10 MARATHONS IN 10 DAYS! click here
Steve Edwards crossed the finish line first, in a time of 3:27. As such Steve smashed the world record for the fastest time to complete 10 consecutive marathons. His average marathon time over the 10 days was 3:32.05. That’s a tremendous time for just one marathon. For 10 in a row it’s phenomenal, and Steve has rightly secured his place in the World Record Books.
ROB THE TASK MASTER
Rob set a gruesome half marathon training session, am not sure if Rob is trying to make me or break me! But we set off over the big sandhills then out onto the beach heading south. our first mile interval was with the wind,but we soon found that the soft sand made for hard work and 6.18 tells just how hard the going was.after two mins rest we headed back into the howling headwind and drifting sand! now this really was a terrible nightmare, putting in a tremendous effort, yet running in slow motion! I felt like stopping after 200m but thought better of it,I ran on Robs shoulder before putting the boot in over the last few yards, the garmin showed 7.02, this must be what running THE SAHARA DESERT MARATHON is like, 2 more mins rest and we set off again, this time i felt better and slowly pulled away from Rob reaching the mile in 6.02. we then ran the final two miles through the pinewoods , 6.11 and 6.07 before heading home over the sandhills, that was one tough workout,glad its over, should make racing seem easy!
5 x1 mile = 2.12.35
Steady run = 24 mins
