Just been refrehshing my memory of the procedures in Barcelona and it mentions that you will receive an e-mail with your bib no. on it. All I have is the original e-mail we were sent when we registered.
Has anyone else received anything with their bib no. on it yet?
Monk, dunner worry about your missed run, I've missed a couple of long ones and throughout have been running when I feel fit and ache free. Last time I made the mistake of following a brutal 6 day a week programme which nearly killed me and had me injured for 6 months. No way that was going to happen this time.
Last long run (3 hrs running) was on Friday. Reading half next week but nothing above 13 miles from here on in - Hurrah!
Wenty, unless I am being completely thick ( quite likely) a marathon is 42.2km and 20 miles is 32k, so I'd have 10.2k to do in 50 mins for 3:25 or 55 minutes for 3:30. Normally a piece of cake, but when you've got 20 miles in your legs a 60 minute 10k can feel like a challenge!
Incidentally, the FC Barcelona game has been confirmed for a 5pm kick off on marathon day which seems pretty ideal to me
Did the Bramley 20 this weekend, 2:35:51. Think my goal will be reassessed downwards. I'm thinking 3:30 is challenging but achievable. Anything quicker ain't gonna happen, particularly as I was on me last legs towards the end. 1 more long run to go then Reading half and that's it
