Ha, Reikirabbit, I had Gordon Ramsay last year! I don't know my pen yet - not expo-ing till Saturday, but have been green the last few years on my GFA time so will definitely look out for you.
WW, great effort! Negative split! Yey!
Thanks KR. looking forward to catching up again soon.
Joddly, please do say Hi if you see me at green. I'm currently hunting down my poncho collection ready for the sheltering.. Are you going for a target in the race?
Your comments make me want to say highlight again just how instrumental the people on this thread were in helping me get the pacing thing. I can be a bit slow on the uptake when it's not news I want, and changing complicated habits can be hard, which is frustrating to watch I know (sorry!!), but a combination of the evidence of my own training reflected back at me on here by all your comments, excellent advice, timely tellings off and encouragement did eventually change my mindset on that. The swiftness with which people identified race pacing as a weak point was also really helpful. Going into this process I couldn't have predicted how much my mindset about training could change in just four months. It's hard to communicate that in a forum post, but everyone on here's role in that is very much appreciated.
Good luck to Rosie and others running London.
Coming late to the thread but doing Edinburgh in 5-6 weeks which I notice you are doing too Rosie... I may sneak up behind you and stalk - in a nice way - if I see you.
Reading back for various tips mentioned above about pacing & nutrition.
All the best to FH on Sunday, red and blue are in different areas of the Park so forget that. You meet up after three miles........
FRC see you at Edinburgh but I will be behind you, more a four hour plus15 mins sort of time is my silver medal option.
Going to run round the Bamford Dams on Sunday, famous for the Bouncing Bomb film Dambusters got a route about 19 miles should be wet and fun!!! IF 19 miles can be fun!!! ENjoy LE WEEKEND all.
Success doesnt come to you, you go to it!!
Did Gordon Ramsey finish last year? Dont think he finished the year I ran it in 2010?
Cant believe Rosie is heading to London to run another marathon!!!!!!! What do the legs feel like? Oh to be young again!!! Only jealous have a great run.
mcs, will see you at Edinburgh and for a beer afterwards
I'm going for sub 3:30 ... (even 3:29:5x would be fine ).. hence my future stalking of Rosie. in a nice running sense only of course.
1:35 for a half marathon 4 weeks ago, with lots of energy to spare, and lots of good training last 3-4 months.
