Linton,your HM looks great!Nice downhill after mile 6,just let the brakes off.Like Hazelnut said run the hills by effort.Get yourself out for some gentle runs that'll help with restlessness.I always find it hard sleeping the night before a race,it just plays on my mind.
I presume the camels were ridden.I heard the beer tent was drunk dry by the young farmers, so a good time by all.
enrvuk,you need to plan your busy social life around your LSR! Nice interval session as well.
Nice run,Cal.Always exciting getting new running kit,better than the dentist!
Speedy run Mollie.My dogs help themselves to the blackberries this time of year as well.
Just a 5 miles recovery run yesterday afternoon,nice and easy.
Cal/Hazelnut,Ive been reading up about the benefits of the longer or shorter taper.I'm inclined to go for the longer one for obvious reasons.Just wondered how long your taper is for a mara.
Nice run enrvuk,you have to be disciplined doing HR training,staying in your zone.
11.8 miles yesterday evening.3.5 miles @HMP and 5.5 miles @ MP,hard run and very warm but I felt good.Next couple of weeks going to do a few more runs @ MP just to build up some confidence.
Sorry to hear about your knee,Linton,after all of your hard work.Your knee doesn't sound good,if it's like this tomorrow I'd be reluctant to race on it,as you don't want to do any serious damage to your knee in the long term.Get it iced and elevated today and see how it is tonight and then make a decision about tomorrow.Get your knee seen to next week as well.
Hazelnut,good luck with your hill race.
Great parkrun,Cal,sounds like a tough course.Good day for the vets.
Mollie,your coastal run sounds idyllic,nice start to your day.
5 miles recovery run yesterday evening.Spotted two air balloons,I think they were going home after a display over in Oswestry.
