Not what I had planned I really, really struggled with the heat and had the worst cramp ever. Thank you to the two kind strangers who picked me back up around mile 18.
gonna go for it, my third london and now im on the gfa start . another very warm london too hot for me . i was on for a good time but died around 17 miles so took it easy after .. still got a gfa time
Watch time for now. So pleased with a 22 min PB!! Really struggled in this one though, was half a minute down on my intended time at half way and slowed - legs feeling like lead from about mile 20 onwards. Managed to keep the pace for sub3 til about 24 miles and it was then all I could do to keep running. So upset not to have got sub3 but it was an outside chance and I'm pleased to say I didn't blow the whole thing by my gamble to go off at 6.45min/mile pace. Championship Start added to the day but I won't be running London again.
Hills of Death (HOD)
Should get in
Race No. 19,225.
Pls let me get sub 4.........
Update: Having been injured for about 5 weeks of training, Im only going to be capable of getting round this so dont bet.
First London,fantastic atmostsphere loads of support, shame about my time, I died at 17th mile am still bewildered as to why , maybe heat. Loads of money raised for charity and that's always a good thing !
2:45:26 chip time.
very hot, carrying knee injury
Loved the first third, and not the last third! On course for 4.40ish, but hips and quads tight and aching by about halfway, got worse, and couldn't keep the pace. But not displeased, given multiple training probs in Feb. First road marathon.
Tough towards the end but loved every minute.
Reckon I'm in 2.48 shape at the moment but that is such a gash time. Going to gamble and go for it :)1.22 at hw and hang on;)
Didn't gamble- Ran a negative split by 2 seconds. Everything went right. Splits on training log
Garmin measured 26.54
Chip time (as always here) One of the hotter marathons and slowed in the last 15k. Couldn't get enough fluid in
WE DID IT! my numerous toilet stops towards the end delayed us 30minutes but WE DID IT!!!!
Wife vaowed never to run again, it's taken me a good couple of months to get intestines back to normal and now I'm back on it!!
It was hot and far too crowded for the first 20K despite starting in pen 5 (out of 1 to 9), we were walking for the first 2 miles. I managed to claw some back in the second half and finished 3:45. It was wonderful, the support was fantastic. Even around docklands there were people everywhere; cheering and whistling. I didn't want it to end. I loved it!
very ill during last 6 miles. Collapsed afterwards. Spent night in hospital.
PB, quite pleased with the time considering two weeks ago I thought I would not make it even to the start because of illness. Massive blister on the arch of my foot!
Athlete In Progress
Race went well up to half way, then had pulled something in my back therefore had to walk/run from half way on.
Raising money for:
Cancer Research & British Heart Foundation
Too hot for me! Was hoping for sub-4hr, perhaps even challenging my PB of 3:45, but not a chance of that happening with the sun out. Great atmosphere as always, and a most impressive Fetch support group on the course!
Obtained a Female Championship Place so starting at Blue Start.
Preparation confounded by a niggle picked up in hilly Sydney the week before the race. Seriously considered pulling out on Saturday. Right calf in pain as soon as I started and never eased off. Finally went ping properly after 24 miles.
Race Number 891. Championship Start - should be exciting! UPDATE: "Exciting" doesn't come close! My first sub-2:40 finish, and what a buzz!
Set off too quick by tower bridge knew 2nd half was going to be a struggle. Got blister at 10 which burst at 22 last 4 miles were painful but pleased with time
very warm. plan B came into action. wanted to have 3:30ish but couldn't seem to get back lost minutes after 13 miles. very pleased with time.
Blakey 26.2 RRC
Too hot......and had to help Gymfreak over the last 4 miles which cost me about 15 minutes
OMG the heat!!!!!! My feet are really suffering today and had to walk last 8 miles to just finish... i've got blisters in blisters!!!
Confirmed entry, looking to beat my Dublin '08 time.<br>
Well, what do you know, I equalled my Dublin PB - Blimey it was hot today.<br>
Sorry if you didn't get much back on the bets, I'll try harder next time
Have run under 200 miles since November so was very happy with the time, hopfully will have an injury free rest of the yr.
Got my place through a charity. Desperate to do under four hours and, with a year to prepare, might just manage it. Also currently training for my first triathlon (September of this year) so won't start dedicated marathon training until October. Really looking forward to the race.
Update 08/04/09 - still going to run but carrying two maltracking patellas. It will be both painful and slow but am determined to get round. No 4 hours for me this time. Will be happy with less than 5.
Update 27/04/09 - I did it! Barely ran at all in the 2 months previous due to knee pain. Physio helped a bit but in the end I broke 5 hours and am pleased with myself. Want to do it again now!
OMG only the second time I've applied and I've got a place. First marathon (and probably last!) - am v scared!
First FLM - running for Chidren With Leukemia - hoping for a time under 4 hours
Warm day and went off too quickly, first half in less than 1:50 - paid for this in the second half. But a PB so overall happy with my run.
Really struggled in the 2nd half of the race and the last 6 miles were pure hell. Probably went off to quick for my fitness and the conditions, was going for 3.30 and was bang on at halfway in 1.45 but faded badly from 18 miles onwards. It was incredibly hot and just could not cool down.
