Based on 2 reviews
Club place. Number 26630. Hoping for 3:30, but depends on many, many factors...
Two marathons in a week - job done, plus £500 for Help for Heroes!
Started off great well in control untill about mile 20, then blisters on both feet where hurting felt on pop, so socks full of blood. Then my predicted time was gone, Very dissapointed,Must do better.
Chip time. Whoooo hoooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A PB will be anything under 4.22, looking for a sub 4 at the moment.
Second attempt in two years. No last minute trips to Australia beforehand this time.
Ran that one a little too close!!
Deferred entry from 2009. Hopefully can get through training without getting injured this time!
Really disapointed. Fell apart at ~16 miles
Bad run, legs felt tired before I'd even begun. Knew it would be tough straight away and started struggling as early as 8 miles. Got to halfway in 1.58.xx which was fairly good pacing given that I forgot my garmin but it felt far too hard for that pace. No cramp, just tired legs.
I have to say I don't really like London, too many people to dodge, drink bottles scattered everywhere & the route isn't particularly inspiring. The support is amazing but I'd prefer to be halfway round a picturesque off-roader with no one around.
Training and preparation races have gone very well. Looking for a good PB as a minimum. Should be a safe bet.
Race wrecked by injury at 16. Had to walk last ten. 2.06 at halfway gives you an idea of time I was going to get
See how the year goes, but aim will be 2:35. Gonna work hard to get close to it.
Bit of a guess on the time as a big unknown, will update it as it gets nearer.
UPDATE: bit of a moving target but calf's and knees playing up and no 20 miler completed.
Amazing day, amazing support, amazing knee pain !!! Blown away by the whole experience. Spent the last 6 miles saying never again but even though I can still bearly walk thinking about entering another one.
Hoping for 3.30, but it will depend on how slow/crowded the first few miles are (and obviously how knackered I am for the last few)!
Fantastic day, thoroughly enjoyed (nearly) all of it! A couple of severe cramps between miles 24 and 25, but managed to get going again - very pleased with time!!
GFA Entry + first London & going for a PB if i start training now (Apr09) - Missed it 3:01:01, try again in Edinburgh
Deferred from 2009 as I was struck down with acute pancreatitis during my longest training run for 2009 on April 5
This will be my 4th London Marathon and I'm reasonably happy with the way training has gone. It's been a busy few months so, as usual, there is that niggling feeling that I could have done more...but isn't it always so. The main thing is that I've come through un-injured and my weight is down to a reasonable level. So with the right weather and a good start I'm feeling positive about at least breaking the PB, if not that target of sub 3:15.
But, hey, I'm going to try and enjoy it too...this is the LM and the first VLM after all.
Running in GINGERBREADMAN outfit!
Sub 3.30 will be mine.
After 5 ballot rejections I'm prety sure I'm I this time!
Damn !!!! Could not re-start running after Fetchpoint, got all dizzy and partially sighted !! Eventually - after a swig of a spectators Magners, kick-started myself for a PB. Could have had another 10 minutes off of that ....
Pains in left Knee from about 10 miles in. Continued to about 14 miles where I swapped my support over, struggled from then on, limping and walking with a couple of massages on the way.
It went to plan. Had to work a bit at the end but thats what its about.
My first marathon, great day and terrific atmosphere from start to finish, very pleased with the time which is a bonus.
Got G.F.A at Edinburgh so should be in..update later when i have some energy..Didn't fell too great at start,saw the 3hr pacer and clung to him for dear life,felt better as the race progressed,able to take off on my own for last 5k,very strong finish.....P.B....5k accum 20.33,41.37,1.02.38,1.23.34,1.28.04,1.44.33,2.05.49,2.27.36,2.48.50,2.58.06...935th place,gender 900,cat 40th.
Will try and hold a steady 11min mile pace
Am being a Super Sixer....GULP
Injury, forced to plod home from 15 miles including a mile of walking and some stretching with the on course physio.
PB! Awesome day Fetchpoint was Fantastic!
Just to remind me why attempting to go quicker would have been a very silly idea!
2010 run training to date...
Jan = 54
Feb = 62 (building nicely)
Mar = 23 (bu99er hurty foot)
Apr = 76 (including the 27!? today on vlm course...)
at least my garmin clocked sub 4 for 26.2 miles
Onwards and updwards - Austria looms on horizon *wibble*
I had forgotten how painful a marathon could be!!!, but now its over and the pain has subsided....want to do it again!
Unbeleivable!!!!!!!!!!!!!! miles of training totally worth it for the big day, mighty tough but a great experience!!!!!!
sign up everyone!
Had to defer in 2009 due to injury - will be building up more gently this time
blew out at 14 miles...
It shouldn't be hard to beat my current marathon time so long as I stay out the darn ambulance this time :o)
Very happy with a PB off limited training. Suffered another stitch though.
