Cal - hope your are back running very soon. I had a back problem (slipped disc) a couple of years back around Christmas time and I was so frustrated at not being able to run for a few weeks. But it wasn't long before I could start doing some gentle runs and ran the Stafford HM in early March.
Jelly - Your 10K time is similar to mine, my PB was 48.50 a couple of years back, but endurance has been the problem with me. I wonder if I am more suited to shorter distances. I managed a 5K parkrun in 21:15 about 3 years ago (still unsure how I managed it). But in recent months I have just concentrated on building up endurance ready for B'ham. I am so excited about my first marathon, but nervous at the same time. I have even been dreaming about it.
I plan to drive to the stadium in my wife's car, ten my wife and daughters will get the metro into B'ham town centre to do a bit of browsing in the shops and then see me at the finish.