This will be my first GFA start so I'm looking forward to it. I'm having a break from marathons over the summer before deciding what time I'm going to aim for.
Struggled a lot towards the end due to the heat but still happy with time. Only disappointment was that my Garmin recorded 3hr 27 whcih would have been a PB.
Groin injury has scuppered the 4 hour target. 4:15 more realistic.
Tough run. Blisters from 6 miles, cramp from 13 which wouldn't go away, and far too hot.
What an amazing day! unbelievable experience. Right itb started at 14 miles and peaked at about 18 but didn't get any worse and nothing was going to stop me finishing. First 3-4 miles a bit slow due to the crowds but this helped me finish very strong. Even managed a negative split. Support was fantastic probably due to the nice weather. Might even do another one now????
Sorry to those who bet on me.
Was going fine until mile 20, then couldn't keep up the pace and decided to just enjoy the last six miles, with a stop for hugs and chat at fetchpoint, with Sluggett, my godaughter and a drink of beer off some spectators!
I do love London Marathon though!
First marathon, fairly confident on this time...
UPDATE: Missed by 43 seconds, but am well pleased with that given the heat
Awesome day! Warm, but great. Halfway in 1:25 then held 6:30 pace almost all the way. Passed hundreds in the 2nd half.
WOW. What an event. Looking forward to using my GFA for next years Virgin London Marathon. All sponsors very much appreciated. justgiving.com
4th year ballot entry, last years lost in the post! Feeling confident of getting in.Yesss I,m in!!
OMG Starting feeling nausea,s early on struggled to keep fluid down, walking most of way after 17 miles finished and promptly threw up at Admiralty Arch, guess I,ll have to do it again!!
Fab day too dam hot happy with time as i missed 4wks training injury
GFA - Race No. 31933
Due to injury delaying start of training I'm using this as last long run before Windermere Marathon.
UPDATE: Pretty happy with that. Found it hard work from 18 miles, was very warm. May have to adjust Windermere target, don't think I'm on for a pb
Very Hot. Just completed my 14th London the hardest yet and slowest. Struggled with the amount of people that just stopped at water stations from 17 miles to 23 then it became easier again. Next year will be the 30th anniversary and as my husband and I ran the first in 1981 we are hoping we will both get in next year. What do you think.
Had a nightmare, well disappointed, but I did sort-of enjoy myself...
All set for a sub 2:45 then STITCH happened, still a PB but 7 months of training...
Very happy with my time considering the awkwardness of wearing Bertie Bloodcell - my charitys mascott. felt really strong until about mile 18 but then the heat really started to take its toll in the big buildings of docklands. I think i was on the telly a couple of times too!
My first marathon. I just missed 4 hours; was well on track until around mile 22 but my legs just wouldn't keep working at the same speed.
Fantastic experience, I will definitely do it again
Sorry to those sho placed bets on me, I went well upto half way, then went to pieces, legs are agony, cramp in foot, knee buggered. But managed a pb by 1 min 11 seconds!
Lucky again, 2nd time out of 3 ballots hoping for a quicker run this time round. Race # 1312
UPDATE: Very warm but pleased with my time, met up with loads of Fetchies. What a great day !
Race day it did not go to plan too hot.
Sorry to anyone who bet on me! Did OK up to 10 miles then everything went pop!!! Enjoyed the gentle trot for the last 16 though !
Really good run... couldn't believe the time... could have been quicker though. Wasn't as much fun as Berlin... a lot of hype. Running in capital city had to be done though much of the route is pretty mundane. Need to improve the bands, nice day thou - warm
Trod on a water bottle at about mile 5 and turned the ankle, had a shooting pain a few times in the achilles area, and was worried about making it round
Struggled from mile 15, but kept going at about 9.30 pace cos I could see that a sub 4 was on the cards. The positive half of my brain wan the battle against the other half trying to get me to stop!
The Showers were luvverly today!
A bit hot
Run/walk from mile 19
But not too bad a time, considering
Done it! Sub 3, thanks to Contro over the last 400m and the wonderful Fetchpoint delivering my jelly babies on time at a moment I needed them. You guys are amazing.
Fantastic event with an elecrifying atmosphere. Felt like I ran a good race with the second half nearly as fast as the first (1:39:36 followed by 1:40:04) but I probably started too far back as I was moving up the field throughout and my pace was quite badly hampered in the early miles. Even at the halfway point I was still having to weave and dodge to overtake. Mile times (as best I could take them):
(1) 08:33, (2) 08:04, (3) 7:30, (4) 7:22, (5) 7:19, (6) 7:43, (7) 7:36, (8) 7:19, (9) 7:34, (10) 7:32, (11) 7:22, (12) 7:24, (13) 7:27, (14) 7:25, (15) 7:18, (16) 7:19, (17) 7:33, (18) 7:21, (19 & 20) 15:35, (21) 7:58, (22) 7:31, (23) 7:46, (24) 7:39, (25) 8:09, (26) 7:39
I'm running this to raise money for Kidney Research UK a cause close to my heart.
Going for 2:55. Brass Monkey Half in Jan of 1:21 suggests I could do it but anything can happen over three months of training and 26.2 miles of running!
