Sorry for the late reply had a bit of a holiday.
Foot still isn't great haven't managed more than a few hundred yards running and will need to get back in the gym this week to shed the holiday pounds
Physio releived the pain for a while but its still there and mornings its at its worse
Still planning on running but any time aspirations are well and truly out the window
Still restricted to gym I'm afraid haven't managed a run since Jan I have a doctors appointment this week to see if i can get some intensive physio sessions.
I'm running prague with a mate from work so have promised him i will start and finish just haven't said how long it will take me !
Thanks for the positive response! Im really looking forward to seeing Prague as well as the actual marathon itself.
Vienna that sounds good. When is it? Are you making a holiday of it and hows your training going??
Fast and flat also a relief as most of just about all of my training is done on the flat.
Are you any further forward?????
Hoping (fingers crossed) to get out running this weekend but I'm giving serious consideration to missing the run and just enjoying Prague
Hi, I'm running this one and it'll be my first marathon. I have run a couple of halfs before with Bath the most recent (2:09:52). I was targeting 4:30 until last weekend, but I struggled with the 20th mile of my 20-miler and am now thinking I'll be happy with anything under 5.
Good luck to the rest of you as well!
I will be there or there abouts still have a problem with my foot but planning on run/walk approach Its a long way to go and DNS
I'm only a very occasional poster so Slowfoot please forgive very late response. Haven't done Prague before and don't know too much about it except what I can glean from course map. Looks like a very flat course as it follows the river. I'm hoping the lovely setting is a distraction from the hard slog of doing 26 miles. At least with a metric course the K markers come along sooner and you feel you are getting somewhere.
I have been trying to stick to a 3'30 training schedule with limited success. The plan says do several 20 milers but I have so far only managed one 18 and one 20. In a panic have entered the South Cheshire 20 this Sun to squeeze in another long one with a fortnight to go. That will have to be it. Mind you I also did Offa's Orror nr Chepstow last Sun and although billed as less than 13M it was a killer!
Good to hear that Slowfoot! Good luck with that!
Also, does anyone know what the "refreshments" will be provided? It says at stations at 5K intervals, I think, but doesn't specify what exactly.
Hi there! Feel free to check out the course map and elevation data of Prague Marathon 2012 that I've created. Under the "Strategy" tab you can setup detailed race strategy and "simulate" the race: http://yourace.info/en/event/17
