Yes another sad story to come out of the marathon

although I beg to differ , if we all listened to our bodies yesterday none of us would have finished , I certainly wouldn't have !  there were obviously underlying unknown health  factors in Roberts case  

London Marathon chip malfunction

My very first ever marathon , then flora London marathon , I stuck my foot out for the chip to be cut off to discover it was missing ,gutted !!!!!!  the tyvek strip thing had come off as it was wet , I did get an official time eventually but it took about a month to see it appear on the results , I am sure they will do there best for you they know how much it means

NP inspirational report , ( and I have seen the six pack so I know he's telling the truth ! ) 

you inspire me to still aim for a PB over a half and full marathon after this years fairly comfortable 3.45 ( 5 mins off my PB set I 2008 ) until this year I was happy saying I am a granny now so give up on targeting PBS ( that's a pathetic excuse 

you are lucky to get by on so little fluid though  Mind you I guess you weren't out there as long as me

NP my family said they saw you at half way looking amazing well done hope you aren't disappointed not have hot 3.15 ha ha
Fiona awesome what a great time well done indeed
Maths chick great report well done you ! I don't know how you remember so much detail enjoy the celebrations
HM4 , well done to Chris , we were chatting about you yesterday and said it would have been nice if you had joined us for tea and cake
Jason I don't know how you do it ! Oh yes , 3 x large chunks of cake as carb loading , I can't remember seeing that in the paleo diet for athletes
Not looking for a pb myself today , just wanted sub 4 to get back on the green start , I think the relaxed mind and slow start did the trick ... Delighted with 3.45 Will get around to writing a report later , on the train home now , legs have been a lot worse after a marathon

Good morning 

well here I am at the hotel in London , I travelled up yesterday in order to get the expo saga out of the way , I didn't fancy cramming a train journey to London and fighting my way round London to get to the expo all before 5 pm  today , it must leave runners knackered .

It was bad enough yesterday , a 3.25 hour train journey from Exeter turned into 4 hours thanks to signal failure , I then had to get to hotel book in dump bags , then travel across to the excel which took about an hour from where I am staying , the tubes are a night mare , how anyone does that every day in order to get to work I really don't know ! 

I resisted the temptation to buy a new garmin  at the expo , mines broken  It hasn't been able to pick up a satellite for the last couple of weeks , so borrowing my brothers tomorrow , I will treat myself to a new one when I get paid 

Having come  up on my own I was pleased to get chatting to a couple of women at the hotel also  running and I joined them for a meal last night 

my brother sister in law and 2 friends are travelling up today and I will meet them lunch time , then of course it's off to st James park to meet up with NP Fiona and Jason  

having not run further than 9 miles in the lsat 10 days am already missing the long runs ( although I have a very long run tomorrow ha ha )  , and am considering an autumn marathon , maybe Dublin , but I will reconsider that tomorrow afternoon when I will probably say never again ! like we always do .  Then change our minds back again within a week 

Catch up again later

NP/Fiona , you will have to remind me exactly how to find that little cafe ( senior moment occurring 

CL4 ummmm racing  2 days in the trot ? Why ? Are you wanting decent times or just doing them for the sake of it ? 

StewartC at least you got some fresh air , I always think recovering from a marathon is a bit like getting over the flu , you have good days and bad days for a good few weeks ( well I do ) you aren't just recovering from 1 x 26.2 mile run , but also  months of hard training 

MG1 very nice speedy run 

Fiona fast recovery indeed are your friends looking for the same kind of time as you 

SM6 take care , don't put pressure on yourself

lazy day still sat in bed watching Jeremy Kyle and playing candy crush level 169   Will go for walk later
