WADAC marathon wisdom

We want to compile the definitive WADAC guide to marathon running and would like your help.  

Whether you're a member of the 100 Marathon Club, a first timer, a get-rounder, elite, GFA, a never-againer... we'd like to have your input.

While you're kicking around in the weeks before/after your spring marathon, please email Lou Walker with some (or all) of the following while it's fresh in your mind:

 

  • training - what helped you, key sessions, your big mistakes, what you wished you'd known etc 
  • preparing for the day - essential kit, travel/accomm
  • tapering - how long, what helped you fight Taper Madness, top tips
  • how you deal/dealt with niggles and injury
  • nutrition
  • Race Day dos and don'ts 
  • recovery and returning to training
  • anything else you can think of that might help another club marathoner or someone thinking of havng a crack at 26.2 miles.

We'd like to include as many quotes from you as possible but if there's anything you'd rather keep anonymous, that's fine, just let Lou know.

We're not sure what format the guide will take yet, but we know we want to gather the huge collective knowledge and experience from our members.

Thank you.

Eastleigh 10K results

Well done to the 65 WADAC runners who finished the Eastleigh 10K today.  The results are available here.

The women once again took top honours, winning senior and vets team competitions.  Lucy Elliott and Lynne Whitaker both won their vets categories.  Congratulations to you all.

And to Martin Mannion as the only winner for the men (first V50, but erroneously awarded third V45).  It was a very competitive men's race at seniors and vets levels - 14 men running sub-32, 4 vets (including our own Alan Murchison) running sub-33.  Had there been a prize for second vet team, I reckon we would have got it, but National Masters 10K champions Brighton and Hove AC were too good for us today.
