Great to see Malc's thread is still going. Mine has now gone quiet.

Hope you are well Malcs - sorry I couldn't get to the Parkrun the other week.

Hi everyone,

Sorry it's been a while since I've been here. School is extremely busy at this time of year. Nobody has posted since 30/04 so I'm drawing this thread to a close.

I won't be posting in this thread again unless there is a question from someone.

I'll lurk around the other posts now

Best wishes and see you around - oh and good luckk to the next Asics crew.

OKay - well not sure what to do with this thread now. I could keep it going. I've started training for the Swansea Half Marathon. I'm blogging about it here:


Looking forward.

I've entered because it is on my doorstep. My fastest half was only 2:10 and that was at the Asics training day (so unofficial). I'll probably be last. As it's the first one in Swansea I hope the organisers have a good one so that it grows to be as big or bigger than Cardiff.

It has now sold out so good luck everyone.

Really happy with the video - thanks Runner's World for putting such an emotional journey into 5 minutes

Well I'm back to normal. A tough circuit session tonight and I feel amazing. I thought it would be harder than it was. The upper body was tough but the legs went fine.

Running on Thursday now.

Hi All - been away in the caravan for a few days so apologies for no posts. Don't want the regulars thinking I've run away now the competition is closed. I suppose eventually I will close this thread from my side and just contribute on other posts but not yet.

MacFinbob: I still have not run. I'm starting the feel the need so the mind seems to be in good shape. I might go out for a 5k this evening - maybe even shorter.

Chris Hob: I'll take a look later this evening when I finally sit down with my laptop.

Pete: Thanks pal. It's been three weeks now and I'm finally ready.

Tuesday - not been for any sort of run since the marathon. Is this right? Is this wrong? I don't feel like running.

I'm not quite sure how I'm meant to feel. Can any experienced marathon runners tell me?

Should I feel like running soon? I feel the need to get out there, but I don't feel the passion for it at the moment.

Any advice appreciated.

Isabelabos: Thank you for your kind words. 

booktrunk: Thank you. I agree and have since risen from my fed up-ness about the time. My Autumn marathon will be a lot faster if I can get my arse in gear.

Ruth: Thank you. Gutted we will not be in touch again. I’ll send you a quick email this week.

LMActive: Seems my report touched a few people. Several members of staff in school commented on it as well - I didn’t know they read it

Andy: Been a long time since we sat in that motorway services eating a healthy meal 19 or so weeks ago. The weekend was very special, as was the marathon. I’m chuffed that I popped my marathon cherry in Paris. I wonder where my next one will be? Will you be entering the Asics competition again next year?

NTGNR: Thank you Sir. I will indeed share my next one.
