When are most people going to the Expo? It'll be Saturday afternoon for me.
Where are you staying Friday night?
Nice 40 x 25m front crawl for me this morning no run today, tempo and short recovery run tomorrow.
My aim is to go as far as possible under 3hrs, I did 2:58:18 last year. Things over the last few weeks have started to come together I just hope the heat of last year stays away and we can have a cool one. See you all in Chandos for a pint, I travel over from Northern Ireland on the Friday and will go stright to the expo.
good running going on guys!!
sorry I've been missing in action been a busy old week last week at work what with the world and his wife jetting off on holiday it was rather busy at Heathrow...
Now I'm just awaiting the onset of taper maddness as Brighton is a little over 2 weeks for me eeeeeekkkkk!!
Biscuit Nikki We get the Gatwick express train into Victoria our hotel is not far from the finish so I'll drop off my bags then go to the Expo. We are staying for 5 days and nights again and enjoy the trip every year.
VikW enjoy the taper all the hard works been done.
7 miles Tempo this morning.
Thanks for the info.
On a separate note - my knee (just the right one) has started cracking, ver quietly, when i walk upstairs. Seems to have developed since Sunday's race. ITB feels a little tight but not too bad and I've been foam rolling, which I do anyway. Any ideas from you experienced marathon runners? It's not painful - just a bit disconcerting and put me off running last night just in case. I'm sorting out a sports massage for next week anyway as an 'MOT' so if it's still occuring I'll mention it then.
7 miles at MP this morning
B Nikki your doing all the right things for the knee, foam roller
H MomUK don't panic we can all have off days during training sessions, the taper will make you feel 100% fresher come race day, just don't go off to fast.
Hannah - don't worry about the 20 miler, look after your injuries and take it easy now. It normally takes me about 4 hours to run 20 miles!
Not running today, hoping to do about 13-15 tomorrow
Have a good day everyone
Flat foot Ted all the Best for both marathons.
MWW hope your run to day is good i'm just about to head out for 14 with 5 miles at MP.
Fruityg nice last long run it's funny how some of the short runs can be worse than the long stuff i'm sure everything will go like a dream on the big day.
Flat foot - god luck with the double! I had planned on doing the Great Welsh Marathon this weekedn and VLM next, but no way am I fit enough so only dong VLM!
No Pian - how was your 14?
I did 15 on Saturday, it was slow but okay. Feeling quite coldy again today and surrounded by lurgies! Hope to do a couple of 4-5 milers this week with a couple of miles at MP, but not running today. Really don't need a cold this close to VLM!
