  • Wise words on the self belief front and thanks for the advice Angela.
  • Nice work on the strength training GM.  I am still trying to do a little pre baby. Angela - if you have any advice... Minni - great report and well done Happy running all and thanks for all the good wishes!
  • Angela - Sorry to hear about the foot. I could be an ideal candidate for you.  Luckily my husband is v supportive and due to his work is home more than most so it's likely that I will have the time to exercise.  I know it's easy to say now but havin…
  • Speedy speedy thread...this bodes well GM. Nice to see what you have in store for you and really interested in Angela's input.  I plan on a 3.30 attempt the following year so this is exciting to follow. Maybe 262 will be back then! Malcs, Angela…
  • Thanks Sean and GM.  I regularly get overtaken at Parkrun by buggy runners.  They're my new idols!  
  • Sad to see the asics comp isn't running this year - is it the end of it for good do we think? At least you're here, GM, to carry on the marathon dreams.  Good luck to you.  I'll be following but not joining in as am 19 weeks pregnant.  I know I'll…
  • Soups - glad to hear you're on the mend and that the positivity is coming back with it.  Focus on the long game and that mara PB will be yours. I have been bimbling along post Spring mara.  Got a 10k PB at the Bristol 10k and have been improving m…
  • Andy - well done on MK.  Be proud! Soups - can't wait for the blog.  It's been really inspiring watching your progress.  Can't wait to see you smash the rest of those goals!
  • Well done on getting through it though Effilo! Fairyclogs - sounds like you had a great time, well done! Nice work on the Parkrun too Christian I really enjoyed the weekend with nothing to train for - got out on my bike and did a gorgeous 6 mi…
  • Good luck Effillo.  Try to find some positivity.  I felt pretty rubbish before last week's VLM due to the lack of training but once I decided to just enjoy the event I had a blast and was proud of the fact that my body managed to hold up!
  • BRB VLM was my third marathon and I think I managed to get round in time time I did because of the training over the previous couple of years so the Athens mara may well set you up for a PB opportunity next year! I can't decide whether to try an A…
  • Great right up BRB! Am so pleased you managed to enjoy the race in the second half, it really is very special!! Sub 3.45 next time?
  • Great write up as ever Tim! 
  • Morning All! I have to echo Tim in congratulating everyone on a stonking run yesterday!  I got to the bench but there was no one there so I pushed on to the start. At the beginning I had absolutely no race strategy but ran the first 11 miles wit…
  • Expo done first thing, carbs loaded (and still going) kit ready.... phew! hopefully see you at the bench tomorrow but if not, massive good luck.  I hope your race goes well. I forget how special this race is, we're privileged to be part of it. How…
  • Thanks Fairyclogs - yep am red!
  • And am still completely undecided as to my target time...maybe 4 hrs?! Maybe i'll just ride on Tim's cape - am sure he can take it now that he is SUPER SPEEDY!!!
  • Sorry Malcs! I'm bumbling around without any maranoia or ability to stress about Sunday now that I am not PB chasing!  I am excited though, I forgot how big VLM is and how interested everyone is in it, non runners included! I have a ballot place a…
  • Morning! Am hoping to make it! 52666 - can't remember which start but am in an orange and black MS vest with Sophie on it!
  • I'm 52666 Heading to the expo sat morning...with all my payday pennies!! I've added you all to my app - now I know all of your real names! The forum comes to life!  
  • Good luck to everyone running VLM on Sunday.  It will be my second time and 3rd mara.  My training has been rubbish so instead of worrying about time I'm aiming to enjoy it...if that's possible. I love it when I ran it 3 years ago as it was my fir…
  • So grear checking in on Monday morning and to read about all the awesome running! Massive congrats on the parkrun PB Soups. Huge cheers on the marathon success for Malcs, Gingermagic, Hans and Martin.  Champions all!
  • Awesome report Tim, you did the comp proud!  No doubt you're still on cloud 9 to boot as well. What's the strategy for VLM?  I might get to see you there!
  • Massive well done to Soups, Sense and Fairyclogs and all who ran marathons this weekend. Congrats to Karen too! So pleased for everyone. Soups - can't wait for the write up!
  • Have an awesome weekend Superman! You have had such an amazing journey - both ups and downs and I really hope that your marathon is all that you could hope for. Enjoy every last second and then tell us all about it! Bon Chance!
  • Glad you were well prepped for the haircut Tim...and made it through! Andy - hope the foot gets better. Malcs- love the nonchalance about your marathon...just saunter down and see what amazing time you can smash out eh?! Still recovering from …
  • Soups! The countdown is on...hope you are flying around in excitement! I have been struck down with the lurgy (maybe what Mrs Soups had?) and have been in bed all Easter weekend.  It's been made more miserable by the fab weather.  It makes me realis…
  • It's so lovely to read all the positivity on here.  Tim - we're all rooting for you to smash 3.30 in Paris. I think the way my training has gone down the pan, will be hopeful of scraping a PB at VLM.  I'm a bit grumpy today as am feeling pretty ru…
  • Morning! Soups, massive well done on the parkrun PB.  Big high 5 to Angela as well.  Great stuff. My half at Yeovil yesterday was v wet and windy and far hillier than I was led to believe.  I finished in 1:50 which is far off my best.  I felt pr…
