MG , just wondered about the diet thing , I know last year NP and Jason did the carb depleting then loaded , I cut back a bit then load the correct amount of carbs per KG of body weight I dont enjoy it as much as I feel I should it goes against the grain really and then I worry something will happen I cant run the marathon and I have to soend the next minth rolling around like a fat blob trying to lose weight
SM6 , nice session , I do that , ran to and from the track session to make the miles up have a good run today are you planning a 20 this weekend ?
NP nice speedy 6 miler , although an easy run for you I guess ! I had 2 fairly hard days together , the race then the club run, it sent me into a panic , I have never raced that close to a marathon I know it was only 5k and trusted everyone when they said it wouldnt matter , during Wednesday club run I kept thinking I shouldnt be doing this , !!! I shouldnt be doing this !!! so had a rest day yesterday ,
PM nice long run, the heat will make so much difference , someone told me we lose 8-10 seconds per mile slower over a marathon if its too warm , I think it would be more for me
SC not sure you should be going for a sports massage this close ! dont let them get too carried away !
GM so you will hear all our stories first then ! have a good taper
SC running in the rsin ! sounds like bliss , lets hope Manchester is cool and wet ! one of my male club mates is also running Manchester
Tek nice miles for the day ! I must admit I gave up on the HR stuff I just go by feel now
NP a good days training ! how are you finding using the inhaler ? do you need it much
SM6 I am sure if you take it easy the cold will shift , hard training knocks the immune system
MG 15 degs sounds ok ! like you say though plenty warm enough ! nice early start !
Pliates for me this morning , and went club tonight for an easy run , the leader said 7 @8.30-9s ... all I wanted really , we tore off first 2 miles @7.45s I shouted that myself and my mate were tapering !! managed to pull it back a bit but still ended up 7.9 @ 8.20s just about marathon pace ! ! thats it now no more busting a gut till tne 26th
