Thanks heather. I am coping with the loss of bath halt relatively well...morning for the spa and madam butterfly in the afternoon gotta love living in London.  Ahh...the hip...went out, got drunk, fell on stairs, felt stiff but ran 10km to work 3 days later...couldn't lift leg 30min after finishing run. Bursitis that just hasn't come right. All my own fault...great night out though.

Hey all, I've once again been lurking but not posting. To all that are feeling tired and a bit over this marathon training thing. As everyone else has put more eloquently it's completely normal and hold on in there!!!!! Keep the kms going, be careful of the niggles, get lots of sleep and eat healthy. You're in the last "6miles" of your plan dig in and get to the taper. when it gets tough just think of the big mob behind you from here willing you on.

as for me...well, it's kinda the reason why I haven't been participating in the forum as much as usual. I am still well and truly on the injury bench. I got one 20kmer in and got all enthusiastic so stupidly entered the bath half for this sunday. Luckily a lovely forumites husband has taken my place (don't want to say who as it's not a legal transfer but huge thanks to them for bailing me out of my stupidity). So today I've had my second injection in hip (ultra sound guided fancy stuff that I watched on the screen) and been instructed not to do anything until wed at earliest. Then my knee is playing up because of the chance on gait from hip...basically I'm a mess. So it's very doubtful I'll be run/walking even in paris BUT I have a flag pole, it's eurostar compliant and I will definitely be coming to support!!!! The next few weeks will decide whether I toodle around but if anyone has supporters that would like a bit of a guide on the big day let me know and if I don't run then tgey are most welcome to join me and my pole (not yer majs husband, he's a different type of pole )

Hey all, been keeping up to date on cold arses and injuries/illnesses. My training...umm well... hip still playing up and now knee has joined the party so I'm absolutely winging it.

Someone asked about spectators. Yup, I have a guide on it all. Ifyouur supporters aren't up for a dash around the city then best spots are at the bottom of the champs for the start, then walk 100yrdsto the sienne for 25ish kms and after that head to the finish. Pack some food, wear comfy shoes and make sure supporters stand out! A runner is far more likely to see a supporter than a supporter pick out a runner from the crowd, esp if runner was all bundled up in different clothes for the start.

Other fyi, paris metro is getting better but it still isn't pushchair friendly. Lots of steps with no alternative.

Pop my a pm or email radar (underscore) sal at yahoo (dot) com (dot) au and no I'm not Australian. We didn't have a yahoo domain in nz, it's that long ago I got that email.

Keep up the awesome running everyone!!! I am well jel!!!!!

I don't drink in the hour or so before start but the nervous pees always get me. My annual sober pre9am open air champs ellysses pee is a bit of a tradition for me now

Hiahs - i think you've earned a rest!

As I very cautiously nudge off the injury bench...attention Bath halfers. I had to get a vip package for my entry but turns out it's a pretty good deal with prerace coffee/tea, parking, during race snack for supporters, showers and post race buffet fod you and two guests. Works out at around £12 each. Around the cost of a pub lunch. So we're going VIP *snort*. Keysersuze has pmed a few people from the events list so we can arrange upgrade buddies etc. Anyone else who's coming to bath pm me or Keysersuze. Bring on the partay tent and postrace buffet!!! There will be cake.

Natty - pop me down for the bath half on 1st of March. I have had two relatively successful runs on hip so...I am tentatively entering everything in sight