Missed out on going under 3 at Berlin by a minute...not this time.**Update** Well that was tough going. I wanted sub 2.50 an felt good passing through halfway dead on time but really struggled to hydrate myself and felt the heat badly in the second half. Took on a bit too much water and a few too many gels and felt very ill. So overall still satisfied with sub 2.55 and GFA. Well done everybody, good running on a challenging day.
Amazing day all round. My first FLM experience and really enjoyed it. The organisation was superb, weather cracking if a bit warm and support fantastic. Chuffed with pacing (garmin dead at start line) and felt much stronger than I could've hoped for over the last 6m. 1st half in 1.27.46, 2nd half in 1.28.02, 695th overall.
Brilliant race to, such a great atmosphere!
Running for help the hospices.First (and maybe only) Marathon
Great event enjoyed the race.
All things considered recently this is a great time for me.:)
My 4th London in a row, the greatest race on the planet in my opion.UPDATE
Man it was warm out there, 2 minute pb but had to work damned hard for it!!
A pb - not quite what I'd hope but oh so glad to be finished!
Loved every minute. Had pretty even splits (01:58:40 and 01:59:32) and managed a good finish despite a bit of cramp at 22 miles. The crowds were extraordinary..nothing could have prepared me for the amount of support out there. Had a couple of blips in training but am now convinced after following Hal Higdon's Int II plan that there is no need to run further than 20 miles in training.
First Marathon. Ideally would like to get close or under 3hr 30.
First full M. Very scared, very excited.
Went well despite the conditions, a bit slower than hoped for but all good.
Great day, great to meet everyone, too bloody hot, loved it:)
Problems with knees meant my training was not was it should have been. Still, managed a decent time. Ran out of steam (the wall?) at 23 miles or so..
knee painful after 14m, walked most of way after that
Race number 1054
Training hasn't gone to plan, achilles injured but seems a lot better lately. Going to aim for that sub-4.
A fabtastic atmosphere once again enjoyed the first 18 odd miles more but was getting really fatigued in the last 6 miles but managed to get another PB by a mere 6 seconds. Great support from all the crowds which really helped at those low moments
Started off too fast and paid big time in the last few miles. A massive positive split...BUT I got a new PB and the crowds and the occasion were amazing.
a bit of a disastrous race morning meant a 4 mile walk with me weekends backpack getting to Greenwich with about 25 mins to spare but ah well the heat took its toll too (bloody weathermen!!!)also found working through the masses very difficult!!! didn't think it would be too bad from blue pen 5, but after the excuses i still have a PB so its not all bad ps gotta say excellent crowds really uplifting
Sub 3:30 would be amazing
I took it steady to carry my knee injury.
Was totally shocked at my time.
Had the most amazing weekend.
Lovely crowds - very helpful sweets, oranges and cheers. A little warm and crowded - so some swerving. Cramp at 23.5 and hard between 20-24. Great sprint at 25 to the end!
oh my god that hurt!
Busy, but a great day & fantastic support, although a bit too warm! Managed to get round without hitting the wall even with a tight calf from the start. Very happy to get around in under 4hrs considering the crowds. On the whole a top day - I'd love to come back for more.
Found out just how much missing the last couple weeks trining/carrying an injury and hot weather affects performance.Was looking for 3.50 to at least sub 4,at half way I was still looking at 4-20 ish.Then at mile 17 ish both knees locked with cramp and I finished in 4-56-38,running like the tin man.
arse. sorry. nice day though
Ballot entry confirmed - race # 1214. Didn't work out as planned - legs blew up about 21 miles and needed a few walk breaks. Don't think I did enough long runs of 20 or more miles, I'll know better next time. Atmosphere was fantastic.
Ran steady to half way. 1 hour 50mins. Started to feel lack of energy. Guess due to heat. Got cramps above knees at 19 miles. Never had that before. Nursed home with regular stops. Disappointed with over 4 hours. Must do another one make myself feel better.
Maybe if I do some blimming training I won't c*ck up another attempt
UPDATE Really stoked, taking 12mins off my PB and even sneaking under 2:55!!!
PB - really pleased - came in under 2.50. The support was amazing, would definately do it again.
Wonderful day. Support was amazing. It was too hot and crowded though. Was touch and go whether I'd get under 4 hrs but managed to pull out a 07:44 last mile to do it (and ended up in the medical tent as a result!)
Third marathon - looking forward to it, but not to training on cold dark winter nights.
i will break that four hours this year
Fantastic run under the circumstances. Realised early on I wouldn't get under 4hrs due to heat, but felt good most of the way and only really tired in the last six miles. Managed to keep a constant pace of around 30 min per 5k and only 43 secs slower in second half of race. Beat previous PB by 21 seconds.
Race number: 620. Championship position application form sent mid October. Can't wait for the acknowledgment form which will be returned in the stamped addressed envelope. This will be my 4th Marathon. Done London in April 2007 (3h 1m) , Blackpool in April 2008 (2h 35m), Angelsey in Sept 2008 (2h 47 (Hilly!)) and now, hopefully 2h 34m for London April 2009.
