Berlin Marathon 2010

Posted: 06/09/2010 at 23:39

No long final run for me as on holiday in "rainy" cornwall, so did 5.5 mile on Sunday as my last run... only run once over 15 mile, so it'll be fun in Berlin I feel... so, to compensate, just found a 5k in Saltam Plymouth Wednesday night... see how I go... let hope I can run close to 17 minutes, or I'm basically just gonna jog around Berlin... Nice to see people getting those last long runs in though... well done people.

In typical British NHS style, I'm still no further forward. Went to A&E last night and they refused to see me without letter from GP (citing budgetary issues). Called GP this morning and even though the physio has written him a letter he's insisting on seeing me. Course first appointment isn't till Monday afternoon. If the physio decides to go ahead with an MRI after getting the X-ray results I'll have to get a referral from my GP before my health insurance will authorise it so am rather stuck.

I swear it doesn't pay to a. be honest and b. try to live a healthy lifestyle in this country.  Bet drunks, druggies and people who don't look after themselves wouldn't have anywhere near the trouble I'm having.

Sorry, am in rant mode! 

On a more positive note, my foot does feel a lot better today though it starts to get sore when I've been walking for a while.  Still maybe a week or so rest will be the thing that's needed.  *clutching at straws maybe!*

I feel your pain, I pay private now, I always do, costs me a fortune, but once with my neck that I couldn't even turn to the right, the NHS Physio said and these were his words.. "I think it's more in the mind than somethign physical"... I nearly slapped him into the next century!

Cheers Pug

P.S Hope everything works out for you though!

Physio is talking about the possibility of a stress fracture so I may be supporting rather than running

Ultra - sorry to hear about your injury. When`s the scan ?

I pulled  a hamstring on Tuesday (intervals - what else?). Tried a run yesterday. Still v sore. Slightly worried coz a torn hamstring brought last year`s Chicago marathon to a premature end at mile 17.  B*gger.


This isn't good, I do hope everyone turns out ok... this is the last thing anyone needs... I double checked my pen and I'm ok jack hahaha, thankfully as I couldn't remember what time I'd put down.

ABYONE WHO'S RAN THIS BEFORE WITH A GARMIN - How accurate did people get it? The reason I ask, I've got a time in my head and really want to set the Garmin to do it, however, if the course is measuring long, then I'll need to just increase pace a little if you see what I mean?

Ellesmere 10k

Afternoon 4 Mile punishment run for being a fat idle waster of a runner in this mornings race... 4 mile, 24:15 (6:04 m/m), 6:22, 6:00, 6:00 and 5:52... that'll teach me for racing rubish this morning!

Jesus, Ellesmere 10k today...was NOT FLAT or FAST? Wind just wrecked me, it was blowing a gale out there this morning, have to admit, gutted to not go 35:xx, but hey ho... not sure where results are going to be...

1 Mile = 5:37

2 Mile = 11:28 (5:51)
3 Mile = 17:18 (5:49)
4 Mile = 23:07 (5:48)
5 Mile = 29:09 (6:02)
6 Mile = 35:15 (6:06)
6.21 Mile = 36:38 (1:22)

Basically 5:54 m/m think this is..  ouch, when I wanted around 5:40 m/m... not good... however, the course is basically too many "slow down" points in it... and gravel tracks etc and one point where you cross a bridge over a canel, just grinds you to a halt. No excuses though, only as good as last race and now, seriously have to completely re-assess my target pace for Berlin... going to be lucky to scrape a 2:50 the way I'm going....

Cheers Pug

Hahaha.. quality I have to watch that with Outlook, if I send stuff from my HTC Desire, it's junk... need to alter the filter.

Anyway, 14 tough hilly miles done, and although backs out and legs hurting, not too bad... 

1) - 1m... - 7:11(7:11/m) - 131cal
2) - 1m - 6:53(6:53/m) - 139cal
3) - 1m - 7:45(7:45/m) - 137cal
4) - 1m - 7:11(7:11/m) - 138cal
5) - 1m - 7:15(7:15/m) - 138cal
6) - 1m - 6:50(6:50/m) - 139cal
7) - 1m - 7:24(7:24/m) - 137cal
8) - 1m - 6:42(6:42/m) - 137cal
9) - 1m - 6:47(6:47/m) - 139cal
10) - 1m - 6:45(6:45/m) - 133cal
11) - 1m - 6:49(6:49/m) - 138cal
12) - 1m - 6:52(6:52/m) - 134cal
13) - 1m - 6:40(6:40/m) - 130cal
14) - 1m - 6:23(6:23/m) - 132cal 

So, if legs feel ok tomorrow and head and chest aren't too bad, Ellesmere 10k race on Sunday and will go out at 35 dead pace, see what happens... I take it people are "long running" this weekend? Don't forget, 4 weeks, so time for two good long runs without effecting Berlin performance, don't let me down people!

New 800m World Record

Hi All,

    Fair enough, maybe my assumptions judging by peoples repsonses are incorrect which I'll hold my hand up... I just assumed that the majority on here if runners themselves would be interested in running and athletics... obviously this isn't the case...

Infact, this could make a good POLL for RW... "how many people run but aren't actually interested in athletics and wouldn't watch it?"

Then maybe some analysis on WHY? I'd be interested to know this, why people have turned away, drugs cheats? No stars anymore? What is it that's leaving Athletics stadiums empty now and people turning away from the sport over recent years? which then leads to none coverage of world records in papers or TV? There MUST be a reason... did the decline start with Ben Johnson... as I think the timing is right... did everyone just say "I'm not interested, they're all cheats?"

Cheers Pug
