Bartholomew I was just about to say the same thing about carb loading. By eating well in the few days leading up to the race you're carb loading by default because you're not using it up by running/training.  Also, the glycogen stores in the liver/muscles aren't that big (so don't take THAT much to fill up).  If they were huge no one would run out of juice at 18/20 miles.

There's also a lot of water storage associated with fat storage (which would be the result of too much carb loading)  and all that extra fat and water would just make you feel fat and sluggish.

Just eat wel, stay off your feet and get some sleep!

Sorry I've not been on.

Congratulations to everyone for Brighton - cant believe the sun made an unexpected return!

Good luck for all VLM's tomorrow. I'm heading down to watch it to support a friend and I'll be around at mile 12 and 24. Hope you all enjoy it and the hard months of training pay off. I know they will. Most of all have fun x

Yes, be brilliant, everyone! Stick to your plan and as Martin 24601 would say, you're brilliant just to be doing it and finishing it. Xx

WT hope to see you

7350 blue pen 3, running kit like this but with Martin on front too.

Aiming for around 3:15-3:20 pace, but calf a bit tight so may have to back off... Resting today now.

Wabo, what number are you again? I'll be painting my flat during the marathon. Suddenly my flat mate is moving out and I'm selling my flat! All systems go for wedding on Saturday, October 26th, 2013. Oh my goodness me!

20/04/2013 at 16:05
Good to see you Ikle, missed you this week, looking forward to all wedding plans.

Martin just gone up for a lie down, he has done expo, done a 5 km run and had a bacon baguette.

I have driven to Brighton and back .. So weird you drive on so much of the course going to James house. Have done 3 loads of his washing and mowed the lawn. It's a beautiful day today! !

Run like the wind everyone, FRC, Martin, Wabo, Kharnivore, LO 65 ...and Didds junior ! !

WT ... Sorry wont see you. Having a rest day tomorrow, a little run and round o my mate who has had an op to watch on the telly. Bliss. Was laughing this morning with Martin about us two years ago going to support Sthephen .. How hung over and grumpy was I ? Ha ha

Thank you for shout out for Didds junior Susan - it's Dan, will be running in obligatory green Macmillan short-sleeve T-shirt with 'DAN' on front, number 7069. Aiming for 4:10 but might be nearer 4:20/4:30.

I will be at Macmillan cheerpoint at mile 25/Embankment with OH - haven't spectated since 2009 so will be a bit strange tbh. Ran in 2007 & 2008, spectated in 2009, absentee in 2010 & 2011 then ran in 2012.

Run like the wind everyone ..

21/04/2013 at 08:43
