I've actually spun up to 26 already this year on 6th Jan in China clocking 4:48 which I was dead pleased at as I needed a sub 4:50 for summat else, and, a fortnight later I made the local newspaper being a bit daft as Batman in a local half clocking 2:09. Its been difficult to capitalize on that for the last couple of weeks and I haven't got out at all, hoping to address that this weekend and the next few weeks.
I'm running Boston 3 weeks prior to London, although I should admit that's in Lincolnshire, put it in as a safety net in case I didn't crack 4:50 in Xiamen. Thankfully though I can treat both that and London as training runs now, party, party, so definitely looking to dress up as something entertaining in London.
Sounds like everyone is in really good shape already! Great going folks
Hi Stu, welcome aboard, the starts are all within easy reach of each other, just a bit of a stroll, I think from your runner number you can tell which one, but also from how you got your place as well, I'm not up on that but I bet someone on here will have a good idea if it is a club place.
So do you run a bit already? You are in a club so do you go there plenty of nights per week? Depending how big they are they might have access to someone who could take a look at your foot. If it were a non-club runner asking I'd be looking at your shoes. How long have you had them, and, have you significantly upped the mileage you do in them recently, it could be as simple as getting a good new pair appropriate for marathon running.
There are still a good few weeks left before the big day so you have time to get some training in and have a comfortable grand day out
Prince, last year I was Mary Quant, was so pleased when I got a shout out of that going through Docklands
This year I fancy appearing as Lt Gay Ellis from Gerry Anderson's UFO, but that is a big ask, can I get that thin and can I find an outfit like this...
I hope that wasn't too much information! My appearances are meant to be "stupid bloke makes a bad attempt at..." no body hair is lost (apart from chafing), no makeup is applied, but I do stretch to a wig and trying to get the costume to look the part. These antics help with my charity collection, the girls at work fall about laughing at my antics and "bribe" me to "go further" each time with their donations (at least that is one of my excuses - I suppose I am not complaining at having to do this either!)
Hi Stu, you are obviously well on the road to completing a marathon, great training, even with a bit of a break, you will be able to pick up and be in great shape on the day. Numbers come out in a few weeks I think. Best if you have someone take a look at that foot, I can't figure anything more specific from what you have said
