Seville Marathon

Posted: 15/04/2014 at 13:25

WB- I've done Seville this year. You enter online here

I seem to remember the entries didn't open until later in the year...  Just keep on checking. They sold out much quicker this time round than in the previous years so I wouldn't leave it too long.

Hi everyone. What a day it was... my head is hurting for which I blame Minni.

Minni- you made the right call and you know it so onwards and upwards is the only way. It was great to catch up as always. Bring on the TR and some speedy stuff!

AA- great result considering everything you've been through. I'm glad I managed to spot you and hope didn't embarass you too much with my mad shouting.

Free- I was looking out for you and thought I must've missed you. Sorry to hear about the foot but you made the right decision. Get it sorted and I'm sure the next time you will absolutely smash it.

Ant- yupppeeee! Congrats on a new shiny pb. Very well done.

O4S- brilliant

Col- sub 3.15 well and truely smashed to pieces!

KFC- hope the legs don't take too long to recover. It was nice to catch up yesterday.

Jack- sounds like a very frustrating experience.

Had loads of fun spectating yesterday... what a day for it!

O4S- whoop whoop! Many congrats and looking forward to the report.

2Old- Well done on the last LR. Good pace!

Ant- I don't think racing a couple of 5ks will do you any harm. It doesn't take long to recover from them and as you say they're good sharpeners.

Free- hope your early morning intervals went well. I quite like doing them before work. It means they're out of the way and I don't have to spend the rest of the day obsessing...

Chick- good run and take it easy, sounds like you need to rest.

8m for me last night on the way home from work at just under 8mm with a few @ 7.40-7.50. I didn't push the pace or look at the garmin and it felt a lot better than the last few runs so hopefully the legs are waking up a bit. Rest today and parkrun tomorrow.

2Old- great report and a smoking half. Very speedy indeed.

Minni- glad to hear you're feeling better. Have a good one tonight.

I'm having a rather painful return to running which is what is to be expected after 2 weeks of drinking and stuffing my face with curries so I'm trying not to get too depressed about it (for now anyway). My two short runs yesterday felt way too hard and I had to reduce both duration and pace of my tempo run today. Rubbish!

Oompa/ AA- what do you mean recovered quickly? It's been a month since Seville for crying out loud! Which doesn't mean that I'm back to normal. I'm ok to resume training but as always it feels like I'm back to square one. 30min @ 7.50 today felt like a tempo effort... Sigh.

Next target is getting to grips with those pesky 10/5ks, then onto the TR and York.

AA- these things don't happen when it matters, fortget about it.

Barry- trying something different sounds like a good idea. Hope it works for you.

It's not a triple!!! Lol- double today and a tempo run tomorrow!

Chick- Seville was great I would very much recommend it.

Col/ Daren/ 2Old- very speedy halves, congrats to all of you!

Pinklady- very well done on the pb. Sub 2h is calling!

Chick- good time in tough conditions. I know we all want to nail that last half before the big day but it doesn't always quite work out like that. Don't let it get to you and keep your eyes on what is the main target.

O4S- great race report.

FRC- well done on the league race.

Oompa- welcome back.

Minni- very speedy mp miles there... and it all sounds a lot more positive!

Jack- your half indicates that you should be able to get 3.30 but it won't be a walk in the park. If I were you I would definitley give it a good bash! 16m @ your target mp will always feel hard in training so I wouldn't worry about that.

I'm back in a full swing this week with a cheeky double today and a tempo run tomorrow.

Hi everyone. I'm back from my hols... A lot to catch up on.

Carrot- excellent run in Barcelona considering the conditions. I would've died in that heat. Doesn't sound like the conditions were right for a pb but like you say you know you did everything right and it will simply take another go to break (and probably completely smash) 3.15.

Barry- very happy to hear that the calf held up. Considering the heat and the problems you had in a run up it was always going to be a tough one so glad that you're happy with the outcome. There were some super speedy miles there...

KFC- hope you feel better!

Hope Col had a good one today!

Good luck to all the racers tomorrow.

I got back this morning. Managed to do quite a bit of running when in Thailand- some of it on the beach where even at 6.30am it felt like running with someone sitting on my chest... so not very far or fast! Some of it on a hotel treadmill in the second week. I hope it helped to limit the damage caused by all the cocktails and curries...

Can't wait to get back into proper training now.

Some great target pace setting from everyone. Exciting times!

Just a quick check in from me. I'm off to Thailand later today to sit on the beach, drink cocktails and get fat for the next two weeks. Not sure about the internet access so just in case I don't get to tune in next week all the best of luck to Carrot and Barry in Barcelona.

Barry- I really hope the calf gets better and you get to have the marathon you deserve. I have everything crossed for you.

Carrot- you are flying at the moment and I am sure you are going to smash it... the question is by how much! Very excited for you. Go get them girl.
