Dehydration and headaches

Start first thing in morning with large glass of water( 1 pint/ 1/2 litre) then continually take on board water all day in small regular amounts and if you feel thirsty it is far too late so you should have had more by then. 2 litres a minimum and then dont include tea cofffee or any other drinks they are just bonuses.

I'm in, 2nd time, hot tea, well warm with honey was lovely at the drinks stations, fruit as well.

Stayed in outskirts and got bus and train in, typical german organisation, brilliant.

eat a jelly baby at each drink station, sometimes they do need washing down.

GPS watches or apps on your phone?

On the london marathon my Garmin 205 had me finishing on Birdcage walk, Docklands had confused it, however cardio trainer on my htc desire also regularly adds 10% to my distance wherever i run, but as someone said it plays music and talks to me which helps.

Whatever training you do will not be enough, afterwards you could have always done it faster/ more easily if you had done the extra long run............forget that just enjoy the day and be grateful that you are one of the few that have the ability to do 26 miles, you have earned that pride

Swim or run day before

very gentle splash in a pool sounds good for me, relaxing and not using any of you legs reserves.

Help HM Training

with 2 weeks to go i would do a number of 2 or 3 mile runs very relaxed, have 3 days rest prior to the big day and try and enjoy your first HM, you will of course be certain to run a PB.

Rejected Again - So what one should I opt for ?

Just come back from Berlin, in my opinion better than London, although i have also just been turned down by the ballot.

Did Manchester in 2002 and that was interesting but that was a different route. 

So many to choose from in UK, might also give MK a try.

Berlin registration starts in Oct with early entrants getting in cheaper so keep searching

Cardiosport is good, updates can be set to various times/distances, i have mine at .2 mile. GPS may not be the most acccurate but my Garmin managed to show me completing a marathon when i was 800m from the finish line.

automatically plays music if you want, can upload your map and times to facebook and twitter.
