Shades Marathon Training

Posted: Today at 07:59
Shades - its been torrential rain over the past 24 hrs so the going will be tough. I will guess that mud might broke a slight issue but I'm looking forward to it.
My little one has said he wants to go running again so I'll encourage it as much as I can..

Ian - well done on a fantastic new PB and reaching your years goals. But why stop there, you seem on form and you have 6 mnths of the year to go.

Afternoon folks...

shades - my legs are feeling much better thanks. Ready for tomorrow. It should be good running as the weather has been dry the past few days so not too much mud I think. 

My 6 yr old had his school fun run and he decided to enter the 5 k event. There was a 1k option too..bless him, he didn't quite realise how far 5 k was..we started out and ran the first half lap near the back of the pack but he plodded on, walking occasionally then running again..he wanted to start the first full lap and and insisted he was ok. Halfway round I could see sweat pouring down his face and he was very red.. He completed the lap and I could see He had reached his limit and couldn't carry on but he did 1.5 miles.. My other half could see I wanted to try catch the leaders so I carried on and ran at my pace. I couldn't catch them as they had lapped us once already but I managed to still finish in 26 min. I wasn't worried about the medal but made sure my little one got one for his effort. Proud of him..

Tomorrow is the north downs run and I'm quite looking forward to it. Will be a change doing a trail run with lots of hills..not expecting a fast time but will do what I do best and enjoy it.

Lee - well done on getting your head sorted as far as diet goes.. Planning is what keeps me focused and on track..
I've entered the north downs run this weekend and plan on doing it completely fasted which will be interesting.

Shades - yes the race is this Sunday.. I massaged my legs and then headed out for an easyish 4 miles but they are a little sore today... I'll make this an easy week and then next week I'll pick the mileage up again..

afternoon folks.

quite warm and muggy so not really looking forward to going out for a run this evening. If i do though, I'll have to keep it quite light because I have a slight case of DOMS but i guess that is to be expected and nothing a good massage wouldn't cure..

Shades - yes it is the 18 mile race. Last year members of our club won the men's and women's race.. It's right on my doorstep so easy to get to. What would you recommend I run on that Saturday if I'm doing the race on Sunday.

Big_G - anything more than 20miles/week (VLM) is a huge jump but I'm trying to be sensible as I don't want to injure myself...
I've just entered the north downs run which I'm going to use it as a training run rather than a race.

Afternoon folks..

Steve - I found this weekends long runs tougher then expected. On sat I walked 5 miles for work and then managed 11.5 miles and Sunday I did 13.2. I think it will take a few weeks to get used to. Plus I need to keep the speed down. I tried to keep it at 7:30/mile. That makes last week's mileage 47 miles. my highest weekly mileage ever
