By all means put some miles in and get used to the longer distances. Just see which distance you prefer.

Don't get caught up in the longer is better hype! Welcome to the gang

Good stuff Phil - sounds a really good time in those conditions too, will have to have a look at the results. As regards the marathon - happy with the speed, but the endurance is going to need to be looked at quite urgently . Only up to 15 miles so far...August IS mileage month.

Thanks for the comments on the Javelin - I actually think it was a no throw anyway! with proper coaching I think i could smash the 20m barrier

Matt - Well done on the Thunder run - I was actually asked at training to run with the Luton lot, but, well it's a bit of a mission tbh. I will have to find out who went, I know Tom Mead was definitely in the team.

Just 12 x 200 strides for me tonight. Nice easy pre race stuff. Lovely..

Yes the javelin. Have actually no idea whatsoever how to throw it, whereas with the shot I'm poor but nudging average and the LJ was actually better than last year!

Just an hour today, another morning at a triathlon where the missus is massaging. Felt a bit bad running past the runners on their leg, but not that bad. Realised session plus field events equals VERY achy legs. About 8 tomorrow then quiet Tuesday before the big one On Wednesday at Watford.

Job done mate, race sounded like it was set up for you in the end, must be a great feeling to feel that strong at the finish too. All set up nicely for Lyon then!

Matt- got asked to do the TR by the Luton boys at training but had to turn them down, but sounds a good laugh. 

LBAC family fun day at MK track today, my 5 year old was most excited, which augers well I suppose. So after the club champs 5 & 3k race got on the track to do 4 sets of 600,400,200, with a min between reps and 2 mins between sets. The 600's were supposed to be 1.48, 400's at 68 and 200's at 32. The 600's felt great at 1.43 average, 4's on 67 and the 200's down to 30.2 for the last one. 

Then grunted to a 5.98 shot put, pathetic 11m in the javelin and 3.25 long jump  I class myself as a runner, rather than an athlete ????

Good luck tomorrow Dean, shame the weather is a bit shite yet again. Yes hopefully the 3k will go ok on Wednesday.

Good news Iron, sure minibus will be fine soon!

Ric. I caught the lucky end of uni from 90-94, so had it all apart from the cushy job enjoying diamond league tonight. So glad Bolt is bad in the groove and will at least challenge wanker Gatlin.

Berlin Marathon 2015

Phil P going for it again, these long runs are scary! Only just really started last Sunday with a 15 miler, so need to ramp it up a bit from here on in.

Mileage is OK, around 70 odd pw, been targetting a 3000m at Watford next weds so been keeping the reps a bit shorter.

As it's my 2nd marathon (and my last!) I'm going to train as usual and just generally do a longer run at thr weekend (peaking at 24). If it's a cock up in Berlin, well c'est la vie

I do think you can run well when you are a little late and aren't hanging about worrying about the race etc.

New courses are good too, not knowing whats to come..and then if its particularly tough..saying 'well i'm not doing that again '

Bloody hell v quiet tonight! Good session Dachs, good to we some proper tailored training going on.  

Will be quick as nearly half asleep- hardest track session of the year tonight, probably as feel quite tired this week. It was 10 x. 600 with 80 secs (I think) recovery.  They were 1.45,1.44,1.45,1.44,1.45,1.45,1.48,1.45,1.44,1.43. Thank god that's over is all I can say????

Is Sweatshop damaging its brand?

Posted: 23/07/2015 at 13:48

The Start Fitness bloke at their tent at the national relays told me that Sweatshop would be full up of Karrimor stuff within a few months.

Good for them though I suppose...
