Well I'm in London 2015, through the ballot system to my amazement!
I've had a recent boost in form. Not sure if it's coming off statins and going on a lower cholesterol diet, giving up bread, losing at least half a stone or a combination of all three?. I'm back running at about 8min miles up to 8-9 miles. Knee problem that I've had for nearly two years has improved, so just a bit uncomfortable now, not painful. I've started the long slow runs already once a week, so just hoping I can stay uninjured now? Anyone else doing London 2015?
Yeh, give it a go. I did the 2010 london marathon with tonsilitis against the advice of doctor/wife/most people! but I'd raised quite a lot on money so dosed myself up on antibiotics, pain killers, lemsip and sore throat sweets and finished in 4.05 so only about 15-20 mins worse than I was hoping for...... I did feel very poorly at the end though and wouldn't do it again on anything more than a light cold. I would say start slowly and see how it goes. Good luck.
