anything under 4:20 will be a PB !!
did 18 miles in 2.5 hours Sunday morning (in the cold and dark) so aiming for a sub 4 but the we'll have to see on the day how the old feet take running on the off tarmac bits
The only criticism I can come up with on the course it that if we make the finish at the pub on the uphill bit near the end then wecould see some impressive sprints
Anything under 5:19 will be a PB !!!!!
I'll miss a PB for a kiss at every gate!
I was looking for a cheeky marathon to finish off the year as feeling really fit having just done Lochness followed by Venice. This one is handy as near my folks, but has nothing on the website about registering. I take it this means it's full - anyone know if there's still a chance of getting a place?
Will have to cut down on the food now I am tapering off otherwise I will be carrying an extra half a stone come a week on sunday!
As long as its not windy raining i dont mind what temp it is!
OK, I have submitted an email enquiry, but will perhaps indicate that would be delighted to get a cancellation place to be in with a chance. Thanks!
Hi Tracy, I have an entry for Rutland Marathon if you are still looking for one. I can no longer take part as I have to go to Germany on same day due to work commitments. Let me know if you are interested.
number 566 for me... really looking forward to a marathon with no pressure (i.e. not as intense as bloody london)
got last lsr on sunday (a very easy 90 - 120mins) then only 2 more easy sessions next week...
just hope there is no rain - its looking promising... http://uk.weather.com/weather/10day-Oakham-LE15

Hi Tracy I have contacted Fat-Feet to see about transfer of entry and if there is a correct procedure. I will let you know as soon as I hear anything. If anyone else out there has already done this could they let us know how they went about it.
woke up with a shitty cold on sat morn... how rubbish...
must get rid of it before sunday...
gutted if i have to miss out after all that hard training...
A very enjoyable weekend for me down in London for the NFL. Limited myself to 2 beers and tried to avoid all the greasy food at the ground. Unfortunately by the time we had got out of wembley etc and got the tube to where we was staying the only thing open was a Macdonalds!!
Oh well a week of healty eating should get that out of the system come sunday!
Off for a 10/12 miler this aft to make up for the lack of running this weekend!
nice one jaseyshef, makes me feel a bit better... had a nice day on the sofa today and caught up with some well needed sleep and feel much better now so on the right road - lots of healthy food, water and MORE SLEEP and i should be good to go...
good luck everyone for sunday - see you at the finish line hopefully !
buck - No 566
Brian - plenty of vaseline on your feet should do the trick.
Hope the colds are starting to clear and that the taper niggles aren't proving too bothersome.
cheers for the info brian... and yeah the weather should be perfect sunday morn (fingers crossed)
cold almost gone apart from some extra snot that seems to refuse to go, but thats it so im pretty much on track !
does any one know if there is anywhere nearby that can be used for showering ? a leisure centre or something ?
