Sparkly bridget v Len2
"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*

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'.
