Yep that would be about right if the LM was 13 weeks yesterday!!!

Just think about that folks in another 13 weeks you will be wearing your medal forever and resting your very tired legs with pride!!

I am dreaming of that moment!!! but can do without the pain!!

i've never found anything quite so scarry and exciting at the same time!!! mmm...actually giving birth comes pretty close but doesn't take quite so long!!!

rio is the medal really nice? i'm getting goosebumps!! anyone else take cold/ice baths post LSR? are you meant to do it straight away and then have a warm shower or what?

My other half has done the last 2 marathons and the medals are pretty cool (heavy!!) - so my Hydro Womens Challenge medal hangs proudly with his - although I can't wait to have LFM 2006 one hanging up too! know what you mean re mis of excitement and fear!!

the medal is lovely and very heavy (at least it is by the time you get it put round your neck!

I always take a cold bath after LSR and any session that has been quite hard. Dont do the ice cold water is cold enough for me. And yes you need to do it as soon as you can after finishing. So home, run the bath while doing some stretches, and in you get! I usually sit in it (still wearing my top clothes) with a hot drink and stay there til I have finished it. Then follow up with either a warm shower or bath!

You have to live with your name Sara choose one you like!!!

I keep getting called Rio by a couple of the runners in my group!
23/01/2006 at 12:43

Long Slow Run Jemma and its ok to ask whatever questions you want
23/01/2006 at 12:45
Appreciate it - thanks!

Does anyone know of any other 1/2 marathons (other than Brighton which sadly I can't do) that would be suitable for a beginner like me (I live in Surrey - so not MILES away!!)
23/01/2006 at 12:49
Jems - LSR is long slow run ( i think the emphasis being on slow!) think i am going to go for Pinkerbelle and then you can call me Pinks for short...
23/01/2006 at 12:52
Thanks Pinks! - mine is a bit official as JEMMA PHILLIPS when known by everyone as Jems!!

Jemma go to the grey events tab at the top of the page and then you can search for local events. There is one on 19th Feb (I think) in Wokingham
