Target 26.2 - First Timer Steve's Journey to Paris

Glad to see you're perservering with the knee Steve! Do seek another opinion and never ever give up on your dreams of completing a marathon.

Hi Steve, gutted to see that you won't be doing the marathon, but the fact that you're still heading out to Paris to support the others says so much about you as a person. I look forward to updates on your recovery over the coming weeks!

Hi Steve

I can only echo what everyone else has said. The crucial thing I have learned through this whole marathon training process is how important it is to listen to our bodies...even when we really don't want to. Your results in training have been a real inspiration to me and I'm sure to the others on the forum as well. I just want you to do yourself justice when you do run a marathon as opposed to potentially harming yourself long-term when you could have many more running years ahead of you.

Keep your head up, you've got support from everyone no matter what conclusion you come to.

Hi Steve

Knee feeling any better? In response to your question, I did recently get myself a Garmin 410 but am still in the process of leaving how to use it properly. Colchester half may now now not happen for me, slight knee niggles myself and this close to Brighton (one month today!) I think I may be better off with a few days rest but we'll see.

Hi Steve, first time I've logged on in a while and really good to see that you've been able to get back out running, albeit that its a bit tentative for the moment. I appreciate that the times and distances won't be quite as good as what you were doing a few weeks back but to echo some of the other posts on your thread, your progress has been phenomenal so keep that positivity going as I'm sure it will help your recovery and get you back to your best sooner rather than later.

You asked if I had any other races planned - I'm doing the Colchester half this Sunday. I'm hoping to break 4hours for Brighton so I think for the half I'm going try and stick to even pacing at 9mins per mile for the half. My pacing is normally all other the place but yours always seems so exact - how do you do it?!

Keep smiling!

Hi Steve, sorry to hear about the injury. I got round The Silverstone half in 1.52 which I was really happy with as its my first time at the distance. Fingers crossed that a few days rest sorts you out and has you flying round again.

Hi Steve, hope the knee is feeling better. I have no idea what time to aim for at Silverstone having never done a half before but the plan is just to get out there, enjoy it and see how I get on. I definitely plan on boosting my carb intake in the couple of days leading up to the race...does cake count?!

Hi Steve, I've just caught up on the posts from the past week and think you're doing fantastically well. My first ever half is Silverstone next week and wondered if you have any more races lined up before Paris?
