Now its confirmed im in the London Marathon 2013 Im looking at hotels. I'm oop north in Yorkshire. Would you go down Friday or Saturday? Just thinking if I go down Saturday might risk being tired etc or dehydration etc from the travel. For all you who have to stay over in London what day do you go down?
I went down in 2011 on the Friday and all was fine, April 2012 I went down on the Saturday and ended up peeing blood by mile 16 and it all fell apart, needing toilet every 5 minutes etc and just wondered if the travel on the Saturday played a part in all this.
i'm planning to go on the Friday, but its my first time and I don't want to add pressure to the Saturday of travelling, and either carrying my bags to the expo or detouring to the hotel en route to the expo etc..
If I was you, and had your past experience, I wouldn't want to travel on the Saturday just in case the same thing happened again!
Train, its a 2 hour journey fro Leeds. Always go first class as i book in advance so dirt cheap.
