Never thought of that May get an old T-shirt and put the time on the back  and turn myself into a proper pacer Nasty hill at 11 miles 12% for half a mile so thinking may walk that bearing in mind the pace so will need a bit in the bank

FRC Hurty foot is a bit better worse first thing in the morning. Really want to run again (which is very different to last year) but not going to risk it until fully fixed. swimming and walking for now. Make the start line is already the most important thing.

Recovery was cold bath drinking a recovery shake. Lovely NOT but do think it helps. Food wise not very good just getting as many calories on board as possible as a Brewers Fayre that meant pasta/chips etc but I got that wrong. Over the 4 days I put weight on!!!! although I feel thinner so could be water retention I guess.

Only other comment for your friend would be the people. They are AMAZING and could not be more helpful supportive and once I new who had done 100s were more than happy to answer any questions I had however they are addicts. really hit home when the main topic of conversation heading to the start line on day 4 was when there next marathon is and for most the answer seemed to be this Sunday.!! Its not going to as a surprise for me to say Ive started thinking about the 100 club but I don't want to start chasing numbers

Hello all

Most on here have loads of experience but there may be some bits in the following to help

Quadzilla Day 1 Time 4.28 New inside first mile was going to be a tough day but instead of accepting it tried to push on Result cramp tired and very tired at the end

 Day 2 Time 4.28 Started slower HR lower pushed in the last mile to beat day 1 run which I did. Finish felt a lot better

 Day 3 Time 4.38 Slow plod but fairly constant pace as wanted to enjoy marathon number 50 Tired at the end but overall OK

 Day 4   Time 4.31  Hurty foot at the start so run walk from the start using 25/5 for first 2 hours. Reached the half marathon in 2.20 and for whatever reason felt less painful running than walking so ran most of the 2nd half for a big negative split, Fastest lap (3.65 miles) the last one!

All 4 within 10 minutes of one another but the best result without doubt the last one. I figure 3 minutes slower than day 1 with an extra 75 miles in the leg has to mean I got it right

Learning Set a target DONT bank time if your feeling good hold back. If for whatever reason its just 1 of those days accept it and just enjoy the company/views.

I hope you all know me well enough that Im not showing off and want to help so if anyone has any questions just ask. Its been a great 4 days and I REALLY HAVE LEARNT A LOT  for the future
