Yes Muddy I meant fitness effect in terms of the marathon. I find hammering myself for 26.2 miles soon undoes any gains 2/3 @ MP might have
Agree about the build-up part of it Macca. To be clear, I’ve no intention of dropping it from my future plans. It’s just funny how it often feels so hard. Sounds like a good plan for Sunday.
Great attitude towards your MP tester SQ, clearly dodgy GPS though.
Good to hear from you Westy, glad you’re running again.
Enjoyable 10 miler along the canal this morning for me. Saw the first ducklings of the spring, and several swans are nesting so cygnets should follow soon. Off down to London tomorrow. I'm thinking of doing parkrun on Saturday - any recommendations? Tempted by Bushy as I've never done it, but suspect it will be insanely busy. Mile End is the closest one to me I think.
Full blown taper maranoia everywhere Right, I've added you guys plus Mo and Kipchoge into my Tracker
Let the stalking commence
Excellent Tapering madness everywhere from the London crowd, everyone stuffing themselves (even to the point of nicking their kids dinners). Get those carbs down you Macca!
Go on spoons - do a Jooligan!
Well if you have not guessed I have not died and my HR is almost back to normal, weird stuff going on for 10 days there - I did wonder as NE said if the watch was loose or it had gone bonkers on me.
NE - I think you are right re the LT physiology, combination of the 1&2 (and more)
Oh and Hi Westy.....
Sure you will be smashing it soon Westy...Quick recovery back.
Muddy - the beetroot juice is better dinking cold as it takes most of the taste away.. Get it down you!
All you Londoners nervous yet...
Muddy - that will be the beet it juice
Ready a few articles a lot is expected this year with probably the greatest elite line up for London (and that's excluding the P&D forum runners)
With almost perfect conditions expected, Paulas WR might go and even Kipchoge might set another new WR...
