Manchester Marathon 2016

Posted: 25/03/2016 at 22:30

Is anyone interested in the hotel I booked for this. Can't run now due to injury, am not fussed about the place but my hotel room at the Copthorne in Salford on Sat 9th is non refundable. So if anyone would like to take advantage of it please let me know.

Course if anyone wants my race number they can have that too for free.

I am totally over the fact that I cant run it.......


Amsterdam Marathon 2014

Interesting that others found it tough, I did too but couldnt really put my finger on why that was. I know I was very very thirsty during the race and lost a lot of time at the drinks stations so I knew I lwasnt going to make the time I wanted, maybe that affected me mentally, but I was a good 6-7 mins down on what | expected to be able to do. 

Enjoyed the race though, well organised, I never register the surroundings much anyway.

I arrived on Friday night and flew back Monday, If I do this again I am going to arrive Saturday and stay till Tuesday as I spent a lot of time on my feet on Sat which I shouldnt have done but didnt want to miss the chance to see the city on such a warm day

Vitamin b12

Hello, my husband has this but it's my understanding that he wont actually "recover" as such. I think its pretty near impossible not to get enough b12 in your diet since its in lots of things, I know in his case his body just cant convert it from food so he has injections instead and will always need them. Not sure if its the same for you though since you say you are on tablets so it might be different, maybe it depends on why you are deficient.

It doesn't really affect him at all, just when it gets close to when his top up injection is due he starts to feel really tired.

My marathon build up wont start for a few weeks, still focusing on 5k and 10k races over the summer. Have a half in the middle of August but am managing to maintain a run of about 15 miles once a week so I am not starting from too far back. Hoping for a sub 3.30 in Amsterdam.

A shout out for running alone

I always run alone too apart from races, in fact I hate it if anyone asks if I fancy some company because actually the answer is always no thanks, I dont! Sometimes though I do cave in just so people don't think I am a totally unsociable cow.

Panic - injured calf muscle, marathon 4 weeks away

Posted: 20/03/2014 at 10:53

I would suggest you see a physio as soon as you can and get it nipped in the bud. I had a really tight calf but it was actually tendinitis in the front of my leg which is why it hurt to flex. Often pain in one place is caused by an issue somewhere else, a physio can direct your rolling and icing more accurately. Once you know what you are dealing with rather than guessing you can rethink your plan and see where that leaves you

Last year they had she wees - a bit odd at first but no queueing so worth the weirdness of a load of bare bums. Dont even consider an ipod that would be such a waste

Yep i'm in for this one, like the look of a nice flat autumn marathon. Have entered and paid but given no thought to flights or accomodation yet, hope it doesnt prove too expensive!

Wow, first race and a marathon abroad, hats off to you Blakey, first race has to be somewhere and might as well be a marathon. Good luck with your training
