Running a Marathon for the first time

Posted: Today at 08:31
If you can run a half then you are already ahead of 75% of those that are signed up for the London Marathon and 99% of them will finish.
Find a good plan that fits your current ability and you will be fine.

Not offended welshgje. I must admit that I didn't see how many times you have posted since the competition so my apologies there.

It just annoyed me that most of the contestants (not just the final 5) said that they would contribute to the forum, in an attempt to get votes, but were never seen again.

How was the Salisbury race? . It's local to me but have never done it as it clashes with other races.

Wow! That's a serious (expensive) bit of kit. Hope you get a decent amount of use out of it.

There were a few that turned up today and went against the advice.
One had attached his number with Sellotape.

There is a thread on here all about combining running and rowing, so there must be a few who do it.
For me, I don't have access to any rowing equipment and I quite enjoy running.

I couldn't imagine doing that race at peak fitness let alone with a cold.
Sometimes there are things out of our control that stop you from racing at your best.
Get yourself better and then look towards next year.

Looking at the website, it's all for charity.

If enough people don't sign up then they will have to reduce the entry fee.

Have just checked the details for the race i'm doing on Sunday and they "strongly advise runners not to wear headphones"

Not sure what that says about anyone that turns up and runs with them?

Good luck, I forgot the Winter 100 was this weekend.
Hope it's not too wet!

Is this a new phenomenon or have I missed something?
