Anyone else doing a marathon this spring in Vibrams?

Posted: 12/02/2016 at 17:53

I was wondering if there was anyone else out there doing a spring marathon in vibrams this year? 

I did London in them last year and saw a few other runners in them.

From experience I would be wary of too many hill sessions.  Puts a lot of strain on the lower legs.  MK is supposed to be as flat as it gets anyway.

How is everyone's training going. Coming to the end of the first phase of my PD 55 to 70 mile plan. Missed three runs so far due to family reasons my daughter'a christening. But otherwise on target. Not making the mistake of doubling up or running on rest days to make up miles that I did in the past.

I have never had a pair of shoes that have done more than 300 miles without becoming unusable.  That includes conventional as well as barefoot.

Mine rarely last more than 6 weeks.  I use vibrams however and they can only stand about 200 odd miles.

I too was glad of booked parking in 2012. After 26.4 miles (they added a bit extra to get round the flooding) of storm conditions I was in no state to go hunting for the car.
Plus it makes things much less stressful when you get there. No frantic search for a space.

Hi Tenjiso,

Did 9 including 4 tempo yesterday.  Started a day early to fit in plans later in week.  

Doing 11 tonight.  Doing the  55 to 70.  Don't expect to get a pb due to not being as fit now as I was in 2013 when I did London for the first time and got my last gfa.  Just want to get under 3.15.
