我对即将到来的爱丁堡马拉松的思考

周二Instagram上我总怪胎出来后,我感到在一个更好的地方提前周日的比赛中。我曾从谁参加了全程马拉松,多年来,他们描述是多么的爱的过程中,它是如何下坡/平,以及如何真棒人群的支持是运动员这么多的消息。

I’ve been told that the out and back course can be tough mentally, particularly when you turn around at mile 18. I’ve got music and podcasts to keep me going, and have been listening to Tina Muir’s podcast this week which has been focused on mental strength. In particular I found the episode with Justin Su’a.

No Pacers.我有一个想法,我会与3.30起搏器运行第一18/20/22英里,然后尝试起飞。但是,我发现在几个星期前,该无论是爱丁堡马拉松或半程马拉松有步行者,而该计划被废弃了。我其实从来没有坚持整场比赛的标杆(我跑第几英里的芝加哥与3.35起搏器,但没有一个伟大的日子),所以也许这是因祸得福。跟我谈过的多人谁认为运行自己的比赛,在自己的节奏的感觉运行(退潮和流动)是不是试图坚持一个节万博开户奏组好。

People encouraged me about settling int o a pace with those around me (hopefully around a 7.50 min mile)

Water every 5K.I’ve been spoiled by Marathon Majors that have water nearly every single mile. With water only every 3 miles on the course, thankfully in bottles, I’ve had a chat with Tina Muir (an elite runner) and my coach, and decided to adjust my fueling strategy. Typically I take a gel every 5 miles, however I take gels that need water, so am now going to take 3/4 of a gel every 3 miles. My pockets will be bulging with gels at the start but it’s worth it to keep my energy levels topped up.

No electrolyte drinks on the course.During the Indy Mini I drank (and enjoyed!) Gatorade on the course. Although there are four aid stations with gels on route, there isn’t any information about electrolytes being available. So I’m giving a bottle with Nuun to my friends and one to my parents to hand over if necessary.

No Tracking.这是一个游手好闲的人。但也需要压力slightly, knowing that I don’t have people worrying at home about the finish time, where I am on the course or if I’m on pace. This was I can concentrate on staying in the moment, and share my finish time (whatever that may be) when I’m ready!

Someone messaged me to say that the 10K splits were available on the website if you searched for them… fingers crossed!

The goal…the goal is obviously to run sub 3.30 and earn a BQ. That’s what I’m going to the start line going for, knowing that it’s going to be hard, that it’s going to hurt, and that it’s going to be a fight from start to finish. But I also know that a lot can happen in 26.2 miles, and I don’t want to miss sub 3.30 and think that it was a waste if I don’t get my BQ. So with that in mind, I’ve set myself 4 goals for Sunday’s race:

A->子3.30。大目标。我想这个如此糟糕。

B->子3.35。老BQ的标准,一个是我的目标,因为他们在9月改为资格赛时间之前。

C -> Sub 3.40 (and a Chicago qualifier)

D -> Sub 3.44 (a PB) At the very least I’d love to walk away with a PB and a London Good for Age time for 2020.

Thank you for all of your messages over the last few days/weeks. For once I’m not going to be filming or photographing my race at all. It’s going to be head down, game face on.

    祝你BQ目标时间,我希望的元素不会危及你的时间,我只能梦想是那么快那么会在你背后瞄准了四点一刻PB某种方式
    I have done the EMF half marathon a couple of times which has a small out and back section but this will be a real mental test for most of the race.
