    As there seems to be a number of NSC runners preparing for a marathon, I thought you might be interested in this. I can't commend it as such - just putting it out there in case it's of use. Happy running!

    Very interesting and very accurate (43 seconds out) based on my last marathon attempt.

    Only had an hour to run today so hit the hills. Ran up through the Withdean tunnel (turned to the left) and then up Dyke Road to King George VI then down to Hove Park before going up Woodland. Back downhill to Withdean then up Peacock Lane before heading home. 7 miles with a 600+ foot climb.

    Hill running always seems to make the time fly in comparison to flatter runs, before I knew it I was 6 miles in and having to come back home.

      Super Saturday was probably the greatest virtual race day in NSC history!

      A word for @The Complete Badger. I'd take this week very very easy. Massive taper to 25% of mileage and go into next Sunday raring to go. Rest till Wednesday and then do 5x 1 mile intervals at just below race pace. Followed by 24 to 25 minute Parkrun on Saturday with a couple of 100m at half marathon pace. You'll enjoy Brighton Half more. Time to reign in.
      Thanks. These kind of Ďwhat would an experienced runner doí type posts are great.

      My plan isnít too different to what youíve said other than Iím going to get out tomorrow. Iím working from home so a trundle around Shoreham seems obvious. Also, after a bad day yesterday I want the confidence boost of knowing that my legs do still work. So Iím going to run tomorrow, then something short and fast like you say on Wednesday and then Iím running parkrun on Saturday pacing my sister to something around 29 minutes. After Brighton next week Iím going to take a proper rest for a reset. Iíve run 470km already this year which is a bit too much I think. Then I can hit the distance hard again ahead of the Gloucester 20 (25/03), Brighton Marathon (15/04 - subject to getting a place) and Edinburgh Marathon (27/05).

      A friend of mine recently quit the Eagles, saying it was becoming more of a social club and less of a proper running club. Everyone is going to have a different experience, but I'd be wary. As also pointed out, their name is an abomination too!
      They can do one in that case. I can almost forgive the name but as someone who doesnít drink I donít want a club that is more interested in socialising than running.

      Shoreham really needs a club, just like it needs a parkrun. Itís a gap in the market waiting to be filled.

      Rare hilly run round west Hove for me, down visiting the family this weekend and managed to squeeze a long run in while they babysat.

      Just for @The Complete Badger, I ventured out at 5:38am for 3.3 miles of hills and stuff. Doesn't make up for missing a long run yesterday, but it's a start...

      Garmin doesn't like the Undercliff and Cliff top route to Saltdean. I ran on the flat bottom route yesterday. When I wasn't in the sea I was on top of the cliffs according to Strava. @big nuts ran the 700' triple of Snakey, Woodland Drive and Peacock Lane and I matched him with a 700' ascent along the flat undercliff.
      It's the only discrepancy I've found.

      I come seeking NSC running wisdom...

      After popping a hamstring at Hove park on the first Saturday of 2018, I made my parkrun return this weekend with a very sedate 27.22. After 5 weeks of recovery/kicking my heels I'm trying to build my distances back up, went out yesterday and completed 10.8 miles in 1hr 40. Thing is, today my legs ache a lot and with an eye on the Brighton half this coming weekend what should my plan be for this week? I was planning a couple more runs to get me closer to the 13.1 distance as I was dead on my feet at the end of yesterday but I don't really want to risk the hammy popping again! If I can get through the half I'm reasonably confident I can build up in time for the Brighton marathon.

      What should I do?
      You dont need eyes to see...

      [QUOTE=knocky1;8341729]Bad news for @big nuts and @Ninja Elephant they missed someone sneaking up on the outside. Well done @Artie Fufkin. Found this from Strava. Nearly thought you'd taken my AG % lead but I manage to hang on.

      Thanks very much for adding my parkrun time & AG on Saturday knocky1! Didn't think I had the legs to go sub 19 at the moment.

      I would listen to your legs, do a bit of core work perhaps and plenty of stretching but I wouldn't be looking to run again before sunday. Maybe go out for a few gentle runs but nothing silly, or nothing fast. Rest your hammy!

      Before the Worthing Half of last year, I hadn't been able to run at all following shin splints from early January but then showed up on the day and ran a good race. I reckon you should show up on sunday nice and rested, enjoy the run and getting back into the swing of things but not put too much pressure on yourself.

      Hey! I'd probably focus on rest and recovery. Perhaps 1-2 short super easy paced runs to tick over and see how the legs feel. I always try to remind myself it's difficult to make any big gains through running in the week before a race to improve how you will run on race day, but it's very easy to do some harm. Less is more. Better to feel as fresh as possible and itching to run come race morning I think.
