  • PeggyG, I have a Forerunner 235 and is by far the best GPS watch I've brought, I did have a charging problem at one point but I did a reset and all was working fine after. Sorry to hear you are having problems, just bad luck I guess.

  • It took 6 days for the soreness to leave my quads, stairs where a nightmare! Not run since the marathon but will have a go tonight. Going to do this again next year as I can't leave my PB as 3:00:01, definitely got a better time in me if I had a be…
  • Just seen that the results have been posted, my chip time was 3:00.01, I knew it was close not that close!
  • That's a great time StevieWh, I'll take a read of your report later. I still had some discomfort in my right calf before the race and had not done any running since the Tuesday before, I half expected not to make it round the track but thankfully …
  • My number is 748, good luck will for tomorrow 
  • Weather looks good too:
  • I'm slightly worried at the moment as I have picked up a sore calf, not normally an issue but it's been hanging around all week, it's better than it was though. Missed one session and might give tonight's one a miss also. Crossing fingers all will b…
  • StevieWh, yes I've tried gels before on some of my longer runs, I brought some shorts will loops for gel packs so will try then out this week for a trial run. How do I feel about the race? Extremely nervous but also excited! I prepared the best I …
  • 13 miles yesterday, ran it steady and was pleased as it was around 1:31, average hear rate was 147, that's 43 miles for the week. Going to buy some shorts that can hold gels, never needed them before. Cold almost completely gone, just a bit stuffed …
  • Thanks Hill1, decided that I will do an autumn marathon anyway, hotel prices and ridiculous and want to focus 10K
  • Sorequads, forgot to mention my last week. This is from P&D up to 55. Monday: Rest. Tuesday: 6 miles Wednesday: 7 Miles with 2 miles @ marathon pace Thursday: Rest.😀 Friday: 5 with 6x100 strides Saturday: 4 miles
  • bigballer69, was the 1:36 a training run or a race? Not sure the time predictor is going to be a good indication unless it is a time you've achieved while in a full marathon training plan and was a recent race. Is there a reason for the low recent m…
  • Thanks Sorequads, cold almost completely gone now so should be good for next Sunday. I ran planned VO2 max 8 miles with 3 X 1600 m @ 5K race pace on Wendnesday, this was fine, miles around 5:33 pace. Rest day yesterday and 5 recovery with 6 x 100 s…
  • Thinking about it, will see how Abingdon goes, does is sell out quick this one?
  • StevieWh, your right, just needed to hear it. Managed the planned recovery 7 miles with 8 X 100 strides and it was not too bad considering so can't complain, tomorrow I have 8 miles with 3 X 1,600 m @ 5K tomorrow, only slight deviation to the plan i…
  • Thanks LFSF, hope things get better, you never know, you may do better that you think. My head cold has almost gone but been coughing a lot last 2 days. I was really hoping to get the 16 mile run in but had to skip it, not sure what to do now. Nex…
  • Unfortunately I got a cold this week and feels like a bad one, hope it don't last too long. Managed runs on Tuesday and Wednesday, rest day yesterday, going to have to miss tonight's recovery run as lungs are sore. StevieWh, hope you long run on Su…
  • Got my Abo number in the post today, got butterflies in my stomach when I opened it, very excited for my first marathon. See there is a few on here that are also going also.
  • 9 seconds between you guys, you must have almost tripped each other up lol. Sorequads, great time considering the mileage, can't imagine doing 87M right now, 55 is the most I've done, must give you a lot of confidence. I may switch to P&D thread…
  • Well done on massive PB StevieWh, on runnersworld race time predictor, this equates to a 2:52 marathon so well on target. I did my last 20 mile run yesterday which brought my weekly total to 53 miles, found the 20 hard though, couple of hard sessio…
  • Good at luck Cheltenham StevieWh and Sorequads, let us know how you get on. Had a good week, groin issue seems to be completely gone now so done all sessions this week, actually feeling good, 33 miles done and 20 in the plan for tomorrow.
  • Sorequads, maybe you had the start of a cold when you did  Worcester 10K, might explain why you where not close to PB although 36.59 is still a cracking time, be interested to know what your 10K PB is? LFSF, I agree with Sorequads, just go really e…
  • 21 miles today, averaged 4:29 per km. Average heart rate 130 bpm, 55 miles for the week so really happy with that. 2 weeks to go before taper starts, very excited as getting close!
  • StevieWh, is 6:44 your target pace, sub 3? If so then that was a really good run, how hard did if feel and how big where the gaps between intervals? I did wonder about the P&D marathon pace runs, if it mattered if they where supposed to be in on…
  • LessFatStillFat, I've not done a marathon before so this is my first time and have not raced since last year so not really sure what sort of time to go for. I've seen a lot of advice for first timers but most common seems to be that to go out at a c…
  • Managed an 8 mile run on Tuesday and a 9 mile with 5 1K at 5K pace yesterday, groin feels good.  I saw Physio today who says all looks good now. Rest day today then a 12 mile tomorrow, may try and get another 20 miler on Sunday.
  • Actually feels much better today. I can cycle, did 1 hour on the bike in my local gym last week and did not seem to cause any problems, may do the same today.
  • Well done StevieWh, definately looks like your on for a sub 3. Unfortunately I've not run much last 2 weeks, had some quad discomfort that moved to groin which became obvious that I was going to do some serious damage if I continued running. Went …
  • Is the Cheltenham half fast? I can see that they are still accepting entries. In terms of travelling, Bristol and Cheltenham are about the same. Got a slight quad niggle right now so will take a few days out to recover fully. Sorequads, will defin…
  • StevieWh, what are the races you are doing? I've been looking but not finding much. May end up doing Swansea bay 10k but much further than I would like to travel. May do a park run next week, not done one before. There is also the Windsor half end o…
