Steve said:Welcome Katten,
You've obviously got plenty of experience. Are you a member of a local club? If not joining one would help you train for Amsterdam.
I did the Amsterdam 1/2m a few years back....well actually I didn't.....I suffered food poisoning after eating a dodgy chip the night before the race and was sick all night. I started the race intending to run it with SWMBO, felt fine so after about 2k went off ahead only to start going backwards at 5k and dropping out just after SWMBO went pass me.

Of course it was a chip...mind you the piece of cake I had with my coffee did taste a bit odd....:dhot foot said:Hang on a minute. So you were in Amsterdam, the Capital of dodgyness, the night before a race.
AND YOUR BLAMING A CHIP FOR YOUR POOR PERFORMANCE!!!!
I think there may be something that your not telling us Steve.
Well it was "man food poisoning" so obviously a lot worse than yours Trin!Trinity said:pah... lightweight!
I ran the Cardiff marathon with food poisoning...finished in about 4.03 (which included stops to be sick!)...and it was cold and raining
I was very ill after though....I wouldn't recommend it
