I also missed the gel station. I didnt see it until too late, I managed to cut across people to get to it, but the lady passed someone else a gel and none in her hand so i had to run passed. I even put my hand out for one, but no.......luckily i had my own, but i was hoping for their tangy taste to freshen my mouth a little as my SIS were not going down to easy at this point.

RRR, we should meet up one night for a run, although i may be able to keep up with you. If not you are mainly likely to see on Shaftsbury avenue (Wed/Fri/Sun).

I am currently getting ready for the manchester 10km. I know i can do 52:30 if i work hard on race day. This would be a PB by some 2 minutes or so. It would give me a lift towards my target of sub 50 this year.

I see we can purchase our Manchester Marathon 2016 places already. 

OH GOD, I SAID I WOULD NEVER DO ANOTHER..........seems like I lied.

I achieved my goal of getting round in under 5hours (4:57:09), now i have set my goal at under 4:30.

I did 8km today and my groin injury from the marathon reoccurred at 5km so I stopped. But i felt good. Not good enough to do a marathon though.

Felt fine today doing 8km, and at 4.5km i was going well and then i felt my groin hurt again. So I stoppped and hobbled home. It has eased off a little now, but i need to keep a check on it. I know it will repair soon enough though, it is not worrying me.

Heart rate monitor sorted. It is fine now.

Manchester 10km - 10th May 2015 (eek)

Great North Run - 13th September 2015

Manchester Marathon - April 2016

I can include more events as needed, such as some halfs and 10kms but i will only do the one Marathon, otherwise i will be out of the house too much.

My legs are ok, the main issue is the front of the right shin, which is tender. It cramped up during the marathon but i ran through it. It cramped up last night. Needs stretching I think. I have had this issue before you may recall.
