Gonna have to drop out of the Silverstone 1/2 Marathon as I will be in Spain. Going to do the Milton Keynes one on the 4th March instead unless anyone has a better suggestion.

Only just seen this - you could give your number, chip, etc. to gatters who could run it for nothing on your entry.

Got our team in for the Thunder Run (http://tr24.co.uk) and it's a much stronger team than last year and I think this lot might be taking it a bit more seriously in terms of trying to finish as one of the fastest 7-runner teams.  I'm the 2nd slowest in the team by a considerable distance and we have two runners who run sub 2:45 marathons!

My training for this (it takes place over the last weekend of July) starts NOW!

Very impressive.  That'll give you a predicted marathon time of 3-hours, give or take.

He didn't say he was trying to run non-stop for 30 minutes as a goal.

Thought the long term goal was to run non-stop for MORE than 30 minutes...assuming it'll take longer to complete a marathon.  Surely she's doing good by breaking it down into mini goals?

That's my point. The goal is to run for 30 minutes, but instead of doing this she might be going at a pace that's too fast at this stage.

No, I've just been injured for the past three weeks so nowt to say!

Getting some new running shoes tomorrow, hopefully will be able to run in them this week. Was meant to be doing the Silverstone Half today, but had to kick that into touch unfortunately.

Jolly good, the weather today was a treat! I bought some new shoes last week and again you just feel a little more lifted in your running, I used to be about having the latest model but now not so much. I think I did the inaugural silverstone half in 2003, back then it was touted as the London marathon prep, I remember thinking this was a little weak. 3 laps from memory, one going backwards around the track, the second around the middle of the track and the third going the normal way. Not the best half but quite fun to run on the track!

I did it in 2004 and have done it again since. A well organised half, and like you said ideal prep for London.

sounds like silverstone was hellish temperature wise, lots of people pulling out not expecting it to be that hot

a friend of mine finished 5th overall

The weather was hot because God thought I was running it. It wasn't that hot yesterday though.

The female runner from our tr24 team last year managed to win the ladies race.
