I lost count when I used all my fingers Ashman. I will check results for ya though, interested to know meself.
Yep, agree with Debra, start now, I started last October for Manchester. I missed a lot of February through illness so was a good idea. Winter training harder than summer too so makes sense. Get lots of 20 milers in too. More the better in my opinion. Not just 1.
Around 4500 it looks like with quite a fair few DNF too.
Cheers HeOw !! Ordered the Bible. Last time never did any 20 milers just one 16 miler thats it. Stupid mistake ! still managed to get home in 3.27 thou. Thats why i'm not messing about want to see if i can beat that time, going to get to 60 + miles a week at the peak of training (hopefully) last time it was 30 to 35 a week. 10 miles yesterday 5 today, hill reps tomorrow,up to 40 miles this week 10% increase a week hopefully injury free.
Ashman - that is awesome with that sort of training - hate to think what you will do with P&D training
Got Luton marathon on 18th Nov then a couple of weeks rest then back into training just before Christmas so when the usual 16 week training starts 1st week January I am up to speed and can do most of it at greater intensity and get more longer runs in.
Any of you guys an girls done the Village Bakery in Wrexham ? if your after a pb this is the one to do, its as flat as a pancake and a super fast course. Its on mid Feb sometime so a great warm up for Manchester !
Not done it. Living in Kent I do The Lydd 1/2 in first week in March that is pancake flat as well
No HeOw not joking one 16 miler the rest just a few 13's. Thats why i'm starting early get back in shape 25 weeks should be more than enough.
Ps checked weather given perfect running conditions
That is actually quite sickening. Sub 3 for you with proper training...

Village Bakery is great if it doesn't snow !
We have skis Dave, Cheshire High Society I am.
Andy, you are doing it cos you have a point to prove to yourself. Plus cos you love the threads!
Right; plan is sub 2:30 for me, but will be happy with a 2:31. Beggars can't be choosers when you are running into Old Trafford, I might just trip over Wayne Rooney's new hair.
