Red hair, which half are you doing?  I'm panicking about Hanover marathon on Sunday.  I'll be fine, I just worry about silly things, like the train being late, or me not finding the bag drop! 

2014 in 2014???

470 km done, 1544 to go, which was the year rats first appeared in North America.

I have been tapering as have a marathon on Sunday.  Aiming for 3:50, but a pb would be nice (under 3:59:57, I wanted under 4 hours that time!).

With 251 days to go, 1544 is still approximately 6 km a day (and the marathon will kill a week in one go).  Want to get it down to 5 km a day if it's at all possible, to give me some breathing room at the end.

OH it's not going to be embarrassing. You'll be great.  If they're trying to encourage slower runners, then you should be proud that you're taking up the challenge.  Have fun

Morning all

What: guess
Why: getting bored now, but also nerves are increasing hugely.  Think it's because I'm going to be alone from tonight until after the race, which means I have no one to calm me down!
Last hard: running through the supermarket yesterday to get the milk (yes that's the hardest running I've done for a while!)
Lyrics: nope

Dibs: From SA there's only a 2 hour time difference, so no jet lag.  What matters is whether you sleep on the plane.  I have flown back on a Sunday night before, overnight, and gone straight to work on the Monday morning.  It hurts, but it's nowhere near as bad as going to Oz for either jet lag or sleep deprivation!  Please don't go running around the area on your own though, until you're sure it's safe (I know I've already told you this, but just to make sure!)!  There are lots of cyclists around too, but again be careful as the motorists are crazy.   I can suggest some good cycle routes for you if you like (Let me know and I'll pm them to you).  

Sounds like a good race RFJ, well done.

Hello again RHG, stick around

25C predicted here today.  Will potter in the garden after work.

What: nothing
Why: it's time for 4 days of nothingness (apart from maybe some pottering in the garden tomorrow)
Last hard: working out how to pick up my race number and get to the race on time.  Will have to make 2 trips to Hannover, either around €100 with the train or a 2.5 hour return car trip on Friday evening, followed by a train journey or car journey (not yet decided) Sunday morning.
Lyrics: not sure

Happy St George's Day.

Are you going to do it OH?

LMH when is your next race, I have a feeling it's soon.

Have a good day all.

Last hard: starting to panic about Sunday
Last rest: Sunday
Lyrics: nope
