Rome Marathon

Posted: Yesterday at 22:23

Only 2 and a bit weeks now. Finchley 20 coming up this weekend, then it's mini-taper to Rome. It might be the best trained marathon for me, and we are not 'allowed' to go for it properly.

Rome is just a stepping stone. The GF wants to run Rotterdam for a PB 3 weeks later, therefore it's her last long run, I am going to train through for Comrades, so it is my 1st long run for that, not counting the 20 mile runs. I might thane to run 10 miles on Monday after the race, if anyone fancies it.

Well,it's not going to be like this. This year it will b between 13 and16 degrees, a light trailing wind, and the occasional pleasant drizzle. Or is this just wishful thinking?

up run when the conditions were atrocious 

What does that translate to? Rain? wind? Snow? 50 degree sun? ...

F2D - I didn't think about box hill at all, just doing all my running in Richmond park. Do you mean the ZigZag? I cycled it a lot in my triathlon days. Also, from Westhumble (the box hill train stop), when turning left there is a good hill, did it last year for the green belt relay and was last with none in sight after less than 2 miles

Anyway, as regard to hills, the Lindsey Parry podcast spoke about it today. Saying 5% on a treadmill is a good simulation. I haven't been on on win years but was in the gym today, so I just put it on 5 and had a go, it didn't feel like anything, but I didn't run, just walked a bit. So either the scale isn't percentage or I got the podcast information wrong.


I hope everyones training is going well. I am coming out of a down week myself, having been flying previously in Watford and Bramley. Good to get the stupid phases out of the way early.

Farah on fire!

Good on Mo though. To establish himself as a true great he needs a few world records to go with all of the titles. Those knocking his coach will have to change tack a bit too.

I am not sure that 2 mile indoor is a world record many of the fast runners care about. And looking at the 3ooo m indoor, Komen could have have jogged his lap of honour in 40s and beaten the time set by Mo this weekend.

I would like to see him run a fast time rather than a quick last lap, so hopefully h gives the 5000m or 10000m a proper go.

It looks like the 1st big marathon weekend is coming up. Good luck guys.

Are you all running long, or is one of you trying to get a qualifier or a seeding this weekend?

Junk food at races

It sounds like it was an option between other stuff. Well, some people prefer real food over sugar gel, so good on them for putting it on. At least you can take a bit and eat on the go. Also, it likely isn't in a wrapper so no litter either.

marty - also running Watford. Didn't think it was long enough to warrant the list

Hoping for something around 1:45. My St. Albans 10 time predicts a 1:42, but Watford isn't flat and I am not sure I will be up for really fast after hammering parkrun today.

We have Watford half this weekend, then it is 20, 20, 17, 20, 20, 17 miles. Easter is a 'free' weekend of long runs.
