Motivation for fatcats!

Observe chumlies! 30k, 3hours and 21mins which is terrific for me.
Music- oh well, Roisin Murphy's new album, Overpowered, liked it a whole lot, some Kings of Leon, probably a grower, Gnarly Barkley, some D Mode, some Dance, and then on the last 2k home, some Korn and some NIN.
Eeee, it were sunny, warm and cloudy-damn you global warming- and I had a right struggle with cramp somewhere at the 25k mark so I ran into a garage and bought one of those flavoured H2O thingies, whereupon I paid the chap in coins and jellies. Not deliberately, but the jellies were stuck to the coins. So that was a wee bit embarrassing as was the part where I fell off the footpath at around the 18k mark.
But no matter! A psychological battle has been won. I can run 30k, and if I can run 30K I can most surely run 44. After all-as I keep saying- it's only a gentle sunday run...on top of the 30k.
I'm starving.

And if you can run 44k you can certainly run 42k.

Time to start tapering?

Cheers cheers.
Yes, I believe it really is. But about that. What's the best thing to do there? Short runs? No runs? More gym? I really think the rowing has been a great help in raising my endurance levels.

Heh he Gimmie you meanie, and it is not 42 either smart arse it is 41.83.

Better news for you Miss Cat!

Wait! Are you all bloody serious? It's not 44k? Oh jesus, this day just keep getting better and better. Why on earth had I got 44 in my head?

5:33 p.m.

No, Nonny, it's 42.195k. I rounded to the nearest kilometre.

Shorter runs, I would go with Fmc. Limit the gym work to core based endurance and skip the rowing for the moment. One more longish run (no more than 20k) in a week's time maybe then just short easy stuff.

Runner's World will have good specific tapering advice.

I'm very excited for you...

No pet it is not 44 but now you've a little less to worry about. I think Wikipedia have good tips for just general advice. But don't by me Aisling will probably know best dude.

You've got that marathon all sewn up now so there's no need to lie awake at night thinking about it.

6:34 p.m.  
Blogger gimme a minute said...

You're making me feel like a pedant, Nonny. Or to put it another way, right at home.

The marathon is not 26 miles but the marginally more ghastly 26 miles and 385 yards.

Or 42.195km.

**Scratches balls in satisfaction**

What ho Sam! I am squiffy with eeee myself. I know it wasn't much more than the last long run, but it's the psychological thingie. And now the velly good news that the race itself is a whole 2k shorter than I thought has lubbed my chaps delightfully. Huzzah!
Medbh, I might just. That's terrific news about the booker and thanks so much for Friday's gingerosity- very merry thanks indeed. Now I must eat baked potatoes with about two inches of butter and chedder cheese melted into them. Ah the other joy of the long distance runner, being able to eat stuff like this and not gain a pound. Double Huzzah!

good for you, you cheshire cat you. no more than 12 miles next week end, and then 5 miles every other day until race day. (by the way, I work in miles, so you do the conversion)

Stipes, stuffed as a goat full of cheese and more cheese. I find your advice to be sterling indeed.

Ahhh got it Gimmie, I thought you had miscalculated, didn’t realise you meant the race was longer than 26 miles. My apologies.

I see a showdown on the horizon between your fictional self and mine own. (Go see Manuel!).
