That's some dedication Gul to be out at 3am and weekly mileage!
Defo not mara training MsE, but looking at longer weekend runs.
Shame you had a disappointing GNR 0053. Still a stella time. Well done to 00 jnr!
Hopefully the endurance will get you through Poacher.
Birch a few of my friends from my athletics days back in the 80's occasionally post scanned in paper results from back in the day. Regarding highest mileage, it was last year training for the 24 hour event. I did 102 miles in the week which included a 24 hour period from Friday night - Saturday night where I did 60 miles 15.5 / 26.5 / 18. Leading up to that I'd done a 90 and 80 mile week. Good luck for the XC season, I bet you're waiting for a good bit of rain & mud!
That was a big week Leslie! I think you get into a cycle of long days, then run & sleep. When you look back you wonder how the heck you did it!I think you are right about the routine though MsE.
Hi Lit welcome back - a good goal for Chester! Thanks for posting the link too. I'm at 501. Interestingly there is no gun time on there, maybe they thought the 3.30.xx gun time was an error (having missing the start by 27 minutes!).
10 mile progressive run last night with a 7.59 first mile and 6.18 last mile.
