Hey all Emmy's a bit busy so I'll take up the batton.
Pre-marathon photo: 7:45am Sunday morning by the information desk/meeting point before bag drop?
Post-marathon pub: we're doing a bit of a marathon raid and are back on planes that evening so probably won't make it unless it's early. I don't know barca that well so can't suggest either so can someone staying Sunday night take up the drinkies batton?
Jimbob - Yup, toenails have been trimmed to within of their life.
Tinkerbel - I really want to see the shoe whisperer. Trip to Brussels would have been cheaper than this! Would he be up for a wknd in London so we can all use him? There's quite a few of us who'd like to use his expertise so bringing him here might be even cheaper but would mean missing out on a wknd of your hospitality.
Okay, I'm putting it to the forum. Have been trying to find a new shoe and seems mizuno wave inspire 10 is working but toes and forefoot got very cramped during 20 miler on Sunday...should I get a half size bigger?...but they won't be worn in for barca...but don't really want to lose toenails to it either.
Hey all, been lurking but had a very tough time over the past month so couldn't bring myself to post. Calf packed it in and then I caught a virus which knocked me out for 2 weeks. Have had to have a major refocus and step back from any big time goals to completing barca, paris and London. Managed a very steady Silverstone half to come in at 2:08 then tacked on 11km to the pub (and I bet everyone driving because of the traffic! ) so at least I have a recent 20miler in the bag. Based on that i'm going to try for a consistent pace per km in barca of 5:50-6:10 which I think is doable anyway there's my rant. Looks like all the speedys are clocking in well. Big congratulations to everyone who's made it to taper. The end is nigh.
Monk - have you tried a factory reset. You'll lose all the activities on it but has saved a few. Check out the garmin help for instructions.
