  1. Dude, this was like every run for me in July and August this year. Finally decided to cut down the fibre intake the night before runs and things have been better. That said, I have taken Immodium for races and it has mostly worked with no side-effects (that I could discern). Downside is that I don't #### for two days after, but worth it to get through a race without having to go. Since I usually run first thing in the morning I usually need to go 2-3 times a week during my runs. During my typical 6 miler I am always within 1 mile of a bathroom the entire run. I haven't had the issue on race day as I usually getup hours before the race to get the system started, but I'd be afraid to take Imodium.
  2. Right now it is a one week taper, but I am willing to increase that if I feel like I need it. The half is the priority over the marathon.
  3. They’re actually different workouts as I am following the half marathon plan and @SteelCurtainis following the marathon. My target pace is half marathon pace -10 seconds and his is marathon pace -10. This workout went okay, and I am improving but I am going to have to revise my goal time, 1:21 isn’t happening this training cycle. I’m now hoping that I’ll be able to PR, sub 1:23:23. This training plan is tough for me, I have a difficult time running at tempo or half marathon pace in comparison to VO2 max workouts. Tomorrow’s 7 miles at HMP will be a challenge. I have run more miles than ever at half marathon pace or faster this cycle and I’m hoping it will pay off. Good luck with your 3x2 workout.
  4. Congrats again, this wasn't your fastest marathon but an argument can be made this was you best executed marathon in regards to pacing.
  5. @Juxtatarotcongrats on another sub 3.
  6. Through 30k 2:06:59 still holding on to the 2:58:38.
  7. 20:38 for @Juxtatarot at the 5k, a bit quick 6:38 pace.
  8. Let’s say he is in 3:35 shape (very low probability) He runs the first half in 3:45 pace (1:52:30) and the 2nd half to his true ability 1:47:30- 1 minute because he ran the 1st half so conservative. He finishes 3:39:00 we cost him 4 minutes but I am sure he would have a blast the 2nd half of the race. He is in 3:40 shape He runs the first half in 3:45 pace (1:52:30) and the 2nd half to his true ability 1:50- 30 secs because he ran the 1st half conservative. He finishes 3:42:00 we cost him 2 minutes but I am sure he would have a blast the 2nd half of the race. He is in 3:45 shape He runs the first half in 3:45 pace (1:52:30) and the 2nd half the same and finishes in 3:45. He is in 3:50 shape He runs the first half in 3:45 pace (1:52:30) and the 2nd half in 2:05 for a 3:57:30. Marathons are hard.
  9. I am not certain of this at all, 1 or 2 miles of this isn't a big deal but 13 miles would be.
  10. Honestly you’re in a dangerous situation, a good amount of talent, a good performance in a half, and light mileage. Based on your half the McMillan Calculator spits out 3:27:56, but you have no chance of running that. My recommendation would be to run the first half of the race at 3:45 pace, if you feel good slowly pick up the pace in the 2nd half of the race.
  11. This is a really good thing, get out and do a race and see how much you have improved.
  12. The 6 at MP compares favorably to your 6 prior to your PR race so perhaps you are peaking at the right time. I wouldn't worry about your VO2 max #, you're a McMillan endurance monster anyway. I hope you're not in too much pain during the race, marathon's are tough enough healthy.
  13. @Juxtatarot what is the plan for Sunday? The temperature looks good but it could be windy.
  14. Yeah this is what works for me, that and a pace band lets me know what truth is.
