Emmy thanks for the link. Amazing lady
Thanks Shades for your advice. Feel better about not worrying about fitting in lots of long runs before GNR.

9 miles for me this morning. A bit off road, very muddy and wet with stinging nettles! Glad to do the miles but still feel sluggish and slow. Wonder how prepared I will feel for GNR..

Back from a lovely holiday in Portugal. I swam loads but only ran once.....too hot, villa up dirt track and worried I would get lost and I was fascinating to locals! Home yesterday after hassle of cancelled flights and then delays. Decided to run in the evening because of forecast for today. It was so hard. I struggled round 5.75 miles. 4 weeks today I have the GNR. Not sure how to use next 3 weeks of training. Can anyone advise me please? I did a slow 13 miles before we went away. Not easy training with work and children off school. I am also away again next week but can run. Thankyou!
Had a quick read back.Hope everyone is ok

Iain sounds like you had a great bike ride guess your body will adapt. I follow the T de F and it amazes me how they get on their bikes day after day and cycle such distances and heights!
Thanks Shades and others for your Garmin tips. Just tried again to switch it on and after nearly a week it turned on! Charging it now and will see what happens. A mystery!
Off on my hols tomorrow with no wifi. Happy running and racing everyone.

Not been on for a while. Hope everyone ok.
Thanks for all the tips but my Garmin is still not working. It is a forerunner 110 and out of guarantee. Will look to send it away when I return from Portugal. Strange running without it. Did 13 miles yesterday on feel and was slow! Still it was a confidence booster ahead of GNR early Sept.

Thankyou Mowser and Lee. Will have a look at those sites.
Congratulations Mowser on your amazing challenge. I am in awe of people running such a distance and on a hot sticky day.
I ran with a friend this morning. 5 miles felt quite tired. Aim to get up early tomorrow to do 13 miles in preparation for GNR as on Saturday I am off to Portugal. Think it is going to be very hot. Will take run stuff but not sure how much I will be able to do.
