London marathon - is it possible to cheat ?

I've seen a 20 stone bloke apparently run sub 40 mins for the first. 10k and then fade away to a 7 hour marathon. My guess is he waited in the crowd and paid a fast runner to give him a flying start.

Most of the course has no barriers at all.

Breathing at 400m

400m isn't that high - you won't notice any difference at all.
Apart from the place looking gorgeous and having a faint scent of chocolate.

Any advice views and help.

Anything is possible.

You're probably looking at doubling your mileage though, and you'll need to ramp it up steadily to get used to it. If you start soon then you'll have time to adapt to the extra stress.

I need a little assistance please!

Glad to have you back on your feet - even if you are wobbly !

Post Marathon after VLM on Sunday

Oh that's an excellent time - all things considered ! And I think every marathon helps you on the next one.

I was expecting something like a 4 hour myself - marathons havent been a priority for me this year - I've been training for duathlons - and short ones at that.

So my longest run was a half in Feb, and my next longest was about 9 miles the week before London... I was expecting my legs to fall off and have to walk the embankment - so I took it very easy most of the way - I know if I'd have raced it would have ended badly. But at 20m I was still feeling fine - so I thought - sod it - only a 10k to go - lets race that bit. And I did. Finished in 3.29 and feel really good. I'm a bit baffled as I was so so so unprepared - but I guess I'd run 5 marathon distance or more last year - so that fitness must hang around a bit.

Enjoy your class !

How did you get on Pipski ?

I ran last night - but my legs do feel exceptionally good. Sometimes I've not been able to run for a week. Cycling is an easier exercise to get back into. I've taught spin the next morning after a marathon a few times - I think it helps.
