KS: If you feel more comfortable and enjoy the race more with walk breaks,then its a no brainer,go enjoy the race.Has your training went well enough for you to target your goal time

Also in the ballot VLM,why can the not be like New York and Berlin and let you know in a few weeks rather than 5 -6 months.

Eggy/Tricky dicky:Im not made of the same stuff as you two tho,the fact eggy is running 18 miles so soon after PB at Paris says it all,I'm struggled to knock out 4 runs of 3-5 miles this week.If I opt for Dublin over Amsterdam I may just do final 20 mile run at 4 weeks out,have an easy week and race the half at 3 weeks out,then start a slightly easier than usual taper.

I'll just give the Glasgow event a miss if I do sign up for Amsterdam,my marathon goals are more important than my half or 10k.

The Dublin marathon is 3 weeks after the Glasgow half so that would give me an extra week recovery.It would mean my last 20 mile run would be 5 weeks before the marathon as I would like an easy week before the half,would running the final 20 miler so far out have any effect on my fitness come marathon day,just trying to work out my option here,thanks

Meadower:I don't really fancy the idea of just 'running' a half marathon,would racing the 10k still take too long to recover.

Joanna:I quite fancy Dublin,as you can tell by my username I follow the green side of Glasgow.Ive met a few Irish over the years and I've always had a blast.For that reason I think Dublin would be great.I like my kids to be with me and from a quick google search there doesn't seem to be a lot to keep them amused.A trip to Dublin without the kids would probably be the best idea,I've heard they like a good swally over there.

I'm swaying more towards Amsterdam than Dublin now.My wife doesn't really fancy Dublin.There does seem to be more for the kids to do and see in The Dam,tho the flight prices are double that of Dublin,currently sitting at ??100 per person,decisions decisions.

Only problem with Amsterdam is that the Glasgow half would fall in the taper period,two weeks before the marathon.Would I be able to give it my all in the half and still recover in time to be in top condition for Amsterdam?,bearing in mind Im not made of the stuff some on here are,I'm struggling to knock out 5 mile runs since my marathon 2 weeks ago.

Orapidrun:I love they schedules.I love the intervals and tempo runs with the midweek long run sandwiched in between.Im planning on following the 3:30 one.Im hoping to get my official half down to around my training half time which I think was around 1:36 in the past,then hopefully break 3:45 in Dublin,that's my dream anyway )

Eggy:It'll be good to get a catch up in Glasgow.I was hoping to try do a couple of the park runs you do,over the summer when the wee mans fitba stops for the holidays.

Eggyh:With the form you've been on the past 4-5 months Im sure you'll give Stockholm another solid attempt.

Orapidrun:I've always used the RW schedules.Although I've never hit my target time I've always felt fit enough to hit my target,my training runs suggest I should,but for 1 reason or another I've always missed out,tho last time I was only 10 minutes out.Is it these ones you are talking about

Joanna:Im swaying towards running Dublin.The flight prices are good at the moment.I can take the kids with us for the same price as Amsterdam flights for just my wife and I.Its also 3 weeks after the Glasgow half which gives me the green light to give it my all and not worry about it affecting my marathon preparation.
