Big difference between doing maras all-out vs just to finish. I laugh at your pw. I think mine is around the 6hour mark! You're not trying hard enough!
No running at the w/e bar a parkrun jogging round in 34 mins with a much faster clubmate who's going in for the Ridgeway 85 (87) and was saving himself for recce-ing er most of it in the coming days. I am off to a family wedding in Turkey, flying Tues night, so (quickly checks: there is no Istanbul parkrun) will be doing no running at all this week!
But very inspiring to see Marigold from our brother thread (-1hr!) doing so well on Sunday - was it Jovi bumped into his Mum? That's the sort of thing that inspires me to get off my arse (once the foot / nerve thing is sorted) and do some running - if keen I could do the time if not the miles!
Saw the Thunder Run pix, looked like a good laugh. Sadly own club track relay and social is this weekend coming, when I'm away - oh well.
Howard get well soon. Wabo, you're setting a good example, keep it up! "Tempo" is a flexible term but very loosely it usually seems to mean that if your tempo run is N miles, what pace would you race 2 x N miles at? Do the tempo (or most of it) at that sort of pace ... ish....
