SORRY WP- never meant to cause any offence (just crazily thought that's what you meant by 'maybe' and was meant to be a joke!) Just my brain doing silly things after working on this most tedious thing all day!

CS - I would say last long run should be same no of miles as days until marathon, e.g. 21 miles 3 weeks beforehand. That said I normally do around 17 2 weeks before and 13 8 days before (but not this time!)

I guess we both got the wrong end of the stick.You really cant tell on a forum.
I was saying maybe as I have food allergies and have to be careful what I eat.
lets just put it down to Friday afternoon in work!!

Sounds interesting!?! It is Amsterdam after all!

Wonder how romantic you can be after running a marathon where I generally find you can hardly walk never mind thinking of things more energetic:))) I am joking.

DG

How is the running going? you must be full of confidence:-)


Slow Coach Bill all done

01/10/2005 at 13:23
I was only trying to put my shoes on! No swinging from chandeliers or anything. Just a perfectly ordinary type of thing to do when you're taking the dog out. And WHAM. Breathtaking pain. The back went. The end of useful activity today! How will I cope at the hairdressers? Those nasty chairs for the washing are a trial on a good day!

But not to worry - I shall carry on regardless. Breathe. Relax. Breathe. It'll be fine. 17 miles tomorrow will be a breeze. Breathe - relax - breathe - 17 miles will be a doddle [this is my mantra for the day].
01/10/2005 at 15:05
Oh no Muddie!! What have you done? Not 2 weeks before the big day for goodness sake!! Does it feel like a short-lived sort of back pain?

We could move up from Rokin to the Warmoestraat in the Red Light District possibly. They used to have 2 for 1s on drinks in happy hour. Each bar had a different hour, and I think we knew one for each hour from about 5pm til 2am !!!!

Mind you, I was 14?? years younger then, and didn't run marathons........... how on earth we'll have the energy for pub crawling.........

s'pose it literally will be crawling :-)
01/10/2005 at 17:57
14 years younger? But surely you're no more than 29 now so you would still have been at school then? (flattery always works;-) )

I see the ninesome has turned into a fourteensome - should be an interesting evening :-)
