BRIGHTON – Hastings Marathon hopeful Adrian Kimble plans to make up for four months of failed training by cramming 150 miles the night before the race, the No Quarter has learned.
“In an ideal world, I would have completed 16 weeks of gradual, slowly building training,” Kimble said. “But I haven’t – so I’m going to take the Friday off work before the race and do a thousand or so laps of the park.”
Kimble then plans to stay up late that night and sprint to London and back. “That should do it.”
Kimble noted that similar tactics had proved successful in the 2007 Brighton and Hove triathlon, when he swam to work and back for a week before the event.
