NellyP, I'm not going to be sub 3, nowhere near, unless we have a decent summer & I get some training motivation. My first marathon is on 29th June in Dorset, and it's up, down, up, down & repeat for 26 miles. Time limit is 7 hours, so I'll be delighted with 6.59.59!!!!!
This is my first marathon so I'll be hoping just to finish!
First run this evening after my 3 week rest (as recommended by Physio, do I get a gold start for doing what I was told for once!!!), couple of miles felt good to be out again, hip held up ok, but fast (about 1:30 below training pace). I've always had a problem with training too fast so obviously need to get back to practicing running slowly.
Good to be back.
Heard good things about this one , worth the trip up from London?
Just wondering like Kev10 is this one as good as people say?
Just received an email from Travelodge saying the Chester Central Delamere Street Travelodge (where I had a room booked the night before the marathon) is closing at the end of August. Anyone else booked in there should probably check their emails: you are able to transfer to other Chester travelodges for no additional cost.
Just did the Brighton MArathon, my first. Loved it. Looking for my next challenge.
I too would be travelling up from London. Is the overall experience good? Organisation, hotels etc? Is it a fast or particularly challenging course?
Thanks for the reply Scott - signed up today and looking forward to it , just need to dust off the trainers and start all the hardwork now.
thanks scott i have alos signed up today.
I hear it is a fast course?
Is there a chance this marathon will sell out?
Cheers for the advice fellas - I'm in!
Scott , I would like to aim for somewhere around 3hr 40 marker but seem to have a love hate thing going on at the moment with this distance , did Loch Ness in October last year and came home in just over 4 hours and wasnt feeling too great even though i thought my training went ok , might have to change things up abit .
What time are you aiming for?
I put my time down as 4hr 30 on my entry form, but I hoep to break 4hrs..
Well done Jason Have paid, entered and started training for Chester. This will be my second as did London last year. Hope I wont be last-lol Do have COPD and it slows me a bit.
Nice to hear Steve
