Walking a marathon is easier?

Actually that's where you're wrong SR. All my friends and family think it is an amazing achievement that I have successfully made it through my training and will be at the starting line on Sunday - me too!
A know of a lot of people, and many people on here too, who have not made it to the start of their marathon due to illness and injury, so to actually make it this far is an achievement in itself.

Well no one thinks it's an achievement because you haven't run it yet.

Remember, make sure both feet are off the ground at all times, otherwise, you will be laughed off RW if you attempt to say you have grafted hard enough to be worthy of your medal... 

Lol  - Good luck on Sunday HeOw. Fingers crossed that the weather is kind to us!

Aiming for sub 4.30 at manchester on Sunday. Will be pleased as punch when I finish it, even if I have to walk some of it and even if it takes me longer than that to do so. 

This time last year was over 3 stone heavier and a 20 a day smoker. I feel proud of how far I have come, so  to those of you who don't think it's an achievement.

Totally agree it is horrific. Targetting marathon runners, the majority of which would be running for charity, and their families and friends is just sick. Sad times indeed. 

Glad your sister is ok Carovet

The organisers have added a new section on their website called "marathon weekend". It has some good info on there. With regards to headphones it says :

"Wearing earphones for the race
These are not allowed in the race. Even though this is a closed road event, you need to be aware of your fellow runners and be able to react to instructions from marshals if necessary. Anybody seen wearing earphones will be asked to remove them."

No way! I planned on leaving home at 6.30, which is way early enough, no one in their right mind would prevent runners getting to the carpark after this time - it would be chaos!

Website has been updated and says:

"Forecast is now for snow later on in the afternoon, and maybe to the South of Roberttown, so we should be OK. If the weather is unkind to us and we do have to cancel, we will put a message on here as soon as possible"

Keep your fingers crossed everyone. Although if it is still on it will be a cooooold one

Scuba Diving During Marathon Training

I have completely messed up and booked a week's scuba diving holiday 3 weeks before my marathon date 

I know i will be tappering my by milage then but would still want to get some treadmill runs in during the week. I was thinking of aiming for three runs during the week, and think perhaps early morning before the days diving would be best. I am also thinking that I should dive with Nitrox all week to keep my nitrogen levels down.  

Does anyone have any experience of diving and running ? Any advice would be greatfully received. Thank you
