Berlin Marathon 24/09/06

Hi everyone,

I have just found this site and wanted to know if anyone is going to Berlin next month.

At the moment im training for it and I run about 50 miles a week, thats between shift work. I live on the North York Moors and all of my running is on country roads.

I've done 2 other marathons the New York in 2003 and Rome in 2005, I'm 38 and hope to do as many runs around the world as I can before i'm stuck in a box and placed in a hole 6 foot under.

Would luv to know your training pattern and share some tips if you have any.

Ray

Hi steepler

Im starting my taper next week, I used a HRM this time and thought it made a contribution, shall we say.

I was finding that I was burning myself out, so by the 14-17 mile mark I was hitting the wall. I still feel it at that distance but find I have enough gas left to get me to the end.

I'm no racing snake, i'm looking for the 4hr mark, under that and I will be jumping for joy.

There are 3 of us going, staying in the Generator hostel, hope it's nothing like the film, post night on the pop that is!
