Oh VB what is the matter with her skull??  I'm guessing you've already had the appointment with paeds - how did it go?


Ha ha ha Gatton I promise not to let on to Mrs G just yet!

Hey everyone, can't believe our thread still going! Most of you I catch up with now and again on Facebook.

Been out of action since August last year as spiral fracture in toe and stress fracture in 5th metatarsal and midfoot. Been in an air cast until a few days ago. To say I have been going out of my mind with not running is an understatement!!! Still a long way to go and only just re learning to walk. No marathon for me this year which I'm particularly gutted about as was so close to sub 4hr last April. So hoping to be fit enough for 2014 and as will be just after my 50th if I go sub 4 it will be a GFA. Gatton maybe we can start training together slowly?

So what is everyone up to and anyone doing London/Brighton this year or similar?

VB how is your baby now?

Daz best of luck for Sunday and you too Dave - hope you have a great run and hit your targets. Not been on here for sooo long now I tend to speak to most on Facebook or email. I did Brighton on Sunday - nearly didn't make the start line due to back problems again - and came in with so close to sub 4 but under the circumstances and considering when I first came on this forum I was doing 5:35 marathon times, I'm pretty chuffed!!

Anyone else got any other races lined up? Caro are you back running again yet or is it still too early after Eric was born?

Hi Vik hope you are feeling better now. And can you all please get your hands off Colin so I can have a go?!?

I did 18 on Saturday morning and tried a different eating strategy as the jelly babies had been making me feel so sick.  I ditched the lucozade too and went with some oat and ginger cookies munching on half to one every 4 or so miles.  Tummy was fine but after about 12 miles I did feel so much more tired and heavy legged than on the 16 the week before.  Not sure what I can try next - it seems to be the high sugar that does it - so any suggestions would be very much appreciated.  Gels (I've used High 5 in the past) also seem to leave me feeling icky.  Foxy Lady do you find the lucozade jelly beans ok?  How many packets would you need for a marathon?

Hi everyone - finally found time to pop in after so long to say hello!  Hope everyone is fit and well and injury free - Gatton how is the jogging coming along?  Mr T now cycling 30 miles at a time at weekends and not even a year since his op.

Fab news on arrival of baby Eric - many congrats Caro

Been keeping in touch with most of you via facebook but how is running going for you all and who is doing London/Brighton/Paris or other marathon?  Can't believe its 6 years since i first came on here!!  I'm doing Brighton and really hoping to get closer to the magic 4 hrs.  Running 45 ish miles per week at the moment so all I seem to do is work, eat, sleep, run! Oh and cart Little Pinks around to various rowing training/events.

Hi Vik (and everyone else! )

Sorry I only just found out about your thread so have only just arrived - hope you all don't mind me joining in. Vik and I met on the RW FLM Virgin thread - was it 2 years ago?? I first came on RW when I started running and did my first marathon (London) in 2006 and have been addicted ever since.

Vik you are doing brilliantly...and you are very similar to where I was a couple of years back. I did my first half at Brighton in 2:35 and first London in 5:35. Last year was my 5th marathon in 4:17 and in December I did a PB for a half in 1:52 and hoping to get closer to 4hrs at Brighton this year So I know you can reach your goals!!

Is everyone on here doing Brighton?

So daughter and I have places for Brighton - 15th April week before London This time I might actually make it - feels a bit weird after all that happened earlier this year but not going to think about that. Now I need a schedule, when do we start training???

Rod how is the taper going and how do you feel about Sunday???

Sounds fun!! MK is a bit of a boring course and daughter and I going to do it together so really wanted one with a bit more atmosphere and support so think will try Brighton as hope I also have my place from last year and I did raise well over what they asked me too.

Can't do Edinburgh as the timing is wrong with Little Pinks end of year exams and now he is year 10 they are getting all the more important.

Lovely 10 ish mile run this morning and very fresh air that really blew the cobwebs out. First time since winter I had a long sleeve top on and hands felt quite chilled too so think I will have to invest in some new gloves.