Weather - rain at start, warmed up as race progressed but generally not too bad. Field was packed for first 13 miles or so and there were too many runners that had clearly been 'over ambitious' in their predicted times. Spectators were brilliant.
Well, that is by some distance the most incredible running experience I've had. The organisation was really slick, the crowds were immense, and the feeling upon completion was like nothing else. Time was disappointing but my race plan fell apart when my quad seized up. Oh well, there's always next year!
Had a few stomach problems from 8 miles, struggled the whole way afterwards.
PB. Feeling it now though
Berlin 2010 is the focus.
London Marathon. Felt good until about half way then got cramp at 17. Really struggled to maintain any pace without the cramp getting worse and I'd of had to stop. Managed to get to the finish and cramped up afterwards. Got to be pleased with a 2min pb though. 1st half 1:24:07 2nd half 1:20:50. Pos. 726

Guiding a blind friend and hopefully pacing him to sub 4 hours. Go Ken! :-)G *update - well done Ken. Calf strain from 8 miles, so he had to walk a lot. Cracking time considering! Very determined. And it was great fun, amazing crowds and support and atmosphere! That's what it's all about, eh?! :-)G *
first ever dnf, gutted
Running for Phabkids
Better time this year. Training was interupted by long bout of cold/flu so there is scope for improvement next time!
Who built that wall on the course at mile 22?!
Ran with Blind Dave, he had a cold , was going for 3:15 - 3:20
Bobs Your Father
Note to self - don't run a marathon again with a cold!
Ouch! Halfway in 1:25 then the wheels came off at Canary Wharf. Jogged to the finish via various stops for cramp etc.
Found it tough. Too tired to right too much right now, might add more later.
Runner number 4168.

This was hot hard work. Possibly my hardest marathon due to conditions and number of runners. People on their phones whilst running annoyed me. People taking photos whilst running annoyed me. People swerving all over the road without looking annoyed me. Stomach cramps from mile 19. As a race VLM is not good. As a running event you can't beat it.
last time at a proper trained marathon. Anymore after this will be normal enjoyable running + 5 lsrs! This structured plan is killing me and I'm only at week 7
OK - training went perfectly. Didn't miss a session but alas ours is a cruel sport and for reasons unknown it went tits up. a 1:24 half should have put me near 3:00 but I crawled in at 3:11:40 having the wheels fallen off @ 14 mile. ^^^^ comment remains valid.
Ecstatic with the result....will blog tomorrow!!!!
Well that went better than expected! Am pretty pleased with that. However, my failing body has told me no more marathons!! Think it was the 4 bottles of lucozade and 6 bottles of water I had - felt like I was constantly drinking. I think it was following the London Pride fancy dress bottle that did it. I think I beat him - that's something to tell the grandkids.
blimey this seems popular fancy seeingi you all here well 2 weeks to go and iam now tapering training all gone to plan and on target for 4 hours so long as i can stay strong in the mind on the day.
Crap crap crap just didnt happen for me today
Stunned to be in, but very happy.
Aiming to get close to , or maybe even break 5hrs?
Will be dressed up as Madonna as it would be rude not to and I had such a fabulous time as Wonder Woman in 2008:-)
Sorry to the folks who bet on me, it just got too hot n humid to get the PB and I can account fot the 7 mins I am over!
Loved running dressed up again and had a ball again:-)
Gutted! Too many people, too many slow runners (walkers even!) up front causing bottlenecks and/or blocking progress. Couldn't even do target pace for short periods until much later in the race when I couldn't accelerate any more. Worked hard to get good for age, which went out the window during the first 10 minutes of the race! Brilliant atmosphere though and the crowd were great. Note to self: no more big races, stick to smaller fields in local races from now on, unless not bothered about time OR lie about predicted time and push forward into faster starting pen.
A course best, but just too crowded to trouble the PB
Race chip time 4.00.08 Hard work moving from pen 7 in the crowds.
Splits - 9:45, 9:07, 8:39, 8:36, 8:55, 9:16, 9:12, 8:48, 8:31, 8:35, 8:44, 8:57, 8:56, 8:38, 8:43, 9:24, 8:55, 8:46, 9:47, 9:06, 9:29, 9:39, 9:35, 8:58, 8:24, 9:28, 5:19 (0.57m)
Got around *shrug* - chatted to NaomiP
should have stayed in bed!!
Really want to go under 4 hours. The training starts here. 03 44 27
Good run. Enjoyed it. Had a few "stomach issues" in the first half which resulted in a couple of emergency and urgent pit stops otherwise am sure I would have cracked the sub 3:50. Overall pleased though with come back from injury. Sub 3:30 is next years aim.
1st London Marathon. I doubt a PB is on - I intend to enjoy it!
dave the flower
3rd attempt at decent time
First Marathon, had some serious lack of training due to injury. Happy to get round in whatever!
