I'm going to enter Barcelona in March, good warm up for a couple of Ironman races later in the year.

Ran 5k on Saturday after taking 4-6 months off to see if my knee needed the rest. Seems to have worked - and I was only 1 min/km off my most recent pace. 

Now I'll see if I can work myself up to two 5k runs per week.

Has anyone run along the canal in Walsall? I'm staying at the Premier Inn by the Art Gallery and need a place to run on Saturday morning. Otherwise I'll head over to the arboretum.

Jesus did it, but most of us run on the towpath alongside the canal...

Joking aside, the towpaths round by me in Tipton and Tividale are great for running, lots of locks so quite picturesque.

Nope, but I've got a charity place!

Which means that shit, I've got to run for 26 miles.  Bugger.

Hardest bit of London, in my experience was raising the money for charity, and everyone that gave me a penny I was grateful for and still am, it took me a while to hit my target, so that was the biggest challenge for me!!!

Now to the running I didn't realise I ran it on a torn ACL, and now I have just recovered successfully from said injury, still re-habing I can't WAIT to start running again!!

Are you following and specific plan? - Wait till tapering the best thing in the world.

Advice for London, ENJOY IT - the noise over Tower Bridge is the best feeling in the world, make sure your running top has your name on so people can chant for you!!!

Yes, I'm following one of the training plans on the London Marathon website. Up to 10-12 mile sessions at the weekend at the moment. I'm both looking forward to it and shitting myself at the same time!

You will do well Risso (knowing what a bloody minded person you can be). I mean that as a compliment by the way.

You will be fine. Best advice i can give is don't get carried away by the momentum at the start. Pace yourself and don't go off too fast, just get into a nice easy rhythm that is easy. You can always make time up later if you still have energy left.

Finally settling into a manageable training pattern - progressed nicely from 5k to 5 miles and now up to 10km as of yesterday.

I might have a half left in me after all.
