London marathon app

Posted: Yesterday at 18:44

I have registered.

What is the message that is posted? Is it really corny?

I hope that I will want my times posted, ie get a PB. It is possible that I run into disaster, though.

Hi Stylish. Hope the trip goes well, and you return refreshed and ready for the marathon.

Not a great week last week for training. But got one last 20 miler this week, then taper.

Any chance of it entries being sold out?

I was going to decide after my marathon. I'm not sure I have the stamina for 30 miles.

Jeremy Clarkson is sacked!

I am not really interested in cars. But have watched Top Gear a few times and have been amused. Clarkson seemed a very good presenter. I thought that if the Beeb sacked him, the other channels would snap him up.

But if it is true that the producer ended up in A&E, maybe not!

I agree that Clarkson acts a lot as if he was god's gift and irreplaceable. Which is like someone else, who is not to be mentioned.

I have a half marathon next Sunday. So an easier week. Today was my 20.

Hi Guys

Another completed training week. BUT I felt really tired and achy all along the LSR today.

I'm not sure if I need some TLC, or a big kick up the butt.

How's things with everyone else?

Probably the majority of police work hard at their job and serve society as best they can do so.

Sometimes the hierarchy and regulations seriously let people down, and deny them justice and fairness. Sometimes the individual behaves in a discriminatory manner. Such is life.

I did my 18 miler on Friday, a good day to run. But I was slower than the plan says to be (slower than 3 hrs 15) as I walked a bit towards the end.

I thought a bit of speed work might help me go a bit faster. But I take your point, Stylish, that endurance is needed mostly. I walked when my legs got quite achy when I could have continued really. But I didn't want to overdo it as I had a long day's work the next day.

(That's my excuse, anyway.)

Hi everyone. Pleased that I have done all my training.

The ongoing problems I have though, is that I tend to do all my runs either fairly steady or quite slow. Also I often forget to stretch properly before and after!

But I have been 'cross-training' once or twice a week doing exercise classes at the local leisure centre. I think that helps, doing weight training and supervised stretches.

I would like to do more speed work, but when running I get tired quickly. On the treadmill I can monitor my speed better and try to do some there.

This looks a good introduction to ultra runs. How are the directions and signage for this, ie. is it good enough for someone new to the area?

In previous years, there has been a half-way option. Is this still available? Any cut-off times?

July is not really the time to run long distances. How have people found this?
