3.40 hey? Sam...thats a good time.!
well i did that last year on fresh legs...this year i tried my first double marathon.! one on saturday.! a very tough hilly one and then Chester....weird feeling, finding yourself running again the day after a marathon ( that incidently had turned into almost a 29 miler.! )
But what better race ( always the sun shines) to feel in need of encouragment in ,other than the Chester. :O).
Seems everyone agrees, its a greatly well organised event.

antibiotics/tooth abscess

Posted: 03/08/2013 at 11:40

I have been on Antibiotics for a week for a very bad tooth abscess, its gone down now, but i also took a shed load of painkillers at the beginning of the week too ,and didnt eat that much..feeling better ish now...although still have a small lump there .
My Dentist said it would be ok to run the marathon i have booked tomorrow (4th) , but as a personal trainer i am not too sure whether that advise is simply based on the the tooth, and not my overall strength.!?   haha.
I have looked all over the net, and some say its been ok (smaller distance),some say not because the body is fighting infection (of course)..
but with it being tooth?  i wanted to ask hardened runners too
I know many people with chest infections will say do not run, and quite rightly, but i just want to know if anyone has ran a marathon or half  in this situation before?
( my race only has to be steady, its not a competitive one btw )

Shrewsbury Marathon

my Garmin clocked 26.6
yeah shame...water stations ran out of water after about 2 hours, tap water was offered ( i do not drink tap unfortunately ,so that took some effort to get a bottle) also, am i correct in saying that after and before even 2 hours was passed from start time that many of the water stations packed up completely?
The start was more then delayed...what was it ? 20 mins?
The loop backs near the start where a bad idea in my opinion.
And who sponsored the race? high 5? so where were the high 5 gels etc?
Seems this race catered for the half marathon ok but then wanted to pack it up..
Shrewsburys people and support were great though, and the route wasnt too bad other than the loop back part.
The medals were not good imo...  full marathon same as half ,with wording half and full marathon??   no no no ...full marathon should have a better quality than that, especially for entry fee price...i think they must have spent alot on the coaches supplied for park and ride to half a mile from the start.!
Nice start area , but shame we couldnt run past the portaloos each time, then alot of people wouldnt have to have either gone behind bushes or spent many minutes going off to them and then back to the course.
A good idea would have been a half way timing chip mat too.
A big big medal would have appeased me.
