Gosh hotels already!
I've entered the Half because I'm a bit poor at the moment and a half is enough to keep me out of trouble for the year without the mammoth training hours.
I'm also gonna be a sherpa.

There will be trouble when the List Fairy spots what you've done.

I live to upset the Fairy....... although I won't live for long when she finds out

Good job irondreamer. My first too. I wouldn't hang around too long for hotels - at the Premier Inn they don't take any money until you've checked out so you've little to lose. I also paid an extra £10 or so to allow me to modify the booking at any time, in case things change.

Right, when can I start asking questions about Fink...?

10/10/2012 at 21:07

My first too chaps - I'm pleased that I'm by no means on my own here. We've got a motorhome so we'll (me - and the wife and offspring support team!) be staying at the Caravan Club site just down the road.

I'm booked into the Premier Inn Marlow too, with the £10 supplement. For Saturday and Sunday nights. My current thinking is that the family might not even bother coming. Alternatively they will just visit Sunday. One consideration is that I might end up in Henley/Marlow on my own and over the limit, trying to hitch to a station!

Blistres/Cheggers/Bagder and anyone else - just to let you know, I'm fairly local to Henley and do a fair bit of cycling round parts of the course, so if you have any logistics questions feel free to ask.

Also happy to organise a recce of the course nearer the time if anyones fancies it?

11/10/2012 at 11:22

Rafiki (and others!), I'm not exactly far away (Amersham) but don't know that part of the world all that well. Might know more after Sunday since I'm doing the half-marathon there. If I think of anything though I'll be asking - thanks.

Definately up for a recce nearer the time.

11/10/2012 at 12:04

+1 on the recce. I will definitely be up for that. Once the new course details have been published I'd be interested to hear your opinion of it.

Anyone using one of the Fink plans for training?

recce sounds good to me too!

not sure on training plans yet.... still pouring over the books!

I will be there, probably half arsed.My head and heart are disconnected on which distance to enter!

Hope, I see you are down for the half. Have you stuck to the IM retirement plan?

11/10/2012 at 13:48

I'm sussing out the Fink but think I'll probably end up on it. Not sure how my skiing holiday and summer holidays will fit in yet and also since I cycle as my main transport I'm not sure if that'll stuff it up. Looking at lots and learning lots at the moment!

Cheggers - the first loop of the half marathon is basically the run course - nice and flat (unlike the second part of the half mara - enjoy)
