Sean – moan all your like, after all you live in Yorkshire !
Nick – walking and beers are good for recovery ! Do you have the option of commuting by foot to work ? If so, this can be a good way of getting some miles in without it having too much impact on home life.
Rob – remind me of your fuelling strategy during a marathon. If you are going to go for it, and will be hanging on at the end, do you take on more gels towards the end of the race ?
Nell – great report and still an inspiration. Sounds like if you can get the extra S&C in that you might be able to go faster still so, yes, Mrs Nell is right !
PS – you won’t know until you try if it will end in tears ! I’m not being funny but you aren’t getting any younger (sod what your grandmother said !!) and, at some stage in the near future, the speed in your legs will disappear. When that day comes, will you look back and wish that you had really gone for it, just the once, to see how fast you might have been able to go ? I refer you back to your last long run on 9 April where you ran 20.1 @ 8:38; training runs like that would suggest you should be able to run a 3:30. The risks to adopting the 'just go for it' approach are obvious though…..
