That is the GFS forecast for 12 April. Currently weather looks like settling down over Easter weekend and for the following week...with pleasant warm days and chilly nights.

Could all change by tomorrow though.

Looks cool that Menn. When I go next with my daughter I'll tell her I know someone who built this...sort of...

Cheers Menn (do you have my email address?). I have actually managed to copy my doctor's stamp onto a new unwritten certificate...so could try using that. Have a good trip. Which island? ...and what's this about building the new zoo?? (sorry, must have missed it if you've mentioned before).

P&D Spring Marathon Thread 2015

Hello...have still been debating about lighter trainer or not for Paris but today found my race report I posted from VLM last year...here's a few quotes:

15West wrote (see)
I decided I would risk the lighter adios boost trainers, this was a bit of a gamble as I hadn’t practised any long runs in them and only raced in them once over 10k.

About mile 18 my legs were hurting everywhere, especially my left calf, and I could feel some nice blisters forming on my feet.  


My legs were shattered though, especially my left calf. In the future I might stick with a more supportive trainer for a marathon, might get me a slower time, but I think my legs will thank me for it. I have some nasty doms going on also.


Think I'll stick with the Adrenalines.

Well done on all those that got out today in the lovely spring weather. Wind/rain supposed to continue throughout this week.

Where do you think is a good place to meet family after the marathon? Do they have a designated meet area like at VLM?

Blimey Heather. You'll remember runs like that whilst running in perfect conditions in Paris in a few weeks. Finger's crossed. Hitting MP is hard enough at the best of times, hitting it in gale force winds is pretty much impossible. So, don't worry about it.

I was out running in the wind and rain yesterday and actually got chafing on my balls. Still sore today. Thought you might want to know that.

I have just done a great job of transferring my doctor's stamp to an unsigned medical certificate....

It will be ok Stuchbury. 20 is just a number. 

Gels confiscated at airport?! Now, there's something to worry about. They have SIS Go ones at expo?!

And my med certificate of course. Jokeybhoy, thanks. I can pm you my postal address, I don't want to be any bother though. Also, hopefully tomorrow I'll know more as should get a reply from organisers and also be able to contact GP.

Doctor signed it, but noticed when got home they crossed out examination and wrote read notes. So - either I need a proper examination which could cost loads (can't be on NHS), or Paris marathon accept it as is - or I forge it. Bit of a farce and is causing unnecessary stress.
