Mudchute Live 22/04/2012
I had a really bad dream last night. I was setting off to the start line with loads of old school mates when I realised that I hadn't been to the Expo the day before so I didn't have a number! Cue agonised decision making over what to do, run it unofficially, steal a number... when someone finally pointed out that they'd gone for me and got my number. (Anything can happen in dreams.) And back to dreamless slumber...
Do you allocate yourself to one of these groups or how does it work? It will be brilliant to get some support at mile 17
My number's briliant!
I'll be wearing a white vest with SALLY on the front
I'm hoping for sub 5 and have just run the Worthing 20 in 3 hours 32 mins. Should be at mile 17 in 3 hours 15 mins
Some jelly babies and a smile and a wave would be good
Hi Sally, The groups were assigned a week ago, but you are welcome to join us. It would be great to see you. I've added you to the magic spreadsheet.
If you haven't already then please read back as there is some info about what to expect etc, but if you have any more questions then just ask.
I can report sunshine in Essex today too!
Updating with some further details:
running number: 18550
wearing white "Team PB" vest with SUZ on the front
I'm hoping it's nice and cool on the day too, I don't enjoy running in the heat as I'm not used to it.
Hope everyone's training is going well - not long to go now
South Wales here too and beautiful today too.
Too hot to run, but I did just so I'd get the idea in case it's hot on the day.
Maddy, I did find it useful. My race pace is not going to work if it's this hot, and it'll have to be scaled back. Estimate on reaching mile 17 is going to be 5-6 minutes slower if the weather gets like this! I found it like running through treacle on uphills, but we're not going to have any of those, luckily. And water on the back of the neck regularly is vital, as well as keeping your mouth wet. All fun and games - you can tell I didn't have a wonderful run! A hat at mile 17 might be a good idea, if it's getting sunnier through the race. I don't like wearing them usually.
KK - very amusing - your 'only' five miles was what I did tonight too- sadly there was no 'only' in mine-though I suppose it was half true - for some reason it seemed like a very long way. Away from home and an odd single track road that kept on, and on, and on. Just missing the ly then
Norfolk weather report - wall to wall sunshine too
Will locate my marathon number and post a picture when I get home as I did Loughborough half at the weekend in what I intend to wear on the day.
Hope the training is going well for everyone - certainly sounds like it is
We certainly seem to have a predominance of people from the south in our group.
I've got to confess that I am letting the running slack off again. I'd much prefer to be swimming in this weather and will be in the water almost every day this week.
from what i read, from the BBC etc
if we dont get some rain soon, we could have problems
Draycote Water nr Rugby , i've never ever seen so low
