London Marathon chip malfunction

Posted: Yesterday at 11:36
Apparently my chip stopped working after 30k! my husband was tracking me for the whole marathon and he started to worry he thought I'd collapsed . It was ok after 35k though not sure what happened I have all my splits I'm not really bothered about my time really enjoyed it

Thank you I'm so nervous don't want collapse in a heap and not get my medal . My training hasn't gone completely to plan injury put paid to that still have the odd twinge from my knee . I'm booking in to get a sports massage before Mday and after .   I can't believe I can nearly run 20miles now never thought I would be able too

I noticed a bit on here about gels too . I run. With a club and have  been training every Sunday for my marathon since January they use gels coming up to the first hr of running to keep topped up . I've also been told that glycogen only lasts for an hr of exercise and best to use a gel before that time to stop the tired feeling . I've never done it at 15miles I know I would collapse . I suppose though if your able to run 15miles in an hr you wouldn't need anything and I'm a very slow runner that needs the fuel

Just noticed this thread I'm running my first ever marathon in 3 weeks I'm really nervous . I've so far ran 18.5miles and I'm doing the Oakley 20 . I did get a bit behind with my training haven't managed to do weights or any core work I'm worried I havent trained enough ! I know I should of done more but the running alone has been really difficult with having a family and looking after my disabled son . All I would like to know is have I done enough ?

The furthest is about 7 miles I'm planning to to 9 this week . I was just going to run and see how far I can go.  The injury is my IT band it's still not 100% but it's not made worse with running I just stretch and ice my  knee after a run
