jennywren Going to try to run with the 11 min/mile RW pacers as a 'tester' for the London Marathon. Failing that, I'll do the 'Get you Round' pacer instead!

Yay! I did it - stayed with the pacer and felt fantastic! Unaffiliated 2:05:31 2:20:30 2:15:00 2:22:32 56.77

My poor knees... Am running for Mencap in the London Marathon (first time) and really want to do the London in less than 4 hours, so this run will hopefully give me an indicator of if what I am doing is right!! Please fell free to give me any tips.

:-)

Have just seen that this race is doing the same lap twice!!! I am not looking forward to this at all now.

:-(

UPDATE:

Horrible horrible run. Never again. Would have preferred one long lap rather than 2 short laps, followed by 2 long ones!!! 
Mustn't complain too much, as this is my best time ever for a half.
:-)
 Apart from the course (that I hated), it was well organised and the atmosphere was great, with some helpful commentary by the MC.
Special mention to John Winters who seemed to be a celebrity on the course (everyone knew him): well done on your time and hope your injury is behind you mate. Unaffiliated 1:48:18 1:48:18 2:10:00 1:48:18 54.05

sugs Looking forward to this and hoping to shave a little bit off my last half marathon time.  

Well i did it.  Stuck more or less with the 8 mile marker, she beat me by one second.  Acutally wasnt the plan but just went for it.  Really pleased with the result.  thanks to all that bet on me.