3.30 is a bit of a long shot as have been injured since October, but things are starting to pick up, so still aiming for it...
I know it's lazy but I'm on holiday so here's a link to my blog instead of a race report
Better conditions than expected and a good days racing. PB by 2 minutes odd.
Splits: 7.22 7.04 6.44 7.03 6.55 7.17 7.10 7.09 7.09 7.09 7.16 7.07 7.08 7.08 7.08 7.25 7.23 7.13 7.46 7.15 7.32 7.32 7.27 7.24 8.00 7.52 1.38
Very pleased - big pb, but went out a bit too quick. One bad mile round Canary Wharf, but picked it back up until the last few miles- at 24 my head decided 3.10 was gone, so it was... A sensible 2-5 miles and who knows? Can't sniff at a 16 minute pb though!
This year I will not set off too fast, this year I will not set off too fast, this year I will not set off too fast, this year I will not set off too fast, this year I will not set off too fast, this year I will not set off too fast...................
It worked 16min PB :):)
First time in London, just hoping leg niggle from Edinburgh year and half ago stays away!
START TIME 09:45:18
FINISH TIME 03:11:49
A PB with 3.11.49, but didn't do myself justice as my pacing was terrible (not helped by the fact that my Garmin was as flat as a pancake at the start - must have turned itself on in my rucksack during my travel up to London). Looking at the splits, my race was over over after the first 15k, too much damage done to recover!!! Average pace overall at the 5K Splits: 5k at 6.41 (11s too fast), 10k at 6.43 (9s too fast), 15k at 6.44 (8s too fast), 20k at 6.47 (5s too fast), 25k at 6.50 (just right), 30k at 6.56 (now the average paced has slowed), 35k at 7.04 (really struggling!), 40k at 7.15 (really, really struggling!!), 42k at 7.19 overall and just glad to finish!!!
Cool adn wet start suggested quick time (despite forecast for warmer weather). Started at front of pen 5 and across start in under 5 mins. 10-30 first mile but then 9 min miling and got halfway in just over 2hrs. Tired from 15 miles and had to slow, then walk briefly at 22 and 24 miles before running to end. Hardest of my 4 marathons but pleased that I pushed hard.
I really wanna break 04:00, not sure if this is possible now after picking up a slight calf strain 17 days ago
Hoping for somewhere near 3.30 but you've got to be realistic!
Brilliant day- excellent atmosphere and a PB by over 27 minutes.
2nd year running in with a good for age place. Will be looking for a good sub 3 PB again.....
Post race update: Didn't get a great nights sleep the night before. Set off well at a 2.55 pace as I intended, all well until about 19 miles and the legs forgot the plan, last couple of miles at an 8min/mile pace.
One year I will nail a sub 3 at London (-;
Original target 4:00.
New target 4:30 - due to Left ITB injury and loss of training nov-feb
Race Day - Right ITB!!!! never been problem before! Started @ 13mi, in serious pain from 17mi onward, managed to get head down for last 3mi to bring it under 5hrs
START TIME 09:48:20
My first marathon, so will just be happy to finish.
A new PB. Very painful from mile 19.
Very happy - especially after having run Brighton.
2455place 2269 for gender 150 for age no 32096 half 1.36 .05
what the hell was i doing?
Gonna be lean and buff!
CRASHED AND BURNED IN THE SECOND HALF, WAS LOOKING GOOD UNTIL 16 MILES
START TIME 09:49:55
A PB, but no sub 3 this time.
First time marathon for me. Would love to get under three hours, but trying to remain realistic, and don't want to set myself up to fail. And I have no idea what is going to happen to my body after running a couple of hours worth of 6'50 miles. UPDATE: Well it was more a case of what on earth happened to my body after 13 miles - basically running out of fuel.
Let's go for it - Target 3:30 Help !!!!!!
Prof Disco Dean
im going to try for 6.45 pace and see what happens! (he who dares wins rodney) UPDATE# well first half went to plan 1.29 then knee trouble coursed me to slow down from 17 onwards so even my second target GFA went beggin oh well on to next one...
Little bit under-prepared from that earlier year ITB trouble, so last 4-5 miles pretty bad (but aren't they always!).
Just ran at a steady, comfortable pace which puts me at around 4 hour mark. Hope I can repeat this pace for the Outlaw Triathlon later this year!
awesome, awesome, awesome day...I loved it. Damn my feckin IT bands...they slowed me down SO much.
Excellent day. Hot and felt rough around 13 - 18 miles but got round in one piece
Not the result I wanted, but at least I finished!
was hoping for sub 3 45 kept good pace up till about 20 miles then faded , oh well only 4 weeks to Edinburgh!
Running with my wife one week after running brighton marathon on my own.
Sub 4 hours or bust. Nearly bust! Just made it, so happy. Slow first 2 miles and then settled in at 8.30's all the way through to 21. Even felt fine though Docklands and Canary Wharf. Going really well, then slowed badly at 21/22M. Absolutely nothing left in the tank at the end, although did manage to run the whole way.
