Thanks for all the good look messages it is really humbling to have so many people's thoughts. Blackers if you could just turn up at about mile 22 to help me through that darkest of hours like last time it would be much appreciated! Although I feel much better prepared this time

I am now sat in the hotel room in Paris but it still doesn't seem that real, I think the expo tonight might do it.

Yesterdays trip out was uneventful, loving the simplicity of the Eurostar. The kids are having fun with Nana and Grandad and 3 miles with strides was excellent, when I looked at the watch the strides were at 4:06 pace, quick, must avoid that at the start!

Again thank you for your thoughts and best wishes.

See you soon KR

On the eurostar now - weather looks ok for Sunday - yes don't run 4:06 mile at the start - not even on the strides!

Good luck for sunday Choisty, hope things go to plan. Us VLM racers will be jealous that you have got yours out of the way. My nerves are starting already and i've still got 8 days to go.

Have a great time guys and enjoy tomorrow.

Best of luck tomorrow Choisty, I hope conditions are favourable and you control the early pace to allow for a strong finish.  Based on your training you definitely have a quick time in you if you get the pacing and fueling right. Look forward to hearing the outcome.

Steve MC - re earlier comments about HR vs pace or perceived effort - thanks for the reply, interesting to get your perspective and backs up my own musings.  I have a lot to learn.  1 even paced decent marathon out of 8 attempts is not a good record.

Choisty - re your question on what marathon I'm doing, I'm not actually planning any marathons this year.  Had committed myself to working on shorter distance times until I felt ready to step back up again but not sure it's working for me and my mind often wanders back to the marathon - espesh at this time of year when the spring marathon hype reaches fever pitch!

Forgot to say, bit late in the day to be posting this and you may all be aware of it already but I think this is quite a useful resource for nutritional information:

I always thought I followed quite a carb rich diet until I realised quite how much the recommended daily intake was!

Hi Choisty, just wanted to wish you all the best for tomorrow. I have been a silent follower of your thread and it's been interesting to read your progress and I've found it very useful with all the good advice and tips from yourself and others. You definitely deserve to achieve your target time as your approach and dedication to your training plan has been exemplary. Good luck and I look forward to hearing how you do. Matt
