Hi everyone, hope you're all keeping well. My parkrun times are slowly coming down so fingers crossed I can go sub-40 at the Salford 10K a week on Sunday.
Interested about your approach to the autumn marathon Puffy and Minni. When you say minimal mileage how much is that per week? I am not going for the full marathon but doing the Chester Metric marathon which I think works out at 16 miles ish. I'll cheer you on at the start line Mr P. I can remember you cheering me on near the finish line last year.
For the York marathon Reiki they may do the 10 mile race like the metric at Chester. The marathon runners go off first and then an hour later the metric runners are set off. The metric is an out and back of the final eight miles of the marathon. What does the course for the 10 miles look like? It seemed to work ok at Chester last year. Hopefully they won't set you all off together.
I really don't know how you all do these 24 hour races. I just feel exhausted reading about them. A few of my friends are making the leap to triathlon at the moment with some going for the Ironman in Bolton next year. I can't believe they are paying ??420 to put themselves through it!