Refuelling strategy absolutely fine, so I thought. Have decided my body is not built for Marathon's - just cant store enough glycogen to keep me going. Will focus on Halves from now on. Was always going to be my last Mara anyway
A bit disappointed with this - really struggled past half way point, breathing impaired by allergy related coughing etc.
what on earth!!!
Was a great experience but knew from the start I wasn't going to achieve a good time. I was placed so far back with all the fancy dress bods in front of me that it took 20mins to cross the start line and my sub 9min mile target pace was blown straight off with a 12min first mile and people stopping to walk already. Gave up fighting through the crowds in the end and the thought of my target 3h50m and settled for ambling round for a 4h32m. Lots fell by the wayside in the heat so pleased to have completed it and raised over £2,000 in the process.
Really pissed about the spectator who crossed the road in front of me at 20miles... Just what you need as the wall approaches!!!!!! Struggled to recover from an overly congested start that didnt ever really move within the first 5 miles.... Not a PB race!!
Was planning to run this at a steady sensible pace, but after about 3 miles I decided that it might be the day for a PB. After a decent first 20 miles, had to hold on a bit, but managed a PB by 48 secs. My next marathon in two weeks at Halstead will have to be slow.
Followed the 9 minute pacer who did a great job getting us in bang on 9mm. However, we didn't allow for the fact that we had run about 26.7 miles not 26.2, because of all the weaving etc.
Loved it! Took it easy for 23 and went hard on the last 3 miles for a strong finish and small unexpected PB
Number 24714 to be confirmed
A very good first half but then plagued with hamstrings cramps. Thanks to the lovely St John's Ambulance people who made it possible for me to finish in respectable time but way off target. Berlin next!
Running for the charity "Children with Leukaemia". I have a daughter, who thankfully is not ill. But if I am going to put myself through the hell of training for and running a marathon, it would only be for a childrens charity.
An amazing day - truly something to savour. Would I do it again - probably !!
pleased with that after all the injuries
Race splits. Fine until halfway, feeling great. Stomach cramps 10-21miles, physically sick 15miles. Legs fantastic

Last few weeks of preparation did not go well for various reasons and I did not feel right on the day. I could not keep a consistent pace with the congestion and was struggling after half way. Sorry to those that bet on me.
made silly mistakes
much harder than I expected - not quite right on the day. So for next time:
eat less food the day before
get the cramp in right thigh under control
What an amazing experience no runner should miss this marathon.
I WILL PB!!

The big one! Looking for a PB here.
Injured after only the second mile so race over as i could not push on so just decided to ease off and get to the end.
Running number was 43135. Wonder if organisers could knock a second off my time!
Great atmosphere. I suffered from, I think, dehydration from about 22 miles - came over feeling lightheaded and nauseous so walked for a while whilst I took sips of water and a gel. Pleased to still come in under 5 hours.
actually ran 26.61 due to dodgin other runners - 1st mile nearly 11mm due to slower runners in front, av pace 8.25
The magical 3 still eludes.....still got to be happy with a PB .... roll on Chicago!
My first marathon and I want to do the best I can. Be chuffed with under 4 hours but quietly hoping to get near 3.5 hours.
Ran with Tommy Clayson and Andrew Miller. Fantastic event and great atmosphere. Started in Red zone 6, which was 9min/mile pace. Probably a bit of a slow pace as I was hoping to pace at 8:20. Meant it was difficult to get up to speed due to the crowds. Ended up doing a lot of dodging.
Ended up running a fairly constant pace around 8:30 and very satified with the result. It was a very tough last 6 miles but my legs felt strong.
Met Jon Matthews at 3 miles and he ran with us until 10 miles.
Disaster. Probably the worst race ive ever run. Cramp at mile 22, walked/jogged the last 4 miles and managed to 20 mins
Very good race race with husband mile 5 to the end crossing the line holding hands. It was special as we both ran the first one in 1981. We believe we could be the only couple to achieve that.
Running for fun, remember! ☺
A PB but Good For Age eludes me!
Club place how lucky for me. MUST - FOLLOW - PROGRAMME - THIS - TIME...
**** If only i had followed my own advice above - two weeks in FLorida for Easter didnt help i guess. First 20 perfect, aroun 7.40 pace. Last 6 went wobbly, walked for 20 secs on Embankment until shouted back into action.
Felt awful the race after during the walk of shame along the Mall. Overall OK, but didnt see Big Ben...
Will be guiding a blind friend at this race and we'll be aiming to break the 4 hours (4.02 at Edinburgh last year). If you are pacing at 4hrs you'll probably see us - do say hello!
Calves were screaming from 19miles and Hamstrings almost cramped which forced me to slow in the last 3 miles
Dont bet on me, injured!!!
