EHN - P & D is Pfitzinger and Douglas. They brought out a book called Advanced Marathoning which is very detailed - and a bit complicated - but includes a number of plans.
They definately do not belong to the 'Run Less...' school - in fact I cannot fit in some of the midweek mileages that make up their plans. This is why it is only part of my plan.
Thanks Orbutt -by the sounds of it my Less and Faster is much more me
Berlin Marathon App
This might be of interest to some..though you'll have to cut and paste (can't seem to attach link) or it can be found on the Berlin Marathon Site under 'service'
If anyone hasn't booked accomation yet, try looking at apartments, 4 of us are going and they are a lot cheaper than hotels. Flying out Fri from Manc, coming back Monday evening. 2nd marathon, and looking forward to it.,
Anyone on the Lufthansa flights from Manchester, I have just had an email to advise of change of times from late evening to Lunchtimes
Thanks EHN for the link, tho I can't download the app on mine as my phone is obviously not smart enough!
Sir John and dawsey67 , I'm flying out of Manchester on Friday too, although I've just got yet another email from Lufthansa with yet another change in flight times!!! Good news is I now managed to get direct flights with them that is of a sensible time . Until the next Lufthansa email....
Good luck dawsey67 with the London training. I'm looking forward to my 2nd of 6 Parkrun tomorrow to get in the chance for a VLM place!
Yup - got the change of times email too.
No major problem, just a bit annoying that they keep changing things
I haven't had an email from Lufthansa about the Manc flights this time. What's the change?
I now look to be going at 8:55am Friday via frankfurt and coming back direct on Tuesday at 11:05. Is that still correct?
DLR - my previous return flight was the only direct option and was 19.30. Now it is 11.05
Cheers lads. Yes, I think I remember it being 19:30 and thinking that would give some time to relax in Berlin. Ah well.
I've managed to change my Manchester flights to both direct (which was the original plan!), now leaving at a more decent times of 12:55 from Man and 11:05 from Berlin. My aerophobic other half is very happy ....until the next change!!!
Interesting Sticky, didn't know there was a 12.55 out. Bet they'd charge me to change, but that would probably get in at similar time to the 8:55 via Frankfurt!
DLR, I phoned them and said my original flights were direct before they started changing things about, said I noticed the 12:55 direct, and they changed mine to that without further questions!
Was this recently?
DLR, I called them the same day the most recent email came through on friday 30 Nov, started the conversation with: I have just received ANOTHER email from you...
No Ice and Snow in the North West of England but still damn cold
No ice and snow in Yorkshire, crispy dry and ccccold!
Love the name Orbutt!
...London chilly...no ice ...
fudge me the easyjet flights are up now and the prices have gone through the roof so i'm glad i went with Lufthansa back along.
My bloody flight have been changed which means I possibly won't get the connection home.
Sorry to hear what going on with you all the flights
Husband and I now firmly sat on the Injury Bench ..decided not to go for the matching Harold and Hilda matching Christmas jumpers and opted for matching knee complaints instead
