If you're running the London Marathon, what's your target time? Let us know, come back and post what you got after the race!
Having fallen down the stairs last weekend....... I'll be happy to get around without being in too much pain! I'd be happy with less than 5 hours but for me it's just an acheivement to get to the finish line :)
I'm hoping for just under 4 hours .... as long as my nerves don't get the better of me, also been suffering with injury on my calf so never got to do my 22 mile run :(
I'm just hoping to finish - preferably on the same day I start :0)
I've just got a place for 2013 - starting my 3rd week of a 26 week plan - hope to do it 4 hours but will have a better idea after my first half marathon in February
Great Russell, log your miles on Bug Miles so we can see you're keeping up with that training program!!
Is it your first time?
Yes its my first time - only started running in 2011 and have a slipped disk which can cause pain when training.
Built up to running 30km a week in last few months, mainly 5miles and 5km runs. Then did the nike 10k this summer and a guildford charity 10k trail run in October.
In the guildford run i was the highest fund raiser and won a place in the marathon for that charity - i hadnt planned this but decided to go for it - 3 weeks into 24 week training plan.
To help i have entered a 10k in Jan, and half marathon in Feb and another half in March.
Great Russ, you'll be fine. Don't over do it and just keep to a minimum of 4 runs a week and you'll be fine.
Who you running for?
Id be happy with less than 5 hours. I think though it depends on the day. The last LM I done, it was about 70 degrees (back in 2007), so I think I was nearer to 6 hours. I think the main thing is to cross the line smiling
I ran a 10k for Disability Challengers, who provide support for my autistic son. As the highest fund raiser I won a place with them in the VLM - unintended but I decided to go for it!!
My first, did a 10k and great north run last year so all new to me, no dea on expected timing aim for 4 hours and a little bit.
I just want to finsh so I can justify the sponsor money!!!
