AF ..... Aw nooooooooo. I hope you are okay to run come marathon day but if you are in a lot of pain then can you not defer your place until next year. You want to be able to enjoy the experience. Fingers crossed as to what your osteopath says on Tuesday but you don't want to make it worse after all. xxx sending hugs

Mathschick Sounds like you are enjoying your time off but as usual time flies away from us with so much to do.

Well I had my final track session last night before the London Marathon. 8 x 400m repeats and felt very good. I feel my training has went so well for this and feel strong that I will do well. Just got to stay injury free between now and the start line. Have a 15 miler planned for Saturday

Mathschick How was the concert?

AF Have you managed to get some more long runs done ?

I did my last long run this morning of 20 miles  Was a beautiful day for it. I have done 4 long runs over 20 miles in this training so am feeling good for London.

Just got work to go to this afternoon  In fact I am working all over this easter weekend. was nice to be out running this morning makes me feel I have actually did something LOL

Hope everyone is alright and has a lovely easter

Aw that's a shame Mathschick but best to err on the side of caution if you think it will cause further damage.

I was at track last night..did the coach take mercy on our tired legs....not one bit.... speed session consisting of 8 x 800m repeats with equal recovery. Managed each repeat between 3.42 - 3.50 so very happy with that. Planning a 22 miler tomorrow but weather forecast not looking good and its such a lovely day today and was tempted but best not to do 2 hard sessions back to back.

London is getting very close now...scaryily close but so excited too

Hello AF The final magazine instructions arrived in the post today Eeeeeek

I still wanna go sub 4 and am sure we both can..just don't expect me to talk all the way round LOL....

re- long runs - I am planning a 22 miler this weekend and maybe a 18-20 the following week..then down to 15  I think anyway..legs feel really tired this week as is other folks I have talked to who are doing London.

Hi Great running AF... you are speedier than me so don't mind if you want to run your own race at the marathon   I am not sure I will be able to keep pace with you and chat too as all my long runs have been done solo so not used to chatting whilst keeping up my marathon pace. Up to you what you decide I will not take offence but looking forward to it. However I had a nightmare of a long run on Monday...did it after work which I am not used to and 18 miles felt very hard compared to my 21 the week before  I guess we all get training runs like that and hope I don't feel like that on the BIG day.

AF..Have you decided if your travelling on the day or staying in a hotel the night before. Final instructions magazine due out soon

Mathschick I am pleased your feeling more positive about your running and hope you feel good to go to Manchester. I have heard its a great one to do.

Mathschick Glad your feeling better and hope you get your long run in  When is the Manchester Marathon??

I did 21 miles this morning ...a straight route right along the union canal from home to Linlithgow...Hubby came a picked me up to take me home..really enjoyed doing a one way route and hadn't been that far along the canal so was very enjoyable. Did it in around 3 hrs 20 so am happy with that
