Shades - hope your heel gets better soon.
Steve - I agree on the difficulty of getting to the B'ham Marathon. The organisers should have made the start times for the 2 marathon waves and hour or two later to allow people to use trains or trams. I am still planning to drive there, the other option is getting a taxi to the stadium. I'm just concerned I may not be in a fit state to drive after the race. My family will drive to Wednesbury Parkway tram sop and get the tram into B'ham town centre later on so they can be there to see me at the finish.
I will run my 5 mile Tempo run later today, and the 14 miler on Sunday. I keep thinking about how many gels to take during the marathon. On last 20 miler I had one at 5, 10, and 15 miles, but by the 17 mile point I was getting very hungry. I know I will have eaten more on the marathon morning and the days before but currently thinking of taking a gel every 4 miles during the race. Also taking some Percy Pigs and jelly beans.
