Pace yourself and you can do it. that feeling youll get when you finish will overcome any negative thoughts you had before hand.

 

Just think of this even if you did come last which you wont you will still be ahead of all those hundreds of thousands of people in that area who havnt even tried.

Good Luck!!!

Mr A Nonymous wrote (see)

Scott - you feeling alright? That was like a positive post there ........ take note Samir!

 

Wouldn't it be funny if the OP has been economical with the truth about her training and then runs a storming time! Lets see how positive Scott would be then....

Do it Cheryl. Do a run walk strategy. You won't be last, and you won't be 4 stone overweight by the finish !

I did it two or three years ago.  Lots of people walked, lots finished significantly slower than your estimated time.  You won't be last.

I blinking well did it!!!!!! Whoop whoop 2hrs 21.53  slower than I'd hoped for but I totally loved the whole experience from start like to.finish.I struggled mile 7 and the last 2 along the seafront into the head wind were brutal but I made it to mile 7 before needing to walk and ran far far more of the race than I thought I would so am.feeling pretty chuffed. Now I am.home had a bath and delicious.dinner my legs are feeling a bit broken!!!! Lol. Bring on the spring and more events to enter.my name is.Cheryl and I am a runner.))))

well done, and a brilliant time for your first race. Give your legs a couple of days off to recover, or just do a few walks if you want to get out and exercise

Morning everyone,I.am once again calling on your massive pot of.experience.firstly,my.muscles.feel surprisingly ok but my knees are total agony I can barely walk.is this normal? And secondly,where do I go from here ( after a couple days of rest) do I take a start from scratch and build my base running fitness maybe do c25k? Or do i just carry on as I am? Just going out and seeing how far I can go and let my speed and fitness improve naturally? And hopefully make a.dent in the 4 stone I trying to loose? Advice please lovely people xx

Congrats!!!! give your knees a little ice and warm alternations and the ache should ease - it helped me during my mara recovery
