"I've got a London marathon place . A ballot place too - been applying for the last 4 years, and this time I'm in.
I've never run further than 8 miles (some time back in March, before I twisted a knee, which is also fine now). I would absolutely love to be mentored, assisted, helped and advised, and to have someone else's voice in my head when I set out for a plod at 5.15am in the mornings

I have been building up for a few months, working back up to running for 30 mins, 4 times a week. I bought the non-runners marathon book as it seemed most sensible and approachable, and I'm following the training plan in that. It's a 16 week plan but I started at 18 weeks to give myself a 2 week breathing space for snow or injury.
 work in.
Time you would like to complete a marathon in: Oh god, I just want to finish! Same day will do!!"

Congratulations and see you in Chandos for a beer after London! *Cheers*

Well done Len2!

Congratumalations Len2 - may well join you (virtually of course) and follow you in a not too scary stalker way as I too hope to 'just finish'.
Just remember other people's 'just finish' is a PB for the likes of us.

Evening all! Sorry to be a bit late arriving but I forgot earlier on . Remembered halfway round my run and am now tapping away on the iPad because Mr USB is using the laptop to mark essays.

Well done Len2 or perhaps commiserations on getting lumbered with me.

You and he will do wonders I have no doubt

Hello Sparkly Bridget! I'm sorry in advance, you have your work cur out with me, I'm not a natural athlete....but I'm flippin keen . And yes, I'm a lady (ha ha ha...okay, female will do....), its short for Helen.

I am sure you'll be thrilled to know that I rested for most of last week, pulled my calf doing 7 miles on a trail around a reservoir! All seems fine now though, and I'm planning 3 miles tomorrow.

oooh I'm so giddy and excited!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeee!

No worries Meldy, it happens a lot! I answer to Len, Lennie, Lenster, Helen or "run, fatty, run!"
