Preparing for a marathon from scratch, in 22 weeks.
Cool, carm, collected... Not nervous, not nervous/excited...
AAAAARGH!!!!!!! Hurry up and get here tomorrow morning!
lol Steph, you almost had me believing you then Hope you have a decent evening with plenty of carbs and a good sleep ready for tomorrow - am expecting a full review by teatime btw.
As long as I'm not still running / walking then
All best for tomorrow Steph! I think the pink hair should now be your marathon "signature".
hope you have a great big steak in the fridg for your post race feast!
Yes. But we finish 200m from a KFC and some work colleagues might be there... Might be lazy and take everyone there and get two or three buckets. then steak later or on Tuesday.
Jen: yes I agree pink hair is my marathon sig now
Night xx see you on the flip side, I'll try to post an update post mara.
Hey Steph, thought you'd have been tucked up long ago! Best of luck for tomorrow (not that you need luck) and catch you post race
Good luck - looking warm out there! Looking forward to your report - enjoy the KFC!
Can't be too long until Steph crosses the line now - hopefully the heat isn't too bad and it is going well - I've had to have a cold shower and lie down after gardening for a couple of hours it was so hot for me. I'd imagine a marathon in this heat will add a good 10%+ to the time. Just to get out and run in this unexpected heat is impressive, I'm hiding until later this evening to venture out!
Err post came up blank
HURRAH bloody hot but I did it!!!!
chip time exactly the same as my Garmin.
4 hours 56 minutes 13 seconds chip and garmin time.
clock time 5:01:15 but took 5m to get through the start line.
only caught the tail end of this thread but let me say congratulations to you Booktrunk
for all the work you have put in in order to complete the distance. I hope you are proud of yourself i bet all your family are.
Yes! Very impressive considering the temps. Congratulations
Tea for tonight.... Two sirloin steaks, chips n mushrooms
thanks Daeve. I even screwed up and took but forgot to put on Vaseline or sun tan lotion.... Bit of a failure. Legs are a bit rubbed from where I poured a couple of bottles of water over myself, and going to be lobster red tomorrow.
Garmin track of my route.
CONGRATULATIONS STEPH! and nicely under the 5 hour mark as well Enjoty the steak(s).
Wey heh Steph!! Wel done you! So happy to hear it went so well and in very warm conditions too.
hope you have enjoyed your steaks and I can ony hope I can get close to what you have achieved- big up you!!!
i'm so excited... Just cannot stop grinning.
Nice one Steph. I set foot in mcDonalds for the 1st time in years after the race. I was starving. Quite fancy a couple of sirloin steaks now.
Hiya Also-Run i also got chicken strips in KFC hehe as well as having the two steaks for tea... Decided to be very literal in my experimenting with eating to help the muscles repair.
Night xxx need to curls up and get some sleep now.
