still lurking......just not had time to post, I am in awe of all these marathons, amazing I have ballot place for London which means I need to start my 16 week plan on 23rd Dec. Plan to start a week earlier to allow for Christmas disruption...Have run 3 marathons getting slower each time 5.17, 5.22, 5.33. Would dearly love to run London in 5. Since York in Oct have been ticking over with about 3 runs a week of not more than 6 miles, also walk, swim occasionally and do yoga. Just wondered the difference between the 2 Shades plans? Are they aimed at runners hoping for a specific time? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
Hope your toe is better soon Shades.
Sorry to hear about your accident Emmy, amazing you went on to run. Hope you are ok now.
Just seen myself on the TV, running next to Harry G after he has been interviewed at mile 18! Anyone else seen themselves? It inspired me to snip the chip off my running shoes, put on my finishers shirt and go for my first run in 2 weeks and it felt good!
Hate the end of threads....thank you for all your support, advice, sympathy and laughs. Will check into the new thread next year but my plan at mo is to volunteer to be a marshall.
Skiprat, have you found a London thread yet? They all seem well established or specific to a charity etc
thanks Mowser for the helpful advice, much appreciated re toes, one had bad blister and I am losing the nail and 2 others have blackened nails, not nice! Will probably start to run again next week and mix it with some swimming and cycling.
Just read your race report, well done! 30, amazing!
