North London Half Marathon

I signed up a few days before the original closing date and am 47XX, And if it is alphabetical I am always one of the higher number due to a surname beginning with W. So whether numbers have been allocated on the date received or alphabetically I'd guess around 5000 runners

Brighton Marathon 2015

Things seem to be picking up after struggling in the earlier part of the month. Ran a 10km on Sunday with a friend who is faster than me (but recovering from illness) and got round in 56 minutes despite a heavy workload last week and partying till 5 Saturday morning... 8 hilly miles after work last night, Averaging 10 1/2 minute miles at quite a low HR. Off work tomorrow and planning a minimum of 12 miles off road. Got my mojo back and feel to be nicely fit.

After running with a friend and seeing how hard it pushed me I'm thinking of finally joining a running club to see how that brings me on

I'd also echo other comments about ealing which I really enjoyed last year and has a proven track record

Oh. Right. I found the reviews. Onwards and upwards, eh?! 


which weren't attached to the event for this year??

It's amazing how that sometimes happens when an event gets slated...

I didn't really enjoy this event at all last year, it wasn't just the water situation, it was the fact that the much talked about section in the olympic park was primarily just doglegs on service roads. And several of the mile markers were considerably misplaced. Also the organisers twitter feed is full sof self-congratulatory self publicising crap but they never repond to questions/criticism

In fairness the atmosphere was fantastic and the people of hackney really supported it.

The same people are organising the North london half and if that gets decent reviews I may do this again, the course certainly has potential

Oh please don't tell me it is pouches and not bottles. I hated them in the 2 events I've used them!

Robert: TK Maxx seem to have some cheap and half decent foam rollers at the moment

I seem to be moving forward. Decent runs last weekend (7 1/2 and 6 miles), weights and treadmill Wednesday, and 7 miles last night. Plan is for around 12 miles tomorrow, if I do anything on Sunday it will just be an hour on the bike.

Entered a 10km in London next weekend which is basically nothing more than an excuse to go for lunch afterwards!

Glutton for punishment 2wheels - didn't you do Portsmouth last Feb? (as well as the mara in Dec)

J Swizzle - I agree - fair play they've carried entries over into 2015.

Yes hopefully portsmouth won;t be as windy this year. I like running while I'm down there, it means that I don't have to spend too much time with my g/f's family!

I have 3 halves in the build up. 2 in February (Portland and Portsmouth on consecutive weekends) and Hampton Court in march. Hampton Court is a little closer than I'd have liked (2 weeks) but I'm running it with a friend and it was the only event that we both liked the look of on a date that we can both do.Portland is too tough to treat as anything other than a LSR, Portsmouth will likely be ran at target marathon pace.

@toby3 - that's amazing progress by Snowmaiden!

Second run of the year today, much ,ore like what I expecting. a solid and comfortable 7.25 miles and felt far better than Wednesday. Having spent most of the day procrastinating glad I made the effort!

Vitality race series - what's the skinny?

Hackney claimed I'd run through the "iconic Olympic park" and technically I did. But it didn't live up to the pre-race hype. I'd have seen more from the Bow flyover
