Hi Ali, what are you training for and how's it going?
hey Ricky I remember! Good to hear from you! Yes a marathon sabbatical last year, the wife banned it As we got married last year - can you believe that?! hows your running and what are you in for?
nice to hear from you too Carl and you look to be going great guns. So funny I regularly run Regent's Park and Hampstead! How is your training and what are you aiming for?
training for Edinburgh just started properly last wk. my gen running has Been going quite well. Ran a few halfs last year and pb'd royal parks in 1'42 which was chuffed with. Also got 10k under 45 for first time in January.
have been building a base for the marathon training so last wk was basically
warm up etc and 2m at 6'37 mile pace on the track
4m easy and 2m at 7'14
long run on Sunday - 13.1m at 8'18 pace (was meant to be 8'30, whoops!). Carl not sure you know it but I do a nice out and back up from Finsbury park on the old railway track, cut across to Highgate and then to kenwood end of Heath and a loop on the heath for my long runs. Bloody hilly but gorgeous.
this wk and the rest follows similar pattern ie
tempo somewhere between half to Mara pace
long run (15 this weekend coming)
