Sub 3:30 Anyone
Don't remind me I'm starving! Sitting here at my desk - no pack lunch and forgot my purse so cant go out and buy a sandwich. Had a banana 10 mins ago ... and actually - I've got some porridge down in the kitchen, so if I can't find anything else to raid that will do for my lunch today.
Weather looks like its perking up - hopefully it'll be milder than last year.
I'm on the local radio on Friday morning - if any of you get radio Oxford, listen out between 6.30 and 7am, it'll probably be dire. But I'm going to ask for Billy Ocean 'when the going gets tough, the tough get going' for all us marathoners out there!
I'll put a fiver in as well?
This morining, 4.01m @ 8:46 pace, it feels very strange running now.
Rowan - Off such broken training 3:45 was a really good time & controlled pacing to boot - Not the PB you were originally aiming for but for the training you did get done it was a great achievement. Hope you are celebrating.
I'm starving - with cutting down the mileage so much I daren't eat the mountains of food I usually tuck away!
Did my last speed session of this campaign - 8 x 400 metres with 2 min recovery. Felt absolutely great. Really enjoyed. Well say 'really' now that I am sat at my desk after piggin out on lunch - oops sorry albee. the last rep I did at 6:30 pace and was telling mysefl, that's it now until London!
thanks for the weather forecast - looking good. Think it may be vest and no t shirt under vest if it is 15C.
HAs everyone remembered that you need a photo id when registering?
Forecast is getting better (?) for Sunday - looks as though it'll be warmish and sunny... Am a bit worried about the vest my charity has given me, which is a bit tight over the man boobs and made my nipples bleed after 13 miles on Saturday (more info than you wanted, perhaps). I hope plasters will do the trick.
My target for Sunday is 3:40, from red start, and it's my first marathon, so whatever I manage will be my personal best! Not sure what my number is - it's at home.
Am feeling very nervous.
It's good to feel nervous, take care of the nips and you'll be fine.
Hope there's not too much sun on Sunday, a day like today would be great.
I prefer bodyglide to vasaline....!
Bread, bread and more bread for me! If I don't ,manage to run round, least I'll be able to roll round on Sunday!!
albee, Radio Berkshire wanted me on on Thursday, b ut I had to be about 20 miles away in Maidenhead at 7am! As a Sports Massage Therapist I'm chocka on Thursday - said I'll be available by phone!! I'll try and clock in on Friday. Good luck!!
Good Luck Sunday to you all
Will bewatching avidly (apart from at 12 when I will be in front of the computer) whose up for another thread for 2009 then ?
Photo ID, I'd missed that, thanks for heads up.....
Phew AA sounds like you'll be with us
RFJ good luck on Sunday. Go get that sub 3:30 you deserve..... and good luck to all you others on this forum, hope you all get what you're aiming for and enjoy the day, especially if its your 1st FLM.
Beattie - Try Surgical Tape. It stays on even if you sweat bucketloads like me.
3:30, has to be done
Bodyglide is good, but dont like to use it round the shorts...!
