Great running SJ and KR and JF2

Celebrate your PBs with pride fellas

enjoyed the run (until mike 24) and great course and conditions albeit very crowded early on

I chugged out 3.02 which I guess wasn't bad considering I totally lost 2 or 3 weeks of training a month ago on antibiotics for my man flu. Had hoped I could rely on a good block of training prior to that and just ignore it but lost about 3 or 4 mins in two very ugly last miles - just goes to show the marathon will find you out. 4 weeks ago I'd thought I would have hopefully been on for PB myself today but onward and upward And bring on Loch Ness in October - think I prefer the smaller races!

we must have all been within yards of each other !! Spooky

Don't think I could bear to caffeine deplete. Have def learned to not overstuff the day before though following a disastrous muffin, lucozade and bagel binge the day before VLM a few years ago. I recall standing at the start feeling distinctly blobular

Abbers - it's manchester I'm doing. I'd love a PB but will see how the early miles go. Marathon number thirteen for me I think 

so are you just on normal diet for the 2 or 3 days pre race BB? I wonder how long it takes for the glycogen to be used up assuming you're not running much....

think I've got mild PMT too

Can't say I'll be beeting thanks all the same. Gives me the boak as they say up here

2.5x would be nice But had a slight wobble with man flu a month ago and lost ten days training. We shall see

feeling a bit blobby and over carb'd just now so not going to stuff too much fri and sat

Gul - p and d very good this time around I thought. Did the 12 week version prior to Loch Ness last oct

KR - number is 10335

Long time no post.

Hope everything ticking along nicely for everyobody

After the 18/70 P and D schedule I'll be in Manc on Sunday at the start line gently cacking myself as usual. Maybe see you there KR/SJ

Heart Murmur

Cardiology opinion and maybe echo would allay all your concerns I'm sure. Good luck! Would probably be a bit of a wait on NHS but could prob see someone locally in a week or two if you're happy to pay....

Heart Murmur

ECG gives good info on electrical activity in the heart particularly in respect of pattern of electricity passing through the heart muscle,rhythm and - to some extent - structure of the chambers of the heart 

You've probably just got an innocent flow murmur and are absolutely fine to run but you can only really comment on the flow of blood across valves ( ie exclude serious causes of murmur) with an echo

Did the doc say what phase of heart sounds he heard the murmur during?

Might I suggest three contenders that all make my toes curl :-


Don't say your easy baby - you're about as easy as a nuclear war


Rhythm is a dancer - serious as cancer


Like kilimanjaro rises like a leopress above the ser-en-geteee

total shockers.....

Haven't posted at all much recently but have been stalking on and off - thought I had to put finger to keyboard to congratulate Jools on that startling time. MONSTER !!

Once you've returned to planet earth - would be fascinated to hear from you what you think has made the biggest contribution to your awesome progress. Beyond lots of years of hard work and dedication that is...

first half marathon lots of people passing out, is that normal??

Difficult to compare the data I suspect for arrests in these two distinct populations. I'd have thought the couch potato who has a typical VF arrest in an already compromised floppy heart ( and for whom the most critical thing that is going to save them is an early DC shock) is very different to an "athlete" who maybe has a different type of arrhythmia leading to arrest ( for whom the likelihood of survival is pretty slim unfortunately since shock prob won't work)

the good news is most of these collapses during races are simple faints and there's no issue of any heart problem. Of course there will be exceptions like the poor chap at Ealing

Just entered this one and sorted hotel. Looking forward to some more self flagellation in  those last few miles already! Marathon number eleven for me 

Sounds like it could be flat and fast??? What's the story with the water pouch thingies?

need to recover from Loch Ness yesterday then prob start to try to pull my finger out just before the Christmas shenanigans begin
