The Taper With Marius Bakken
The beer has stopped flowing and the dancing girls have gone home. So I suppose it's time to stop celebrating my 'Victory' at the Liverpool Half Marathon!
Marius sent me a email;
Absolutely fantastic! It shows once again how committed you are. Be smart now for the last weeks leading up to London. It is all a matter of sticking to the plan when things are going as well as now and not "over-run" anything. I wish you the best of luck, I'll be checking in on your blog in these last weeks,
kind regards, Marius
Oops; with Marius keeping an eye on me I better get back on the road again, I plunged my face into a cold bucket of water to sober up,then put on the running kit, which had been collecting dust in the corner, yeah baby lets get this party started, I mean Run!
Wed Location; Kings Garden's One K loop
4 x 12 mins [ 4 mins marathon pace- 4 mins just below MP - 4mins 1/2MP]
45 sec Rec after each 12 mins
Going by the Garmin map it looks like I've been running on water!
Maybe Ewen is right after all:]
Things went pretty well, tough session all the same!
Finished with 6 x smart strides.
The strides always seem to bring my legs back to life after a tough session!
Total time 1 hour 19 mins
Tue Easy run with Tess, sandhill 6 = 1 hour 11 mins
Mon easy run with Tess, Hillside loop = 32 mins
