Right, I did have my name down with the VLM people to help out with the 'official' volunteers, but as they don't seem all that interested in my services, stuff 'em, I'll join the fun lot instead. Assuming my legs don't fall off in Paris the week before, can someone add me to the supporters list?

Hi All

Sorry to hear your news Becks. Hope you recover soon. Mind you im sure supporting will be lots of fun! Im looking forward to joing you all hopefully next year, as a good friend of mine has also had to withdraw from this years marathon and is running it next year.

So so looking foward to this now and meeting you all!! you will probably have to give me a boot up the backside to get me going again  

Kate I hope you do have a lovely sun spot at mile 17.

As this is first marathon - I have been following a Hal Higdon plan I have two long runs left a 19miler this weekend and a 20miler on 31st March. Is it worth doing a little more or should I just stick to the distance?

Claire, there is no need to do any more than 20 miles in training.  I've done 5 marathons now and never done a training run longer than 20 miles, and often I don't get above 16 miles.

Looking forward to meeting all the new faces that have signed up.

15/03/2012 at 10:49
Thanks SuperCaz I will stick to the distances on the plan.

Hey not long to go!! Sorry I've not been around much but will start logging in more once the group threads are up

Claire

First marathon - or first London?

if its ure first marathon full stop

u need to consider not burning out and taper

arriving fresh - that does not mean no running at all, it simply means ease of the distance

u dont want any injuries - and u dont want to be tired, heavy legged, or exhausted -

now, people, you can trust me on this or not,

20 miles in training still eaves 6 miles unknown territory, and its all on the day

i speak as an " Old Hand "

Was that a nag at me madam?! Lol - I'm not hopeful of getting the lists done befor the weekend now so will take the laptop home from work and hopefully do them on Sunday (whilst recovering from the rugby all day on Saturday - I am unable to watch it without feeling the need to raise a glass - or ten!!!)

 So - any more for any more, keep 'em coming!

Hello, I'm a bit late arriving but please can I be added to the runner's list it was great last year and gave me something to look forward to when I found things tough at 15 miles or so

I can't copy the list on my phone.

Mudchute is a station on the Docklands Light Railway.  The support station is, more or less, on the opposite side of the road from the station entrance
16/03/2012 at 13:59
I'll be supporting too (but can't work it how to copy on this new toy).
