hi guys, I entered this ages ago planning to use it to kick on from a spring mass marathon and knock out a pb, but have been plagued by injuries pretty much since last summer. It was touch and go I'd make it, but have taken the plunge, despite very interrupted training (and not much of it!). But it could work in my favour, with no great ambitions - I'm sure I overtrained for London last year when I peaked too soon, but won't have that excuse next weekend! The plan is to take it easy, control my pace (something I'm notoriously bad at!) and ease round in my own good time. Besides, with lots of short laps, I can always bale out
This will be marathon number 9 for me - sorely tempted to call it quits at 10, so I'm looking at a training run to start the build up to an autumn run....
A nice bit of rain would suit me - once your wet you can't get wetter! And LTS, can you taper if you never really got going in the first place?! I'm planning a 10 mile pacing run over this weekend, then nice and steady next week!
