Reikki - I finished in a similar time to you on my 20m at Oakley - 3:08 ish. I ran to normal long-run training pace for seventeen miles, then ran at fast pace for the final three miles.
This morning I tried my damndest to beat my 5K PB from a fortnight ago, and finished slower by four seconds Happy to know I can reproduce the same pace - though it hurts! Followed it up with another 6m including 2m @ MP. Tomorrow is 16m LR. P&D don't make their tapering easy
Just two more weeks!
VMLM was fabulous. I've never run through such a wall of noise before.
3:58:13 Onwards and upwards!
Reiki - congratulations on your great result! A new PB?
Well done Ten - a great result for you after the issues you had to deal with through the winter. A mind of steel to get through that lot and then nail the VMLM....
I haven't been idle either (except not posting) and I am just back from Boston for my second consecutive marathon out there. This time, I learned from my rookie errors of 12 months ago and had a solid training programme behind me from a "pukka" coach.
Long story short - she whipped me into shape and I ran 3:12:54 and finished 16th/1,110 in my age category (60-64) and in the 1st 4,400 or so from a start number of 12061.
Now on a break for a week or two from the rigours of running.....
Brilliant result Mike! London qualification too!
Thanks Ten - I had a GFA for both and chose Boston.
Will be back in London in 2015.....
