MBNA Chester Marathon 2015

Posted: 28/08/2015 at 12:55

CSMLFC, this is my take on the hills from earlier in the thread, as has been said before nothing really of note, except the last one, and that only because of where it is.

Basically there are 5 parts that could be classed as hills. None of which are anything to be afraid of.

1 - Almost as soon as you reach leave the racecourse start, there is an uphill section in to the centre of Chester. Catches everyone out and can get congested as everyone suddenly slows down.

2 - Around 3 miles, just after crossing the Dee short climb up through Handbridge village.

3 - Mile 18(ish) Cross back over the River Dee at Farndon, short sharp climb up other side of river. This one is both great and a killer, as fantastic crowd support at top of hill that drags you up (and means you have still look good too )

4 - About mile 22 shortish climb up in to Huntington (beware, a lot of people mistake this for the final climb!).

5 - Sandy Lane, about mile 23 - 24 fairly short sharp climb back in to Chester itself. This can be a killer, but hey you've nearly finished so whats not to like.

Agree with Will, you say that "technique was generally good and I seemed to have good strength.  I just can't sustain it though", yet there is a lack of endurance stuff in your plan.

Coming from a running background (so it may not be the same but I imagine it should be relatively similar) the only way to build lasting endurance is to do the long runs, the speed comes from the shorter sharper sessions, but to be able to maintain that over distance you also need to put in the long miles.

I've entered for 2016.

Initial reports from the first one are very positive so am looking forward to it.

(Although I am currently ignoring all this talk of a 'hill'!!)