Running number: 24783.
In on a club place.
negative split just
I am training hard
Impossible is Nothing
At last a marathon that went (pretty much) according to plan. Ran well for the first 18 miles at a pace leading to about 3:06 then legs started to tire, but didn't feel too bad until last 2 miles when slowed a lot to 8 min/miles. Thought the 3:10 was going out the window but managed to hang in - and a good feeling rounding corner by Buck Pal to see I had enough time. Overall great then, hopefully legs will recover quickly. Went for a Powergel + 330ml water every 4 miles (with sneaky voltarols at 1 and 2 hours, not sure they made any difference). Caffeinated gels at 4, 12, 20 miles. 5k 22:16; 10k 44:05; 15k 66:00; 20k 88:06; 25k 109:55; 30k 132:13; 35k 155:15; 40k 178:47. Result: 1845 out of 36524
Not bad, considering it was hot and crowded and I'd trained on a Get-Round plan (longest training run a slow 14ish), the rest jogging mostly with my baby buggy!
Great crowd support. Well off my PB, understandably, but 3 minutes quicker than first marathon 5 years ago
Just won a Club place
The best laid plans of men & mice......plenty room for improvement...
It was all going really well - I had run all the way to 24.9 miles with a time of 4 hours and 10 minutes and was just speeding up overtaking walkers for a fast finish and then bang, my legs went and I don't remember the rest.
Apparently, I collapsed through lack of oxygen and low salt levels, which effected a lot of other runners, as it was very hot and muggy. I know in hindsight I should have walked a bit, but I was determined to run the whole way.
The next thing I know I am completely disoriented and my Garmin watch said 4 hrs 39 mins, and I was laying on a stretcher in the St Johns Ambulance Centre feeling very scared, as I could not remember the day of the week or anything other than my wife was Caroline!!
Just as well, because apparently when the St Johns Ambulance staff put me on a stretcher I told them I was not married and tried hitting out.
Slowly the St Johns staff fed me water and then sat me up, which was very scary because I could not feel my legs or arms (which were like jelly) and my back was in agony - I have never experienced being frightened, but I certainly was then. They must have been amused, because I still asked if I could finish (I don't know how I expected to do that when I couldn't even move!!)
Well, I must say the St Johns Ambulance Staff from Hatfield, Hertfordshire were fantastic and managed to get me back to life.
After about 2 hours and 20 minutes they allowed me to rejoin the run, with my brother-in-law Iain at my side (a very proud moment for me) as he helped me hobble along, during which time my legs became looser (although I had no intention to run again, just incase I collapsed again). Caroline, Kim and all the little ones walked on the supporters side to see me finish.
I so wanted to finish, but Iain was not allowed to walk the last bit, so I had to build up my courage and walk by myself spurred on by all the support and the knowledge that lots of sufferers of MS suffer far worst experiences then I did during the last 2 miles of the marathon. I am pleased to say that I did it, ending the marathon in 6 hours 54 minutes.
Apart from the experience on the stretcher I must say I really enjoyed it. I saw lots of my supporters along the way and the crowds were very supportive, but I don't want to run another full marathon ever!!
really hoping to beat my time of last year - will depend a lot on the weather on the day as well as how the training goes..
Brilliant atmosphere throughout. Started well back pen 5 blue start and struggled to get going during the early part of the race. Picked it up after 5 miles or so but cruel mother nature steppied in and things got messy (nuff said). However despite that saw my family twice (love them all) and am already looking for another crack at 26.2 miles.
To those that bet sorry wasn't meant to be this time - C'est la vie!!!!
Knackered at end, but really enjoyed it. Atmosphere and support was fantastic.
Ah. Sub 3:30 at last. Paced myself really well and nearly ran an even pace. 99.94% accurate on my pacing. Delighted.
1st ever marathon,
HARDEST RACE EVER, ITS TRUE WHAT THEY TOLD ME, IT STARTS AT 20 MILES!!!
bit warm as well, doing it again???????
Awesome. Just awesome!
The last few weeks lack of running really hurt my stamina. Ran steady for the first half but it was much harder going that my previous marathons. My heartrate was the same as 5 weeks ago and I was running 90 seconds slower per mile! It was still a great experience and I'm glad that the problems that I've had over the last month seem to be over. Hopefully next year I will achieve my initial target of 3:30 hours
Finally achieved sub3:10, which was what i wanted. GFA start much more pleasant than last year's mass start. Went off like an idiot and joined sub 3 pacing group. Beyond my capabilites these days and dropped off after 9 miles. As usual lost a lot in second half - wonder what I could do if I did an even split race. Great atmosphere as usual and running conditions pretty good - so much better than forecast.
Terrible race for me. Couldnt get a decent pace - may have overcooked it with the long runs even though I had a good taper. Too congested for my liking!
Had a fantastic run up untill 22 miles, then my legs turned to lead, but I never gave up - I kept on running and finished the race on a high!!
