Hi there, last year no one on the rw stall knew what I was talking about when I asked about leaving stuff, what do I need to do?

red pen 9 was full of fancy dresses and those expecting to walk, there is something very humbling about being overtaken by someone dressed as a rhino.

Once it starts, you will finish, it will just be a matter of how quickly. There is no way you will quit. There will be some tough moments, but everyone will have them.

good luck

Chris, what training plan is it that you are following that recommends doing 26m?  I haven't seen one that goes past 22.  This also seems very near your marathon date.

Last year I was 44m to cross the start, I may move to pen 8 this year with my (unrealistic) expected finish time.

I plan for 11mm so that would take me to 3pm if takes 45m to start. I will leave some goodies

I agree, many thanks. I am going for a normal 11m mile strategy, as originally planned. I will do one long run Thursday and then taper. 

i am starting to gain confidence back and realise I was stupid to push myself so hard. I like the four 10k runs as a way of trying to break it up mentally.


thank you

Exercising after a c sectionh

I have had 3 c-sections, please wait, remember they cut through your stomach muscle and although your skin may have healed, internally it will take longer.

Had you adopted the Run/Walk strategy throughout all your training?  If not, why did you decide to try it with about 3 weeks to go?


I have only tried it once (run walk on a 18m and it went well), I get very nervous /overwhelmed when the distance is over 17m and I thought this might be a method of coping. I did try a running club a couple of times, but with the group I was in it was endless stops (toilet/drinks) which I didn't think was giving me confidence.

How do you mentally break down the mileage?

26.2m seems overwhelming
