I would really like to attempt an ultra but I'm having difficulty getting chris to let me do another marathon....dont think i stand a chance with an ultra...yet! Fancy hadrian's wall so maybe if you do it next year....gives me a year to work on him!

glad to hear that your legs feel great.

Eeek not long until Sunday and I've just got one little run left. Getting excited!!!

 runs all done! I'm as ready as I'll ever be for London! An ultra was probably not the best prep, but I'll get around....just not very fast!

Stan I think we are trying to meet up at Blackheath church between 8.15 and 8.45 if you want to join us. Will be great to put some faces to names!

Good luck anyone reading who is also doing London or any other marathon this weekend!

Hi Jenf, yes I am going to try and make it along. I met you briefly in the cafe at the boot camp but sat too far back in the lecture theatre to enjoy your flapjacks!

Good luck to you on Sunday and everyone else doing London. It is going to be amazing!

I've got some of my granola bar to share at the church! !

And it was fab too! How did you get on? 3:09:45 for me. My second best time ever. Not what I wanted but it was hard work today....

Granola was yummy as ever!

Stan,   it was SO great to meet up with you and the other 2013 bootcampers pre race. Well done on your time

LMVM is definitely an experience! My race didn't go quite to plan, but I had a fab day!. We started with shady ady who was pacing 4.15 for the blue start. We were 8 miles into the race and going well... but my running buddy started struggling and feeling unwell. At mile 10 we made the decision to drop the pace and reset the goal at finishing. It became a different race then for me, I was running at a really easy pace and enjoying, but at the same time worrying about my buddy.

I learnt a lot during that race.

1.Runners are strong gutsy people.

2.Runners care about and respect each other.

3.I am really proud to be a runner

4. I think my heart actually lies in the lonely ultra miles....

WE FINISHED...and we got the same medal as MO

I have promised myself a weeks no running this week, ha ha ha ... as if that will happen!!

3 days no running... going well so far!!

I might try a swim tomorrow and maybe a light run on Friday. Am tempted to do the parkrun this weekend. Last time I did a marathon I smashed all my pb's in the following two months. Curious to see how it goes this time. Planning on doing a very flat 10K early May so I'll see what happens there.....

Glad to hear you enjoyed Sunday Jenf. It was great to meet you and once again thanks for the granola! I agree with your sentiments about runners but think you missed off number five. All runners are slightly mad! 

Let me know how you get on with the no running, Bet you're climbing the walls by Friday! Have you planned your next ultra yet?

Haha Stan... yes number 5 is definately true!!

My next target is the TR24 in July. I'm in a team, but hope to get quite a few laps in. I'm writing my training plan to try and build a bit of speed back into my legs, without losing endurance. I'm going to try training twice a day

I'm currently researching another Ultra!!!  But I am going mountain treking in Nepal for a month in November, I think that almost counts!!

5 days..... might give in tomorrow

Such a perfect running morning yesterday. Clear blue sky and no wind...just asking for an easy 4 miles! 

Feeling good!!
