While you're injured I'd drop any thoughts of going for a time. Get back running injury free, see how your training goes after that and base a time goal off your training closer to the race.

As you say there are plenty other races to go for a specific time.

Sarah - The the medals tend to use the same design, but the marathon medal is larger.

RunBaz - Welcome to the forum.

RR - I'm sure the stamina will return quickly. I always feel the first few long runs after a bit of a break always seem really tough, but then you start to get back into the way of it.

John here is the link.

Registration reopens on September 8th. It's not a ballot. It's first come first served, but the price increases depending on the number of places sold. Get in early for the cheapest entry.

I'd recommend going to see a physio. It sounds strange that the pain disappears once you get running. The fact rollering and icing helps makes it sound like a muscular issue. If walking causes pain I certainly wouldn't advise running.

A lot of us have don the run through an injury thing and it's never a good idea. It's better to hit the start line a bit under-trained and injury free, than fully trained but injured.

I'm thinking about Amsterdam. I'll decide at the end of the month.

My main concern was that the triathlon training would wreck my running, which has been the case in the past, and I didn't want to enter when not running well. My run in Dundee has shown that so far the triathlon training hasn't affected my running. I managed a slow 16.5 mile run back from work last night, so I if I do it I at least have some stamina base to build from.

Lloyd - Thanks, I've had an amazing year for setting PBs. I'd set PBs over shorter distances in the last couple of years, but I'd not been near my half or marathon times for a while, so it's a great feeling to have smashed them both this year. I'm sure if you put your mind to it you'll find four seconds and more.

orapidrun - I'm in awe of you running that 100k. I can't contemplate that. Looking forward to catching up with you in Amsterdam.

RS - Really sorry to hear you're having to pull out of those events. Hope the rehab pays off soon.