NOT what I'd hoped for: was running with a mate who got into serious difficulties. This of course means I will have to do another marathon at some point to find out what I really can do - gah!
Haven't been able to train properly for about 5 weeks so quite pleased. Went off a 6 minute miling which was a little quick with my lack of recent training. Felt comfortable until docklands and then began to really put some effort in to keep the pace going. Need more miles next time so it doesn't start to hurt quite so early. Was on for a time in the low 2.40's until mile 21 when the wheels began to wobble. Felt on the verge of cramp, was really tense and didn't quite have it mentally. I only needed 6.45 miles for the last 4 and I'd have comforatble made it, but could only manage between 7 and 7.15. Thought I'd lost my chance at 2.45 along the embankment, but then sprinted the last 800 meters (in 3.04) to come in just 4 seconds outside.
Learnings for next time
- make sure I drink more of my SIS drink (still had over half left at finish)
- when I get tired and legs hurt - RELAX, do not tense up
- maybe don't mess around so much early on as 5 seconds here or there can make a difference!
Overall pretty pleased though as still better than last year
I hate marathons
Tough tough race.
Felt absolutely atrocious the day before and on the morning of the race. Decided to just down a few parecetemol and just go for it.
Stuck to just under 2h50m pace pretty much up until about 20m and then everything just went from bad to worse. With every 5k I was slowing up even more, and my family who saw me at mile 22 said I looked like death.
Hung on in there for a PB, but would have been nice to get under 2.55 (maybe if I hadn't been quite so ambitious at the start).
START TIME 09:45:47
really sooooo pleased with this as I had missed mucho training and only hoped to finish.
whoops............(entered 1.50 by mistake)
Apologies to all the elites!!!
running relaxed and enjoying the fact that I can run
Happy to finish! 1st London dedicated to my dad.
Anything under 4 hours will be a PB, and a great experience.
Going to use the race as a long run for ediinburgh marathon as i dont think my calf injury will have recovered enough to get enough training in to get a good time.
Sheriff of Lentune
Injuries and missed training in March caught up with me at 22 m when I had to walk and stretch about 4 or five times before the finish, but hey, I did it !!
Fell o runner
Sciatic Nerve caused leg to cramp up at 23 miile and had to stop 3 times to stretch it out !!! But what a fantstic event, support was amazing, top atmos !
Perfect weather conditions for a superb London marathon, cool and a bit wet to start with but brighening later. Was good. I wasn't in a right mind to do this race, prob not right physically either, Isle of Mann and Wuthering hike had already taken their toll and I didn't do enough other mileage to fine tune. Nevertheless I went for it and up to half way was doing well, my energy regime was not natural for me and I felt like I was gulping too much water. My pulse was too high early on at about 156 and naturally I couldn't sustain it, good experiment for me really. I need to train so I can get more efficient running at about 146 which I sustained for 3.07 last year, but if I will do other stuff I can't complain. Despite wanting to quit at 16 miles I'm glad I didn't and although I'm stiff as a crack willow today I'm happy I did it and the atmosphere and support were phenomenal. I can get good for age on last year's performance to get me into next year, so all I need to do is remember this and train accordingly and run accordingly to get good for age again! Lots left to do this year inc an ironman and I need to remmember this to do that!
START TIME 09:46:34
Bit of a hopeful prediction here! did 4.50 in my last marathon, but considering I have never really finished a plan or done the current length of long runs! each time something has put the kibosh on my training
If you're not already bored of hearing it, buy me a pint...
New PB !!!!!
Decided to run at a comfortable pace and see how far I got. I got 18.5 miles then I got cramp in both calves!
Before that I was running around 8:15 mm and feeling OK for a sub 3:45 time. When it became obvious I couldn't get rid of the cramp I decided to hobble on and enjoy the day without trying for a time. You get a completely different perspective on the race when your one of the stop/ start hobblers. The crowd focus on you and really shout their encouragement to get you started again.
Fetchpoint was again amazing and because I was hobbling I even got a chance to stop and chat for a while.
Despite the cramp it was a brilliant day!
Back after a year away - hoping all the extra training pays off and the long trips away leading up to the race don't hinder too much. Sub 2:50 is the first goal, if things go really well, I hope to go quicker.
Virgin London Marathon. Something of a miracle I made it after being stuck in first Shanghai, then Hanoi, Vietnam and not due back until Tuesday. Had emergency massage Saturday evening which helped a bit but right hip was still sore and was exhausted standing on the start line - wet and cold too after a rain shower. First four miles went to plan, but it was apparent early that HR was too high and I was struggling with right hip. Pace began to gradually slow through to halfway as I maintained constant HR, but I was enjoying the atmosphere once any hopes of a super quick time had disappeared. Needed to stop for a toilet break at 14 miles which cost me 80 seconds, then continued to fade through to 20 miles as HR was impossible to keep below 165. At 20 miles the planned free for all began and things felt better as I concentrated on running as hard as possible. Only in the final mile did left leg feel like it was about to cramp, but came through to the finish just outside 2:55 - which I was really happy with considering. Weather: mostly cloudy, around 17C.
