Djokovic to win

Wish the Beeb and other News Agencys would remember that Virginia Wade won in 1977 so not exactly 77 years since the last British winner

But apart from that Well done Andy

First half Tips

Start closer to the back,as you don't want to be pushed out of the way by faster Runners and its always nice overtaking slower Runners/Those who went off to fast

If you need to walk get over onto the pavement / side of the road and don't just stop as someone could collide with you

Throw your water as far away from the road as you can (don't want a fellow Runner tripping up over your empty bottle)

The most quoted bit of advice I heard prior to my first race ...don't go too quick,get your pace right and you will finish in good shape

Run Mile to Mile don't think too far ahead,worry about the mile you are running

Think to yourself (bit of Psychology here) it's not how far you have to go but how far you have gone ...so halfway isn't 6.6 miles to go but 6.6 miles completed

Most of all enjoy,whatever time you complete will be a PB so no pressure

Holidays - To run or not to run?

Football instead of a short run?

Thanks for all the input guys, really appreciate it. 

I need to give it some more thought as it didn't cross my mind about increased chances of injuries. The football is a fairly lighthearted affair with work colleagues, but there's still twisting/stretching etc.


Last time I played with Work Mates it was never lighthearted,I think for Marathon training the LSR is the one you cannot skip

Maternity leave is an excuse for mums to do nothing!

I would be interested to know how many new fathers took more than 2 weeks paternity leave.

I would but as I am starting a new job later this month so I will just stick with the two weeks (Baby due in September)

Me,Mrs Warkie and three kids (Nephew,Neice and Son) just throwing a ball to each other,trying not to drop it at Tatton Park last year ...also played football with my seven year old Nephew on the beach at Crosby,no pressure just kicking it to each other ....

You played football with your nephew? 

That's cruel. You should use a football instead.
