Yes definitely a bit of nerves building Leslie.
All the best Gul.
Might plod a few miles this evening- I'm avoiding the club session...
Good result GD and an excellent report. Definitely one for the bucket list when I retire.
Nothing doing here, may pop out for a few gentle ones tonight. My weight is going up about 1lb per day
GD – Well done on your Boston adventure. That sounds really
tough with the heat and the hills. I intend on running Boston as my 100th
marathon in a 5 years!
After two days of gentle 5 milers I ran 8 this morning
including 2.5 miles at MP. It still amazes me just how hard I have to work to
manage MP in taper mode. Now apart from strides I won’t be running anything fast
for the rest of the week. Good luck to my fellow VLM runners! Let’s get it
Madbark is probably planning to run home after the mara rather than come to the pub...
I'm blown away by your target Jools- the very best of luck with that.
My targets; The dream would be 2:58:00 which would be a PB. But I'd be delighted with anything below 3 hours.
Agree your point BB, I ran 6 on Monday with 1 at MP and that was very tough.
Great running Leslie...
Very nice to hear from you Bike It and Keir- and good luck BI with the slow mara- I'm sure you will enjoy.
Really inspirational Jools- Would be great if you meet junior one day for some guidance on her running career. She just received an Elite Great North Run place for September by the way. I think the Marathon is coming in the next 2-3 years! I'm also lacking MP runs- other than my 20 mile race a month ago.
On the weight issue Gul, I typically weigh just over 12 stone in old money. With each mara campaign I tend to dip below 12 with the training. Then as soon as I start to taper it starts to creep back up. I just ate 450g of yoghurt with my lunch...