I am pleased but disappointed at the same time. Basically I got to 20 miles in 1h59 and thought that was too fast and might blow up if I didn't slow down. So I slowed a little and when I got to 25 miles I felt OK (tied but OK); it was too late then to do anything; I should have kept it strong back at 20miles. I think also at the 20mile mark the sun was out so I felt a little heat exhaustion.
5 km 0:18:19 25 km 1:32:18
10 km 0:36:40 30 km 1:51:01
15 km 0:55:14 35 km 2:09:58
20 km 1:13:54 40 km 2:29:27
half 1:17:57 finish 2:37:51
A PB yes but couldn't sustain 7 min pace after 7 miles and with increasing heat couldn't maintain the pace needed (7:26) to achieve GFA. Very warm!
Overall fairly happy with a 1 minute 22 second PB. Paced it pretty well for the first 25K or so but struggled towards the end, would have been a couple of minutes faster without the cramp in the last 3 miles and had a pretty bad stomach at the end. It was warm out there.
Very pleased with my time as it was a pb by over 9 minutes. I slowed in the second half with the heat, but still kept at a good pace. Race Number 31412.
Aiming for something below 3.45 ... fingers crossed!
That was hard but well chuffed to finish 82nd.
FLM splits: 5:59 5:38 5:30 5:40 5:37 5:49 5:51 5:48 5:46 5:44 5:48 5:44 5:51 5:44 5:45 5:45 5:55 5:52 5:49 5:54 5:59 5:56 5:58 5:56 6:12 5:58 1:55
OMG...what a shock..got one of the running club places...only found out last nite (12th Dec)...tbh..I just want to get round, and say...... I did that!!
What a day, what a race.
Have read some of the members blogs for yesterday and I'm counting my v lucky stars that I:
a) got round
b) beat my prediction
c) whoooped my prior PB
Fabulous support, especially family, friends at 15 and 18, plus FP at 13 and 22
Another amazing day in London.
Really hot,but pleased with my time!
Looking to run 2:55 - 3:05 on Sunday.
About 4.5Kg lighter than when I ran 3:15 Marrakech in January, lightest in about 18 months, so looking good.
This will be my 3rd FLM.
1st time in the Good For Age red start, race number 31463. See you all there!
Got to about 18 miles running at 2:54 pace, then it all started to go south, pace dropped right off.
Moaning about 'only running 3:04', Edinburgh I hope will see that 3:00 broken again
Big struggle today. Something not quite right, dunno whether I've had bug or getting one but appears to be the only reason I was so far off the pace and in so much discomfort.
Running in fancy dress for the 1st time!!!
Perfectly placed for 20 miles, but really suffered in the last 6 (too hot!)
Cant beleive i finished it! thought i was going to die!
Pleased to sneak under 3. Loved it.
put the ghost of '07 to rest i guess, but i'm sure i'd have done even better had it not been so hot.
Oooh, bugger. Didn't think I'd get in through the ballot, big shock when I did. Now I've got to get fit
That was really tough. I was genuinely hopeful (and I think capable) of a sub-4. The heat, combined with knee injury flare-ups put paid to that. Incredible day though, and massively proud to complete my first marathon.
I shot the sheriff
My first full marathon hoping for sub 4 hours.
Didn't get in through ballot but I got one of the 3 places assigned to my club. Woohoo!
Pretty happy with this as got my GFA time, but it wasn't a stunning performance and I still want 3.30!
This IS my local marathon.
I'm in on a charity place and besides myself with excitement. I shall enjoy this as much as I enjoyed my first ever marathon.
As I invented Fetchpoint (and then Stumpy did all the work making it happen) and have spent the last 4 years supporting at London, it will be lovely to be on the receiving end at FLM.
Goal was 3:20 - 3:30, but predicted 3.25. Didn't have the pace in the legs to get a PB as still recovering from Barry 40 6 weeks ago. Slow start as bunched up and like that for the first 5 miles. Rather warm weather, but remained hydrated. As in previous marathons had slow miles for 17 & 18 but picked it up from there, but Last 3 - 4 miles were slower but kept going. How could I stop! what with the encouragement of the crowd! Very enjoyable race.
Need to do more interval training and running at targeted race pace for the future.
Overall position: 3468.
Place age: 691.
40 km 3:14:32
Am training for quicker but will update nearer the time...after my 20 milers....let's hope it's not 70 degrees + this time.....sodding weather and sodding stitch watched the target time slip away from half way but when the stitch cleared at mile 20 I actually enjoyed the final 6 miles and loved running down Embankment and was sooo pleased I hadn;t quit at mile 6 with the stitch.....that 4.30 tgt remains for next year, London or elsewhere:-)
On target for sub 4 hours until mile 15 when the heat started to take it's toll. Didn't enjoy last 10 miles, became a grim plod. Still - guaranteed entry next year on 6th entry ticket - so have to break 4 hours before I emigrate!!
2nd marathon in 3 weeks - can 2 sub-2-45s be done?
London was awesome in the sun. Very pleased.
ran fine to 17.5 miles. too hot, struggled. walked more than wanted to but finished which was main target
A tad on the warm side today!
My first prediction. Fingers crossed. Do not set off too fast!!!
Best to keep my predictions to myself in future.
This was horrible.
