OK daft question if my family exit the tube station at Westminster how can they get onto birdcage walk to watch the finish and also then can I  walk over a bridge to meet them after I finish over  birdcage itself so I can get to their side?  So they exit Westminster tube and want to go to birdcage walk how best can they do this please?

London smog and the Marathon.

Hope this smog or whatever they press are calling it goes before the London Marathon next week. Worst case scenario it's still here due to freak no wind weather you think they will cancel or postpone it, the health risk would be huge.

Best way for family to view me twice running London Marathon

Hi all hope the trainings going well. I have family coming down to watch  me do the London Marathon this year,  I'm hoping they can get to view me and 2 other family members running it at 2 spots, 1 obviously being the finish line.

I estimate I will take about 5 hours due to an Achilles heel injury that's destroyed my training schedule but its for charity so im  still doing it.

Ideally somewhere halfway then near the finish, I think last time they were near the statues outside parliament but think this time they'd like to be near the mall bit down there.

Any help from you experts is appreciated thanks.

Time to admit defeat with Achilles Heel injury & London Marathon place?

Posted: 01/03/2014 at 18:28

Absolutely gutted, only managed 9 miles today before  the achilles heel broke down, only 6 weeks to go till the London Marathon and  despite intense physio and daily treatment it's not having it, nasty little injury it is bloody Achilles heel. Maybe time to make a decision I've been working hard to not have to, fed up aint the half of it.

Did it about 6 weeks ago  after getting upto 12 mile runs and only managed a 10k last Monday and today 10 miles. It has got better but question is if I only manage 10 now how on earth can I get upto some amount to get me ready ie 18 miles say.

Familys booked hotels and train tickets booked and everything. Its a charity spot so cant defer.

Don't know if to try again next week see if I can do 2 miles more then this week like I jumped from last weeks 6 to 10 today. Last week it hurt enough to stop at 6, this week I got to 9. So my thinking is maybe next week it will  let me get to 12 perhaps, then keep adding 2 miles a week and have a 2 week taper,  my time last year was 5 hours 18 minutes as I was affected by the heat, I don't do heat well and got really badly sunburnt.

I'm gutted and not sure what to do.
