Reason why we should train you: I am posting this on behalf of my husband who I am convinced has a sub-2.30 marathon in him. He has achieved 2.36 and was all set to train harder this year but then I was fortunate enough to get pregnant quite quickly after our wedding last December and we had our first baby 11 weeks ago. He now has to figure out how to fit his training around broken nights, early starts and sterilising bottles. He needs a plan which is super-efficient as he will have less time to train, geared to his standard of running and gives him advice on how to make up for any sessions he might miss if things go wrong at home.
I guess the idea of training round a new baby is a problem that will strike a chord with a lot of people and at 36 this may be his last chance to break through that 2.30 barrier. I hope you can help him!
I included a stamped address envelope with my for as normally they just post this back to confirm they have received it. This year, the SAE didn't get returned, so I just called them on the number on the FLM website. They checked (based on my running number) and they said they had my form. Be worth just giving them a call to put your mind at rest.
Hi there - I've just discovered this thread, so sorry if this has been asked before.
Does anyone have any experience of where the best places are to spectate, and whether it is easy enough for spectators to get two or three locations during the marathon? My other half is spectating and is on SIS gel dishing out duty, so any info anyone has will be appreciated. (I'm hoping to go close to 2.35 so need the spectating timings to fit around this if possible?)
