Sarah Osbourne with Minni
Out tonight just 3.3 but a long road to go
3:30 or bust - wrong thread! Not that it matters. There are two RW Forum Six sub 3:30 threads and my name is attached to both! lol

"software for simulating satallite radio interference" your one clever man!! Does Mrs Malcs know you have been wearing her compression gear ???? Im thinking about York marathon already...need to knock at least 9 mins of my time....in a panic already!!!!
No, not clever at all really. Most of the fancy stuff was done by the guys with PhDs but I did manage to absorb a bit.
Mrs Malcs is still none the wiser so shh, keep the noise down!
Yes York is firmly on my radar too - funny really as my quads are still mush. But don't you have a small matter of a 24hr race and 3 mountains to climb first?!
Angela - have a great flight back!
Dotty - wow you really did start off well. I see what you mean about tailing off a bit at the end. Fantastic result still and shows that if you can sort the tail off out you'll be heading to 3:15!
Minni - I also did the carbo load that Ruth prepped for Ady and it worked wonders.
Sandstone Trail, 33 miles, quite a climb too..
Just wanted to grab the chance to congratulate everyone on their times at london, especially Malcs, Sarah and Minni.
I managed it in 3:47 in the end and i'm not too disappointed for a first go.
I found a post i wrote last year that said something along the lines of 'I want to do Silverstone half in 1:40 and London marathon in 4:30' ... great to see that after hitting 1:30 and 3:47 respectively.
All of your advice really helped with the marathon prep and on the day so thank you very much.
Sean - that's fantastic! Well done. I hope you will be doing another one? With that HM time you are easily capable of thrashing 3:30 and beyond.
So what happened with the pen in the end? Did you still end up at the back?
Would love to hear a race report when you have time. How were those final 6 miles?
Mr P - Hope the cold is easing. Wow that looks like quite a challenge! I would love to do an ultra at some point. Looks like a very pretty course.
Malcs - Thank you. Bigger congrats on your time, 26 minutes is outrageuos! I just wrote a really long report and my browser went mental lost it... I gave you credit in there and everything.
I'll write it again, in word this time, and get it on here asap
Oh dear - yes, it's an unwritten rule of the forums that if any post is over a few paras you are always best copying it somewhere before pressing the commit button.
Also, if it's a long one then beware as there is a maximum length for a post. Don't worry just split it over several posts.
Looking forward to hearing how you got on!
