Two stroke....as Private Jones says "Dont Panic " Dont Panic"..plenty of time left and you will lose only a tiny fraction of performance potential by taking a week or so off...

Good week-end for me, new Half PB ( albeit a 2 second PB ..

Just 4 weeks to the safe haven that is "taper time"....

Two Stroke, I wouldn't worry as you will still be faster than me even if you are a bit broken. I reckon you will all be in the pub by the time I finish .

I'll be walking it Eckytump so I doubt I'll be slower than you!  It's going to be a slow journey and there is a chance I won't make the cut off.  Meantime the swelling and pain have reduced quite a lot and the bruising appears to be calming down a little.  No swimming this week as it's too early still, but have some more exercises to do.  Went to see my sports massage lady on Monday and she did a manual lmphyatic drainage massage which really helped

Hi all

TST glad to see the swelling and pain is going. You will get round I know it

Hope everyone's training is going well! Looking forward to meeting you all!!

Hey guys, hope training is going well!

My name seems to have crept back on to the Supporters List in the last edit, but I can't make it to VLM this year because I'm doing a different race that day. Sorry to keep harping on about it but I don't want to disappoint anyone that was depending on me for jelly babies or lager

Hows everyones training going? Hope no one is panicking too much :S

Is anyone here form the Essex area? I fear im gonna end up standing around on my own nervous as hell waiting for the race to start

07/03/2013 at 09:24

Tortoise, vlm is one place you won't be on your own. Unless sub 2.45 there's always someone at every pace to chat too! Panic not

Well my training going just about to plan have done a 18 miler last week
Just got some new trainers and breaking them in for when I go for my 20/22 miler in 3 weeks time .
If that goes ok i will be well happy I am looking forward to race day but nerves starting to kick in a bit :0)

Tortoise Re:" I fear im gonna end up standing around on my own nervous as hell waiting for the race to start"......you can dsafely assume that everyone else is feeling exactly the same....if you say hello to whoever is standing beside you as you wauit and the start and say hello you can be certain they will be delighted to chat and be distracted from their own nerves and naked fear ...

Woo hoo!  Seen the physio and so long as I do as I'm told and build slowly I am good to go!  Yes it will be slow and yes it will probably hurt (my legs generally as opposed to the ankle) but at least I can do it! 

 

08/03/2013 at 12:44
Hope it all goes ok for ya 2 stoke still 6 weeks to go .
09/03/2013 at 18:59
Eek-I seem to have dropped off the runners' list... Please could someone more technically-minded assist?! Thanks!!! Where do you guys usually pitch yourselves? Longest training run tomorrow (aside from Paris mara in 7 April...). Fingers crossed for no rain!!x
09/03/2013 at 19:39

11/03/2013 at 18:57
I've dropped off the supporters' list too - can someone put me back? Ta.
11/03/2013 at 22:02

i am so nervous about this race.  I was doing well with training but got sick and ended up missing almost 4 weeks training.  I am scared i wont finish and if i do i will miss the medals (anyone know what time you need to finish by to still get a medal?) 

11/03/2013 at 22:21
How far have you got to with your training? You still have 4 weeks to get back on track.
Or if things are too bad you can always defer and give it a proper go next year.
