Hello all,,, quick post... Marathon fitness takes years to build up, and it also takes weeks to recover from your race paced marathon you did on Sunday. Rachel, Mk is too soon unless you are prepared to take it significantly slower than Sunday.
nicole. Manchester was perfect. After the first couple of miles, really nowhere near as congested as London. I think Paris is worse. No idea about Edinburgh. It's good to look for marathons that aren't the big city races as these are more full of people who didn't put in the training, therefore you have to face things like people stoppoing to walk in mile 1!
pipski, I saw those t-shirts and wanted to buy one but thought it might be bad luck as I don't have any children yet.
i will try to stick around on here as much as I can the next few weeks for those doing MK ans Edinburgh, if u have any questions, but I do have my wedding very soon, so as you can imagine, am a bit consumed with getting that sorted x
