Hi all, I'm feeling *slightly* better and I did sleep quite well last night. I'm still not sure if I'm going to be able to do the marathon though, and I don't want to do it and get a crap time due to being unwell/wheezy. I don't see the point in that and it would probably do me more harm than good anyway. I've found out that I can drop down to the Half or 10K when I register at the expo, so I may consider doing that and just jog around one of those if I feel that I can, so I can get a bit of the atmosphere. Or I may just spectate. I feel okay, but it's my chest which is a bit wheezy. I've done all I can to keep warm, eat well etc but it hasn't shifted yet.
Shades, yes I'll have to have a look at another one. Dartmoor Vale is the obvious one on 25th Oct as it's local, but not a quick course. Also, I had kind of decided I wouldn't be doing any running in Budapest the week after the marathon so if it will then be 3 weeks with little or no running at all, which isn't ideal. It's a shame as I was running well with my recent Half time, but this cold has knocked me back a bit. Very frustrating, but such is life!
I've decided to cancel my Sky subscription to a) save the cash and b) I wasn't using it much anyway, and it's such a time waster. There is a recording of Question Time on the Sky box that Claire and I were in the audience for and we were in shot quite a lot, so I'm trying to get it off there before I lose it at the end of October. I had a couple of failed attempts yesterday. I think I'm going to have to call Sky as I have read that they may have to enable something on the box to allow me to get the program off onto a DVD.
I've seen on Facebook that the London Marathon mags are being delivered locally today.....
