  • Big G - yes re Tri club, you just won't apply for an EA licence with them, in EA/UKA's eyes that makes you a 2nd claim member with them. Forecast looks good for tomorrow, wall to wall sunshine, a little cooler than I'd like but that's OK the sun sh…
  • Big G - you should be able to join the Tri club as a full member without switching your allegiance from the Trotters?   But more expensive I guess, but with the LC access that would be worth it. Good news on declaring you are AF in writing, now on …
  • Big G - I've never been disappointed by the fish and chips in Wales.  You're doing well combining your WAY weekends with your marathons   Good speed session with the Trotters, are you going back to the Tri club soon? It may all come together at Rot…
  • Marco -- I managed to get the training paces after 5 attempts. Put in your target time  and current fitness, I put in a 40 minute 10k for you, and it will come up with your race times.  Then go back to the top and there's an orange drop down box an…
  • Marc - normally it would say in the training plan how long the rest/recovery time or distance would be.  Such as the other intervals you mentioned where the recovery is to jog for 100m.  I think 3 minutes is a bit too long you don't run these interv…
  • Cal - the fish and chips is pre race not post race.  My favourite pre race meal, have done all my best races after fish and chips.   I have a friend that does the same and she had fish and chips before her first Ironman last year.  Not bothered abou…
  • marc - I'm assuming that using a race predictor from your 5k and 10k race times that you are predicted a 1:30 half marathon time? Re the speedwork 7 miles, I expect the other 3 miles is warm up and warm down.   There's no way you would go and do in…
  • Jon - at least one marathon plus those long runs.   If you're still short of time then do your 4 x half marathon distance training runs on consecutive days, that will help.
  • Big G - that's a shame about the Dutch race and sad circumstances for the cancellation. I'm off to Llanelli next weekend for an ultra but not staying in Llanelli this time but a few miles away so have already targeted another chip shop. Last year …
  • Steve - you're certainly getting the miles in, you deserve a very good PB at Edinburgh. Big G - that's a tough route you chose today.  Maybe you're still a bit tired after your house move.   I'm still feeling a bit bleugh but I'm no worse so hopef…
  • Big G - Yes, good idea to email 100MC just to check.  Sounds like it should be OK as long as they have a permit or insurance. I was invited to Germany one year over the Xmas period to run 12 marathons in 12 days but they weren't proper events, just …
  • Finally worked out how to post links.😁
  • https://www.100marathonclub.org.uk/members/club-rules/
  • Cal - that's a more sensible target over the 2 races. I was just checking.😁
  • Big G -  100 MC rule...Existing events that have been running for 3 or more years as at 31/12/2014 and traditionally have had a field of less than 25 participants shall not be subjected to this limit.  
  • Yes, found it in the rules. Sorry, can't work out how to post a link using my phone!
  • Big G - I never have any problems using up unallocated budget. I am once again saving up for that elusive sofa. Looks like most of the Infinity events are multi terrain, a mix of good trail and tarmac but the one I've entered is 1.68 mile laps with…
  • Big G - thanks, duly noted.    Have you done any of the Infinity Running events in Wales?   I contacted them yesterday about their Top Gear race at the end of June and it's tarmac so I've just entered, venue looks lovely, I think it's laps of the l…
  • I will post up the April marathons on next week's list.  So far I have one marathon for Cal, Ian, Steven, Iain & Khanivore.    Big G - I only have Rotterdam listed for you, I suspect there might be a few more ?  
  • Cal - what are you using as your MP, the pace you're planning to run at Vienna?   Sub 4 perhaps   Rest day for me today, except for circuits which as usual I find quite tough but I think I am starting to make small improvements.   Love my 2nd break…
  • Big G - now you've moved you'll have a lot of new running routes to source.  I expect you still have plenty of hills round there. 😉 Sub 2:30 would be a brilliant time for YT, I think he's capable of doing that.
  • Big G - well that's promising from YT that he has another minute or so still in hand for another PB.   Impressive that he did his 2 x 10 milers the following day, he's so disciplined about his training.  I do so hope he does his hoped for time at VL…
  • The Man - that's a very reasonable price for the certificate, sensible doctor you've got there.
  • Big G - that's great news about YT, I know he was so disappointed last year when the same race was cancelled due to snow.  A very good PB from him too as I expect conditions weren't perfect on Sunday. Steve - I expect your few laps will be another …
  • Steve - are you doing Endure 24 again this year? Cal - I think I probably had a tendency to a pelvic tilt anyway and 5 years of horse riding daily I'm sure has exaggerated it.   My Pilates instructor at times has tried to correct me but she says I …
  • If you have done lots of marathons in your recent past then your need for long runs is not so important and you can get away with just training on high mileage, but a good bit higher than 50mpw. If you haven't been doing lots of marathons then you …
  • If you have a favourite road shoe check and see if they make a trail version, they often do.   Should then suit you well
    in Trail Shoes Comment by SHADES March 18
  • Cal - maybe stick with your road shoes for parkrun at least until after your marathon, so as not to give that achilles a reason to be sore. I have anterior pelvic tilt too and have had it since I used to do lots of horse riding in my teens.  I don'…
  • Cal - you will in time start to recover more quickly from races so you can squeeze a few more races in should you wish to. Good to know your exercises aren't a chore to do. Robert - you seem to be managing your PF fairly well.  Hope it's OK today …
  • Go and see your GP, if it's a sports injury then they can refer you to the physio.  If it's anything else then your GP can deal with it.
