Brighton Marathon 2015

Posted: Yesterday at 15:16

So I got round Portsmouth at the weekend in 5hr 5. Training was best described as relaxed. The last 2 weekends I'd been out drinking for my g/f's birthday and there were as many weekends in November spent clubbing as there were running!

Considering before yesterday my longest ever run was 15 miles I'm hoping that a more committed training plan will see a massive chunk come off that in April

Phil I saw that and assume that the half will be the same (or very similar) route to the February one. Can't help but think that the front runners in the marathon will be mixed in with pretty much anyone taking more than 2 hours for the half.

My G/f overheard that the collapsed runner had had a heart attack but no idea how true it is. I've read on FB that they are ok

5hr 5 for me. Seems that all those people who say that running more than 15 miles is essential and that clubbing all night doesn't constitute cross training maybe on to something!

But I'm a happy man, first time I've started a marathon and far from committed preperation so that'll do for me.

Oh yes - there is definitely alcohol!

Been ill for much of the last week, seems to have shifted. Horrendously under-prepared. Will plod out at 11 1/2 minute mile pace and see what happens

The 'official' one is organised by Runthrough who have been organising events in London for some years though I think this is their biggest promotion to date. =

I am pretty sure that the 'original' was a short course last year but not 100%
