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!

From 0 to a Marathon in 22 weeks.

Still lurking here but popping in to say well done PompeyMatt - you must still be grinning!

Working towards my next HM on 16 October and hoping for better than my pb of 2:06

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.

VLM 2017 !!

Morning! Filthy weather out there this morning - can't wait for my run home today! Still, it's only 3 miles so won't be too bad. Week 2 now of 12 week training plan for my September HM.

Hello Spenno and Crispy - hope you're ok.

Harmander you're a legend!

So wet at the Olympic Park yesterday I swear I almost came back with webbed feet. Managed to finish the 10k in 55:03 so happy with that. Not happy that there were some amongs the "Elite 10k" who were finishing the first 5k lap in 44 minutes? Not quite sure for the rationale behind that one but was not the only one standing in the rain waiting for the 11.00 start for the "mass 10k"

Hope everyone's had good weekends. The schedule starts today for the 12 weeks leading up to the HM on 4 September. I like today's schedule - REST!

Welcome back KieranG you'll soon be back where you left off in times of stamina etc. Well done for your marathon entry!

Have decided against the Vitality next year - the route was changed a couple of years ago which meant that it no longer runs along the Embankment nor does it go through Leadenhall market - both of which were great parts of the course. It was congested this year and if they increase the numbers next year it will be even worse unless you get in the front pens. Unfortunately my time doesn't put me there so probably time to call it a day. Have entered a local 10k for ??16 which is what I would call reasonable. The Marathon is certainly good value at ??39.

Managed to dodge the thunderstorms yesterday - they were over by the time I finished school. Looks like there are more today but I'm not running home tonight!

My next 10k is this Sunday at the Olympic Park - something arranged by the Dame Kelly Holmes Foundation - anyone there?

Have a good day
