AA I'm based in North London. Had a corker at Reading a couple of weeks back. Good luck with the double header. If you are about on Friday arvo with Hubby we'll try to hello maybe. I'll be at expo Friday arvo around 3-4 ish in London 2012 team GB jacket.

Taper is going alright. I feel like a blob.

Knocked my knee at work today on a sticky out metal thing. It's bruised and sore. Planning 6 miles "whatever pace" in the morning.

Always Aching. Welcome - 18 marathons! Blimey! 

Our paths may have crossed over the years, I've ran a fair few Reading halves and Abingdon back in Oct.

I've never ran back to backers and people at my club say I am mad to do it. I realise they are probably right, but I had the London place and although I ran the BQ I never knew I would get it for sure, so London was my backup, with so many pals taking part it seems a shame to waste it. I plan to race Boston, and "have fun" at London if the legs permit it, Stop for a few selfies, a quick pint etc.  Worst case scenario, I wake up on the day and decide not to do it and just go down and support.  

5 more days till I fly. Another run crossed off the plan, gentle 11 mile "taper" run - no pace, just enjoying the sunshine with a couple of clubmates. Came back home to stalk all my mates' brilliant progress in various marathons, mainly Paris, also representation in Vienna, Brighton and Worcester. Marathon Season is truly upon us and next week it's OUR TURN.

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to run my "planned" pace. My legs don't feel anywhere near it at the moment. Managed a few miles of it earlier in the week but it was such an effort. Thou shall have faith in the Taper and que sera etc. Two more short runs to go, then the Boston 5k with a mate, then Boston Baby ....

I'll be at the Expo on Friday Arvo - anyone else plan to be there then?

It's not crazy talk to some on this thread Kirsty. I'm doing back to backers Boston on 20/4 London on 26/04. There are a few multi marathoners on this thread. You won't be able to do the second one as hard as the first. If you are ok then it's doable as long as you rest ice in between. GOOD LUCK
