AM, those McMillian conversion times are pretty stiff as well. You did well to get what you did.

I did 3 today and felt, heavy legged but not sore. Managed 28 miles on the push bike yesterday and was very surprised how little I felt the marathon in my legs while peddling, must be completely different leg muscles.

Well done all.

Bad day for me. Kind of lost my mojo early March and have been just going through the motions since then. Went after sub 5 but made the school boy mistake of heading out too fast, got to half way in 1:27:30 and blew up around mile 17-18. Walked/ jogged to the finish in 3:28. 

Disappointing but have learnt the lesson that 5 months hard training is too much for my old legs. back to the 4 month schedule that has served me well in the past.

 

Lap question for Garmin 620 (or most Garmins I think)

Cheers Guys. That answers my questions perfectly. Many thanks.

Lap question for Garmin 620 (or most Garmins I think)

Hi all,

 

I usually run with my 620 set to auto lap every mile but I'd like to turn it off for a marathon I'm doing so I can manually press the lap button when I hit the mile signs on the course to get a more accurate lap average.

Given that I'll probably miss a few and hit the button late (which is not problem doesn't affect the average lap) some of the individual laps will be long or short. Will have still have the data for the mile splits in the Garmin or will they show the laps when I've pressed the lap button?

Not sure I've explained the problem particulary well but any help would be appreciated.

 

Cheers

Gaz

My 20 miles at MP was, as my 8 year old nephew would say, an "Epic Fail". Tired legs from the start, hopefully a taper will sort it out.

 

 

Great runs Carter and Bev.

The more the better Rick, simple as that mate! 

 

Good luck to Stafford 20 runners tomorrow (and other races). 20 miles at MP will be a great confidence booster if I can pull it off.

I am the only one who prefers the dark evenings for running? I'm deliberately leaving my runs 30-60 mins later now because the days are lengthening.

Good luck Tek, I missed out on my first 1:30 attempt by 9 seconds. Hopefully you'll do better!

Got to 304 miles for February yesterday so took a day off today and went for a bike ride instead. 20 miles tomorrow, 2 weeks to go then taper.
