Thanks MP, I have 5 or so days to recover so hopefully will have knocked the cold on the head by then - guess i will plan a run where i can add a 2 miles loop right at the finish which i can add on if feeling good - thanks again

Hi yes, did 21 miles but this weekend did 10 instead of 20 - i think its just some about the pyschology of not doing 2 20-plus runs that was worrying me

Hi everyone, just a quick post asking for some advice. I'm running a marathon for the first time in three weeks and have been following the runners world sub 4 plan. Up til now, all has been going smoothly and I completed every session (up to a longest run of 21 miles last weekend)

However, on the weekend just passed i hit a bit of a problem. I had a slight cold on friday but thought i was well enough to do my long (20 mile) run on saturday. However from pretty early on i didnt feel right and after about 7/8 miles my cold had got a lot worse and felt like i had no energy or strength in my legs. Therefore i decided to end the run after 10 miless (the end of the loop) and go home, where i rested for that day and the next.I went out this morning for 3 miles and felt a lot better so i was wonderng whether i should just put saturday down to experience and stick to the plan for the next three weeks (last long run of 18 miles this coming weekend and then taper) or try to do some more miles this week (pos a 20 mile run this weeked) to make up for it - my instinct is for the former....

Any suggestions please?

@andyc209 - yes i had garmin on and it said it was 13.1 - the mile markers were't always alligned with by watch, but by the end it all worked out - its here if you can access it - http://connect.garmin.com/activity/283265997 - although im sure the hill was bigger than the garmin says!

Dustin: thanks for that, i was hoping it would be like that down there - pretty clear in moorgate where i work so hoping i can have a clearish run to blackfriars and then do a few very easy laps to westmister and back - looking at the forecast its supposed to stay above freezing til 7ish so hopeful its shouldnt be too icy - thanks again

hi, guess i must have just missed the 9 mile marker then, i guess it was somewhere along the river bank? Didnt make a difference at all as you said. By the way, thanks so much for you pacing on Sunday bedders, really helped me run the race in the right way, and allowed me to knock 3 1/2 minutes off my pb. Yeah, i agree the course was really nice, just think the way they organized the finish could have been slightly different, I guess this will get better every year too

i was running with a pace-maker and i think we didnt see either the 8 or 9 mile markers either - think they might have been less obvious as were in field etc - thought the route ws pretty good (although the last three miles seem a bit bleak)., however, the organization, both in terms of info around beforehand (website etc) and the t-shirt/timing chip/baggage pick up queues at the end, was pretty bad - having to stand in about three queues for about an hour and a half after finishing is really not what you want...maybe they should have funneled us into separate queue rather than the free-for-all it felt like for t-shirts etc, and also split the baggage drop into 3/4 different locations by race number.. guess its still early days for them though

hey everyone, anyone know if there are going to be pacers at this? ANd if so if they'll be  finishing times or minutes/miles - trying to get under 1:57 (pb) so trying to work out the best plan for me in terms of using pacers, thanks
