Sounds pretty damn good Kharnivore ... Amazing first marathon .. Well done

Great time FRC very close to GFA

Wabo no wonder you could not sleep adrenaline and tiredness will have kept you up and all that effort .. After 2007 my most effort by a long way really hardly slept, felt like a car crash .. Truly put me off pushing myself.

My mate Amanda did 4.12 which was a PB by about 20 mins .. Awesome stuff.
Wonder how LO 65 got on

Some excellant marathons times, well done all. I watched on TV and really missed being part f it but has made me more determined to run next year.

Kharinere, that's good for a first marathon. You can kearn from that and your next will be better. My first was 6:25 due tio injury which could have been avoided but came back for the next a year later and did 3:46.

Well Wabo, Martin and everyone!

I'm inspired to try and run this morning. Have had a couple of weeks of with back pains but feeling better at the moment.

22/04/2013 at 09:10
Have a good run Howard.

Well done London runners! Such impressive times - I'm inspired as well. 

I was watching from the lucozade stand around the 24 mile mark - did any of you notice who was handing out your Lucozade? I had my photo taken with Leigh Halfpenny, it made my day. 

I will be entering the ballot for next year, failing that I'm just going to have to train super hard and get myself a GFA for the year after

I cannot believe what I am about to post, but I will go back next year and now feel I know how to go sub four... The schedule worked so well this year for sub 4.15, I just have regained confidence in my running, feel a better runner and think its achievable. But, I know that my other slower marathons were more fun! Just not so satisfying.  Had 9 that were more fun. now for one more and if I do not get sub 4 that's fine.

1) 1m - 9:12

2) 1m - 8:54

3) 1m - 8:48

4) 1m - 8:46

5) 1m - 9:01

6) 1m - 9:08

7) 1m - 9:18

8) 1m - 9:11

9) 1m - 9:10

10) 1m - 9:19

11) 1m - 9:17

12) 1m - 9:19

13) 1m - 9:25

14) 1m - 9:22

15) 1m - 9:22

16) 1m - 10:24

17) 1m - 9:36

18) 1m - 9:42

19) 1m - 10:28

20) 1m - 9:49

21) 1m - 9:59

22) 1m - 9:57

23) 1m - 10:04

24) 1m - 10:54

25) 1m - 8:57 tunnel so not strictly correct

26) 1m - 10:02

 0.48m - 4:24(9:11/m) 

Have I ever done just over 10mm at the ened of a marathon I wonder???? No!!!

You will go sub 4 if you keep training hard Wabo.
22/04/2013 at 13:24

Wabo - cracking!

FRC - OMG so close - but wow - great time!

Khanivore - you are SO goign to do sub 4 next time.  Sorry about the loo break - how annoying.  Great learning for first time.

Martin - as usual - brilliant.

Coops - sorry, who's Leigh Halfpenny?

22/04/2013 at 15:13
Wabo ... Cracking stuff .. You must tell me your secret .. I am thinking I might have to try in 3 years and go for GFA if I am still running about. I might even do more hard training and I would def book a couple of days off after.. It never helps thinking eat you have to face the next day.

Umbongo .. How nice to see you ... Did you want to congratulate me and Ikle for Brighton last weekend ? ? my 12 th since you ask ... And commiserate with poor Hen who very sensibly and correctly pulled out having done epic training ....
22/04/2013 at 20:02
Hope all the VLMers recovering nicely .. Quiet here.
22/04/2013 at 20:09
Hello all, de-lurking from Rachel and dave's thread. You've all done brilliantly. What an incredible atmosphere yesterday, I was close to tears a few times!

Was my first marathon and my plan was for 3'45. I was a bit fixated on sub 4 in the lead up. Finished in 4'06 (must have been just behind you kharnivore!) which I thought I would be disappointed with but I'm not, I'm over the bloody moon.

Hope no-one else's legs are in the same state as mine. Pls tell me it's to going to be worse tomorrow???
22/04/2013 at 20:54
Well done Will! Quite possibly they will be worse tomorrow .. I remember that feeling
22/04/2013 at 21:08

AH - Leigh Halfpenny is a rugby player, plays for Wales. 

Hi Will - my legs didn't get any worse the second day.. but they also didn't get any better 

22/04/2013 at 22:01
Oh god, don't think I can handle another day of walking on them!
22/04/2013 at 22:04
Well done Will! It's weird right? We both missed our target time and sounds like we are both as happy as one another. Don't worry we will both smash 4 hours on our next one. When is the next one for you?
22/04/2013 at 22:07
Thanks. Congrats to you kharnivore! Probably not till Edinburgh next year, how about you?
22/04/2013 at 22:08
I'm already signed up for Brighton next year, the week before London. I would love to do one in October though but I have to think about whether I could do it justice.
