Good luck everyone. Have a brilliant day and I look forward to reading about your triumphs on Monday. I work on the 14th floor of a building right next to Blackfriars Bridge and I can say that London (and the Embankment across the Thames in particular) is looking spectacular this morning. Sunday does look like it's gonna be a hot one, though, say make sure you take advantage of the showers around the course.
Been a while since I posted, but have been reading with interest (and a smattering of jealousy). I just want to wish you all good luck for races this weekend and for the VLM a week on Sunday. It really is an amazing day and one that will stay with you forever. You'll even be surprised how quickly the day goes (although time does tend to stand still from miles 20-24) and before you know it you'll be planning your next. My only advice is to enjoy it. You've done the hard work getting to the start line, this is the fun bit. Honest.
I've deferred for next year, so maybe we'll share the pain again (although hopefully most of you will be in the sub-3.45 thread).
I can only go by the treatment I've received, but about 80% of my physio work has been concentrated on my back – some of which has left me in quite some pain for a few days. My physio then sends me away with some stretches and strengthening work to do that focus on my groin, glutes and lower back – all of which will help stability around the core. It's been a slow and frustrating process (and ultimately has ended in the disappointment of not running London this year), but I'm hoping that when I get back I'll be better for it.
