Yeh Loula you are right,thats the latest I can do it in. I did 16.5 in 3h 19 so I may be able to do 20 in 3.50 as I was going very slow. I know I will be a tad speedier on the day.I just didnt want to risk an injury.

I've just what could be a really fab idea, or a rubbish one - franny could text me things for us "hoping to get round in the time allowed group" to talk about. A bit like "just a minute", they need to be interesting and random. Lou, rocker and the really quick ones will be fine as someone in that group always has plenty to talk about

by eck - you can't be spending your time looking at your phone! At mile 20 they don't want to see you reading texts! Could be funny though

ecky - I am fine. glad I am not trying to get round a marathon in 5 hours though - I know I can't go that quickly. Maybe next year though

I echo Franny's  word's 100%.

by eck...DO we always talk about that much whilst running? i think if im speeding up then i wont have enough puff

Plus also we won't need to worry too much about running for the next week, unless you're one of the ultra nutters. Running a marathon seems to mean your family and friends are a bit more supportive than just doing a long training run.

went to spinning and my calf started feeling odd when we were doing a sprint. SO didn't go fast after that, don't want to have any injuries. Might get the foam roller out later. Not swimming tonight - going to take it easy, have an early night and get up and run again tomorrow

03/10/2012 at 19:15
Tapering? Wassat???
03/10/2012 at 19:19
We now have a roller, but my hands do some pretty good work on knotted muscles.

I'll send you my legs by eck!

03/10/2012 at 20:14

by'eck .. if you use it on top of a hill ... Can we call you a high-roller?  I've always wanted to tell people I had one for a friend.

03/10/2012 at 20:30

whats a high roller??

03/10/2012 at 20:33

It's a term that was originally associated with a gambler who made a LOT of money rolling the dice in Las Vegas; but it has come to mean anyone who is filthy rich, full-stop.

03/10/2012 at 20:34

03/10/2012 at 20:36
