I ran a half marathon yesterday, and at mile 10 started to get a pain in my claf, i carried on running, but this morning the calf is still hurting. I'm worried that it's going to ruin my marathon training. I'm scheduled to run 18 miles this weekend. Any advice greatly received!!!

Hi Guys. I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year, and kept up the training! I seem to have lost the motivation to go out in this cold weather, but plan to do a run tomorrow no matter what. I've also ordered one of those Garmin thingys so hopefully that will get me motivated again.

Zoe, don't worry you're not alone. I've been feeling the same. But after four years of trying and finally getting a place, I'm determined to do it. Think of how you'll feel as you cross the line. I'm sure it will have all been worth it.

TopSec - I used to be a country bumpkin, but am now an urban dweller. I go back there as often as possible though.

Just had a gym session, and will probably aching for tomorrow's run judging by how I feel at the moment

I don't mind to sound negative. I'm actually really looking forward to it. I've been trying to get a place for the last 4 years, so I shall be making the most of it! I just got a bit phased by those super human types.

I have to wear orthotics all the time since I began to have achilles problems. They do seem to help, but I always get blisters in the arch of my foot. How do you stop it happening. I've been wearing them for well over a year, so it's not a breaking in problem. I've got a place for the FLM and am worried that I'm going to be in agony by the end,

Thanks for the reassurance. Glad to hear that not everybody is doing half marathon distances already! Can I expect to be feeling tired and stressed until the big day?

Hello, I'm new to the forum. I've got a place for the FLM, and got a bit worried when I've been hearing that people have been doing 10-12 mile runs already. What kind of distances are you guys doing? I've been running two 5 mile runs and a 6-7 miles a week. Do you reckon that's ok?

Adidas Flora London Half-Marathon

I did it last year and travelled from London. I caught the train to Milton Keynes, and then there was a coach from there to Silverstone. I had to book my place on the coach a couple of weeks before and pay up front. I don't remember it costing very much though. You should get details about it when you receive your race pack.

I'm definately in. According to their website, they're hoping to increase the numbers next year, but it depends on the council letting them shut the dual carriageway.
