Hi all, i've not run for over a week now, i have a pain in my left shin that i assume is shin splints, so i've rested this week and hopefully i'll be ok for the race . I have ordered some 2xu compression socks and a mueller shin splint compression sleeve from wiggle hoping that these will give some support. Has anybody tried these as a relief from shin splints, do they give any support? Last ditch attempt to be honest, fingers crossed. Good luck to everybody.
Hi all, this is my next marathon having ran my first, the Yorkshire marathon, last week in a time of 3:18:32 and really enjoyed the experience I'm eager to start training again. I was following a runners world 16 week schedule where i was running 6 out of 7 days and knew what i was doing, i feel a bit lost now not having a training plan to follow.
First marathon for me, really pleased to finish in 3:18:31, loved every minute of it, great support and glad the weather was in our favour. Well done to everyone involved, runners, spectators, marshalls, organisers etc. Feel a bit lost now having followed a strict schedule for 16 weeks! When do i start running and how far do I go etc . See you all next year.
I'm starting in zone 2, how were the zones allocated, did we have to declare/estimate a finishing time when entering, i can't remember! As a matter of interest what are your estimated finishing times those that are in zone 2? I've never run a marathon before, i finished GNR in 1:28:59 so would be pleased with sub 3:30 but obviously unsure having not run the distance before.
