Kick on the starter give it all you got

April 7, 2013

Another boring blog…

Two out of three of my sessions this week were good, I’ll take it. The Monday and Saturday sessions on the roads went well but Wednesday’s track session was sub-par. Wednesday was windy and cold and times were slower for everyone, but my 1600m intervals were even slow for the conditions. Fortunately I came back with some solid 10 minute intervals on Saturday, which were close to the same pace as my 1600’s.

The plan this week is to leave Tuesday night and get to Rotterdam by mid-day on Wednesday. The real taper began today and this week will be very light leading up to the marathon. As of now I don’t know of any live race feed.

They are calling for seasonably warm weather on Sunday with some forecasts as high as 22C! Let’s hope it doesn’t warm up until later that afternoon (race starts at 10:30am local time).

Looks as though Paul is getting close to finishing Road to London… From his twitter:

    Best of luck in Rotterdam. I hope the weather co-operates and you run a kick-ass time. I’ll be thinking about you while I’m in Boston.
