Lost a bit of time in the toilet...brutal headwind but don't think I could've gone much faster. 

What a shame you specified 'headwind', rather than saying 'wind'.  You'd have been in pun city!

Unbelievably great marathon.  Well done.  There have been some great PBs on this thread this autumn, and this is surely amongst the best.

Velloo - I think that gets you a champs place in VLM??

11/11/2013 at 14:17

15W - I expect velloo could have had a champs place in VLM already with a half time - I seem to remember her recent half PB is faster than mine.

Come on Velloo - you got to get yourself a Champs place at London...you'll be starting just behind the elites and will be mixing with all the creme de la creme like Lit. Plus, then you could join in the P&D spring marathon thread.

And then you could knock another half hour off your PB.

Wow Velloo!  Well done, also want to know your secret.  Please tell me it was adding one legged squats, a plank and 2 lots of circuit classes a week...

I am starting P&D mid Dec for manchester, who is in?

11/11/2013 at 23:19

Me! (VLM not Manchester). Isn't Manchester a week before VLM this year?

Who wants to start a new thread then?

11/11/2013 at 23:39

Come on... I'm too shy to start it.

12/11/2013 at 08:38

Done it.

12/11/2013 at 08:39

I'm in for vlm but don't feel sufficiently established in the marathon circles to start a thread!

Cheers! The secret to knocking so much time off my marathon is....
Not running marathons. The only other one I've done was Dublin in 2010, since then I've joined a club and got all my other times down so my training paces for this mara were much faster.
I'm not doing London, qualified for a champs place last year on my HM time too but I'm going to leave it a few years. I want to work on my 10k time. The beach is calling, bye for now!

Hmmm, food for thought there Velloo. I will see what happens in the Spring but if not much of an improvement (if any) then maybe I will work on my other distances (which are weak in comparison to marathon times).

Enjoy the beach and we're over on the new Spring thread should you want to stay around

Massively late to this thread.

Really interesting reading what people have posted. Seems like the emotions i have been feeling are similar.

I am currently training for Chester using the 18w at 55-70 - chasing a GFA sub 3.05.

Late? Massively late? ONE YEAR LATE!! ... this is last year's thread.


Move on, nothing to see here... back to 2014.

Miscalculated my timings for seville and finish plan a week too soon any recommendations for which week to repeat? I was thinking the penultimate one?

enjoying the 18 week upto 55 miler the lactate threshold sessions certainly feel like an event, psyching up for the solid 6 miler this week and working out how to run 14 miles before work and arrive on time!!!!!
