I wouldn’t be putting myself on the line if I didn’t think I could go in and win both.
It’s definitely very special – right up there with running the world record,
It is a challenge and I do think it fits together well.
From next week I can start building things gradually back up to normal.
My training’s been pretty good and I am happy with everything.
I try not to worry about things that I can’t control.
I prefer just a women’s race. It’s a totally different game mentally.
As an athlete, there are advantages being with a team and getting regular physio.
I would be happy with an Olympic bronze. What I don’t have is an Olympic medal.
You see, with me, when I’m nervous, I smile and laugh.
I am excited about the announcement. It is a big step forward for the sport, the events and the athletes, that there has been this united stand from some of the major marathons. The results can be only positive and having experience of three of the events involved, I am convinced that their combined expertise...
Boston is definitely a race I want to do at some point, but London is very special to me,
Plenty of people who are 38 have run really well in the marathon.
It’s not a decision to double up, it’s more a decision to use the 10k as preparation for the marathon, … The marathon is still the main focus but I just felt I was in good 10k shape and wanted to build on that. I felt it could fit in without harming the marathon.
I knew I was running a good pace, so I just had to keep it up until the end,
For a while it felt as though I would never get over it.
I am really disappointed to have to miss this year’s event.
I have been doing 120 miles a week, when normally I would do about 140.
I am not going to let Athens affect the rest of my life.
From my training I can get a good idea of what I’m capable of.
I’m confident of what I have to achieve in the buildup to London 2012.
You can be strong and true to yourself without being rude or loud.
