Would this be the secret marathon taking place at primrose hill on 23rd September then?

Marathon Training : How slow is slow, how easy is easy

Posted: 02/05/2016 at 13:11
I think those wednesday runs look a bit slow, I would be running those at 8mm. But the faster sessions look spot on, that is what will get you to 3:30. People are quite happy running long slow runs, but you really do have to push yourself in speedwork otherwise - sorry for the cliche- you will just be a long slow runner. I haven't run faster than 3:32, but in that year I remember chasing the faster guys in our club on club nights, absolutely balls out, and in January I was nowhere near, in March I caught a guy who turns in a 1:27 half marathon over a mile and a half section.
Then, your long runs get easier too, you can focus on your form and concentrate because you should hardly be breaking sweat on anything longer than fifteen miles.

On a less positive note, 3:30 sounds a bit optimistic based on your 5 and 10k times, what's your half time?

Thigh pain on impact? What could it be?

I think you might need to find another physio? How long have you rested- ie not run or cycled?

Fundraising target for BHF London marathon

Hear Hear!

Have you got a fundraising page Jackie? I think I'd like to support you in your efforts/get conned out of my hard earned cash depending on your point of view

£1645 seems quite reasonable to me, and probably more than some people will raise.

I think it would be a very hard nosed fundraiser who asked you t make the rest up yourself, they know full well that they are pushing it to ask for 2K

Rather than the charity missing out, they're around £1200 to the good from your effort, so you can soak it all up tomorrow and enjoy the race

At Brighton you do get a lot of witty comments from the spectators as you pass by, you'll barely be able to run for laughing.

post marathon. .feel like I been run over! is this normal?

Posted: 13/04/2016 at 21:33
I think its quite normal

If you do another you'll probably find that you aren't as sore or washed out.

The night before a marathon

Posted: 12/04/2016 at 22:16
I think your Friday night meal is more important. Then on Saturday I have a pre-prepared pasta salad at lunchtime. Saturday night I just want to avoid food poisoning really, so I usually go to a pizza express.

Just sore!!!

If I got the all clear, I'd just do what I was going to do anyway, don't try to catch up, you really don't need to. write off todays run and just continue your preparation. A bit of icing won't do any harm either, get a paper cup, fill it with water, freeze it, then rub the open end over your knees. as it melts, tear off the paper to continue.
