Just read in the vlm website. GFA entries open in June and they have reviewed the Manchester marathon fiasco and they will add 2 min to your time if you're under 70. So all those who were hoping to use Manchester to qualify have been allowed.. Woohoo I'll be doing London again.
does anyone get bloods taken to keep an eye on things? before London, i went to get my blood tested just to see what this way of eating is doing to the various components. as expected my cholesterol went up. both HDL (1.53)and LDL (4.39)but the ratio is ok and the triglycerides are down at 1.13. is this the kind of think i should expect!
Shades - I have been thinking about how to pace it and even I know that doing the first 26.2 at MP will be suicide..I dont think i could of run any further on sunday, so i was thinking of running at 8min/mile for the first 26.2 and then if I feel up to it, I was going to pick the pace up until I either got to the 6 hrs or until my legs couldn't carry me any more. I guess i would aim for about 40 miles..
I spoke to a guy ,after finishing london, and he is the race director at hermes running club and heads up the uk and ireland comrades facebook page. His name is David Ross, a fellow southern african, and he said to me that if ever i decided to go into the world of ultras, that I should give him a call. could be interesting.
