That'll teach me for thinking about it for so long, it was open for 3 days and now sold out so have written a begging letter. Am still liking the idea of a Marathon so may look around, maybe even the Inverness Marathon, or Liverpool.

I knew it would be a popular race. Is Inverness the same as Loch Ness as that's had good reports.

Andi thats a shame.... Good luck with your begging letter but looking at alternatives may have a more positive outcome.

LSR of 9 miles completed today, Brighton HM training remains on track

13/01/2013 at 20:02

Yes HM4, one and the same and yes, it sounds like a good one and not so far from me as York

Lisa, will keep you guys informed and well done on 9 miles today. My calf is a little better but last nights resistance bands have left me with a sore hamstring

Hi all not been on for couple of days how are the ribs feet calfs?

Did my longest run yesterday 7.68 yesterday hard going by myself have been chatting to people at my new club online tonight and a few have entered the same half as me and they have suggested we meet after club night tommorow to arrange a few of our long runs together can't wait I think that is what I need a running partner for having a chance to finish in a decent time

I have also started twice now a week very short run with my neighbour just back from Having a baby so that's a boost as makes me realise how much I have come on when I'm encouraging her to do the walk run technique

7 weeks till my half gettin a bit too close

@Samantha I read that you can run a half off 9 miles in training, so it sounds like you're going well.  Personally I'd like to have run the distance at least once in training, but you have plenty of time to build up to that still

Thanks Daveo that's made me happy to hear lol. Yes I think I'd be a bit more confident if I can get to 12 miles at least once before the race.
13/01/2013 at 20:58

As Daveo says about the training Sam and sounds like you'll be just fine on the day so good luck

Ended up last night having long Facebook forum chat with several members of the new club I'm at and at the end of it it's planned that a few of us will meet in the last 7 weeks before the half marathon for a long run together on a Saturday to help us all get through it. I've not even met them all yet but SO friendly and all in same boat with training plans.

Track club night tonight speed sessions, needs to be speedy to keep warm I think lol

2 miles on the running machine tonight.  I ran about 500m and thought maybe I'd be more comfy if I upped the speed a bit... so I upped it.   1000m later, I upped it a bit more, then a bit more, then 2 miles came and went without me wishing it over even once, and I stopped so as not to overdo it.  So happy - I haven't enjoyed a run so much in ages.  Rib's on the mend too - no pain bouncing on the treadmill today.  I feel great   Here's to recovery!

14/01/2013 at 21:26


Excellent.  Good luck.


Well done.

Daveo that's fantastic!!!

Club session last night loved it fab atmosphere but omg we where bitter and we where sleeted on and the icy wind just made us more cheerful really it was such horrid weather nothing else to do but be laughing. Coaches are excellent this club really encouraging never making me feel out my depth
15/01/2013 at 17:23


That's really great news.

16/01/2013 at 07:17

Sam that sounds like a great running club.

Daveo fab news on your run, really glad things have turned a corner for you.

4.75 miles run last night - still try to decide what to do tonight. Either a recovery run of about 3 miles or try my local running club (again) for a speed session. Will see how I feel later.

16/01/2013 at 18:19


Well done.

17/01/2013 at 19:48

Well I opted for the 3 miler last night (typically). However did a tempo 5 miler this evening in 42 mins so pleased with that. Think I only ran so fast as it was sooo cold out there. Will take me all night to warm up again!.

Here's hoping that all the snow arrives and disappears again quickly - really want Spring to arrive now, am done with Winter.

17/01/2013 at 20:03

Another 2 miles on the treadmill tonight.  Calves a bit tights, but things seem to be basically ok so far!

17/01/2013 at 20:04


Second that regarding Spring.

18/01/2013 at 00:01

Forgot to tell you - we have all the council permissions and everything, and our first Cheltenham Parkrun will be on Feb 16th!
