Countdown???

Post  Brisbit on Wed Apr 08, 2009 1:38 pm

Oh my goodness me! I still haven't told half my friends I'm doing the Marathon - Been living in denial for so long about the craziness of it all. I need to get my act together!

Can't decide if I'm nervous, excited or totally scared!?! Or maybe I'm secretly looking forward to it... how's everyone else feeling?

marathon nerves

Post  JSIMMONDS on Tue Apr 14, 2009 4:00 am

I can't understand why I am so nervous. After all, I'm not going to win so what is the problem??

Still, I am basking in the glory of my knee being fine, my ankle being fine and all being well with the world.
Hope everyone's niggles and aches are settling down in this wonderful taper phase!

Nervous

Post  Rufus on Sat Apr 18, 2009 4:14 am

This time next week I will be even more nervous and packing for the big day!!!!!!!!!

Definitely nervous... as have a few of the finer details to think about still... thought I'd jot them down to make them seem less substantial, any thoughts will be appreciated.

(i) Still need to figure out how I am going to make it to the expo next week - work is chocca! I guess worst case scenario is that I go on Saturday - though I can only imagine that is going to be MANIC!

(ii) Gutted as I have not managed to try the gels out yet in my training. Know that I shouldn't try something new on the day but also worried that I will hit the wall if I do not replen my carbs in someway. Will electrolytes suffice?

(iii) Hmmm have just got back from hols and concerned that my 'taper' (which fast became 'do nothing') has been a little severe - oh well too late now.

See you all soon!!!!!

Don't worry

Post  ptc575757 on Sat Apr 18, 2009 3:26 pm

Hi Rufus

Don't worry about next week, I'm not going to London till Saturday morning, same as you .....work! I'm planning on getting to Excel late morning, so should have plenty of time to register.

Gels, it's always best to try something new prior to the big day, but don't get hung up about them, you can still have two or three on race day with water and you shouldn't have problems. Don't forget good old jelly babies!

Training ..... I don't think anyone believes they've done enough( I haven't) but we ain't going win so just go out there and enjoy yourself.

See you next week.

Expo

Post  JSIMMONDS on Mon Apr 20, 2009 2:19 am

Yep, I am going to the expo Saturday as well. No choice really. Aiming to get there lunchtime-ish. If it's busy, that kind of adds to the excitement!
Don't forget to take photographic ID with you as well.
