Sorry to hear Weasie, I'm in the same boat with an annoying calf injury that won't fix. I've just missed Barcelona Marathon this weekend (still had a good time though) and will defer London...annoyed/frustrated yes as it's taken 5 years to get in but at least I know I have a place next year but will be very paranoid about injuries as that will be it and will have to start the whole ballot thing over again. Could go in fancy dress on crutches or something :-)

Never been to spectate either, so that will be an experience this year.

Plan now is to Try and get fit for Berlin, but will be resting for next 3-4 weeks to try and fix whatever is wrong with my calf.

I'll decide tomorrow after a physio appointment before work, if I should defer VLM 2013. I've been getting metatarsal pain for a few weeks which is getting worse now. TBH I feel like I should defer anyway, since feel like I'm holding back on my runs because I can feel the injury. I really wanted to go out on a high, maybe with a small PB, cos London was going to be my last marathon-I'm not a natural marathon runner, I think! So even if fizz says I could run and get through the race, I don't feel like I'd do myself justice....so really thinking of deferring anyway. Is that being silly?

I've deferred due a 'cold' that started on 21st March. I'm still coughing now. Most of the training was in the bag though, so I've entered Edinburgh as a consolation and I'm still going to London for the Fetch-fest!

I've deferred due to my bad back getting in the way of a decent block of training.

Quite relieved to have come down with a lurgy this week that would have stopped me running in any event.

Still kept the deferral form on screen for a few days before pressing the button though - first London Marathon I've missed since 2007.

Next stop Aningdon in October

It is good to read this and see that I am not alone. Had to defer due to perounus longus strain and although I got round Paris taped up I really want to have a crack at VLM and not just get round! Good luck to you all forVLM 2014.
