Dannirr, many congrats. Great report. How hard is it to get a spot for Tokyo?

Managed a 17 mile LSR this evening, despite it being 30 deg C. Was meant to go this morning, but at 4am I had a severe case of alarm-ignorism, so it had to wait till this evening! All good, happy legs and the nice lady at the petrol station even refilled my water bottle!

I did Dopey this year! It was really wonderful and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's not a PB course, but to be honest if you went to Disney looking for a PB then you've really missed the whole point! It's about the experience, having your photo taken with Mickey at the halfway point, running through the castle in the dark, spotting the craziest costume and that's before we even mention earning six of the most spectacular medals at the end.  

Disney's organisation is superb and runners are very well treated. We stayed at a disney resort and it was well worth it for the convenience, buses to the start etc. book quickly though, they sell out quickly for that weekend.

Emmy, major Congrats!! You are just amazing!

Tinks/ TD. Congrats on impending nuptials, I must have missed the announcement. Apologies for lateness. Lovely news now that I've caught up. 

List fairy, please could you add me for VMLM? Thank you. 

Orbutt, hope your three weeks passes really quickly and you get the best result. 

Hello to all. Just did 13 miles in 30 deg C ( by the time I finished).  Phew!! I'm having to run slowly, even for me, hate to think how slow I will be in London now!

Thighs, not calves.  Calves are fine. Thighs are whinging like a teenager with no internet access.

Thanks TD. Wise words. (I hope!!)

so, on Monday I had this great idea to tackle one of those vile fitness DVDs, thinking it would be good cross training, strengthen my core, all that stuff. I sweated my butt off (possibly literally if I believe the blurb on said dvd box!). Worked really hard. 

Now it 's Wednesday and I'm struggling to walk. My poor calves! A few squats too many I think. Lesson learnt. Don't start something new that close to a marathon. Oh dear. One day I will think sensibly...

Just one more thing... Do they have toilets at London? Do I have to find a red bus to squat behind?

Thanks Tricky, it's very short notice. with me being such a beginner I'm struggling a bit with how to get ready in time but I just couldnt turn down the opportunity. Hope I can pull it together In time.
