  • TopSec said: Rossi, where do you find how many people you overtook? It was on the results bit of the marathon website. You then go onto results display and it shows you there. Some interesting information. 
  • Feeling quite good today actually. Feet are the only thing which is really bothering me. Just had a look at the marathon website and over the last 7.2k I passed 2,184 people, was genuinely surprised by this. Memories of the crowd will never leave me…
  • Got round in 4 hours 34 which I was happy with. Ran the whole 26.2 which I wasn't expecting after the recent injuries. Crowd support was unbelievable and made the day so much better 
  • Nice gentle 3.5 miler tonight. Same again tomorrow then that's me until Sunday. Got the Physio on Thursday which will be a boost. Also found out I won a spot on the Buxton memory lane at 12 miles which will be a nice boost running 80 meters with my …
  • Think cross training might be the best for me up until next Sunday. Slight niggle in my right thigh has returned. Don't want to aggravate it and make it worse before the marathon. 
  • Hope the Physio helps you Katie. Got round the 13.1 kilomathon course yesterday in 1:07:52. Leg felt good on the way round which gave me a nice bonus. Feeling a bit sore and stiff today but I've got my foam rollering and stretching still to do so ho…
  • Yeah Physio did help me Katie. He realised I had slight leaning to my right which was causing problems. He's fixed that and also gave me exercises to do and 'touchwood' I'm fine now. It's certainly been better since I've been to see him
  • I'm in the same boat as you Katie. Sounds like we're on the same training plan too. Done 18 and felt really comfortable and felt I could do more. Been struggling with my right leg so been resting it last week. Was at the Physio on Friday and I've be…
  • Managed to get out and do a gentle 4 miles after my niggle with my right leg. Felt much better and fitness felt good too. Didn't get my 20 miles in this week. Just going to keep on working hard and get the runs in. My training plans say tapering sta…
  • First time I've ever been down in London actually is when I'm doing the race. We've got a hotel booked near Marylebone station. It looks ok on the maps for the trains to get to that start and also not too far away after the race as well. Has anyone …
  • Leg still feels tight and sore. It is better than what it's been. Think I'll need to keep on resting it over next week and hope it improves. I'll continue the foam rollering and see if that helps. My longest run was 18 miles last weekend. If I don't…
  • No running this weekend due to my right thigh/it band being sore. Doing my foam rollering exercises and Iceing as well. Hopefully clears up soon
  • Really sore and tight right thigh stopped me from going out tonight. Pain seems to be moving around my thigh. No sure what's happened. Really frustrating. Think a few days rest will help before my longest runs next week. 
  • Done a enjoyable 18 miles this morning. Was pretty windy but got round in just under 3 hours. Glad I took last night off as I felt quite good today. 
  • Hard 9 miles in windy conditions last night. Feeling a bit sore and tender today though. Was meant to be doing 5 miles tonight but giving that a miss and onto 18 miles on Friday for my long run this week. Weather forecast isn't looking too great for…
  • Thanks again Rodeo that does sound pretty amazing. Countdown is well and truly on. Got a 9 miler tonight after work on quite a hilly course so looking forward to that. Just another quick question. If I miss a training run here or there before the ma…
  • Feel quite inspired after that post Rodeo. Thanks for that :-). Training is going well at the moment. Done a step down to 12 at the weekend and felt really comfortable doing that. Up to 18 for my long run on Friday. I've been using a foam roller rec…
  • Smashed my fundraising target over the weekend :-). Done a nice 8.5 miler in the wind last night. Quite a hilly course too so was a tough shift but really enjoyed it. Got a 12 miler this weekend. Nice come down from 16 last week then up to 18 next w…
  • Nice 8 miler planned for tonight. Done 15 at the weekend and got 16 planed for Saturday this week. Only planning on doing 1 20 miler before the big day. Done this last time and it seemed to work. Broke though my fundraising target last weekend too w…
  • Done 15 miles yesterday and felt comfortable doing it. Gave me a massive boost of confidence too :-). Hopefully hitting my fundraising target this weekend too so that would top it off. Hope everyone else is doing well too. 
  • Nice one. London will be my 2nd. Done Edinburgh 3 years ago and felt this was the right time to go again. I got back into running last year and done the GSR half marathon and quite a few 10ks and then the opportunity of London came up which I though…
  • Thanks Steven all the best to you too for your training for Stirling. Is it your first marathon or you done one before?
  • Thanks tricialitt. Training is going well at the moment so hopefully continues that way. I've got nothing planned at the moment but I'll need to look into it 
  • Hi guys, I'm based just outside Edinburgh, just been having a quick read through the last few pages and its good reading :-). I'm doing the London Marathon in April, so just working towards that. Done 13 miles at the weekend and got a nice 7 miler t…
  • I done 13 miles on Saturday past in the wind and snow. Was a tough slog, but got through it ok. Character building I would say :-). Training plan says back down to 10 miles this week for my Long Run, so preparing for that. Enjoying the runs during t…
  • I've been having a small problem with a pain on my right foot. It's right beside the ball of my foot just under my big toe. It's painful to put any weight on it and it hurts when I walk. Has anyone else had a problem like this?
  • VLM will be my second marathon after Edinburgh a few years back. I'm in the same boat with the mindset of not trying to do every run as a time trial. I'm learning to start to forget about that and just get the miles in. I've got a running routine ea…
  • My cross training has usually been consisting of going to the gym and jumping on the bike. I do enjoy it. I'm not too keen a cyclist but do enjoy the bike at the gym
  • 9 miles done on Saturday. Got round in 1 hour 24 Mins. Really enjoyed the route and had a few hills thrown in. It good to get back into the routine of training for the marathon again. Done some cross training yesterday at the gym. What type of acti…
  • Good to hear everyone's stories. Wasn't out as much over Xmas and new year as I wanted so some work is required again. Was up at a good mileage before the break so hopefully haven't lost too much. Done the 5k winter run around Holyrood Park yesterda…