A PB but not the one I wanted! was on course for breaking the 3hrs when had some crippliing hamstring problems from mile 19. Sorry for those who placed a bet on me. Back to the drawing board
i'd have gotten away with it if it hadn't been for that meddlin sun
Pleased to have got sub-4, particularly given congestion and temperature. Thank goodness my wife packed suncream. Great atmosphere, and great support along the way.
Now this is my official time(with wee break)Garmin time; 5:36:21.
Hot and hard, but good fun.
Went well, although it was very hot! A great experience.
Pleased with my time, although it would have been nice to be 45 secs faster to get under 3:30...
Really hot day, but i enjoyed the race. On to the next one!
Was going ok up until 13 miles when the old runners knee raised its ugly head, run/walked up to 21 miles when my knee went completely and I had to hobble the rest of the way (apart from the obligatory jog over the line).
Despite an awful time, had a cracking time in the sun and in complete agony.... :o)
1/12 - 25876 I am in!! 26.2 miles "virgin". No predictions, just going to enjoy it :). It was all about survival especially after issues from mile 14 and I did survive
51 seconds slower than Monday's marathon. Fairly consistent.
I did it, however this is my clock time not my CHIP time!! So may even be a little better,!! IWell done to those who bet on me!! whoop whooppppp.... last FLORA!!! New one next year!!!! Well done to all who ran supported and helped! x x x
This will be my first marathon and I cannot wait!
Too hot for running in. The BBC weather forecast was wrong.
Taking on water at every mile which meant I kept needing to stop for a p**s.
Knee had been a problem in the two weeks before and therefore ran with
a knee support which I took off at Canary Wharf and felt a lot better.
Disappointed with the time despite better training and prep races prior to FLM 2009
Not a good day legs hurt from the start just got worse. Slowest London in three years might just have to go back next year and try sub 3 once again.
Yipee !!!!!!!! Got a place throgh r.c. again, Lets hope I get to use it this time (will have to be a bit carefull for the remainder of the x/c season). Should be my 2nd crack at 26.2m distance, looking to avoid cramp in the last couple miles & shave 5 to 10min off p/b depending how crowded the course is. 20/4/09 then again maybe not picked a slight niggle.
I disappointing run. I was sure I would get a PB but missed it by 50 seconds.
I have my club place (4th time in a row), doing Paris also but this time there is a nice gap between them.
Ballot - "unprecendented demand" - My Arse !
Got place in club ballot Have just posted form back..now it gets serious!
6 days to go......am scared and excited. I've done the training, talked the talk so now all I have to do is run!
Prediction is 4:30, would be v. pleased with sub 4:15 and ecstatic with sub 4:00
I DID IT!!!!! And in less than 4:15 too, am very,very pleased. A fantastic day!
Would love to get GFA but already missed 4 weeks and still not 100%. Great day out though and the missus is doing it this year so good to tell the kids in a few years. UPDATE - 3.00.50 - happy with time but gutted to have mental moment in Docklands and talk myself out of a sub 3. Half hour PB though
Bloody hot & got major cramps at 21 then the wheels completely fell of at 23.
Went of to quick for the conditions, should have been doing 8mm in that heat and gone for a 3:30 instead of 3:15. Still you live and learn!
Bring on Abingdon!
Very warm first 6 miles. HR high.
And a new PB
An amazing atmosphere. Hoping fo ra little quicker, but the warm weather didn't help. I'll be back anyway, that's for sure!
died. on. my. arse. Amazing experience
It was so hot, didn't know how much water to take on. In the end I think I judged everything right, I finished feeling fine (apart from a bit emotional) very few aches and pains, and able to enjoy a good night out afterwards.
Chuffed to bits. Especially off the back of only about 6 weeks worth of decent training.
My first marathon! Brilliant, fantastic, wonderful day. I loved every minute of this truly inspirational event. Just totally pissed off that my time was so weak (it was the heat!). Should have tried harder! Next time.
Hardly surprising given 4 weeks of (virtually) no running, but had to give it a shot.
Cramp in the last mile making it an 11 minute mile....otherwise, not sure.
Must try harder !
good up until 20 miles and then the muscle cramps that got me in training took over - gutted!!!
Good race but shuld have done quicker but got up in slower runners as started way from the back. Though pleased as was able to push myself a bit and nothing hurt! AND my first marathon!
Took a huge chunk off my marathon PB last October, but missed 3:30 by 5 mins. So I'm aiming to run this sub 3:30.
Sorry to those who bet on me. I had a mare of a race - half-way in 1:39 (good), hamsting cramp at 14 miles, race over by 15 miles. Ran on slowly to 19 mile where family was waiting, then really struggled to the end.
PB by 8 minutes. Very pleased.
Should Av Run Quicker
A bit aprehensive about this, as had a few injuries and still have plantar faciatis!! Anything can happen after 20 miles so just hope I can hang on, I'll either get a PB or fail big time!
*** Didn't do either...just outside predicted time so not a disaster, but it has put me off marathons****
Hot day and very hard work. Splits:
5 km 0:23:19
10 km 0:46:51
15 km 1:10:38 20 km 1:34:32

40 km 3:21:01
half 1:39:39 finish 3:33:46
Steady for first18miles then fell away due to lack of energy. Good practice for edinburgh!
Nightmare run... Bloody back problem!!!
