  • Great great race, was about 10-15 mins slower than I would have liked, needed to stop at 16 for a loo break, decided to miss the queues and shot into a Thai restaurant, I sort of went flying in and said "can I use the loo?"  They very kindly said ye…

  • Dadagain, It's forecast to be cold on Sun morning and you'll feel it more than others maybe!  I would head to your nearest charity shop and buy a sweatshirt and keep it on until your pen starts moving, there'll be hundreds of things getting thrown t…

  • Sumacrae, If you're near the finish line you can't be far from either Leicester Square or Covent Garden which are packed with restaurants.  Wander up and take your pick!!  Loads of Italian ones if it's pasta based you're after

  • I'm having the same issue with my niece and her boyfriend travelling down from the North on the train, due in KX at 12 noon, whether we pick their numbers up for them and whether we assume they'll be in reasonably on time and we collect them and dri…
  • Forget what I posted now, so apologies if Im repeating myself!  10 mile race last weekend, not good, niggle in ankle (same as Dec marathon) so walked some of it as I was so paranoid about making it worse!  Stupidly it may have been the way I was lac…

  • Obviously a bit far out yet but weather for 23rd is saying max 14 deg, sunshine and cloud, hardly any rain and 30% chance of rain.  I'll take that

  • PF Mike?  Pretty serious if that's what it is.  Not sure if it would disappear during your run so maybe not.   Pace bands are no good for me, at my age I can't read them!! 10 mile race today, ankle pain that I had during my Dec marathon came back …

  • 22 miles last Sunday. Very slow. Not run since as we're away. I'm confident about getting round London although I think the chances of a PB are zero.

  • I've just discovered my niece's magazine hasn't arrived (it's her first time so she wasn't aware they were out).  I guess if she calls them tomorrow and explains they will send another out or do it via email?
  • Just popped in to say "Hello Shades"  Running London again this year, are you?
  • Sarah, my advice would be to do 16.  If you feel good and injury is not bothering you, add on an extra mile or so.  Be careful of jumping up too much in one run though.  It really is a question of how you feel during the run. My first marathon coac…

  • 17 miles for me this weekend, split into 3 separate legs as part of a 200 mile relay team.  Ran easily a minute faster than my estimated time per mile.  The night time run (01:00) I hit miles with an 8 at the front of them!?!  Boiling temps and high…

  • I spend a lot of time in Texas and run a number of races here but God they are expensive.  I did a half a few weeks ago and it was $108 to enter plus an online booking fee of $15!!  I didn't enter but bought a number (legally) off someone else for h…

  • Sorry CHSDOC, missed the final page and didn't see your question had already been answered.  Pen 1, I would have thought it pretty much as far forward as you can get?! Andy, as Magna says, build up on the carbs in the last few days and drink lots of…

  • CHSDOC, you should have put a predicted finish time on your entry, that is how it is decided where you start?  What pen are you in?

  • Barneschar, I agree with Dad again re lacing. I have to wear mens shoes as I am a size 8 but with wide feet and high arch/instep.  Depending on the brand (Asics or Brooks) I go with either 8.5 or 9 and/or a wide fitting.  My previous shoes fit the f…

  • Not been here for a few days so well done all on Silverstone and weekend runs!  I dropped back to 14. Nice and steady. We're up in Dallas this week so I found a nice track around a lake and did 10 yesterday. One of the miles even began with an 8!!
