P&D spring marathon 2016

Posted: Today at 06:49
Morning Tom! I'm considering Abingdon as I still have unfinished business with that one. I would also like to get a decent marathon time in the bag if London doesn't go 100%. It tends to sell out fast but they do transfers (I think) so I'll enter and then see what happens. Yes it is a very flat & fast course. Has to have the highest % of sub 3 finishers for any UK marathon.

I get to work from home 1.5 days a week so it's not so bad going out for a MLR after that.

I have had a few bad races as well
London 14 - 8 days after a 50 miler. Ambitiously went out at 3hr pace which worked out well to halfway but ended up with a 1.40 second half.

Abingdon 13 was my worst. Went out at PB pace even though my training had been hindered by hamstring trouble. Went out in 1.30 but detonated after 20 miles and had a 1.46 second half.

Didn't Samir and David Falconer end up at the Reading half, or did I dream that?

15 mile MLR done. Didn't seem quite as soul destroying as last week. I think I'm getting used to them again. Have a couple of easier days coming up due to work commitments and then a high mileage weekend. May make next weeks recover week a little easier to give a mini taper for the half.

There was a spate of Eventclip ones as well. Lots of people closing to have "just discovered this great invention" I think the owner of the company Mike someone even got involved. It got quite heated from what I remember.

I'm hoping for terrible weather for Wokingham 1/2. I'm looking for any excuse for the poor performance that my training is pointing towards.

Skinny- I think the OP in the first one was Tom Chinery and the Second was Mike Rushton. God knows how I can remember these details.

Sounds like a sensible call Scott. It also means that there is at least one distance that I am faster than you at.

This one always makes me laugh- I bet some of the funniest ones have been deleted though.
