Thread: Any of you fcukers got any last minute marathon advice?

  1. #1

    Any of you fcukers got any last minute marathon advice?

    I've turned 40 and as my wife and two children mean I can't afford a sports car, I've opted to run a marathon for my mid life crisis. This Sunday I will be in Seville with 14,000 other people running 26.2 miles as quickly as possible.

    So how about it AWIMB? Apart from don't do it, do you have any advice to offer me?

    23C, lots of water and take your time. Know 2 people who've done themselves serious damage doing the London one.

    Oh, glwtp

    will there be plenty of defibrillators en route, m?

    I've generally found you only need one. I mean its not like they let you carry on with the race after using one, is it?

    23C once the day is at it's hottest. 11C when it starts at 8:30. I'll be done by midday and enjoying a beer in the shade.

    well, you don't want to be 13 miles from the nearest one, m...

    I'm sure you'll breeze it, m.

    Without incident. Apart from the chafing and the bleeding nipples.

    Get some Glide.

    3 1/2 hours, impressive. Not that you'll actually start at 8.30, probably take 30 minutes to actually start, so you'll be finishing off in the heat of the midday sun

    Already got it and although I have used it a few times, to check it out sort of thing, I have not had a single bit of chafing or bleeding nipples in over 550 miles of training in the last 16 weeks. I will whack a load on for Sunday though, just to be sure.
