Paris Marathon 2016

Could someone add me to the list please?

59954 -grey? 4:15 estimated time.

Thank you for all the great advice on here it much appreciated . I intend to slowly read through it over the next couple of weeks as I suspect it will answer most of the questions I have.

I see a lot of people are staying in hotels, has anyone any camping recommendations?

We are coming over in the camper van and will probably use a site near Versailles before going on to Disney, but I would prefer something a bit closer if possible as I am concerned about getting in on time using public transport on marathon day.

I'm going to book an appointment and  take my form into the doctor after payday. They would not tell me a cost for completing it until they have seen it but knowing my surgery it wont be cheap.

Finally paid just before eight. It may be a long process but its still not as long a wait as London to secure a place. Off to find  a training plan!

Anybody else queuing to get to the payment page? Been stuck there 25 minutes already wondered how much longer I should expect to wait.

Stung inside mouth by a bee (not dead yet)

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 16:30

Couple of years ago I was stung. I was 17 miles in to a 20 mile run and the bee managed to sting me inside the front of my mouth. It was sore and felt swollen. Luckily when I finished the run I just looked like an unfit person who had been for a run. Lesson learned- try to keep mouth closed when running!

Knee pain (had it for months). Suggestions.

Sorry to state the obvious but have you spoken to your GP?

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Stylish- So true, me time is important . I go back to the rest of life in a much better frame of mind if I get to run regularly. Which is why 1000 mile challenge appeals.

Muttley - Congratulations on the million metres! Do you still get a  a medal for that?

My OH did it a few years ago. Back in the days of our dinning room looking more like a gym (treadmill, bike, concept 2 )

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Usual reasons -work, study  and family commitments. Just got a treadmill so even if I cant leave the house I can still run. I'm determined to make time for regular running, aiming for a running routine  rather than building up distance.

As someone who is getting back into running this looks like a great challenge. For me the challenge would be ensure I kept up the mileage throughout the whole year at a steady rate rather than going crazy in the first couple of months then doing nothing.

treadmills - horizon t4000 or sole 63

Thanks Ghost rider .Useful advice.

Having tried a quick run on the 4000 it felt very sturdy and I liked its thick belt and easy to use control panel. I also tried a nordic track 18 but hated the way it paused between setting a speed and then it starting. Probably going to puchase the 4000  in the next couple of weeks so I can get it delivered over Christmas.
