I ran 4.5 miles yesterday lunchtime at around 8:30/9 min/miles. The 3 guys I was with run half-marathons at 7:30's, so they kept running on and then doubling back to collect me. When they were running beside me it was like they weren't even trying. Gits.

I am going swimming today, give my legs a break.

Yeah think I will swim tonight, leave my ankle another day!

Oh - gotcha!

Beacause I am running my first marathon I think I should invest in some high mileage trainers, anyone know of any good running shops in the Aldershot/ Guildford area where i can get some advice (and hopefully save some pennies!)

um, idealistically you should change your trainers every 800k. this saved on dammage because the shoes lose their shape and support giving way to oportunities where damage can occour.

Hey all, can i join in....also doing my first Marathon and my first race ever! i'm really slo and longest run is 11 miles so far. am really scared about the day. any of you running for the stroke association?
16/01/2006 at 09:35
sure thins sara, you can join. Im running for SHELTER and really scared too. they still havent sent through my fundraising pack so i havent even really been able to begin fundraising yet and i need £1500. lol. so how is your training going? how you coping?
16/01/2006 at 09:45
training going ok...i think...but i'm confused about which training plan to follow. Stroke association sending weekly e mails but its a lot of time even for the beginners (all done on time rather than mileage). i need something simple to follow and ideally 4 days per week - any suggestions? did 7m slow yesterday but am v tired all the time! wot are you following and what kindof time are you aiming for?
16/01/2006 at 10:41
sara...am following hal higdons plan (www.halhigdon.com) ... seems straight forward enough. give me a shout if you need me to email it to you
16/01/2006 at 11:39
Chris, just had a look and that is SO much more straightforward...thanks! are you doing Novice or intermediate? think i may have his book, hve you read it? do you think it is still possible to do under 5 hrs on the novice plan? maybe i should just worry about finishing!!
16/01/2006 at 11:42
lol, im just worring about finishing. !! lol. im going to have to have a look at this training plan now...
16/01/2006 at 11:54
well if there's a few of us following it at least we can compare notes/encourage each other! i need all the help i can get especially as i'm running on my own - anyone else the same? do you know yet where you are starting from or running numba? i'm 50890 (at the back i reckon and that's where i'll be at the finish!lol!!)and going from the startin Greenwich park.
16/01/2006 at 11:59
dont know where im starting from, how do you know??? my runners number is 45793 and immon my own too. i been and bought an MP3 player thought that might keep me going a bit. have Gloria estifan keep me company, LOL.
16/01/2006 at 12:07
found on internet somewhere...if you are between 33251 and 59000 then its the red start in greenwich park - nearest stations Greenwich (DLR) or maze hill i think. then they put you in 'pens' (nice!) according to your estimated time for the race...what did you put? i LOVE gloria estifan!:-) how much running r you doing at the mo?
16/01/2006 at 12:10
i put 4:30 lolal though im following a SUB 3 hour training plan. lol. in training every day and currently the furthest i have run is 11 miles. lol. Im also doing a bit of witght training as im like a stick lol.
16/01/2006 at 12:20
my max run is 11 miles too and i put 4:30 although i think 5-5:30 more realistic! i'm really slow - the 11 miler took me 2hrs 2mins. wish i was a stick and i can't understand why i haven't lost any weight! my excuse is being 41 and having 3 kids!lol how much do you run each day?
16/01/2006 at 12:36
aiming on getting round at the moment.
