OO- Don't dwell on the one bad run, focus on all the other great ones this last few months (Obviously I would completely not do what I am suggesting here and would of course dwell on the bad run, it's just easier to hand out the obvious advice than accept it!). Enjoy the trip and bagging another sub 3.
Gul, just like the e-mails will land at the very end of today, as they did last Friday, there's no way those bags are arriving before Friday!!
Legs feel a bit tired today after yesterdays session, just an easy 9m MLR today which is a nice drop down from the 12-13 I've been doing on a Wednesday.
I've started watching the London weather forecast for a week sunday. I don't know why, it'll change many times between now and then and I cant do anything about it anyway. However right now i'd take that forecast.
Yes, particularly if it's raining and/or with no phone to play with.
Im in blue wave 2 -9.36-9.39, which in essence means wave 3 as champs will go then wave 1 then wave 2. I've seen another guy with a 2.38 (already had a ballot place so they wouldn't allow him to upgrade to champs) in blue wave 1 so it seems some speedy folk are going off blue. I am just a bit worried at 3m having started 6 mins behind yellow wave 1 for eg merging with other starts with runners running 30s per mile slower.
I recall however that Blue is generally regard as the fastest start in terms of the amount of downhill in first 3m??
SBD- I did think yesterday, you'll be well placed to be leading the race for the first 3m, which would be a great experience!
I have chiropractor this afternoon and a sports massage next Tuesday. Looking forward to ironing out the creases.
Lorenzo, good to hear from you. I think you son is right to be a bit cautious on his first marathon but sounds like he's sandbagging to me with the 4 hour chat, unless by sub 4 he means considerably sub 4!
Jools, keep plugging away, you'll be back in full swing in no time.
I am still trying to work out how London are doing the whole start set up, if Mrs L is a 10.45 start. Are they setting a load off in quick succession waves, then having a little break then going again? If a wave goes every 3 mins off 4 different starts that's circa 80 waves an hour which would surely cover circa 50k runners? I guess the waves themselves might be a lot smaller than usual, which would make sense as taking all these other covid measures then jam packing pens would seem ridiculous. I am hoping with not having everyone turning up at the same time the train will be much quieter and so will the toilet queue.
I'm off out lunchtime ish for 8m low tempo as what will really be my last work out of substance. Should be tomorrow, but I have a boozy work function all day starting at midday (not ideal but having not had to attend one in 2 years nearly I could hardly refuse) so want to get this run done today in case there's urgent work stuff be done in the morning. Todays 5m recovery can more easily slot in around that or move to Saturday.
After a week of no booze and very clean eating, I have gone from 2lb over Dorney weight to 1lb under this morning. Granted, I have felt hungry at times but it's a short sharp blast for the greater good.
