Awesome running jimbob congratulations, what is the target for Boston?

Freddy1 - I plump for high 5 Isogel 60ml, smooth tasting


Agent P - the target for Boston will be 3-fold. 1) Run a PB  2) Run (& finish) with a big smile on my face  3) and get a humungous Double bacon, cheese and chilli burger with extra Mayo, spicy relish and pickles, and Chilli fries on the side, as my post race meal (and cold beers)   - take note Dannir

Weedy please put me, you, and a shit load of crazy pals down for the Amsterdam Marathon on October 18th. We'd better have a thread at some point instead of hijacking this old place - in the spirit of making other Dammers feel welcome to join in the banter. Lets wait till we all signed up and i'll start the ball rolling in a couple of weeks.

Continuing on from what Lev is saying .... you get those extra 3 weeks, but also if you wanted to go all out at the GNR (or another Autumn half) - I think you'd still have that race in your legs if you race 2 weeks after at a marathon. Really, one of them is your A race, but with all the training it would be a shame not to try and blast the half and nick a PB, recover, do a bit more mileage, then taper, then race the marathon.

I'm on the marathon come down, wondering whether or not to stick to my plan of doing no more road races until March.  I probably will stick to it. I like the idea of hibernating my racing urges and just doing some good hard winter training, coming back in the spring and seeing what (if any) progress I have made)  I'll have to rein my mouse hand in from clicking on entering the Gosport Half and the San Sebastien Marathon. I can't afford it - it's stupid, there's no value in it! (Stop it Jimbob!)

BTW did I mention? Ryan - that was a rallying call from you at the final turn. Thanks Mate - it got the blood pumping and I ran a good track!

My taper madness from last week has been fully replaced with post race ache.

Bufo, I'm in for Amsterdam next year. Abingdon was great Yesterday. Berlin was great last year, although at the end of Sept it is a bit early if you run a spring marathon, then have a rest, then do another full training cycle. I hear good things about Frankfurt. And Chicago, looks to be fun. Valencia is very fast and flat (did that last year) if you want something a bit later, and some people recommend Florence.

You have to give us more than that OO-51!  Jimbob, what have you done?

General entry places have run out, but for anyone looking for a very flat HM in March to prepare for Paris, Cambridge still has places via Cancer Research: 

A good day at the office at the Abingdon Marathon. Bombed it in a PB 3:02.23 Was most pleased with this result
