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

SJ. Doing Edin (again!) and Loch Ness. Keeping it all local-ish. Been doing slightly bigger mileage but nothing faster than MP. Bit of a different approach to see what happens 

SG. Hetlo to you! The mega dog is fine ta though our poor old geriatric one is no longer with us. How are you feeling for the sub3 ??

will you be sporting wings and wand Martin??

Thought I'd pop by briefly to wish everyone all the best for Sunday

Have been lurking occasionally and good to see a fair few familiar names and some new ones


Having had a poor running year last year have managed to pull things together a bit and planning a spring and autumn marathon myself

Hope you all smash it

I'll be at Fleetwood tomorrow aswell Carrot. Forecast doesn't look too bad if we can believe it. Looks like the evil wind might stay away and not too hot or humid

Hope you have a good run

Thanks for all the comments re HM racing guys. So many different ways to approach it a chap is in danger of getting crippled by times and paces. I strongly recall running my first few races basically just as fast as I could. A lot to be said  that but when a "key" target is looming it is hard to ignore the numbers

i'll certainly endeavour to give it the full nads for once since I feel it's a long time since I can truly say I did that

Did a few test miles @ HMP tonight (6.06) and they flt like far too much hard work. Am getting better at putting the poor sessions behind me so not going to dwell on it.

welcome to YIK. Are you ditching the pointy helmet and wet suit for a few months then? Like says 1.30 should be enough but if you started getting a good chunk of 50+ or so mile weeks with a few 20 LSRs your tri background should help A lot and you might convert better
