I saw Gary Speed (RIP indeed) a couple of years back running the London Marathon, looking unhappy as a big gang of Welsh fans failed to notice him (they were hugging their own runner to be fair), and also Nell McAndrew last year. This year I saw Jonathan Pierce (football commentator) looking very tired around mile 18 and Cheryl Baker at the same point with a couple of very glum looking friends.
While running I've gone past Alan Davies (from QI) outside Highbury tube station.
Hi, I'm doing the Edinburgh Marathon in May. By being a plonker I've managed to miscalculate my schedule and have a spare week between now and 27th May. What should I do? I don't want to be undercooked but was thinking I could have a week of focused speed training, or maybe even a break from running and do some swimming or cycling. Any thoughts?
Great day, didn't manage my target time (finished in 4.19) but still really proud of myself and already thinking about another one, maybe Nottingham in September. Hope everyone enjoyed their day - see you next year!
