Congratz on the runs all.

I'm starting to feel better at last!!! Still have a very rattly cough and some congestion but the temperature seems to have gone now at least. On the road to recovery.

Oh and i did my back in trying to drag my motorbike yesterday

Chester Marathon 2014

Hi Ashley - wow your times are where i want to be eventually, and for the same reasons (GFA London and Boston qualification too). I don't know if it will ever happen but it will be fun trying right?

I have a 4:00:45 for marathon this year. Last year I managed a 1:45:xx in half marathon - this year's half marathons were about 10 mins slower but they were earlier on in the season. 

I've been suffering from a cold and cough since Brighton so haven't run at all. Hopefully it will be over soon and i can start to run again. I know what you mean about training over summer rather than winter. I can't WAIT! That is going to be fun. 

I know Chester is just a step in my journey so to be honest my world will not fall apart if I don't make the target. However, Im going to give it my all. Actually 3:45 is my conservative target and i am confident of hitting it. I think I have a 3:40 in me - maybe even faster, but it would be silly to aim for something faster at this time. I can always re-evaluate mid summer anyway.

For me Chester is the first in several actually. I'm hoping to do an Ultra in Feb followed by Paris next April. I am going to enter the ballot for Berlin for September 2015 - if i don't get it i will either do Bournemouth or Chester again.

Would be great if us folks from Chester share progress in this thread. We all have the same goal race after all

SK brilliant suggestion! They do go back to school on the Wednesday after the marathon but it would still give us a couple of days for Euro Disney! Nice! I am going to look in to that. 

Shades - i am still coughing a lot in the evenings and mornings with the odd sneeze thrown in. It's really doing my head in. If I had known it was going to go on for this long i would have gone to the dr and got on to antibiotics but it doesn't seem like a good idea to do that now if it is going to be over in the next week or so anyway (i hope).  What makes it worse is that all the sunny weather has gone while i was most ill and now it's raining again. Bah. Really i don't care about the weather though - i just want to run  

My list of signed up for races is quite scary when you look at them all lined up like that lol. I'm going to go back to focussing on just the next one

Big G hope you get well soon.

Scream it's the title of the thread. If you don't like it why are you even still here? Who is forcing you to take part in this thread?

I am not convinced a running club is a worthwhile way forward for Samir since on the whole they don't provide the kind of coaching he is looking for. He does not seem to be looking for the comaraderie, social aspects and team spirit that a running club can provide so what would he get out of it?

If I beleifed i could be in Team GB I would make whatever sacrifices were necessary and pay for a running coach. I wish Samir was gonner do that because I would love him to wipe the smile off the face of the playa haters but I can't see it happening.