Following few days saw right hip completely lock up and walking was near impossible. Was suffering exhaustion by Tuesday, slowly recovered through the week.
A 4min PB!! I loved this race!! After all my panics and stressing beforehand (sorry Mr Woo!), I just felt good all the way through!! Tried to keep my splits as even as possible & I'm amazed my slowest mile was 8:01!!! So pleased!!
Could have got under 3:08 - too busy smiling at the camera!
Full of cold all week. Resting Pulse Rate 10 beats a min faster. Gave it a go and eased off after 16.
Ran splits as on garmin, garmin time 2:59:27 the reason for the diffrence I now know is the tunnels around mile 25/24 so missed out just on the sub 3 hrs but still a massive PB. I will be back next year
Get long miles in early as baby on the way.
On my 40th Birthday, and the day after a hard trail race in the Lake District. Small PB chance. Assuming I can get from Cumbria to London in time! There will be beers afterwards!! Lots of beers...
will be very happy to break last years time!
A brilliant day despite the soaking before the off , my 1st London , very surprised how smoothly everything went in the build up to the race , no hassle with trains plenty of marshals on hand to answer any queries , the race its self , i set out to slowly and once you've lost time no way are you going to make it up , only 8 mins outside what i wanted to do so not to bad , plus the last three miles were my quickest !!! , the crowds were amazing in some parts almost intimidating they were that loud !! any way a brill day and cant wait till i get in again.
A 9 second positive split - I'll call that even pacing!
good race. ran longer than 26.2, garmin showed 26.8 due to all the swerving and criss crossing I had to do.
gonna go for it
Absolute nitemare run - first 14 were fantastic but the second half fell to bits due to cramps
Beat PB by 14mins - Happy with that!
This was really difficult to run at my Marathon pace because I was running with people that were much slower than me, there were so many people walking and slow that there was no room to over-take them. If I'd been in my pace group I would have been faster. The race number I had was one that I'd won through a work ballot so was a run/ walk charity fun run type start. The race felt hazardous to me with too many runners in too confined a space. I'm really proud of the time I did given the circumstances.
Started slowly then consistant pace throughout apart from last 2 miles - really hurt legs cramping
tick follows tock
recovering from injury will be looking for 2:50ish with a bit of luck
good race until 20mile point fell off the pace in the last 6 miles 43.30 last 6.2 miles but as i had 5 months of no running got be be very pleased new calfs please
ran 2.52 last year so planning on breaking the 2.50 barrier this year
Not sure why i predicted 3:20 but that was a long time ago ,i had eventually decided to enjoy this one after two hard on pb marathons last year ,what a brill day and i took it all in ,the crowd the noise the smells fantastic ,will be there again next year for my tenth .
Expected after, month off with Achilles and then 1 month under hospital supervision.
Thanks to JEGGSY & MAGDA for getting me to mile 17 on a 3.16 pace
Alf Tupper Tough of the Track
Pretty much on the money with pacing.
It's got to be sub-4 this time....
Update - it wasn't.... but still a PB
last six hurt
It hurt, it hurt lots. Knees are not as bad as the blisters on the insides of my heels.
I crossed tower bridge just ahead of Homer Simpson. I passed the angel of the north coming passed the cutty sark.
The caterpillar with Princess Beatrice passed me but I can't remember where.
Thanks you to who ever it was at the fetch point who gave me some sweets and a ribenna, it was the best ribenna I have ever tasted.
Slower than I hoped for but still 10 minutes off my PB. Not bad for a very warm day!
Very good controlled run with minimal fade. Felt tough only in the last 2. More to come off this PB at Edinburgh hopefully :D
Hmmm, could have been better, could have been worse
5:57 = 60:04 = 6min pace
6:13 =2:01:19 = 6:04 pace
40:58 last 6.2 = 6:36 pace
Warm. Tired after Blackpool Marathon two weeks ago.
Ran with Helen - her pace not mine!!
Having suffered injuries in September / October and having a couple of months rest, I will not be anywhere near my PB. Training has been good, although problems with my knee have slowed me down. I am hoping for a good but steady race and will also be running with my wife which will hopefully mean we are there to support each other From our training I would hope that we can make 4:30.
if I don't get a pb i will be very unhappy - i've trained really hard for this.
Two in two weeks was a step too far but £4000 raised for charity. A personal best of 4:14 two weeks ago so not too disapointed
Had to defer until 2011 due to an injured foot.
Struggled big time from 20, calf twanged at 22 so walked most of last 4, can't seem to get going in the 'BIG' races, need to toughen up!!
