Hello! Sorry for the long absence (yet again). I can't remember whether I said on my last post that I had signed up for another marathon after the DNS at Abingdon. I had intended to do a proper post last week but came down with another cold/fluey bug and really wasn't sure if I was going to run it until Saturday. Anyway, I ran the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon yesterday and finished in 4.24.53 (by my Garmin – still waiting for official time). Will do a proper race report soon as there are stories about the time (and some of the mile splits). It was also 27 miles due to the route being changed on the way back because the tide came in. I enjoyed it but the last few miles were brutal. Shades – you will be very pleased to know that I have already done a recovery run today (with eldest son who is already on school holidays) and my legs are not too bad at all.
I need to go back and read what I have missed but I know from Strava that there has been some great running from BigG and SK has been winning lots of things. Also – Cal – really glad to see you are back running.
Big G - presumably when you are running marathons at roughly a minute per mile slower than PB pace, from a training point of view they are akin to a 26.2-mile training run?
