Great stuff Shedboy. Sounds like an eventful race, you should be proud.
Splits don't show these stops and injured calf really, just a a slight slow down so a race report would be good to say what happened.

Any news on Susan?

Good luck to Susan, hope she will pop in with some of her famous wisdom. Someone wish her well (Howard?). Will be a wonderful day I'm sure.

Shedboy, sounds lovely. I've run with a photo a few times and it really does lift you. Just remember to stick to the plan, no mad on the day, "Heyyy.. I feel fine, I'm running all of this..". Aim is to finish, not break the world record.

Good luck everyone.

And drink well. 2-3 litres of water from Thursday with fruit juice or cordial or electrolyte. Especially if it's looking like a hot Sunday for VLM.

Sky blue, the 100 marathon club has a simple rule.
Any race 26.2 miles or bigger counts as one - as long as there is a finish line and results.

So Comrades, ring of fire, Marathon de Sables all count as just one... Lots of famous multi day races only count as one.

Compression tights for after. Hold the big muscles in.

Absolutely nailed strength session this morning.. Some big lifting then 7 miles tonight. Feeling good.

So shedboy has London who else?

As for the machine comments, not really...push your body a little, it learns to take the load. JCG you know this from iron lady training!

I wear compression socks also, usually sleeves. Really work.

It's a sign!

I'm currently calculating run walk ratios for my Comrades first 26 miles and half way point Sheddie. Really does work.. Martin will back me up on this.

DanniR I could almost hear the banjos. Hopefully no squealing pigs. What do you do as treadmill workout? (And others on here same question?)

John. Hope the back sorts out. My PT last week did some assessments, aced the legs tests but low score on overhead squats and flexibility in shoulders. In his words, an injury waiting to happen.

Hello Patricia! If you can look past the cat, we finished together last year. Actually more photos to send you.

Not too shabby last night, 12 hills in 8 miles after marathon the day before. Legs not too bad.

Lowrez, baggage and finish area this year was at old Trafford cricket ground not football. No trucks as normally used but the storage warehouse at the cricket ground.

Should've been big enough if they'd worked out how many runners... But they must've run out of fingers.
No marshalling of people dropping bags off, just a big wide table with 5-10 taking them. So 8:00-8:30 mayhem with hundreds waiting to drop their bag. With 0.5-0.75m to start line.

When runners returned.. Marshals had tried to sort the extra bags outside. Cue lost bags, tags falling off and even bags open. Possibly some thefts even, all whilst 12000 plus runners queued up at a couple of tables to try get their bags.

Massive fail. They have offered a discount for next year... If they get any entries!
