40% discount - that's brilliant - would certainly be rude not to take advantage Rosielou!

Lot of excitement now! Yesterday was tough - I chose a hilly route but hopefully it will stand me in good stead. My fastest ever HM was this April in Limassol but that was in 30 degree heat so fingers crossed that I'll be closer to 2 hours if not sub!

Good luck Harmander - that's some schedule of Marathons!

Can't wait for the results to be out and not decided yet whether I'm nervous or excited or both!

Anyone else been receiving emails from VLM asking them to consider running for a charity? Everytime I see their email address in my inbox my heart skips a beat!

Not long before the waiting is over!

Sorry Sam missed your post as I was in Cyprus.

Training not going too badly. Had a HM on 4 September and managed 2:24 - disappointed with that as I'd been hoping for sub 2 hours. My current pb is 2:06 but this just wasn't the course for it.

Hopefully Manchester will be better!

My OH booked a hotel on Alex Ferguson Way - not sure which one!

How about you and your training?

Morning all and welcome to the newbies.

Back from holiday on 31 August and slogging away towards the marathon next April hopefully. I managed to stick with the training whilst in Cyprus even though it meant getting up at 6 a.m. and running at 7 when it was still 34 degrees. Managed 10 miles in 1:51 and was quite happy with that.

My first HM on 4 September was awful - just not the course I was expecting so I posted a miserable 2:24 - was hoping for sub 2 with my previous pb being 2.06 which I achieved at Limassol HM in April this year.

I have Manchester HM on 16 October so will try again then.

Harminder I would very much like to join you too for the running the route sections even though I've run VLM before - especially the last two - Tower Bridge to Finish line and the 20 miler.

Hope you all have good days.
