Just did a 10k, shins were fine, knee started to go a bit at the end, gonna be really touch and go for the Hackney Half I think…

3:28:36 ladsladslads


#503

Christ! Nice one pal, unbelievable going!


#504

Incredible work!

I did 3:36:52. Pretty pleased as it knocks 8 mins off last year’s time. Messed up my pacing though and struggled in the last few


#505

Great time—hope you’re proud of yourself/drunk


#506

Well played, superb!


#507

Nice. I think I saw you around mile 18 and tried to get a look at your name on your number without looking like a freak, but failed


#508

Just looked at Strava Flyby and it doesn’t looked like we passed each other.

Lucky escape - last thing you want to do is start yelling “drownedinsound dot com” to strangers at mile 18 of a marathon :wink:


#509

Marathons are touch move your fucking shits!

I have had a cloud water v 13 and a mikkeller mosaic. On my way back to sheffield to smash the equally nice beers I bought in preparation yesterday and get a Chinese and watch match of the day (I’m not driving )

Good day for aggers


#511

Sounds about right. After Brighton marathon next weekend I plan to have my first triple (veggie) burger w/ peanut butter + chilli from this local burger chain Grubbs. Think it’ll be harder than the run.


#512

Just got beers in and ordered a massive Indian takeaway. Feel like it’s been earned!


#513

sounds powerful. Have a good’un, how are you feeling for it, looks like your training’s been mint


#514

Fantastic effort lads, well done :slight_smile:


#515

Yes!


#516

Feeling good thanks—had a cold for the last week or so but pretty sure it’s waning. I think I just have to trust that I’ve done enough training and not fret about the run, really.


#517

aye, seems like most people come down with maranoia, every runny nose feels like an event ruiner innit


#518

Oh @marckee and @Antpocalypsenow thanks for the donations pals. And thanks generally everyone ITT for all the advice/motivation/strava kudos

Fantastic B of Ls


#519

Excellent stuff @Aggpass and @imipolex! And good luck for this weekend @brainfeeder!

It was my final long training run before I start my taper ahead of the London marathon. Nice and slow meant that it all felt comfortable for the first 33km and then it went a bit wobbly for the last 3km. Having done two 30km+ runs in 8 days, I’ve settled on a sub-4 target now, and hopefully the taper, carb-loading and atmosphere will carry me through.

That sounds like a great plan. Looking at your time, a sub-4 is easily within your grasp. Just enjoy eating lots of pasta for a while now.
