I'd be tempted to stick with the tried and trusted vest Stevie but if you're planning to wear the new one definitely trial! Might have been a type on the carbo loading diary timing!
Interesting on the yellow start DT. Essentially the old FGFA start but with a new name. Definitely more kudus to "FGFA" rather than "yellow"!
I'm flying out on Friday Gul arriving in Boston early afternoon. May just have time to hit the exhibition.
Only a 5 mile recovery run today - all that was allowed on the taper schedule - so don't really feel like I've run!
Good luck to nicko and Stevie for Sunday. You've done the training so go out there and have a great race.
All the very best Stevie and Nick! Run like the wind and embrace the
I’m happy to report I’ve managed a few runs over the last fortnight. I
went 31 days without any running but have completed two slow Parkruns and a
few other short runs. I’m still in pain and had to ditch one run on Monday
after 2 miles. However, after another 4 day’s rest, today’s Parkrun was less
painful. It was a leisurely 23 mins but easier than last week’s 26 mins. The only
way is up!
Good to see you back running Badbark - hopefully you're back to pain-free running soon.
A good last Long Run G-D. What's the thinking on the 2-week taper?
No need to dwell on the Parkrun time Lorenzo just keep watching the Boston video and study the course profile.
Sounds like a tough time at the relays Speedy - at least you can just focus on London now.
That's a good time for the relay leg DT - the competition was pretty fierce so just to be there was an achievement.
Final MLR before Boston - 13.1 miles late morning. Took it relatively easy for the first 9 miles, c. 7:40 m/m, and then picked up the pace for the last 5K to 6:35 m/m. Probably closer to tempo pace than MP but felt nice and relaxed.
Only four more days of running before catching the flight to Boston. Must be time to start monitoring the weather forecast and agonising over MP ...
