Overdone it?

McF - my winter tempo pace is a struggle at the moment too, I'm assuming I'm still recovering from the marathon not that I've suddenly lost all fitness. Well done on 6th place, always nice to be top 10.

Get well soon DT, bank holiday illnesses don't you just love them.

Good luck in Edinburgh Tommy, conditions look good, the wind seems to be dying down at last.

Steve there's engineering works on the Edinburgh - Glasgow line so most services are taking over an hour.

 To Madbee for the new 10k PB - that sub 40 will come. Congrats to the McFlous on the medal success. 

Tommy sounds like a decent race, sometimes the times just don't come and it's hard to work out why. I've had a few shockers where I've been trained felt like a PB was on the cards only to run a terrible race. I am trying to analyse things more to see if I can find a pattern...

Been really busy with work so haven't been running much but did do a race at the weekend. It was an undulating 7.5 miles with an uphill finish. My time was crap and my legs feel trashed but it was a lovely day out running along country roads seeing sheep and donkeys on the way. 1st FV40, my OH won the race he's on fire at the moment.

Well done on the ultra Tommy, can you walk down stairs at the moment? 

Last week I finally started running again after London and am quite enjoying the easy paced runs, today's route took in a donut shop, French bakery and an Italian cake shop. I've got a HM in a few weeks but I'm not really sure what to do in preparation for it, I'm sort of doing the P+D recovery mesocycle but maybe I should throw in some L-T miles next week?

Good luck for tomorrow McF how far are you running?

Done spin or RPM a few times, the worst thing is the music lots of covers played at a horrible volume. I like the idea of the dialogue DT you could invent a backstory, the fridge broke down and ruined your blood bag so your hematocrit is low, you are running on pan y agua for the first time…things are getting tough.

Mad you will smash your 10k time

SFF I listened to the part about how to treat it and he wrote it all down for me. I'm due a visit to my phiz anyway, I like to support local businesses.  

First marathon- is sub 3 hrs going to be possible?

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 09:32

My OH ran his first marathon in sub 3 with a HM time of 1.19 on relatively low mileage (under 40 miles a week) in his first year of running so it is possible. His training methods at the time were just to go out and run, a lot of it off road and up hills.

Hi Bob!

Glad you're back running, sounds like you are well on the road to a return to full fitness. Did my first run since London, it was on hilly ground and into the wind so was pretty slow but I'm pleased that I don't appear to have done myself any lasting damage in the marathon.

I had an interesting talk with a sports massage therapist recently, when explaining my history of injuries to him he asked if I had any problems with my jaw. As it happens I do, he reckons some of my running issues are caused by this. He explained it all in great detail and drew a diagram of my disfunction but I wasn't really listening. But I thought I'd put it out there in case anyone else has jaw issues...

P&D spring marathon 2016

Tri - well done on the Fling, was following a friend's progress throughout the race, it was quite exciting. You sound in remarkably good shape compared to her, she says she feels like she's been hit by a bus.

AWC - well done on the finish, getting sun burn is crazy it's still snowing up here.

Ramjet - hope you feel better soon, running with a virus is horrible and as others have said the training won't go to waste.

BR - mental.

No running for me all week, or walking due to a non-marathon foot injury. I can weight bear again so will do some light jogging, eventually. I've been using this time to catch up on drinking, lying about the house and over eating.
