My #asics262 journey to Paris: Sub-3:30 Malcolm

Amazing report Malcs!!

You did so well! Really felt for you when you mentioned the calf problem - that must have been horrendous feeling it that early on ... but well done on pushing through and nailing your target!! Testamanet to your stubborness!! Well done!!

I tend to think how much I need a wee for a large proportion of my long runs which is usually a bit offputting. Also whether that nasty-looking dog is going to bite me.

Good timing though:

Hey Malcs

Wishing you the very best of luck … not that you need it as you are going to be BRILLIANT!! You'll love the course and the support is brilliant. Remember you're not allowed to stop and walk … Steve will be watching

Have an amazing time. Can't wait to hear how fantastic you've been and how much you've enjoyed it. You've put the training in … the race is the fun part. AND you get a medal at the end.

Hey Malcs!

You'll be brilliant. Have you looked at the course gradient? The last section is downhill … so definitely a good course for a negative split! You're going to ace this. I've got no doubt at all. 

Best of luck!! And no getting flu or damaging yourself in the final countdown!!!

Glad your calf is feeling better Malcs! Now stop playing with it! Didn't your Mother tell you that picking and poking at things makes them worse!!

So impressed with your running so far! You are doing brilliantly .... now I just need you to promise you won't beat my Paris time last year and we'll stay friends

Had a funny session at club last night but it was a good one:

4 x 1 mile reps at 7 min/miles with a min recovery, then 2 x 1 km reps at 6:15, then 4 x 200m reps at sub-6. Felt brilliant afterwards and really enjoyed it! Am loving running with a club and training with other people

Great session Malcs!

And more successful than mine! I was running my reps in the dark this evening with my head torch and the batteries conked out after 2nd rep! Couldn't see anything so thought I'd better not risk it so ran home and finished them off on the treadmill. Not the same, is it? 

I always end up with a KFC after the 24hr races and marathons. I won't normally touch it but is the only thing that appeals afterwards … and I always feel as though I've earned a bit of crappy food!!

Yep Steve - (as usual!) you're right. Better to nail a cracking sub 3:30 time, Malcs than go all out and end up kicking yourself for doing first half too hard. You'll def do a brilliant sub 3:20 soon so why not just have a PB for the next TWO marathons!!

Morning Malcs,

Yes I guess so … I just took it week-by-week … the time flew by! Sounds as though you're running brilliantly and so nice to have so many there! Am highly envious of Angela's new Garmin too. May have to push her in the hedge and attempt to pry it off her wrist while she's distracted …

Yep am back into marathon training - back on it from last week. First few sessions last week felt a bit more tiring than usual but feeling good again now and seem to have picked up a bit of speed. And the marathon long runs don't seem quite so daunting for some reason …

Sorry to hear you're not running at the moment Steve. Sounds as though your training group are doing BRILLIANTLY though! 3 secs off WR? Wow!!

Should I DROP my mileage to start this training schedule?

I've downloaded a marathon schedule for an Autumn marathon but the mileage is less than I'm doing at the moment and less days a week.
