Trainings not going well, i fell down the stairs at home (i was sober!), and have bruised ribs/hip and twisted and bruised ankle.
I'm not able to run at the minute, damn i can hardly walk so i think i will try for the half only!!
Hope everyone else is having better luck.
Trying an 18 miler with 14 at marathon pace sunday-will be a toughy without anyone breathing down my neck!
Just hoping to stave off those niggly pains from full blown injury for last couple heavy weeks.
WHR-lots arnica and gin would be my prescription!!
I have had to pull out of the Venice marathon the week after this on October 25th because of a bridge phobia.
Am looking for another marathon to do . Can you give me any information abou this Its not on Marathon guide .com
I would have to fly out of Dublin on saturday and arrive at about 7.30pm. Flight back ont eh sunday is about 6pm.
Is it accessible to the airport? Is it flat , hilly , etc. Big crowds> any information would be great. website doesnt say much about it.
Thanks in advance.
This is a flat marathon part along the seafront and then through palma. Temp 15-20 degrees so hopefully not too uncomfortable! Do not know about amount support but hopefully enough!!
Am just going for weekend and think you could make on the timing of your flights. Not sure about accessibility of airport but am flying in to palma airport so taking a taxi to expediate things.
Quite a few oversea runners-mainly german and british.
Hope to see you there!!
not long left now till the big day!!!
iv just recieved a letter saying that there was a prob with money takan from my visa,and for me to pay into another account!! but the day later recieved my confimation email with number and all info??!!has any one else had this letter???
looking forward to to my first san miguel after the race allready
see u all on the startin line the 17th
brimps, Might just give this serious consideration. They take entries up to the day before So I might just see how training goes and maybe rush in at the last minute.
Wll keep you followed here anyway.
I have received no letter just the confirmation e-mail. Perhaps a clarification e-mail to the organisers?
Not long now!!
I did contact the organisers, as payment had not been taken (it now has) and have also received confirmation email. I received a reply to my query two days after I had emailed them, the contact given was:
Nadine Schack TUI Marathon Palma de Mallorca Runners Support Service c/o eichels: Event GmbH Leinstr. 31 D-30159 Hannover firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm out, i have a tear in my glutes and tear in my right hamstring and nerve damage after falling down the stairs last week, still sore to walk and have been told by the physio no running for 6- 8 weeks. So my weekend in Palma now consists of supporting and drinking san miguel.
Good luck to you all!! WR
WR- bad luck-hope you recover quickly-always another race/year so enjoy the down time
I have developed a cold which has made legs feel like concrete so severely reduced mileage this week-hoping it won't derail things too long as so near and still couple heavy weeks to fit in!!
Have managed to book a hotel within crawling distance of the finish line as think I am going to need it!
WR - It's going slowly rather than well and I've droppd down to the half marathon now as I've had various ailments that have knocked training on the head, including the most recent an annoying cough that won't shift.........
Looking forward to the week away though..
Seems like a lot of injuries going around, thoug I guess we're into the "danger period" of training now!
I'm still up for the full 26.2 miles - and am hoping it won't be me vs thousands of Germans, (I've looked at the results from last year and there seems to be A LOT of them)
I'll be in my Fetch vest, doing it for the UK and probably found near some establishment serving san miguel or corona near the finish
I'll be starting the 26.2 with you GeeForce, I just hope I finish it! Training going okay, enjoyed the Great North Run despite the torrential rain afterwards.
I'm looking forward to the weekend that much, I've tagged along an extra day! Returning back to Manchester on the Tuesday night now, so plenty of time for a few San Miguels! I'll deserve them.
