I'm afraid I didn't see you yesterday - I couldn't remember where to look ... I remember passing the mud chute station, but, well, it was so busy and I was really tired...

... thanks for your time, in any case!

For future reference, I was right at the back of pen 7 and crossed the line in 10 minutes

I'm in blue pen 7 too - any idea how long it'll take to cross the start line from there?

Have Wet Wipes for the end, as it'll probably be a while before you can find somewhere to wash.

and clean socks for after, too (I'm not sure I'd feel safe in flip flops, so I take old comfy trainers instead), and something warm - an emergency blanket (if you get one) isn't as nice as a soft jumper or hoodie

... and something really nice to eat (Snickers for me) and perhaps a recovery shake.

I've twice had a phantom injury prior to a big race - I ended up at a physio one time and a podiatrist the other - neither could find anything wrong, and there were no symptoms on the day (or afterwards) ... ??

I'm not an expert, nor am I belittling your pain - the day before the Great North two years ago I was in agony just walking around Newcastle ... but totally fine come race day ... keeping my fingers crossed for you  

Last Ditch Attempt to get fit for London Marathon

Posted: 02/04/2014 at 17:51

I did Blackpool mara after inadequate training due to an ankle injury (it was my third marathon) running at least 1:30 min/miles slower than previous marathons, and walking every water station - I went very slowly indeed, and was not in a hurry to start walking after the water stations.

This actually meant that I had no pressure from any kind of time plan, had time and space to chat to folk along the way and surprisingly found me at mile 21 with quite a bit of energy left, and thus I overtook loads of people on the last few miles, and finished with running faster than my previous two marathons.

But absolutely no long runs between now and then, Scottles - none AT ALL!!

Forum name: Britrisky
Real name: Ann

Expected arrival at Mudchute: Sometime around 12.40-12.50, I reckon ... not sure how long it'll take to cross start line, guessing around 10-20 min?

Description of your race gear - See below, but in shorts and no sleeves, hopefully

Special needs that you will leave at Expo: None. Just a big "c'mon, dig deep - get it done', or words to that effect will do nicely, please!!
