I note themp is looking at a 3:05, so I'll be hoping to be right on his heels (I've decided not to risk pushing for anything faster on my 2nd mara). But in real terms CC2 is far faster!
Lovely set of 400s last night to blow the jitters out of the legs. I can't wait to get into short, fast summer training!
ermm 16 sleeps to go
Added to the list Kate.
I'm getting really excited as I have so much on next week, finishing with the VLM. I'm in my element when I am busy and organising stuff.
*waves at Straycelt*
You're not popping in to steal our secrets are you? Group 3 is going to be the best group on the day and you cannot sabotage us!
It weill be quite a wagon train gathering with the runners included as well
Now NO ONE is to do any singing between now and after VLM - GOT THAT
I want a nice gentle suntan to develop all day

Mr Celt you are only up the road abit I will seek you out
I will go and look at the long range forcast - my good waterproof jacket needs well waterproofing
Hello group 3
Not posted much recently as work has gone horribly wrong and it looks like I will be made redundant on the 26th April. I has certainly taken my mind off the big day
Still been training but have picked up bit of a cold, hopefully I can shake it off before next weekend.
oooh only seven days to go ....eeekkkk
Sorry to hear about the job TommyGun it isn't easy out there still - I hope it works out OK soon
Rest up vit C and Zinc lots offluid I am sure you will be OK next Sunday
What is it with pre-marathon illness, I went down with a cold/ flu mid-week, maybe my swim, cycle, run over the weekend was too much.
Several days on the sofa, now hopefully I'm on the road to recovery and have a week to build my strength back up. Let's hope it will work out well on the day
Supercaz ...Thanks for letting me join group 3 so late in the day
I'll be wearing Green Macmillan vest , race number 3134 with name LOUIE on it
hope to be at mile 17 around 170 minutes (12.50?) but its my first ever marathon so may be slower!
Will leave gel at expo. I'll try and attach pic later
I've got a very busy week next week so I will try to continue to pop in but might not be able to make everyday.
Jordie, pre-marathon illness is normal. It's because you have worn your body out with all the hard training and your immune system is weak. That's why taper is so important as it gives your body time to regain strength. Otherwise you would be going into your marathon feeling at your worst. Have confidence that it will be alright on the day.
Tommygun, that's really bad timing with the news, but I guess there is never good timing for that sort of thing.