Too hot for me! Aimed to do 11min miles was ok to 15 but started slowing at 16. run walk rest of way - just too hot for me!! but a great day and im so proud of myself - esp a fatty like me!!
Nice leisurely stroll on an injured foot in BEAUTIFUL weather. Race report to follow.
Lucky to get in on the ballot second time (bequeathed). Best not squander my place then ! Will be first time as a VET40.

** UPDATE **
Found it a bit warm, lost my pace after mile 20 onwards. PB by 1 minute will do though.
Little disappointed with time but at least i didnt crash out like some poor souls i saw.
Very hot but ran at a very even paced race, aimed for 6:40's but ended up with 6:46's. Took it steady and ran controlled to get a time starting with 2:XX. 1st half 1:28, 2nd half 1:29. Really happy!
Between Jan 1 and April 26 this race is all that matters. Sub 3.15 is what i want........must have.
*Update - Tough conditions so well pleased, sub 3.15 and thats what i wanted :-)*
Today, I completed the 2009 London Marathon in 4hr 44m, running the first half in 2:06, then suffering in the heat. I kept it going until about 20 miles but the last 6 miles turned into a challenge not to walk, kept it going, I could not stop, passed a lot of people walking.
It was very hot here today, I am sunburnt, drank at every water station & even took showers on course to cool down.
Bugger - slow start and belting sunshine scuppered my dreams. Edinburgh for me next year when I will beat 3:30.
really pleased, as i stopped after 9 mile to take painkillers as my new ankle straping was far too tight and i had to take it off, but none the less, i finished well, and was pleased
Stomach cramps/ache and a headache from thee start which got gradually worse. Tried to make myself sick but without success.It all fell apart from mile 20 onwards. DOH !!
Still feel fine today and pleased to have finished in 4.12.04 as I felt like death
The heat got to me I'm afraid. I don't enjoy running in high temps and once again (I suffered in 2007 too). I also couldn't get into a good stride as I kept getting boxed in between slower runners (I have the bruises to show for it). Anyway, it was still a PB and I'm a bit miffed that I didn't get under the 4hrs 30mins but, hey, there's always next year ;o) Sorry for anyone who bet on me, I did try.
CC2 Speedy Goth
Eeek, I'm scared! 26.2 miles is a very very long way isn't it?!
It was hot, hot, hot. I don't run well in the heat. I found it hard but enjoyed it. The crowd were amazing.
running for "Regain" for people who have been injured through a sportig or leisure activity. Doing it with my wonderful husband. All we want to do is finish and raise loads of money.
As a 1st timer I'm trying to keep my feet on the ground. Would love to aim for 3.30 - steady 8 min milers & training on track so far, but 1st aim is 3.40.UPDATE: What a day - the sun was a killer but kept to plan A & churned out the miles & delighted with the time.
Santos L Helpar
Apologies to anyone who bet on me. I've had knee and calf injuries in the last 3 weeks and it WAS rather hot!
happy bunny today, i paced myself well and took on the right amount of fluids and gels
Bahhhhhhhhhhh no sub 4 but beat the F Word by a minute !!!
Very hot, crowded (obviously), and got a little touch of sunstroke -- reasonably pleased though
lookingfor sub 4, anyone overby Burnhm on crouch who wants to do long runs let me know.
struggled from 8 miles
first half in 1.29.30,second in 1.42.07 kept at 6.50 pace until 19 but realised then couldn't sustain it. However, instead of getting down about it just relaxed and enjoyed the crowds and run. A pb pretty far from my target but a pb on a hot day none the less.
Fox on a run
Wheels came off around mile 19. Apologies to those who bet on me.
Great run, 15min PB, half splits of 75 + 79, dropping off not as bad as previous 26.2. With the Champs start got into a good pace quicker, and actually saw more of the course than last year. Highlights, running around Cutty Sark with two other runners, no one else around, and also going over Tower Bridge with a club mate who I followed for most of the race and another local runner. Enjoyed this years race than last years damp and cold run, the crowds much bigger, and cheering everywhere.
will be hard but will give it a go
Oh dear... got the raging shits at half six on Sunday morning... struggled round anyway, helluva introduction to marathons but onwards and upwards !
Hope to beat the just sub 4:00:00 Robin Hood time. maybe even 3:45:00 - Well I was gutted with 4:45:10 but reading all the other reference to cramp and feeling wacked at 18 and that is what happened to me to. I spotted a short loo queue in the shade @18 and that settled my stomach and a quick stretch impoved my calf. But all the early stop starting and painfully slow bits meant I was not on to even match my PB.
Glad I eased right off and survived without any serious damage - never seen so many poor folk being attended to by St John's - quite a few being helped by other runners etc.
Not sure quite how to train for the conditions because I have never run it that that before!
Amazing experience with great organisation.
tick follows tock
buzzing with my time lost 4 minutes in second half of race but very pleased indeed in the hot sun for some of the run-where do I go from here
First. Marathon. Ever.
one of those 'things to do before you're 30'!!
got in through the ballot, so therefore it was meant to be (I think!)
Weather much hotter than I had anticipated. Overheated and missed my target by miles, with a painful second half.
