Paris Marathon 2015

TD, a pal recently took a month off running as they went on a cycling holiday. She cycled miles every eay. Came back and ran a half in reasonable time but a few mins short of her best. She said she felt sluggish. However, 2 weeks later, and a few training runs but nothing special, did another half, this time she felt great and produced a 2 minute pb / 1:25. She maintains that the endurance and fitness gained from all the cycling was still in her legs. My point is, you probably would be able to get by on cycling and 1 run a week. You may not hit the heights of 2012 because I think results like that come from higher mileage/marathon specific training, like wot you did, but I'm sure you could run a decent ish marathon by your standards.

Selbs, epic report and race

Bains, congrats on the bambino

12 miles on Dartmoor today 7.30 mins per mile. Legs had nothing more to give

250 miles in the car, Plymouth to home in London.

Arrived to find package with some Brooks Mach XC spikes that i ordered. Opted for half a size up on normal running shoe. Can feel a little gap at the end tho it's pretty slight. Think I made the right choice, it feels a snug fit. Ok who's doing London XC Champs at Parly Hill on 15/11. Marders?

My Pal is new to the game, ran a 4:50 in Paris this year at her first marathon. Since then she has worked very hard on her diet and training. She's transformed herself physically and ran 3.58 at Loch Ness in September. 3 weeks after that, she motored to an impressive 3.44 at Abingdon, and 7 days on she's paced a very even 3.41. It's fantastic progress, she's already gunning for a Boston time sub3.35 in London. Its a great story, she's a character, very determined. She's got the bit between her teeth at the moment and I think there will be lots more to come from her in 2015.

TJB - aim 2:55:52 it read the same upside down on my fridge magnet and so I consider it to be my best time.


TR - very handy if you knock it off and then replace it quickly and carelessly if you are in a rush. (did I mention? great PB by the way)

as long as it ain't a 03:00:30 or even worst a 3:00:03 - i'll be happy.

Frankfurters. I hope you don't get the wurst possible weather conditions for the race this weekend. Have a cracking run you lot, Jools you 47kg bag of dynamite!  I thought I was light at 71/72 but then on this thread I'm the company of the lean mean running folk making me one of "slower heavy ones!"  . Enjoy the lovely beers after you lot ....