Happy with that after just 5 weeks proper training following 18 months of injury. I set out to break 4 hours and just about did it, but was still surprised at how tired I felt.
aim to break 3hrs
Delighted with my time considering that I haven't done any distance work for over a year.
Kept a consistent steady pace all the way tremendous atmosphere, well worth doing
Really pleased with my new PB, but overall didn't enjoy this race as much as the other London Marathons I've done. This time it just wasn't comfortable from about 8M in - piriformis niggle was bothering me. Normally I find it all pretty comfortable until around 16-18 miles, but this time it was hurting even before I'd got halfway. A lot of it dragged despite the awesome crowd support, but I did manage to stay focused and concentrate on my splits which were fairly even I think. Was running pretty much 8 miles an hour but I think pace dropped off a bit in the last 6 miles.
Calculated run prediction based on av. heart run rate of 156 equating to a race pace of 7:38 minute miles
Sheer hell between 18 and 20 miles but I got through it!!
I am still not sure I am capable of running a marathon. Great first 15 and last 2 miles, shame about the hobble in the middle. I have now done a marathon and know how I can train better for next time. But I will give it a few years till I have another go. Bring on the 10k training.
What an amazing experience, cheers pushed me to a new PB, thanks London!
3rd marathon in 8 days
Split time 1' 59"
Need to do more 20+ runs in future training
First marathon - running at a pace I hoped I could maintain. Very happy with the outcome. Half way 1:37:02. Turning the corner and seeing the site of Tower Bridge was the 'London moment' for me. Quads felt like they were packing up from about mile 20 but close enough to the end to be able to press on and run through it.
My first ever Marathon...my time included queuing for a loo break!!
the start too slow,I did 5k in 25m and 30 sec so I lost already 4 min. my GPS complete the distance in 3:07.25..there were at least 300m of galleries that need to taked away another minute at least, that-s why my foirecast I think was accurate
my first ever marathon and can say I did enjoy it and want to do it all again!!Not the best time that I wouldve liked at 5hrs 35mins - but did a slow first half 2hrs 30mins and stopped twice for loo (queued) and a few stops for stretches !(moving time on Garmin was 5hrs 5mins). Recovered much better than expected ,went to work next day and no pain from Wednesday onwards ..........now concentrating on a 2hr Half this year PB so far 2hrs 3 mins at Silverstone (in a pace group)Did everything by the book food wise and hydration wise before and after event ...........FANTASTIC !! loved doing YMCA dance as I headed down the Mall to finish !!
Hard fought PB. The best atmosphere I have raced in.
I knew it would be busy just not this busy, am glad I did it but gave up on my sub 4 hour goal quite early on as was fed up of veering all over the place to find gaps and avoid other runners. My garmin tells me I did an extra half a mile so taking this into account could lose 4 minutes off the time but still not under the elusive 4 hour barrier. Was going to be my last marathon but have already applied for next year and will try for a less crowded marathon to get under 4 hours.
Very pleased with effort in this race.Considering I had been hobbling around with a mild case of Plantar Fasciitis,to run a 2.43 was good enough.
Knackered at 16 miles and it was a slog from there. Brilliant event though crowd were something else
my first marathon
Very pleased with the time. Ran 1.22.27 for first half and 1.27.30 for second. Ran for Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal.
2 1/2 mins in loo @ mile 12! v. crowded.
Felt unwell at 19 miles. Loo stop at 21 miles. Felt very unwell within 1 hour of finishing.
Ok, so it took me a long time but who cares! Amazing day
After a slow start as I was held up in traffic, I ran a very steady paced Marathon feeling good right up to the end. I would have preferred it to have been a bit cooler. Although it wasn't particularly sunny after a shower just before the start the air became hot and muggy. I was pleased with my time,
Felt good for first 8-10 miles but then steadily lost energy and slowed down badly in second half. Disappinted with result but a great experience nonetheless.
walked mile 23ish
Dressed as Batman
A good run felt strong most of the way, did not walk till gone 25 miles

My first marathon....woop, woop
Sciatica strikes again.
First marathon ..ran with Jon .. Gave up trying to get a good time at seven miles and decided to enjoy it ..
I set 3 targets for this
1) Under 4 hours - my first marathon, so a very acceptable time
2) Under 3.45 - this is the biggie. I think if you are male, <3.45 shows you are a serious runner
3) Under 3.20 - this is what I class as super quick
In the end I made 1 and 2, but fell just short of 3. What didn't help is an injury leading up limiting the long runs I did. In the end I had cramp a few times in my calves on the day, so a very bad split, and know with trianing I could (and will) go faster. The atmosphere was amazing however, so the target for 2011 is to get automatic qualification for the VLM 2012! No relying on the raffle then
Depsite my knee pinging after 3 miles I completed two goals, crossing the line and under 4.30
Tree pollen levels high
I was aiming for just under 4 but it was close enough
