Hi all - just checking in to see how everyone did at Chester! I have had shite few weeks with illness and life getting in way of training so I swapped my full marathon place to the metric. Had a lovely race, really enjoyed it and finished in 2:14. Was great to link in with the marathoners but felt a bit of a fraud! Saw Mennania at the finish too. Well done everyone - you all sound like the magic P&D did the trick and am interested to also read the success with the Hanson plan too.
Ha, yes - many a time I have ran in front of a car at a junction JUST so I don't have to stop during a tempo session. It seems death is more appealing than a dodgy split.
Madbee - yes I did Manchester then London the week later, then kept up distance training as had an ultra booked in June but had to pull out of it. So I have pretty much kept up consistent running, just not PB marathon mileage. However I am not attempting a PB at Chester... (we all know I will cos I is a twat).
