Thanks for that update - really helps to have some local info on the course and let's hope the puddles don't accumulate over the next few weeks. Doing my last 22 miler tomorrow and so far so good. Am really looking forward to running the course as it does sound different to the usual road races. Keep us updated with the state of the course if you can - I may revert to trail shoes on the day if it sounds too muddy/wet.
I did Chester marathon 3 weeks ago so am just picking up on that training plan again - ie slotting back into the last weeks - so will do my last 22 miler three weeks before ie Dec 1st. Followed it for London too and seemed to work - did two18s and a 20 and two 22 miles so that seems to work for me.
Doing a local cross country race this Sunday so an easier week but will do 20 next weekend. Did a very wet and windy hilly 6 miles tonight and managed to keep warm even though wet - all good December practice.
Just done a showery and windy 18 miles along the Torquay/Paignton seafronts so feel my coastal specific training well under way! Wind as ever seemed to be against me in both directions but surprisingly warm so not a bad one at all. Beginning to quite look forward to the challenge of a December marathon!
