My first half marathon this one, looking forward to it as I only live in Altrincham so nice and convenient.

I've built up my training from doing 4 x 8mile runs per week to 3 X 8mile per week plus an additional run that has got longer each week until I ran the 13.1miles this morning and am now looking at a slight tapering down to the race.

I'm thinking about doing the Manchester Marathon next year and wondered whether I should revert back to my 4 X 8mile plan until after Christmas and New Year and start again from January to build up to April's Manc marathon or whether I should leave the longer run at a higher level to give me a better start point when (and if) I begin the marathon training

robin, I wonder what sort of time you are aiming for in the marathon. If you look at the GMM website there are various training plans. I did the one for those who just want to finish. It was 16 weeks, running 4 times a week and I think you needed to be able to run a comfortable 5-6 miles before starting it. I found the plan easy to follow. I finished in 5.17hrs and with those conditions was happy with my time good luck on 4th

That sounds ideal, I think I'd been a bit optimistic based on my 10K times but having built up to the Half Marathon (and taken Cameron and Reigel into account), I guess I'd be happy with anything under 2 hours for the half and then around 4.5 hours for the full marathon, although to be honest I'd be happy to just finish a marathon

My only worry for Tatton on the 4th is that I'm used to wearing my Ipod and I know alot of races frown upon it for obvious health and safety reasons, going to have to practice "switching off" and "zoning out" without the user of music!

I have a number for this race for anyone who needs one. You should be able to PM me via this site (though I may not pick it up before Sunday evening), or post a message here.

robin, I plan to run with my i pod and just one ear piece in, I think on the details it advises against but doesn't ban them. I obeyed the rules at Manchester and wish I had worn mine (I was driven to singing to myself along the long lonely windy stretches!) and some people were.It makes a huge difference to my running if I can have music

Hi,
Unfortunately I'm unable to race next Sunday and it would be a shame to waste the number, please message me if interested.

Really looking forward to the race this Sunday...

Just wondering if there is somewhere at HQ to safely leave a small bag before dashing down to the start line for the off?

That was actually my plan as the colder weather has meant that I've been running in my football hat and long sleeved shirt for the last week or so, so should be easy to wire up. Prefer to run in the cooler weather so as long as there's little frost or suchlike on Sunday I'll be happy. I think the forecast is for wet. Mrs RR will just be happy that I'll be abstaining from the demon drink for the first weekend in a long time prior to the race  (will make up for it on Sunday night tho')

forgot to add i will gladly cough up the reddies

Very late I know but did anyone have any luck with spare places? I will obviously pay full price and collect.

Thanks
