Brighton Marathon 2015

Posted: Today at 09:19

Did you do what I did on the gulp thread toby and pressed submit twice?? 

After training for my two marathons, over the winter,it's been nice to go and run just for runnings sake ...

Thursday I did just over 5 miles, then yesterday morning and this morning, I've gone running with the dogs around our meadow which if you go round twice it's 3:38 miles....I think the dogs enjoy it too ...

Jooligan.....I think most of us are guilty of starting far to fast....I did AGAIN!!! Which in hind sight cost me my 4:10 I was aiming for,did 4:13 which was still a pb by over 10 mins!!

Well I've got a vest on with wrist bands and short lines!!! Not good when I have my son's wedding this Friday ha ha ..

Well went for a lovely 5:20 mile run yesterday,have to say,felt really fresh, left the Garmin at home and just ran which was nice to do to...

Have a week of non stop getting ready for my son's wedding on Friday what with hair and nail fingers and toes appointments, then dress buying tomorrow...

Goodness knows how my daughter in law to be feels, she has organised the whole thing!! Down to what the flower girls are wearing in their hair,and earrings for bridesmaids...all my family are involved and I'm even witnessing the register signing!!! Gonna be an emotional day as gemmas dad died in January, so her two young sons who are 3 and 5 are walking her down the aisle ....

Glad your running and walk training is going well Mel , my mum has done the c2c too...

Waves to Toby and B&T

I think it's time I started running again, I didn't know how my body would react to two marathons in a week, but it seems to have taken them in its stride, no trouble climbing up or down stairs, or walking .....so I may venture out with my boys (a border collie,and a German shepherd cross) for a little 3:5 mile plod around a big field twice in the morning!! 

Tillstar, nice to see your enjoying your running again....

I always go to city centre premier inn,I went on line and booked two days ago and when you look it says full but if you put arrival Sat,then options for adults kids etc it came up with Sat night for £75 although it did say the price for the Saturday had gone up (I wonder why) then Sunday and Monday were £100 between them...you don't then have to pay until arrival unlike Travelodge you have to pay up front ...

I didn't think I'd run as well as I did in London,I felt really fresh after doing a pb in Brighton the week before...

Alan ,don't get me wrong,I enjoyed the whole London experience and the crowds were noisy but I thought the crowds at brighton were more personal cheering your name...even at the power station end people kept cheering,my charity were also down that end to so that gave me a boost ...

Perhaps if I was near the front in London and not in pen 8 of 9 I may have enjoyed the experience more,but looking where I put my feet on every step to avoid bashing into people,being tripped,nudged,and trodden on wasn't my idea of fun!!! 

Wenty,hope your knees recover quickly, and it's always very sad to hear of fatalities after any sporting event....a bit of a shock to see it so close though I can imagine ..

Hellooooo I'm back from my week of madness...brighton as usual was ace as you all know my pb was gotten a shiny 4:13

London, I wanted to enjoy it,and do a sub 4:30 got round in 4:27 ,I've got major tan lines was a tad warm ....going over tower bridge was unforgettable, canary wharf high and shiny,big Ben and parliament formidable,the crowds noisy 

I ran both marathons for Parkinson's UK and their support in both marathons was second to none ...

I've done london now,and I hope I don't sound ungrateful but I wouldn't want to do it again, my idea of fun isn't getting my heels run on,nudged,or nearly tripped several times, far too many runners for my liking....even the 4:30 runners world pacer I ran the first 12 miles with said it was busy and he was surprised it hadn't thinned out by mile 6 ,we had to play catch up as mile 3 was 11:11
