Good work on the 800s G-D - nice and tidy - stranger prediction have come true. Keep working on those extra pounds and pray for good weather.
An excellent campaign Gul that deserves a good result. A 5C temperature with moderate breeze sounds perfect. Hope the carbo loading is going to plan - I start tomorrow. Good decision on the gels.
Hope you got out for the MLR DT - it seems to be all coming together nicely.
Hope you can get back to some running Birch. Presumably you're on family support duty at VLM?
Hope the recovery is going well Stevie. Recovery runs for me are at 8:25 m/m pace.
Boston weather looking interesting. Just received an email from the organisers warning about the forecast conditions which they are suggesting will be similar to last year. I'm just hoping the wind is blowing in the right direction. I also took emergency delivery of a full length raincoat to keep dry & warm before the start. Do I still run in vest & shorts or is a thermal vest required?
MP test today, though it may all be academic! 8 miles with 2 miles at MP (on a flat course in good weather conditions). An optimistic 6:40 m/m pace gave a maximum heart rate of 164 - marathon heart rate is usually 165 so in the right ball park.
Heading out to Boston tomorrow morning. Not sure what to expect but will see how the weather is on Monday and how the legs feel! The campaign has gone well and I'm probably in slightly better condition than last year before Brighton and have done a fair amount of Boston specific training.
Good luck for Sunday Gul - negative splits seem to be the order of the day!
SBD, the weather forecast says 16c. York where it hammered down the whole time it was about 11c. I just wore vest and shorts for that and was fine. The problem with more clothing is it is fine at first but then it gets sodden and it makes you even wetter and colder. Though I must ad that within minutes of finishing I was shivering. Sounds good on the mp run.
Best of luck, Gul. You've done the work, just trust in it.
Leslie, fingers crossed you get some uninterrupted training in!
Nice 800s, GD. I've never quite bought into that Yasso thing.
X-post with Birch yesterday. Sorry to hear of your friend. It puts things into perspective.
Nice easy 12 mile mlr last night. Got off work early so was out by 4.30 to enjoy the sunshine in the lanes. Despite me saying I never do this just 2 days ago, 7.58mm average pace. Hr was at 138 though so top end recovery for me. Weighed in this morning at 11,2. Not sure if that is as a result of a longer run last night. Either way it's the lowest I have registered since 3 days before the Yorkshire mara and I am sure I have weighed the morning after evening runs plenty of times. Only 1lb heavier than Yorkshire now.
5 at recovery lunchtime and bodypump tonight then 22 tomorrow morning.
My doctor told me on Wednesday that I shouldn’t run at all. Did I
listen? Did I fxxx! I ran my local Parkrun yesterday in 22:30 then a 10k race
this morning and 8 miles in total. The 10k was a personal worst of about 48:40.
That’s a horrible 12 minutes slower than my PB.
