btw - just while we're sharing (i'm gonna talk about food for a change) - i've got a leg of lamb in the oven on slooowwww roast, plan to serve it with Yorkies, mint sauce and trimmings
Ugh...that was pretty much the worst run of this training. Should have been 12 miles, but it short at 10.5 because we (Febo and moi) are both feeling pretty broken. Couldn't see any point in forcing another 3k to be honest. So that's been a full week of horrible running...hope next week feels better
PF - that's great news
Oh and Mr Maj has a cold. We have an old air raid shelter in the garden, I'm putting him in there for a few days.
Last medium-long run in the bag; 13 miles in the chilly sunshine at 5.50am. Ten times more pleasant running that early when it's actually LIGHT! Just three run's left to get before we jump on the plane....
Both me and the missus are doing the breakfast run, looking forward to it.
I've printed off everything I think I need to (with the exception of the Boarding Passes which we get emailed '30 hours before departure'), including directions/metro plans for everywhere I think we need to be. Reckon it's gonna be a bit hectic though, our 'travelling scehdule' once we arrive at CDG looks like this....
CDG to apartment (Batingnolles)
Apartment to Expo
Expo back to apartment (via somewhere for tea)
Apartment to breakfast run (dunno where it starts as yet)
Breakfast run finish to...?? No idea what we're doing for the rest of Saturday! Having tea at the apartment but clueless as to what to do inbetween. We're no particularly 'Sightseeing' people and I don't want to be on my feet all day....
Apartment to the Start
Finish to the apartment via a load of boozers
Apartment to Corcorans
Corcorans to apartment (in a drunken state)
Apartment to DISNEYLAND! Booked in for the Character Breakfast at 7.30am! Walking (or attempting to) round Disneyland, knackered and hungover, it'll be right....!

I'd like to come too. If I'm as nervous next Saturday as I am today, I'm going to need something to take the edge off!
Bedders - What time do you arrive at CDG on the Friday?? We arrive at 13.15 approx, and heading to the apartment and then expo, will also be doing the breakfast run on the Saturday, and marathon on Sunday............Stalker alert!!!!
Disney for us on the Thursday for eldests 14th Birthday........which is a slight de ja vu - we also spent her 7th birthday at Eurodisney.
Oh my lordy, it's as black as the night out there and it's chucking down golf ball sized lumps of ice....panic not, it's my rest day. Phew.
Paris was not looking good on the news last night - cold windy/wet. But Sunday was a tad better with sunny/showers. Fingers crossed.
Got 16k tomorrow yeah!
Back to my sofa and Radio Five Live....
enjoy Easter everyone
RS = Douglas Bertram. No wonder you didn't use your real name...

I feel knackered and woefully ill prepared for this marathon. Too many days missed due to injury. Although I have just hit 300km for the month. I'm hoping I've just got a touch of the Tapers...sigh....
yeah, it's the tapers. Your body is going WOOOHOOO recovery, now let's get this sorted and stop her running in the meantime. Embrace the tapir, it's good...although a little smelly and a bit mad.
DV could you add me to that list please....bib no. 33012 (very ambitiously in purple). Thanks!
I must be mad...........I know that I am thoroughly undertrained but for once I am not thinking I should of trained harder, more often as for once I know I have done as much as body was fit too........TAPER MADNESS must be in full on mode.........
Yer-maj- you have done an amazing amount of training, enjoy the rest of the taper!!
To relieve my stress I have just ordered new furniture for my living room.......Doesn't take much to excite me these days......
Now off to do 4 hr online tuturial.......
