Just finished packing my case. I've a flight out tomorrow morning, as I need to go from Ireland to Manchester via Germany (for a meeting).
Need to pack all my business stuff as well as running stuff so I'd say I've written and changed my packing list about 5 times. I also started sneezing this afternoon so am dosing myself up with paracetamol and vit C.
Did my absolutely, positively, definitely last run earlier tonight. Just a very easy 2 1/2 miles.
I'm not sure how much internet connection I'll have now until after the race so good luck everybody. I've enjoyed the mutual support of this forum, so thanks everyone.
Congrats Alan and WJH (seperately). Aren't we a virile bunch ! Surprised you've the energy (or was that before all the training) .
JJ - Don't expect it's anything. I always get little niggles as I start the taper, but rolling it is a good idea anyway. I was just going to post the link to that tram map but see you've just done it.
Caz - love the idea of the nails.
Possibly my last run tonight before the day as I'll be travelling Thursday and Friday. Eight miles done, mostly at marathon pace, but got caught up with a club mate who's hoping for 3:15 - 3:20 and did 2 miles with him at 7 mins 20 sec pace (1 min 15 sec faster than my pace). Ooops.
I think that I'll probably through some high5 sachets in my bag and use that to top up whatever I can find in Germany on the Friday. My normal pre-marathon Friday would involve at least 2 or 3 bottles of High 5 energy source drank throughout the day to help with both hydration and carb loading.
I've been checking my flights and it looks like I won't be in Germany until quite late Thursday evening as I'll have a long stopover in Heathrow.
You'll probably find me in a corner of Heathrow eating jaffa cakes and pasta .
