Berlin Marathon

Posted: Yesterday at 20:44

The tea is great, made black with honey and warm. I first had it in Berlin 6 years ago and now use it on my long runs. Took a gamble that first year drinking it on the day but as its natural it worked well for me.

Talkback: Hay Fever Q&A

For the last 2 years I have been eating honey at least 5 times a week, any cheap brand, and  I havent suffered the spring hayfever this year or last year.

Trying to get to 9.4 on bleep test

Treadmill, walk jog for 1 minute, then go up to 8.5 km/h. every minute increase speed by 0.5km/h. Keep this up till you can do 11 minutes and 9.4 will be ok. Do this once a week as well as other runs. You will soon notice the improvements


Any old shoe will do

Saw a tv programme about 6 months ago. About 12000 army recruits, half measured and given best shoe for gait etc and other half given any pair that fit correctly. Six months later the injuries assessed and there was no difference in number and nature of foot/leg injuries. They suggest fit is the most important factor so you could be right on getting budget shoes.

Dont forget, all your training is done now, do not do anything silly this week, just go for a few simple little runs,a long run now would ruin you for next Sunday, nerves and temptation will make you want to do a long run, dont give in. Good luck for the big day, you have loads of support from this site alone.

I suggest on the day, use every water station but dont drink all they give you, a few mouthfuls is fine, especially if it is a full bottle at each station.

Blood thirsty

Posted: 11/09/2012 at 12:39

I know the feeling, used to happen to me if I had eaten a sensible evening meal about 2 hrs prior to a run, You literally run out of steam and crave sweets.

I just leave it longer after the meal before I run or run before the meal.

Also my bloods are fine so no diabetes etc issues.

sorry cant be more help.

Well done, 28k is 17.5m, only 8.7 to go on the day, also there hopefully wont be any stiles or ploughed fields, both of those always slow me down.I also assume that you may have had hot weather today another strength sapper. I assume Leicester in October will be a little cooler. And with 3 weeks more training and 2 week taper you will steam around it. Cant wait to find out your time.
