You took me off the list Joe, are you trying to tell me you don't want me there? Looking forward to seeing those trunks make an appearance again. That's a bugger about Katie. Hopefully she can recover soon and take back the title of best runner in the house.
I'm getting someone from my club to pick up my stuff from the expo. Too much hassle. I've decided to try for 2:45 now, we'll see. Felt good doing 3km at MP yesterday but my legs feel a bit tight, crampy and generally fragile. Might just be in my head.
I wonder if lottery funding still pays for a UKA doctor to travel with him to give him his infusions.
Wind turning more westerly and getting stronger, which is no good. Now only forecast for 20 max which is ok by me.
Sounds like definite maranoia/taper madness, HA. My legs have also been feeling so
slow and heavy.
John you’re certainly
making the most of early morning running whilst here. I’ve been enjoying the
Joe Can’t make my
mind up on my cap or not. Wore it today – good for blocking out sunlight, but
head felt hotter whilst wearing it. Never really run in sunglasses before, but
might consider if sunny.
Nice race prep, Hazel.
I also can’t decide whether to wear sun cream on Sunday or not. Who’d have
thought I was relatively experienced in this marathon running lark?!
Steve no chance
of a WR if it is the hottest on record. Hope it’s a good smack down at the
front either way.
Westy – keeping us
on tenterhooks! When will you decide for sure?

seems to have reverted back to that of a couple of days ago – 17 – 19C, but as
Westy says, now a headwind on the Embankment. I imagine I am too stupid not to
go off at PB pace, but will see on the day. I’ve been trying to run at the
hottest time of the day in an effort to acclimatise, and did 6 sauna sessions
with the final one on Tuesday. Not sure how much they’ll really help with the
reality of 3 hours running.
Wanted to do 6
x lap at MP lap easy at the track on Tuesday, but travellers had moved in! Not
on the track itself, but to the attached car park. So the whole place was
locked up. Managed to do 4 lots of the equivalent on the school grass track
yesterday. A great resource now it’s the summer term – as long as you don’t mind
your tracks not flat, of indeterminate length and very boggy underfoot. 3 x 90s
MP efforts today over 4M. Rest tomorrow then easy parkbuggyrun on Saturday.
Anyone have any drinking recommendations for 1pm on Sunday? Would be a shame
not to make the most of the sun! Would be good to have a forum alcohol debrief.
