Hi Franny- I am feeling a lot better & saw my osteopath again who was pleased with my improvement. 6.1 miles this morning which felt ok. Can you text me your number and let me know what you are wearing on the day so that I can find you. Could be a bit noisy to here phones ringing!! Looking forward to it,but, may struggle to keep up with you!!
Well I saw the Osteopath and got all taped up last week and am back tomorrow.
Managed a couple of runs and 100% certain that I will do London,but, aim to enjoy the occasion rather than getting fixed on a time. My Osteopath seems confident that I should be ok. So feeling happier than I was.
Had a good day at the Brighton Marathon yesterday supporting loads of friends running it. Incredible atmosphere & made me wish I was running it!! At least it helped me make up my mind that London is going to happen for me and am now looking forward to enjoying the atmosphere!!!
So Franny I shall see you there and hope to be able to keep up with you!!!
Franny- I have only done one 20 miler. The training for this marathon has been really dispiriting. One niggle after another. Now have my back and backside taped up and another osteoptah appointment on Tuesday. She thinks I should be ok for London!! I feel very underprepared...but, will get to the start line and will finish come hell or high water. Had hoped to go our for a long run over easter but couldn't as in a lot of pain when I ran on Friday. Getting old is no fun!! So if I can keep up with you in London I will be a very happy man!!
Hi Franny. Think I will be traveling up on the day. I would be happy to run with you- need to work out how to find you & hopefully be in the same starting pen. RE speed at the moment I am really slow and think I will struggle to go sub 4 hours! However, I would like to run with someone as only one other person from the club is running.
I hate running in the afternoon!! Not sure what to do with my long runs now as everyone I have been training with is doing Brighton 2 weeks before and therefore no one to do long runs with.
How many more long runs are you planning?
DId 10 yesterday and may just do a couple of 15 miles in the next couple of weeks.
Managed 20 miles yesterday in 3.07 so similar pace to Franny. Somewhat hilly, but had the company of 4 ladies from my club!! Not sure when my next long run is all of the people I am training with our doing Brighton Marathon on 13/4 so they have done their long runs. May have to man up and do a long one myself.
Franny-Well done for all of your training you will be flying in London!
MC- RE Manchester- I guess it is whether you are wanting a time or not? Still have a little time left for a long run.Not sure where you have got upto.
