Paris Marathon 2015

Posted: Today at 18:01
All this Paris talk is making me jealous,I really wish I was running Paris again and not boring Manchester.

I came through my final 20 mile run today unscathed.Ive felt a bit of discomfort on my knee again but it hasn't come to much,defo think its a trapped nerve or something.

I managed the 1st half of my run at 9:20 min/miles and the final 10 miles at 8:21 min/miles.I felt like I was cruising through the 1st 17 miles then bang,the last 3 were tough,though I did manage to hold my pace but my HR jumped considerably towards the end.

Barring horrendous conditions or Injury,I'll be disappointed if I don't annihilate my previous PB of 4:22.

I've had a quick look at the weather forecast for this weekend.currently showing heavy rain and 25-30mph winds for my final 20 mile run on Saturday.I think I'll switch it to the Friday as Im struggling for motivation and the thought of running 3 hours in horrendous conditions is filling me with dread.

Eggy:Your recent half marathon time,which was amazingly 3 days after a 20 mile run,suggests your well set up for a solid attempt at destroying that PB.Im hoping to hit a similar time and I'm not as trained as you are.Its a pity Im not doing Paris this year cos we could have dragged each other to a 3:45

Well done Eggy on the PB,you've defo hit a bit of form over the past few months,are you shooting for a PB in Paris?

Scott:I posted a few times on the manchester forum but the interaction is virtually non existent,whereas on this forum there is always someone willing to give advice or share their own experiences no matter what the subject,be it bums,farts or even injuries

Well there goes that idea then,long runs are really difficult to squeeze in during the working week

Leggy:I defo wouldn't attempt a 20 mile run without feeling good and fueling up the day before.If you feel better tomorrow get some good quality food into you and plan your run for Tuesday.

15west:I'm not running paris this year,I'm doing manchester the following week.Ive just continued to use this forum rather than the manchester forum,I much prefer this forum,I think it's cos I can put a face to the usernames,also a really nice bunch of people on here,I'm not saying the manchester folks aren't nice lol.It is a 3:45 schedule off the RW website Im using.Ive already done 20 miles at MP +1min and 20 miles with the final 5 miles at MP,I was just wondering if it's really beneficial to do the final 10 miles at MP,I guess I'll let my body decide for me next weekend.

I was having a look at my training schedule for next week,it has me doing 20 miles,half at normal LSR pace and half at MP,is it really necessary to do the final 10 miles at MP.

Well I managed to do my 'unofficial' half marathon training run today in a time of 1:42:22.My HR readings were pretty high tho I definetly felt fine until the last mile where my pace slowed but nothing drastic.180bpm average which is about 89% of my MHR,I need to reassess my MHR.

I treated myself to a new pair of trainers this week.I got the new asics nimbus 17,finally found a good GREEN pair of comfortable trainers.Ive never had a pair of Nimbus,the cushion on them is incredible,I'll defo stock up on them once the price drops on them.

Good luck folks with your final long run before the taper,I've got another week to go til my final 20 mile run.
