Can't say I've ran any marathon long runs withint 20 seconds of my marathon pace... apart from one race say... apart from that, I'd be lucky if I ran any training within 30 seconds for the full length, not sure what this mean./.. probably explains why I die at 24 miles hahaha If I ran say 18+ at my MP pace or anywhere near it, I'd be in bits for about two weeks so I just tend to train slowish and blast lots of short stuff... saying that, PB isn't anything to shout about so maybe I'm doing it all wrong as people have said before, hey ho... think it's always different for different people.

Well, I'll be bright Orange Vest with "PUG" on the front, 6ft 1" and bald... you can't miss me hahaha. Yeah, we'll be staying Fri/Sat/Sun night travelling abck Monday... can't wait, really looking forward to it. As for pace, well, hoping to go through half way in 1:21 and hold on for a 2:42:30 ish... but will decide with one week to go on pace... that's the current target though...if all else fails however, a sub 2:45 has to be Plan B.

BEJ Nope, Liverpool not a chance, everytime they seem to arrange a race longer than 10k, something happens, road works they didn't know about, no goodie bags, send runners the wrong way cutting 1/2 mile of course etc etc... honestly wouldn't touch them with a barge pole and who has a barge pole Chester Marathon all the way for me this year, already entered for the same day as Liverpool and as I was born in Chester, I feel it's my local marathon adn should support it.

Very very good news on bottles, but then again no suprise, I thought the drinks last year were bottles, sure they were, although I had my own thanks to Chris and the organisers...

Wonder what the entry is like now for this? How many people? Liverpool have announced theirs and tbh, I hope Chester fills properly...

Not injured but had a run (ho, ho) of viral infections late Nov - mid Jan which meant training has been very patchy.  Didn't want the pressure of VLM off a compromised build-up and, a spring chicken at 31, I figure I still have quite a few years to master the 2.5x marathon.  10k in May and then half-marathon in September are now this year's A races.

Sounds like a plan, and a proper one, very like myself hahaha

Pug - Your name was mentioned the other day regarding RWHs weighloss, hows your weight and your running ?

Weight = Heavy, Running = OK. that's how I see it at the moment. After Amsterdam Half last October, barely ran at all, think i did around 61 in November and 42 in December.. so basically bugger all. Had a terrible 6 months after Chester Marathon. July got a water infection, quickly followed by a flu bug that moved into my muscles, which took over three months to work it's way out, hence, at Berlin and Lake Vyrnwy, I should never have even tried running as legs were in pain 100% of the time... to put it in perspective, I couldn't bend EVER to put a DVD in the machine... all behind me knees were sore, in my hips, joints etc etc. Worst I've ever had that... never thoughts I'd get over it...  By the time it worked it's way out, come October, I'd lost the will to live, plodded around Amsterdam and sacked running off. Have a guess what happened then? 1st January = 14 stone 2lbs of Pug rofl ( 90kg in new money)... and thought, better actually get running again so, into my 5th week now... very tired, very slow... but hey ho... that's life.

Afternoon all, long time no speak... after a quick skim through, seems to be loads of new people on here, so I assume the quality has jumped up again me thinks. Anyhow, thought I'd pop in and say hello.
