Steve Marathon Coach if you see this did you run? I am torn between thinking you are the AW one not the other one, and you're the other other one, but the AW one had injuries in the build up so am now confused.

Actually I failed to check whetehr there were 2 of you in the results!

I'm loving the reports, I feel a part of so many different experiences, yet all linked.

Hi everyone, thanks for the good wishes Ant Mc Neill. I only had my phone at the B&B so forgive my silence.

Had a fab day out, including a jogette with Superman Tim in the first mile or so, and yes met up with Bramster last night at our club after party.

I ran 3:59:25, which is very much a Bramster sort of time, although he went slightly better yesterday. We failed to meet at the merger.

I had woken with a suddenly acute achilles, my warm-up was tentative and not encouraging. Got going once various pains had shot all over my left foot from the ankle, parking at the knee as usual, which I could cope with.

My left calf was tugging from mile 6 so had to keep it steady to avoid cramp, got to halfway in 1:58:06, and used that cushion to coast in rather than risk blowing up in the second half.

It amazes me how different the effort level is between 3:54 and 3:59.

I'm so grateful to have come through able to run at all, and then sub 4 was such a bonus, it would be greedy to want more given where I was a month ago.

Many thanks for all the support, Amy and team!

Great runs BRB and ktkt.

Wow guys, these times are fantastic!

I'm delighted to have squeezed in a cheeky sub 4 - 3:59:25 - after waking with a screaming achilles this morning, is all the more pleasing. My knee was sore on and off but the heel/achilles didn't really return [after a scary 1st mile of shooting pains through that foot] until 21.5.

My left calf tugged from around 6 miles too, all probably linked, but I think I discovered that the physio exercises worked well as it wasn't really hard work, just a rollercoaster of fear at emerging threats.

Still, dodging the bottles, the elbows, and the delerious was rivetting fun as always, and I had the special treat of dragging Super back to run with me right near the start.

Have just seen Bramster at the club after party, being a party animal am now at home watching the recordings of the day.

Oh! Missed the bench, we came at it from a totally different side from usual and were all turned around and needing to focus on the immediate requirements.

Hadn't seen Malcs' post about positioning - bummer.

Hi Amy, lurgy was a freak thing, and am now back to plain freaking out, trying to get the carbs in as you say, and keeping the nerves at bay.

My brother is here now, although we wil go over to the B&B in Lewisham later, despite just hearing that our lift to the start has fallen through.

My knee is a bit sore, and I don't know how I will go...guess we will find out tomorrow! I think I will try to hit 9 min miling, 9 mins between mile markers I mean, and see if that's realistic.

Carb load is going well, am still eating breakfast! so much so that I have missed jogging down to parkrun for a photo with my friend who is attempting the world superhero [as Spider not Super] record tomorrow [2:33 to beat and his PB under 2:17]...

I have a funny feeling that some of us may meet up during the run tomorrow, despite all this pen shennanigans. They have clearly gone a bit random.

BRB do not panic and please don't get yourself disqualified, head to the front of the Pen, wait til they lift the ropey thing away and then there's scope to edge forwards slghtly disproportionately.

But first mile took over 9:30 last year, the first time I ever didn't dart around freaking out with HR about 210 I kid you not - and had a 3:54 PB. Was hitting 8:15 miling @ 21 miles, getting it all back.

It's counterntuitive I know, but this year I am definitely going to be going for the negative split if to sneak under 4.

The vast majority of less experienced runners go off far faster than is sustainable over the distance, so let's stay strong and tiptoe past them all around Canary Wharf

I'm 54733 - Red - 3:59:59 to 4:14:59 - on the run will be wearing black Skins and compression top, white club vest with diagonal navy and tellow stripes, an Hawaiian skirt of gels, but if I make it to the bench [would be 8:30 I reckon], would still be wearing at least a jacket, possibly Kenny Dalgleish football manager stylee.

WIth the 2012 rucksack.

Super which Pen are you in?
