That's it! Last 3m run in 29:58. Amazing what a bit of rest can do for you! Sticking to 11:15 miles come Sunday though.

Very, very best of luck to everyone.

How did people do?

21/04/2014 at 10:38

I did 5hrs 38mins. I was doing OK up until half way but then my race fell apart and had to run/walk the rest. I stupidly forgot my cap too, so my head is still peeling. I'm not very good in the heat at the best of times.

Paul, were you wearing bright yellow trousers?

22/04/2014 at 08:30

Bright green. There were 4 male apples, three of whom had green leggings on.

I always end up walking.

That's it. I think you overtook me! You had Paul on your back too?!

VLM Ballot Paul.

23/04/2014 at 09:26
Ah. I see. Not for me any more. I did go for a 26.35 'run' on Monday. Did it in 4:51. Wanted to see what it was like without the costume! Good luck everyone with the ballot.

Helloooo everyone

I did London in 5.46 which was just 7 mins slower than Brighton the week before I'm happy with that for now.

Did Windermere last weekend which I really didn't enjoy - as soon as you came down one hill, the next one started. I managed 6.11 which I am ok with too bearing in mind how hard it was.

God Kent Road Runner on Saturday. Not sure how that will go at the moment

Hello all

My VMLM didn't go too well, did okay until 9 miles then all my injuries re-appeared  I have been trying to build up some mileage again, up to 7 miles now but still struggling. I very much hope to run in the new Swansea HM in July, as this is on my doorstep, but not sure if I will make the 2.30 cut off at the moment!

I didn't enter VMLM ballot this year, the pressure of  but I have entered Brighton so will have to see how it goes!

I have decided that I need to lose some weight as being heavy is not helping my injuries! I  joined slimming world two weeks ago and doing okay so far, 5.5 pound off, so hopefully continue that way!

Roobs - well done on all your Marathons   Hope today is going well

Hi MWW, sounds like you and I have similar conundrums. I have also vowed to lose weight before doing any more runs (Park runs aside) and have also joined Slimming World. I need to lose at least 4 stone though so a long way to go.

Good luck with it all.

14/06/2014 at 08:45

MWW - well done on your weight loss. Hope to see you at Brighton next year. No Beachy this year for Bernard and me. I happy with it after running it 8 years in a row. Going to work on building up my distance slowly and work on my speed.
