I think this thread is poorly and maybe we should do the only decent thing. I think we're all friends on FB anyway aren't we?
Day 25 and 10 miles out on the moors in very muddy conditions. Running App went a bit mental and said 35 miles in 1hr 5 mins - I'm happy with that.
Halfway there folks
It's still 20 weeks until the race. People will start posting when they get properly into their training.
Hmmmm, may have been 2010 then - I think it was 2010 as 2009 Edinburgh was my second ever marathon and not when I met the gang.
Still here then guys?? Week 9 of my training larkey with race day being March 9th looming large. Need to get some more long runs in......doing over 30 every week but the long run is proving difficult to fit in. Are you all doing Edinburgh again this year?
I am - but only racing if London goes badly. If me n Tanner smash london then we might have a 26 mile tempo run along the river in Edinburgh
I cannot belive my sodding luck, I had a heavy cold which put me out of action for nearly 2 weeks last month, now i have a chest infection courtesy of she who must be obeyed, at this rate I will be lucky to complete the Goofy challenge walking
Anyway, think positively and all that, stiff upper lip bla bla bla
Hi MCS, sorry mate but the WORLDS GREATEST BAND - RUSH are playing at the NEC and O2 and the probability unfortunately is that it could be the last chance I get to see them play live so sadly i will have to give it a miss for 2013 You sound on brilliant form, wish I had your mojo atm, I feel flipping drained.
Dave, how did you get another London entry? I tried 2 yrs running and not a sniff, does it count how fast you are ?
The clue to the year's at the top of the page.... .
That was the year I didn't run but came up on the Saturday anyway. Can still remember the red hot weather the day before the race with everyone in the White Hart drinking soft drinks and WR drinking Guinness.
Think there's still a bit of life left in the old thread but all things will come to an end.
Hope you can shift the chest infection Phil. Just make sure you're over it before you get back out there. Don't want any relapses.
Sorry guys but having done the Edi Mara the last 2 years, I'm also going missing for 2013. A friend of mine's running her first 10k in London on 27 May and I've said I'll run it with her. Getting from Edi to London overnight isn't going to work I'm afraid.
Well done, mcs. Keep it going. March will be here before we know it.
First 'real' long run of the Paris training, 16 miles, out of the way. Now it feels like I'm marathon training again.
Good man GE and thanks for the pointer on the year. I remember it well!
I get an entry for London on the times Philby. I qualified for a championship entry with a sub 2:40 and before that I always got a good for age entry. I really enjoy London but going to give it a miss next year after doing 4 in a row. May do Paris instead for a change of scene.
Day 27 and 5 miles already done - gym session at lunch and maybe 14 miles tomorrow. God I hate streaking!
Phil, hadn't realised it was so close. Take it easy and enjoy the sights. Hope you and Jill have a great trip.
Get well soon Phil
Of course - get well soon Philby!
On that note I have just developed a tickly cough and a wheezy chest in the last hour and suspect my avoidance of the lurgy may be at an end That should make the streak a little intersting
Day 29 I think and illness takes hold. Struggling to breathe and very achy. Can I drag 5 miles out of the old body?
Probably best to rest the young body up Dave!! GET WELL SOON to all.
I think I posted on this last year, and the year before and the year before??
Can I join in again? Glutton for punishment.
I had New Year with the inlaws in Edinburgh and got some good long (and muddy) runs in.
Got a Marathon early in April (not VLM) then Edinburgh in May should work out good I hope?
Hope everyone's training going well?
