Anyone recommend any ladies Capri pants/tights that don't fall down when I run?

Mower, congrats on your sub 4 - loved reading your report, felt I was there with you!

Keith, has the cold gone? New car sounds posh....I've got MX5

KK, congrats on your huge Parkrun PB, great running. I recall climbing Cadair as a teenager....before Hawks/ jets were invented I think!

Big G, glad Brecon went well, and sounds like you're making good progress with the  running.

MF, glad the car's mended, hope Charlie has been forgiven re choc!!! When's your next mara?

SK, masses of luck for Sunday...I've never run the day before a race, feel I need to be as fresh as poss, but everyones different.

Shades, so glad you enjoyed your race, sounds like you were really pleased with your pacing, and love the bling!

Ive not run for 10days...partly to give body plenty of recovery time, but also I've been up and down to my mums in Lpool - still no moving date, but hoping it'll be in next couple of weeks. So, went for gentle 2.5m trot today.....right knee managed 1.5m, then had to run/walk the last mile....gutted to say the least Hoping it'll help if I do some strength/ Pilates type work over the next few weeks with some little runs every now and then to see how it is.....or dyou reckon it'd help to rest it more?? Big G, I'm in awe of your patience...I haven't got any

(Have got photo ready to post but it's too still work in progress!)

Hope Emmys ok

Mowzer  - great running in nasty winds, well done! I've always worn Asics too, but last couple pairs had to go up a size....thought it was an age thing

MF - sounds like your daughter is doing her own marathon on that trip, hope she survives! How about balance a beanbag on your head race (French equiv?) or 3 legged race, but might need to fill in risk assessment! Hope hay fever season is a light touch this year.

Big G enjoy Brecon Beacons, weather looks good. My sons took me up pen y fan last summer and produced champagne picnic on the top to celebrate my 60th, complete with tablecloth, banner, balloons, cake/ some great comments from other ramblers!

Shades glad your back is ok...are you racing this weekend? My injury was fine during whole of mara, but was going was the knee that become a prob for last few miles....seems ok now but won't run til next week so it gets good rest. 

Sadly have utterly failed with photo upload, despite Big Gs help - but have not given up........yet

MF so sorry you didnt get to Cheverny, must be really disappointed .                 Hope the car and hay fever can be conquered in time for Royan!

SK don't know anything about bursitis, but if it doesn't hurt that must be good, but it's a worry...guess keep a close eye on it - have you covered it?

Big G great that you've a few runs done....being really sensible and stretching is true dedication, I'm impressed!!

S32 congrats on a great Yorkshire half....hills up there are tough!

Shades such bad timing for upset tummy, think Emmy had funny tummy too in Paris but guess she'll come on shortly and you can compare notes 

Got back yesterday from fab few days in hot (very hot) Paris sunshine with my 2 boys/partners. As for the run, the aim was to finish with body in one piece and with a smile - which I did in 5:11- waaay off the initial plan of several months ago, but this marathon lark is so unpredictable, as is the weather,  and the body, and sometimes you just have to reassess what it's all about....being in the moment and enjoying the running!

(I'm trying very hard to upload a photo but failing to google how it's done)

SK/MF - am all packed ready for journey tomorrow, and yes have ditched the crazy idea of taking short shorts....thank you for bringing me to my senses! 

MF really really hope you get a car sorted in time and don't have to resort to SKs wonderful idea of arriving by horse 

Shades, enjoy's hoping the mist/ cloud lifts to give you those glorious views, and more importantly, your back is ok!

Big G great that youve got back to a club run...hope it was nice 'n easy with a good natter.

SK that's some mileage for a taper week1 ...take care, it's the exact moment I got my groin/adductor niggle  Have got the eating sorted I think, but as to what to wear...!!! Really want to put on the summer short shorts, but need to test them out first for chafing since its a year since last worn and think the thigh wobble might have increased a bit.    BUT also the groin niggle hasn't gone, so need to rest as much as poss - but today is the last chance for a pootle.....decisions, decisions.   And as to pace...well, who knows what the groin will be doing by18m/20m???? Thought of DNF doesn't bare thinking about....hoping the thought of magnificent bling will get me to the end. Any advice from you lovely Shadies gratefully received!
