WOW- just a few days not posting and boom lots of chat to catch up on. Well done everyone some really impressive last LSR out there and you all seem a lot more organised than me.
Ive had a good week considering what happened the prev Sunday with my knee. I have been very sensible and did an easy 5m, spinning class, good steady 7m and then on Sunday a brilliant 13m with last 5m at MP and I did my stopping/walking every 3m for drink as practice for big day. Walking and drinking really helped as it was a hot day and it made me get proper fluids down me. I reckon i only lose about 20/30 sec max by doing this but the. Benefits are huge.
my knee is not perfect and I'm very conscious about it so I'm again not going to do anything stupid in the next 2 weeks. Planning on spinning class tomorrow followed by easy run Wednesday followed by Steady run Thursday and spinning on Saturday. sounds a lot but the time/distance is low compared to what I was doing.
intresting reading about start, I haven't done a really busy city marathon for a while so that. could be frustrating or may be good in controlling the start.
got my email and as I'm going with 209 sports tours I got all the info from them as well.
good luck everyone with this weeks training, take it steady as the hard work is done and now it's the mental side that takes overl.
