Thanks for all your replies. I really cant remember what time I put down when I entered knowing me I always go cautious and probably put down 4 hours. I always do this for any race I enter then get really frustrated by the congestion and people running a lot slower than myself - so could this be a problem at London? Am running a half in March so that is a good idea about seeing my time then to see if i've improved.
GazOC:- What mileage did you do in your Marathon training, as our times are really simular.
BarryB:- Am following the advanced training plan that came with the london Marathon Magazine, it involves running 5 times a week, building up the long run by 15 mins each week and the longest run you do is 22 miles that is in week 13.
Am confused if this is the right plan for me as looking at it I am already running at the standard of week 5, have started at week 1 as just dont want to get injured - anyone recommend plans that they are following/followed?
Thanks for the help - feel a bit out of my depth and quite daunted by the 26 miles, really want to prepare and train properly and to the best of my ability!
