My friend was going to come with me, but she's still umming and ahhing (as am I as it's a bit of a trek to drive all the way down and back on your tod)... I noticed there were still quite a few places - so I'm dragging her out to a parkrun on Saturday and I'm going to put the persuadatron on her ... I'll let you know after that!

Wouldn't worry about places running out, don't think it ever has. Closing date for entries is Wednesday and you can enter on the day (although it costs more).

Good luck to folk doing Edinburgh at the weekend. Kirkcudbright half for me - my first half marathon since the same race last year. Thankfully, it looks as if it'll be a bit cooler than recent years.

Starting to feel like signing up to a marathon was a grave mistake.

When you’re finished it you’ll be euphoric. Don’t know if you’ve done them before but crossing the line is a great feeling.

I'm mixed in marathons, on the one hand I don't see the point of it what situation would you ever need to run 26.2 miles. On the other hand I would like to do one it must be some feeling of achievement. 

I'm up to 7 miles on a long run at the minute and want to push onto 10 but I'm not sure my knees will take it, if I do get to 10 then I'll push to 13.1 but it's a big if.

How does treadmill running compare in terms of muscle pain and general hardness for others? I am confined to treadmill the now, and I am struggling like f**k on it. I am using it to try and increase my pace so maybe going a bit harder than normal nut just find it hard not to stop

I’ve never done it before, no.

Cheers though. I’m sure it’ll be fine but now the training is done just had all week to think about it really!

Exact same. Training went really well but the taper has me worried.

Also the weather looks atrocious so unsure what to wear now

Depends on how good the treadmill is, to be honest.

I find boredom the hardest thing to overcome while on my treadmill.

Which is gubbed just now, unfortunately - motor won't work.

My last training run is later on today (a short two miles) and that'll take me to 316 training miles in total since the 2nd February.

I initially signed up hoping to do about 1:45 for the Edinburgh Half, but depending on the day I have a chance of breaking 1:40.

Then it's back on the weights in time for summer. My BF% has dropped by about 6% since I started training and I'm down about three stones from this time last year.

I think it's all just psychological. The waiting game is worse than the training.  Come the day I'm sure the body will be fine.

Not so fussed about the weather, I'm just glad it's not a heatwave.

All the best when it comes around, mate.

Same to you mate. The thought of there being a Stewart Brewing tent at the end will get me through the finish!!

Oh yes. I haven't touched a beer in 4 weeks so I am very much looking forward to that.

First time I ran Edinburgh I didn’t touch a beer for the full sixteen weeks I trained. The first pint after it was extra glorious because on the day temperatures peaked at 27 degrees. Hope it all goes well for everyone taking part.

Daft question here....

If I was planning to start the race in a waterproof jacket and potentially ditch it during the run...could I just have my number on my t shirt underneath the jacket? Or does it have to be on show?

Agonisingly close to a half marathon PB at Kirkcudbright today. Thought I'd done it but turns out I was five seconds slower than my PB rather than five faster.

And, of course, I was fourth from the club meaning I'm not part of the winning team as it's the top three. That's the third or fourth time that's happened to me!
