Hi Wilkie, I've only just seen this.  So glad to hear you're on the mend.  Look after yourself.  

A hairy story...

I'll enter the ballot too, last time I got in was in 2009 for the first Virgin London Marathon in 2010.  Within a month of getting the 'Congratulations' magazine I got ill with the crohns for the first time and hardly ran a step for almost 2 years.  Making up for lost time now though.  

Sinbad - there's no magic formula out there, if you want to stop drinking then you have to not drink.  Making plans to drink less or only on this or that day won't work.  Socialising with (heavy) drinkers won't work - you're making it really really difficult for yourself.  

BWF lovely morning for a run, a bit envious to be honest as I had to get out early.

I was going for my oxygen tank session but started feeling rough on the way there and my ears blocked and wouldn't pop so I didn't want to risk it and went to visit my sister instead.  Still feeling rough now so think this lurgy is making a comeback.  It was very kind and disappeared just enough for me to do the marathon and now it's coming back to bite me on the bum - payback!   

Hope everyone's had a lovely Wednesday - been gorgeous out there hasn't it

HI Trigger, yes - I'll be entering again.  This year wasn't through the ballot - I got a club place last but had to defer as I was poorly.

Having a lovely Tuesday thanks  BWF  

VLM was great - a bit of a slow run with the chip time at 5:55 but I had a fab day and enjoyed myself.  I kept getting the cramp pains in my right foot that I've had for about a month now since the Hastings 1/2m so had to keep stopping and taking my shoe off.  I was on course for a sub 5 for the first 10 miles but once once I knew I'd have to keep stopping I decided just to take it easy and enjoy the crowds.  It was really hot too but for some reason it didn't bother me as much as some people.  

Thankfully I managed to beat the rhinos, big bird, sonic the hedgehog and Ironman but I was really happy not to be beaten by the man with the fridge on his back!

I don't believe it - I missed you all.  I must have run straight past you all.  I had some dates in my bag and had to eat some jelly babies and wine gums but didn't dare touch  the jaffa cakes

Evening all - getting a bit worried now.  I felt good yesterday but have have a bad migraine type headache all day today and my neck glands are swollen again.  Hoping it's all gone by 7am tomorrow when I have to catch the train.  

I got the top done in Snappy Snaps in T.Wells Cinders.

I only spent £20 in the expo - I wanted some Hoka shoes for the ultras but the didn't feel right.  I had kc with me and couldn't concentrate so gave up and made a swift exit.  I have to say that whoever thought this years 'goodie' bags were good or goodie should be shot - one nutrigrain biscuit with the consitency of chipboard and one fish oil capsule plus the leaflets - pretty bad offerings..........

I dropped a box there yesterday with some food in it for me ST.  You obviously weren't there and the girls on the RW stand didn't really know what was going on.   Maddie/SuperCaz/Foxy Lady et al.  I have crohns disease and can't eat the normal sort of food/gels/drinks.  There should be a Carte D'or ie cream tub with a couple of bananas, some medijool dates and some salted peanuts in it.  If for any reason they're not there could you possibly get some for me.  I can only eat spotty bananas so don't worry if you can't find them but some dates (medijool if poss) and a small bag of salted peanuts should see me through the last few miles.  I'll take a few quid with me to pay you for it.  Thanks.   

Slightly panicking because the first girl I spoke to on the RW stand didn't know anything about the supporters group so I looked around to see if you were somewhere else.  I couldn't find you so went back to RW and the next girl said the place to leave stuff was with them

Bloody Rhinos - they get everywhere don't they 

Don't mind it when I end up running with a crew of firemen though - had a load holding a ladder between them once, that was a nice diversion .

I know the route's been reversed in the Isle of Dogs/Docklands bit but I can't tell the difference as it was all being developed then so most of it was a building site anyway.  

The restored Cutty Sark will look different - I used to play on it as a kid as I'm from that area.  I saw the piccys of it and the bottom bit is all enclosed now with costa coffee's and similar stuff.  Not as interesting to look at as the proper bow with the portholes and canons

Training advice please

Should I be doing back to back long runs of equal distance if that's what the ultra will be like?
