Morning all, no running this weekend for me as I'm on a rugby tour with my son which means I can't get a long run in.
Most of you seem to be doing your last long runs this weekend and then starting your taper. I was thinking I may do gentle slow long run on Good Friday and with still over two weeks out from race day I should be ok, any thoughts?
I'm feeling good, strong and positive after last weekends half at Wilmslow, finished it strongly with plenty still in the tank and no side effects this week.
Have a great weekend everyone, enjoy your running and look after yourselves.

AM - sorry to see hear of your flu bout and gutted you're missing Wilmslow this weekend. I'll be picking up a M t-shirt this weekend, I'd happily post it to you if you can privately message me a postal address?
Rocky - Good luck at Wilmslow, weather forecast looks decent.
As mentioned Wilmslow this weekend at strict marathon pace, do not want to get swept up with adrenalin and faster runners which will be good conditioning and discipline for Manchester. I will top this off with a run home which will conclude my long runs for Manchester.
Good luck everyone else with HM's, 20 milers or just plain old long runs. The start line isn't far away now!
I've had a miserable week last week with calf/shin probs and then a massive back spasm on Friday during a run that curtailed my running for the week. Went to see my physio on Saturday and the good news is she sorted out my legs a treat but the brutality my back took has left me very sore and tender. May try to get some gentle miles in tonight, will see how it goes.
