it's what a lot of people do. I now have breakfast every morning but for a long time didn't even eat until lunch. To be honest I doubt you'll be starving enough to train your body to be running on fat rather than carbs!
Ran the half in 1:53:46 which is a PB of...........1 minute! I'm quite happy with it though as I've only done a couple of runs over 7ish miles this year and managed to keep a very good pace up until about mile 11 when I had to slow down. Just need to do a few (well lots) more long slow runs to build up that endurance and get under 1:50.
I liked the event itself, well the town bit was good (the dual carrigeway bit was not too exciting!). Parking was a pain but just about managed to find a space on the industrial estate. I liked the finish in the stadium which was pretty unique. Great crowd support.