Would like to beat my times of 1995 and 1996 of around 4 hours 20 minutes but legs are not what they used to be so will be happy to finish and hopefully under 5 hours
gambled on running sub 4hr pace & unfortunately the wheels fell off at 20miles,suffered horrible cramp in my thigh but managed to shuffle my way to the finish line.
Ill for few days before with elevated HR. So happy to take it easyish and get under 3:15 to do battle another day
A WARM DAY SO TIMES SLIPPED AWAY AFTER THE 20 MILES....
had a great time, very hot to start with, a bit cooler around the docks ok towards the finish. Struddled with calf cramps during the middle but not as bad at the end, i think thats because i was going much slower
lost a bit of time in the crowd, but still would have been over 3:30. That said, really pleased overall, knocked 14 mins of my edinburgh time.
am not looking to forward to this one bit, just havent had the time, energy or anything to train as much as I would have liked, never want to run more than 10 miles ever again after this.....
SOrry guys who bet on me. I failed big time.
Hated every minite of it... had really bad head ache, to hot and legs just didnt want to play.... never again.
Thanks for the support of everyone, it helped me round, sorry to the people who were stood by the tree where I brought my water back up!!!!
well done to those who got PB's
I'm running this to raise (minimum £1300) for Chickenshed.
“Chickenshed is a local theatre company based in Southgate. They work using an inclusive creative process – which means everyone is welcome, and everyone is valued. They run a Children’s and Youth Theatre, education programmes and outreach projects.”
It’s a fabulous charity and their theatre is exceptionally entertaining with pure talent and passion.
flm started off at a steady pace. got halfway in a good time 1,42,30 all ok than at 18 mile i started to get cramp in my left leg stoped to streech it out and carried on. then at 20 mile i got cramp in my right leg had to stop again to streech it out. tryed to get back into it but every time i keeped getting cramp in both legs. i finished the race but not very happy with the time. 3,48,04.
It is with trepidation that I have added this to my portfolio, as a cursory glance at my recent races entered shows a distinct lack of finishing times, inlcuding the Berlin and Frankfurt marathons. I've managed two 10ks in the last 18 months, but providing the second op (to remove some of the metalwork from the first) goes well in a couple of weeks, I'll be at the start in April - fit(ish) and raring to go.
Not Greased Lightning (M.)
This is my wished for time, but anywhere between Nell McAndrew and Gordon Ramsey will be fine. After Katie and Peter will be a bad thing.
So a rubbish day at the office, did finish between Gordon and the Prices so not all bad.
rubbish jarred anlke on drinks bottle never recovered
Hot Day - Beat last years time by 20mins and 40secs
Cramp... Both Legs Same Time.. Man that hurts.
Brilliant Day all he same, glad to finish
On target to break 4 hrs until 20 miles when the legs cramped up and had to walk to the last 3 miles.Bugger. I blame the heat but who knows
Very Warm Day , Just didnt quite get the 3:45 i so wanted .
suffer badly at 23 miles in
omg so hot and paid for pushing too hard after a very slow 1st 10K - the last 10K was even slower then the first!
It was very hot and I got bad cramp from mile 20 onwards. Several of my friends had the same problem. Well there is always next year.
great day, as like most had a good first half but suffered with the heat. Weel done to all those who took part.
absolutley loved it. tough keeping going last few miles but held it together. great experience, amazing crowds
Desperately trying to get sub 4 if possible - but this will be some feat to achieve this - but I have to try !
Was going well and on pace to mile 20 then things went very wrong! more of a mental collapse than a physical one, got round in the end though
Just not quite fit enough this yr. But only started training properly in Feb 09 so just a little unlucky.
Training has gone pretty much to plan this year, with no major hiccups. Looking forward to Sunday, and hoping for a sub 3.
Beware Of The Fish
Curse the Great British Weather for such a hot day!
28th place / 13th Brit
Well chuffed, groin in complete agony at the end and still very bad the day after but don't care - all worth it
was going really well until 18 miles then i slipped and that was it my knee clicked and i ended up run/walking the last 10 or so miles
Very disappointed with my time, it was so hot and really struggled from mile 15 to 20...couldn't get into my rythmn...however...I did enjoy it much more than 2 years ago...just not cut out for Marathons I think!..sorry to those who bet on me!
Enjoyed the day - was too hot for my liking as had not trained in hot weather (blame Bristish weather!)

Race of 2 halfs. 1st half good 2nd half awful and just wanted to get to finish. Spent 2 hours with St Johns Ambulance after I collapsed 10mins after finishing and was sick. Core Temp low and was shivvering. Lost too much salts. New target Autumn marathon.
training not been going fantastic (calf injury meant i missed a month then had a cold which knocked out another week or so) so no pb on this one - just looking to get round and enjoy it.
oh dear...another day, another injury. was going fine up to 16 miles then felt sharp pain in my calf - thanks to St Johns who strapped me up and supplied enough ice-packs on route so i was able to limp over the finish line.
Blew my Marathon cherry on 3:43 little disappointed with that but found myselft in pen 7 and just could not get into a decent rhythmn - stopping and starting. Was 5 mins down in 5 miles and knew any attempt to get that back would be suicidal .....Found it hard from 21 miles on and had to take a walk at 24 miles but got back into it again -too busy , too warm and too hard !! Loved it though !!!!!
not my finest moment, but it *was* v. hot!
