Brighton Marathon 2015

I booked a premier inn on 20/04/14 (first day they became available) and for 2 rooms for 2 nights in Newhaven in will cost just under £300. I could have gone this weekend and it would have been half the price.  Supply and demand I guess.

Thanks Greenfairy, I booked tickets to get me into London Rd on the advice of John2443 so hopefully won't get delayed for long getting out of the station.

The logistics of travel, hotel and babysitting all seem harder to sort than the run at the moment.

Thanks J Swizzle and John2443 for your advice, it really is appreciated.  I didn't realise it was 9:15 start, I have booked for London Road station and I won't have any baggage to worry about anyway.

Hi All

Lots of questions I am afraid and I am hoping that somebody might be able to help.

I have never run Brighton before and we are staying in Newhaven the night before.  The earliest train we can get to Brighton on the morning will arrive at 8:34 and then we have a 10 min walk to Preston Park, do you think this will give us enough time to get into our pen?  I know it starts at 9am will they let us in to the pen at 8:45-8:50 or do they shut them off at a certain time?

Thanks in advance.

Well, everything was fine today, can't say I enjoyed the run because I had concerns all the way round, not because there was anything wrong just because it was still so fresh in my head.

I think I need to really make a decision as to whether or  not I want to run Brighton at 12.5 miles I had decided that I didn't want to go to Brighton because of the concerns I had today but reflecting on it 2 hours later, I think maybe I should and just run slower than I would have planned.

I ran with my HRM on today but I not sure if this help or made it worse as it is not something I normally use.

I have the training in my legs to run Brighton so I think I might just taper as per plan.

Sorry for the ramble again.

Thanks numbersix, went for a run yesterday morning and I am still here to tell the tale.  To be honest it is playing on my mind but I know that exercise and especially running is the only thing that clears my head and relieves the stresses of work.  I have a half marathon on Saturday and I think I am going to go, run and enjoy it but I might slow up a bit just for this one.

Thank you all for your replies.  I am going to go out this morning for a run with a friend and make the most of some time away from work.  I am actually looking forward to going this morning but thought running with someone else would give me a bit of reassurance.  Will let you all know how I go.

Thanks again
