Long shot I know, but if anyone hears even a murmur of a potential place in the marathon could you please let me know. I sorted out Spud this year when he had to pull out of the Rome marathon (rather than him losing his spot & waste money), and happy to do so for anyone else again. Thank you!
I'm a tiny bit worried about my long distance training ahead of next month's race.
My longest runs recently have been 18 and 21 miles over the last six weeks, and running 30+ miles a week, but I don't think I'll have time for another long run before the 23rd.
This weekend I'm away, then on the 8th I'm doing Milton Keynes half marathon, and the following weekend is only a week before the marathon! Do you think I'll be alright? Should I stick on a few more miles after MK?
I've done one marathon before (Paris last year) and definitely hit the wall and had to walk a bit (came in at 4hr15) but REALLY don't want the same to happen again. I'm much fitter now, just slightly worried that my long distance trainng hasn't been great.
Anyway, enough of all that, who's keen for a drink after the race?
If interested, I've also got a hotel booked (£70) in the town on Saturday night. It's the venue to collect race numbers. If not needed, I can simply cancel this, but thought I'd offer it to a potential runner before doing so.
