Hi, im also signed up for it. This will be my 2nd marathon. You?
Had a long weekend in prague during the summer so thought I would go back and run Down side I'm told is the cobbles
But looking forward to it plus it was easier to get in than London
Wow 21 marathons under your belt.......
Ive just booked flights and hotel staying friday until monday. Prague looks amazing im really looking forward to it.....got my number too couple of days ago so its all becoming a reality....just need to get the training in.
Hows your training going Slowfoot?
Not really started yet ! Will start in a couple of weeks (hopefully)
Im staying Friday till Tuesday where you flying from ? Have you set yourself a target time ?
also have my number 4284 (i think)
Welcome have you run Prague before ?
Flying from Edinburgh. What about you?
Well, my first marathon May 2011 (Edinburgh) was 4.09. I am hoping to improve on that and get under 4 hours ...something like 3.45 would be fantastic but I will have to see how the training goes first to see what i am capable of.
What about your target time?? Are you following any particular training programme and do you have any good tips for a newbie??
Aiming for 4.30 but it will depend on the cobbles Haven't got a particular plan will just get out and run and same as yourself see how i feel.
Flying from Manchester on the Friday and staying at the Hilton on the waterfront which is about a 10/15 min walk from the start/finish. Not sure how far it is from the expo but
I ran in Stockholm, Belfast and Casablanca (only the half) last year (Cheap flights)
I've also run in the States a few times.
I'm told there is about a mile worth of cobbles split throughout the course and that it can be a bit warm but a really friendly event
Im staying at Hotel Salvator i think its close to the Town Square. Has plenty of good reviews and was a good price!!!
Never been to Prague but always fancied it for a break. I hear the beer is good but that will have to wait til the Sunday night!!
The beer is not only very good but its actually cheaper than bottled water & soft drinks !!!
I think we can manage one beer on Friday night but after the run I'll buy the first round.
Suffering with plantar facitis at the moment so having a couple of weeks off from running.whilst it eases.
Making sure I do some cross training in the gym managing about 45 minutes a day at the mo. Want to make sure I'm back up and running by early March at the latest and will then have to a crash 8 week training course.
the beer will help numb the pain afterwards
Thanks I'm going stir crazy not running but at least I'm doing something lots of cross training and strecthing.
Do you have any races planned pre Prague ?
I've entered the Coniston 14 end of March but will depend on the injury
Thinking of booking a sports massage with the physio next week but i think I need to rest up before he pods and pokes so will stick with 45 minute cardio sessions
