training has been good! just inconsistent logging

Today
run 13km or so at 5.00km ish pace
Yoga 30m
mediation 1hr

upto 80km/weeks now

hit a half marathon pb of 1 hr 32 m 50 s last week - solo time trial, that's 4.24/km pace and course had 200m elevation with no taper - think I'm on course for 3.30 marathon!

another attempt to get some logging consistency!!

running > 3 weeks out from marathon, last long run of 22miles done (@4.59 pace but elapsed time was a little longer due to some GI trouble HA). This came the day after a road relay race (6km - 22m46s pace and also a 5k PB of 19.19 in there apparently). Now going to start cutting back mileage a little bit this week then a lot more the couple weeks after. Feel well on track for 3.30 and secretly thinking 3.15ish may be on the cards considering it's a very flat marathon and all my training has involved lots of hills. Peak mileage week last week at 60 miles.

lifting > meh just hitting upper body 1x week and doing some light lower body stuff ~1x a week

meditation/yoga stuff > eased up a bit on this, still doing a bit most days but simply haven't had time to do 1hr/day plus all the running... once the marathons over hopefully get back into it

life > got a job in New Zealand starting in January so will soon be moving to the otherside of the world for a year, exciting (but stressful OH so much paperwork to do).

First marathon under my belt, did the Manchester marathon in 3h 27m 40s.

Very happy with the time, main goal was sub 3.30.Was on track to smash that but developed some serious cramping over the last few miles which were a real struggle, but overall amazing experience. Certainly won't be my last!

Not really sure what training holds now, for sure want to add some strength stuff back in though and probably dedicate a bit less time to running than I have the last few months!

Awesome!!! 3:27 is no joke either!  :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :personal-record:
Target training paces (min/km), calculated from 5K PR 23:06 :
Easy run : 5:52
Tempo run : 4:53
VO2-max run :4:24
Speed form run : 4:05

it's the biggest trick in the run game.. go slow to go fast. it doesn't make sense until it smacks you in the face and you're like ....... wtf?

Thanks!

DOMs are out of this world, had a lot of DOMs in my life but this is unlike anything I've ever experienced! Quads being by far the worst (I guess they take the brunt of the eccentric loading?) Thankfully joints etc feel good! Balls of my feet also feel sore af/bruised...ran in carbon plated hokas (rocket x) which probably are a bit harder over the distance than I'm used to (they felt great in the race though).

Maybe will do a very light jog tomorrow, we'll see.

I would guess that those last few grinding miles did it. When i 'hit the wall' , if that's what its called and that's what happens, i suddenly get insanely stiff, it feels like am not running anymore, no joints no tendons no bounce, just force pushing my body with leg muscles. Doing a few miles like that with the added muscle fatigue of another 20+ PR pace miles on your back, would make perfect sense to cause a total quads annihilation to me.
