Brighton Marathon 2015

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 12:25

Managed a 12 miler on Friday, which I found quite tough, despite being a flat, road / seafront course!

Then a quiet weekend for me. Gentle bike ride Saturday with Mrs J. Rest day Sunday, meal with friends, eating outside in the sun. Could be the last time this year the way the weather is heading. 7 miles at a reasonable pace this morning.

Tillstar, to add to what Toby said, my personal advice would be, if you do decide to go for the time that close to the marathon, just make sure that you have a real recovery week the next week, with very little running. Two weeks out from a marathon, a good HM could be just the thing to finish your training, but you will need to make sure that your joints are fully recovered for the 26.2. -I usually find it takes two weeks to recover from a tough HM, so if you are disciplined, it could work well for you, but as you say, probably best to decide nearer the time.

Happy runnings everyone

Well done to the junior JR's on their pb's!

Well done for the 10K Just Run. It's a nice feeling when you get under the 50 minutes

Toby, still putting in the good miles with the family. Excellent!

Tillstar, I've only done a couple of marathons myself, but that sounds like a good plan to me. For my second mara, I focussed on building up the mileage at an easy pace, and getting used to running more than 3 times a week, with maybe one faster run each week, and it seemed to work well. You've got enough time that you probably don't need to worry about a faster run in the week just yet. I only did it to keep off the boredom!

Good weekend there Jason!

Nice park running Clag and Just Run. And sounds like some excellent hill walking thrown in for good measure

I've also been on holiday, so not much mileage showing for me. Took the new bike round a French forest (Compiegne) a few times, but just at a leisurely pace with Mrs J, not training. Must have been a refreshing week though, did my fastest 6 miler of the year this morning, so I was pleased with that

Consistent running there Just run.

Jason, good that you were able to get back with us!

Clag Hope you enjoy the hills!

Another long flat 16 miler today. Then later, a bike ride and 1 mile run with my daughter. Might be mostly easy bike riding for exercise the next couple of weeks, keep Mrs J happy

Happy runnings

Robert Yes. I also find it difficult to get my head right for different sorts of training. Either I focus on general fitness, or I focus on running, but rarely can do both very well. I just have to remind myself of my priorities as they vary How are you finding the insanity workouts? I think I'd have loved them when I was younger, but my knees just won't take the impact!

Tillstar Good steady running going on.

TrottingAlong So long as the meet spot included food and drink, that could be a good idea!

Toby You are proving the value of consistent training!

Currently I'm focussing on long runs, and managed a 16 miler this morning. Still run/walk to protect the joints (mostly run!) Then my daughter got back this afternoon and wanted to go for a bike ride and a run!! I did the 10 miles bike ride with her, but only managed 1 mile of her 2 mile run . Then stopped for a nice chat with a lady who was working on a community garden and ended up bringing some strawberry plants home for Mrs Juggler.

Happy runnings

Thanks Teknik

10 miles for me this morning. Another flat run. Probably won't be back onto the hills until mid-August!

Toby, you're consistently running good miles, despite the heat.

Tillstar, hope the hamstring settles down nicely.

Nice 15 miles along the seafront this morning. Ok, so it was a planned run/walk but still the longest I've run this year and I kept to a reasonable overall time.

Happy Runnings

Longest run of the year so far, 15 miles this morning. Definitely helped by the drop in temperature!

Consistent running there Just Run.

Clag, hope the new shoes work for you.

Looks like we should win this month

Happy runnings
