By 'eck sounds like you are a boy scout, "be prepared", at least planning is helpful.

(()) to those that want and go away to the germs.

I am trying to stop the planning from becoming an obsession. We have a speech and language therapy appt before then. I have been bulk cooking food for the freezer ready for the kitchen coming out, and also in case we need to take food into hospital for moo. If you think I am becoming obsessed or it is unhealthy, please say.

By'eck you sound organised. It doesn't sound obsessed right now, just organised. But keep posting on here . The fact you are worried it might become obsessive is probably a good thing, as being aware of it is good. (I don't have many adjecttives today it seems...).

18 miles done and it felt lovely. Had some post run happiness, but sadly feeling quite blue now for no reason. Guess its just a down from feeling good before.

Rwtw, I understand the post run blues. Have you refuelled properly? What event are you training for?
17/02/2013 at 16:08

Training for the milton keynes marathon. Yeah, thought I had but might be that. But then it's tricky as i'm feeling the increased training is making me think 'oh i can eat that, i deserve it'...and i'm saying that far too much these days...

I have some of those ryvita seed and fruit biscuits. Not very many calories (55) but good for refuelling and tasty. I did mk last year as my first marathon. It was horrendous weather wise but a good course
17/02/2013 at 16:22

oooo good idea. I got myself a scone. Not exactly healthy but tasty none the less! And ahh that's good! I've heard the weather was awful, but the course does look good

Not what you expected from roundabout city. Some really lovely pointsq
17/02/2013 at 16:32

Ah good. Yeah...i was a little concerned it would be 26 miles of roundabouts but luckily not! Choose it as it's close enough to London so I don't have to stay anywhere . Pretty excited!

I'm not averse to running thru puddles but when they are passed ankle deep and 100m long it takes its toll on your feet.

By'eck...I struggle to run through small puddles!! Also, silly question really but I also like to did you get to the stadium? I'm going to get the train there - do they put on shuttle buses? (Tried to look on the website, bit unsure)

I went to spectate at the MK Marathon last year as a mate in the office was doing it. The weather was just the worst, I got soaked to the bone and didn't see my colleague either! It looked like a great event though, big enough to feel like a real event but not so big that it's overwhelming. I'd like to do it myself one day.

Nice run this morning, beautiful weather and it really straightened my head out.

17/02/2013 at 18:22

yay for a nice run...and yeah, it sounds like a good first marathon! Just hoping the weather is better!

Stayed overnight near Northampton and then we drove in. Put out a call on the MK thread and someone might taxi share
17/02/2013 at 18:32

Good idea, thank you

My chest hurts

RWTW. There are loads of bus stops outside the main MK train station and I'd guess some go to the stadium as there are also a lot of big shops on the same site.

Our club qualified for the national team orienteering final today.  This means a trip to the Forest of Dean in October.  Can't say I contributed to the score myself but it's good to be a part of it.
