Ha ha the perils of posting after a few glasses of wine!
It is great that you're such an advocate for the forums Seren as they are a great place and you seem so passionate about them. I think my problem maybe is the way I read everyone's posts. I suppose it is all in the interpretation. I guess it will just become worse in future years with the forums being marginalised as it's a niche market and social media with its greater demographic being pushed.....
Hey Roger, congrats on being picked for the asics 26.2. I am doing London and will be interested to see what your training looks like. I did try and follow A.W's lat year but it didn't really happen! How many miles do you in a normal week at the moment? It would be interesting to see what base mileage you're starting from. I really want to break the 3 hour barrier but I have to shave off 3 minutes not just the one like you! Good luck for the coming months!
Some very good points Dave and Max . I went to bootcamp last year and really enjoyed it . I didn't make the vote but those that did did not seem to experience the vitriol that seems to have been present this year. A lot seems to have been quite negative which is a shame.
I dip in and out of the forums to be honest and they're an amazing place where encouragement and tips can always be found. The Paris marathon thread last year was fantastic for advice and help. So stick around, make yourself comfy and use the forums when you need them.
