After worrying about the 5 hr cut off finished in 4:45:11 so very pleased!Lovely Marshalls but 2 laps hard especially seeing the second lap mile markers when still on first lap!!Ran 20 miles before a 10 second walk at water station.Chuffed with that!Ran u the underpass and all the way to the finish.A great day

Finally found the Abingdon thread!

Some very fast runners hereI'm just hoping to squeeze in under the 5 hours!Did 2:14 at Oxford Half so entirely possible but will be close.Not liking the weather forecast for Sunday but hopefully the wind will be blowing in the right direction!Think I'm having a dip in confidence as Sunday gets closer Excited though

Dont think im going to make it.I havent run since August BH weekend as caught flu then a bacterial chest infection which I'm currently on antibiotics for.Up until illness all ok and had done a 18 mile run and two 16 mile runs.But thats not enough and with the lingering coughing,sore throat and general tiredness I know I cant safely run a marathon in just over 5 weeks.Gutted.


Is the transfer option still open or is there someone here who would take my place?

We are booked to fly on Thursday am from Heathrow With Air France

Lets hope strike is called off,negotiations ongoing and result will be known tues pm.

So tomorrow afternoon will know what's happening,could've done without this.They certainly know when to cause the most disruption.

Another q for the experienced Paris runners!

When we pick up our numbers from the Expo do they then give us all the race information we need?

Not long to go.HM for me tomorrow but weather looking wet and windy!

Silly q really but does Paris tend to be warm for the marathon or maybe a typical showery April day?I favour a cool drizzily day!

Last long run done this am 18 miles.

First marathon where all trainIng has gone well.April 12th can't come quick enough.

With regards fuelling I have a gel and Nutrigrain raisin breakfast bake (30g of carbs)

Alternate those each hour with a few jelly babies in between.Works fine for me.