Too hot & too crowded !
Another superb event in london. The weather did not suit me at all, very hot at the start. Most pleasing was my race management. took fuel on in a very sensible way. No wall hitting, just trudged it out.
Managed 3hrs 34m 25s 2 years ago - my first. I am stronger since then, though I have had a more troubled training session! The Fleet Half a couple of weeks ago suggests I should aim for 3.04...I think not! As long as I can clip 3.30 I will be a happy boy.
Yippee !!! i am so happy i achieved a pb yesterday,my previous best was paris 3:15:46 back in 2000 ,i wanted to break that when i turned 50 and i did but it was so tough and bloody hot.Just proved to me that if you really focus and train hard you can do it
Sorry to all who bet on me. I started too fast, got my hydration and fuelling wrog and blew up. Still, it was a great experience and I will be back
Pink Team 1
I dont run well in the heat, this was not predicited until the day before. Enjoyed the atmosphere but died at 35 k
Felt dreadful from mile 7 !!!!
First ever Marathon, so anywhere round my predicted time, I will be more than happy with.
Fantastic day out with awesome support
Four years since last Marathon - which was FLM. Looking forward to the challenge - and the support
*Update: never really got chance for a clear run and stuck at 9m/m pace until halfway; then the heat showed its hand ans cramp in both calves at the same time rather blew sub- 4 hrs out of the water. Great day out tho' *
98 th position,
Took to the streets this morning for the first time in three weeks due to a calf injury. Took 2 pain killers at the start and another 2 at 22 miles! I found the run really difficult - not sure if it was the heat or lack of training! Jelly legs - I had them and a sunburnt nose!
a very hot day and frustratingly conjested but still enjoyed running thru London town!!
Really struggled in the heat but what a great day. I'll be back again.. thanks to the fetchies in the docklands.
Thoroughly enjoyed my run as Lara Croft! Fab experience
Hot day. Suffered in last 6 miles. Was on top until mile 19
Had the shits the night before, then felt lousy in my tum on the day. couldn't stomach any lucozade and barely drank any water the first half. Walked for miles, then ran the last 4 or 5 well. Still enjoyed the day though.
Hamstring problem from 14 miles.
Very hot day
Boo, dodgy knee
HOT HOT HOT last marathon for me no more second one and that is me done
First marathon. Really pleased with pacing though would have liked to manage negative split. At 22 miles was just a case of putting one leg in front of other. Never have my quads hurt so much.
Brilliant, but very hot and I got stitches at mile 20.
Very pleased with this race.Came 158th in the london marathon,10th in age group and smashed my PB by 7 and a half minutes with a time of 2.38.51
Poorly run first marathon, bad pacing as I actually went for 3 hours as golden time and 3.15 as worse case scenario. Maintained 6.52 m/m until 14 when it started to slip, pushed on when I should have cut right back, let HR come down and then run at adjusted pace. Cramp over last 6 miles meant lots of stopping to stretch and a poorly set up Garmin saw me miss GFA by one minute !
I'll be back to lay the demons to rest
hot and painful
Dodgy ankle so dressed up as Darth Vader
Really hot day ............. but a realy enjoyable event. The crowds were terrific and at I completed the last ever London Marathon sponsored by Flora.
Was on target for sub 4 and half then something went wrong at 23 miles. Found self on stretcher with oxygen and ice packs all over me. Overheated badly. 1.5hrs in ambulance then was finally allowed to walk to the finish :o) VERY Happy.
Went well although i was exhausted towards the end due to coming straight from heathrow after returning from new york.
I was way too conservative as i had not done my long runs due to a knee injury
Very hot day and I was very lazy. I did not push as hard as I needed too. Please to have taken part and completed. Would like to give it another go to get a better time
Hit the wall mile 24 ouch.... next year better food the day before
Consistent pace from start until halfway - legs turned to jelly at Tower Bridge. Walked/hobbled the second half. Fair to say I underestimated the training quite significantly...
Felt really strong all the way round this time.
Da Big Guy
18C aparently at the finish. I think that was the difference between what I was hoping for. Includes a 50 second toilet stop.
Had a nightmare April of illness and injury, not shaken off a cold and achilles knackered. Set off too fast, tendon hurting by 4 miles, slowing after 6, got to halfway and had to stop. Run/walked second half averaging 10mm... only the thought of my sponsors got me round and the people waiting on embankment.
the bevan fella
My first marathon, the heat nearly killed me! But I loved it.
FINISHED THE LAST 12 MILES ON A SUSPECTED SPRAINED ANKLE!

Should of not waited for Steve but that is how it goes, third time lucky in 2010
This was my first marathon, so I was chuffed enough to cross the finish line. Ideally, it would have been under 4 hours, but hey ho!
bad cramp at mile 18. Need to sort out for 2011 !!
Injured 6 weeks before - stupidly still ran it on one run a week for those 6 weeks.
Will come back one year to get a time with a 4 in it!!
After this injured for one year - so really not worth it......
First ever marathon - very hot day. First half felt great.
The Mighty OFK
great run pb by 2.30 mins well pleased
