Emmy - I'd be really interested in going to Berlin but I guess the race is full already?
bootsie - I wasn't sure if you'd booked a weekend in Dublin. But Cork is a great place to be.
mamafox - do let us know how you get on at the Cognac marathon, I've never heard of that one.
Kingkenny - nothing to stop you writing a hybrid of the 2 plans to suit you.
Khanivore - yes, you're right the predictors can be a bit reckless when based on short race times, but should you take to the longer runs and find the endurance of the amrathon to your liking then in the future you could achieve those time. But it can take years to reach your potential in the marathon.
Slowkoala - I think you will achieve all of those goals
Keith - yes, the Irish races are expensive...but worth it Great Welsh is here http://www.humanbeingactive.org/marathon
Lovely and mild again today, had a great run
@Shades - Entries open tomorrow at 12pm CET so you can already plan it in...
@Mamfox - I'm another one interested in cognac I saw them advertising it at Medoc and it looked like a great marathon.
My knee was hurting yesterday from the 4 flights of stairs at work so i'm having a rest day and will head out tomorrow if it's better.
Emmy - so that's 11am here?
Hi Shades - Yes - 11am UK Time.
jazz weekend shades! can't wait now
4.3 miles done last night.. feeling much stronger! Runners are coming to ireland with me to get some of that good country air
Emmy - Sounds very tempting your plans re Berlin! Had a lovely time in Barcelona. A must see city! Unfortunatly I spent one whole day and night in bed with a bug. A few others got it too. I was very ill The marathon was the day before thankfully so got that out the way. Turned out a bit warm which caught a few of us out.Anyway 4 days to go!!
Does Berlin fill up quickly? I dont recall entering that soon after it opened when i did it
Shades, are you still offering your programme if someone were to email you?
Nykie - yes, mail me your email address
VR - I didn't know you'd been poorly in Barcelona, you poor thing.
Emmy - I'll try and register for Berlin at 11 am today, hope the website doesn't fall over and our internet at work is rubbish, wobbly at the best of times.
Keith - didn't know you'd done Berlin.
Still mild and a bit of light rain today, forecast for Dublin is very cold, not happy with that
@Shades - good luck. I've blocked my calendar and am hoping I can get on in time. Here's hoping the Germans can organise the registration better than the Parisians!
VR - you're right I checked with the organisers and specifically asked them in German and they said that this way should speed up the process for us.
I succesfully registered for Berlin at 11 am precisely, very efficient. So will wait until November now for follow up email, hopefully all will be OK
I was SO suprised to see the Berlin entry be so easy! I was another in at the opening time and got my confirmation email. They're expecting the entire race to fill up within 3 hours :/ It's crazy!
I've sorted out my flight, apartment and race entry... I guess now I just need to train for it!
@VR- have you registered?
"butts in" Hello everyone! I promised that I wouldn't come on again until I did a sub4 mara.....and here I am! I've lost over 2 stones (still over a stone to go mind) and I did Pescara marathon and came in at 3.58.59 so basically I just scraped under but I did it.
"Oscar-type speech" I would like to thank LMUH for putting me in contact with my sports nutritionist at a moment when I'd hit rock bottom and Shades for always believing that I could do it and a big thanks to anyone that knows me.
Enough about me...what are you all up to?
Well done Marathon Molly!!! That's fantastic! When was it? Was it hilly? You can't come in and drop that bombshell without telling us about the race
