Doughnuts are very nutritious - don't they count towards your 5 portions of fruit and veg???? I hope so, I bought a box of mini chocolate ones which I've been chomping through - and I don't really like doughnuts - must be something about all this running.

Having decided on vest and shorts for my marathon d├ębut the weather had better get warmer again!

Ignorant question here please - do they have pacers starting in each of the starts - blue, red, green - or do you just have to hope to catch up with them at some point?

Pacers will be at each of the starts DL.  They have a stand at the Expo and can tell you all about the service.  Chocolate doughnuts?  Yum.

Chocolate doughnuts?  Not for me.  I like my chocolate uncontaminated thank you.  I've just snaffled a whole bar of Dairy Milk, but in my defence I did swim 8.2k this morning so needed the energy.

8.2k caz?? I can't believe that no-one has commented on that swim! Serious black line fever after that I'm sure.

haha IP we did comment on other threads! It is an awesome distance!

Hey guys, thanks for the support, so appreciated. However I've deferred, I'm not injured just running a bit under par and skint.

I'm taking a year off London but will be back.

Run well, good luck and all have a fab time!

Aw shame we won't be seeing you KK, but good news you are not injured and can do it next year instead

Thanks B

KK, big shame about that.  Hopefully I can get GFA and will catch up with you next year!  Although...  I'm sure I said somewhere that I'm never running a marathon again.  Okay, hopefully I won't get GFA.  Anyway, as B says, good news you're not injured.

When you said whole bar, Caz, did you mean family sized like I would...?

Sorry to hear that KK.  Are you going to pop along and join us supporting instead?

Ratzer, a whole bar is one of those 220g bars.  Sometimes I go for the slightly smaller 180g ones if they are on special offer.

I've decided to pull out of my marathon too.  I've not put the training in and although I could get round I don't think I would enjoy it.

I think I'd never race if I thought I had to be fully, properly and carefully trained before I could...  But then I know the odd runners who seem to be permanently in base training.

So, what is everyone doing for their LR this weekend?  Anyone testing out chocolate egg as a gel replacement?

07/04/2012 at 18:52
Ratzer, I imagine eating a Creme Egg while running might prove to be a tad difficult! 18 miles for me with the last 6.2 at marathon pace.

Good running CC2

I was given a creme egg for volunteering at parkrun this morning ... I did wait until after my run to eat it though, I agree they are not ideal runing fuel ... nice though!

15.5 for me all slow.  Just about to have my chocolate reward...
08/04/2012 at 15:02
Well earned Ratzer

I very much enjoyed my 18 miler with the last 10k @ MP. I got to spend that last 10k playing sergeant major and bullying a friend round to a PB No chocolate for me though, I'm dairy intolerant. I have had a rather nice homemade dairy free hot cross bun though. And a large amount of roast turkey with half a plateful of chips (and four sprigs of broccoli for good measure).

Good to see you are getting the superfoods in CC2 ... by that I mean the chips obviously
Actually we treated ourselves to take out fish and chips last night, it was bloomin' lovely!

Today I have mostly been eating cake.

Thanks themp.  Can you leave the gel at the RW stand at Expo, with it labelled with your name and Support Group 3, so that we know it is yours.  I could supply you with a gel but it would probably be the wrong brand for you.
