Berlin Marathon 2013

    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.

    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.,

  • EHN. Thanks for posting info about the app. Have downloaded it already and saw the details of the breakfast run. It finishes in the Olympic stadium!
  • Reference booking apartments booked through air bnb last year.Plenty of choice and great prices...Like Sir John 4of us going out on The Friday but not coming back till Wednesday.On the running,trying to get 50 miles a week in upto Xmas then gradually build ready for London in April.happy running all.
  • 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 image. 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

  • Bugger just had same email art 1155 fri leaving 11.05 mon. Was hoping to spend mon in Berlin. Oh well,
  • Birmingham flights changed as well,nothing to drastic though..good luck with the park run tomorrow sticky,might see you in London yet...
  • Flight back to Brum via Munich on Sunday buggered so having to delay for a couple of hours and come back via Frankfurt. Oh well, more time for more post run German beer then......
  • 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?

  • If flying from Manc, that's the times rob
  • OrbuttOrbutt ✭✭✭

    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 image....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?

  • Been doing fell running recently, anyone else used this as part of training ? Got a great race next week, Stockport 10 to see if its improved me
  • 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...

  • Many Lufthansa emails. I don't think I've ever had this before from an airline - again I'm not sure I've ever booked flights this far in advance before though...!

    Anyway, Paris training already a week behind. Monday to start. Hopefully!

    Hope everyone's staying safe on the ice and snow.

    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 ice ...

  • Ugh the person I booked a room with via airbnb has cancelled -.- can anyone recommend a cheap place to stay?
  • 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.image

    Sorry to hear what going on with you all the flightsimage

    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
