      Am totally with you. I thought the VLM was a version of torment - 26 miles of running through people screaming at you: almost literally a case of the road to hell being paved with good intentions. Never again.
      I found VLM at stages quite claustrophobic, when I was basically dead on my feet at 18 miles as I hit the wall I had to run in the middle of the road as it felt like people where screaming in my face. That was the first team I felt the kick of a power gel, it is how I imagine it feels for athletes to take a banned substance and get a boost. I actually recovered from 19-24 then had to walk most of 25 before getting back to a shuffle and actually enjoyed running up the Mall! The crowds when I did it were massive (estimated at 700,000) as just after the Boston Marathon bomb and people came out to show solidarity. I still have the black ribbon attached to the top I ran in that day.

      I really can't imagine running that far! Enjoy your taper.

      Went out for my second run since last weeks effort, and I have to say I'm feeling good... I'm usually broken for a week after a half marathon, so this has come as a pleasant surprise.

      Great feeling isn't it when you finish your last long run.

      Then doing a ten miler during tapering seems like s gentle stroll.

      Moors Valley parkrun for me in the New Forest. Lovely course if not particularly fast as evidenced by my 21:45 getting me a 24th place in a field of over 330.

      Haha, I have always found this to be complete and utter bollox

      The last 4 miles is a painful shuffle where you ask yourself 100 times 'why did I sign up for this sh*t ?', and where genuinely well-meaning people are cheering you on, but after the 50th 'come on, you can do it' or 'you're nearly there', you feel like saying 'p*ss off you patronising git and leave me alone'

      ..............then you actually finish, say 'never again', go and have a beer, get home and start looking for another marathon to enter
      Yep, exactly how I felt at Brighton last year. only for the last 7 miles.

      Fairly new to running and I've a query about max heart rate...

      Ran the Worthing park Run today, and when i checked my Garmin later my heart rate was at 182 by the end.

      I'll be 50 in May so the rough guide says my max should be 170. I didn't think i was pushing myself too much..

      Should i be worried? Should i take it easier? Or just take it with a pinch of salt?

      Are you still breathing!!
      Seriously mine goes way above what it should do for an average 59year old but if you are fit your heart rate won't do you no harm in the short bursts now and then

      Age 58. My measured Max HR is 186.

      Your Max is your Max,

      220-50 is a VERY rough guideline.
      In this great future you can't forget your past
