Loving the Imogen Stubbs and Gina Bellman references! Thanks for posting the Dean Godwyn article Screamy, I'm sorry but I find that sort of thing inspiring. I can see DF3 rolling his eyes at this. DF3 when is your first marathon btw?

Ha ha, don't be sorry Zaftig

Oh and - Jason Isaacs, delish, in fact he gets better with age

DF3, I think we are all on about Silver Foxes.

How's the knee?

I like 'em young, not a silver fox fan alas. Jason Isaacs isn't bad though.

Good luck DF3, looking forward to the marathon post mortem.

(Disclaimer: By post mortem I mean general idle discussion not the real thing of course)

Ran for over an hour on Friday and about to give it an hour and a half twirl today. If it holds up, I should be fine to take it for a spin for over 3 times longer in a weeks time.

So its getting better ...... and no physio or sports massage. Its called using your noggin and adapting the training to suit, rather than need to be told by some physio about what to do because he has a piece of paper and you don't.

Whats the worse that can happen  next week anyway running a marathon with a knee thats barely healed? (besides causing a chronic knee injury that will last for the rest of my life ........ - yeah right)

Well, I still think paying a sports masseur 40 quid to fix me so I can run a few days later is preferable to waiting several weeks for it to get better and not being able to train...

But then again, I'm the sort of lightweight who would pull out of the marathon altogether if I hadn't trained, and you wouldn't be the DF3 we know and, er... well, know if you did that. So good luck to you.

How did you do DF3? Did you walk?

05/05/2013 at 21:30

I ran the first 10 miles and then walked the rest (actually Im not joking!)

which was easier though? 

05/05/2013 at 21:42

actually hands down the running. Simply because the 17 miles wasnt just walking, it was walking with pain.

If I had set off from the start, just walking and never had an injury, easily walking would be the best for 'completing' a marathon.

you can''t say that as you have never walked a marathon david..don't undersetimate what you have never done...............I think you have been guilty of that in the past

Well done df3 you part of the marathon family.

DF3 by now the next day you'll be in pain I think you were when I passed you at around 14 mile, by thursday unless you do a short recovery run it will be agony, but you're a finisher and by next week you'll have a Marathon PB that will be relatively easy to beat sat in front of you, my guess is another Marathon in the autumn with more training will be on the cards by next Sunday, it's addicitve
