Anyone up for it?
First post on here-directed here by cake from a post on another forum.
Have just found fell / trial running after the last year of raod running around s11.
Is this off road running much harder than road for everyone or is it just me? but what a fab way to run-completly converted-would like the off road to aid my road 5k-hm times on road-not sure it will though, should help the Hathersage hilly though.
Stanage to grindleford cafe round route, pitch black-head torch and dog with falshing collar most enjoyable run so far, pace 9:20 though for 7 miles the same distance on road with the normal s11 hills would be 7:30 pace with the same effort factor!!
As I am new to this fell/trial running I am after advice on any good local routes please, plus races good for beginners.
Different. Slower, can be less impact than on tarmac, but also be sapping piling through mud. Great fun though. Off road'll strengthen your ankles as every footfalls different. My 1st few months were plagued with twisted ankles though.
hilly's a nice tri - did it last year
Good races? Check out the Totley AC website. Their race series starts at the end of the month. Or try the Trunce. Run 9 times over the spring/summer for £1.25
running eye and Garry mentioned the T word
well back into training full pelt Monday spinning , Tuesday club run , Wednesday lane swimming 70 lengths , 19 mile bike ride today and a 7mile run from heatherdene car park in the morning . Looking forward to the Hillsborough park run think I might ride down then go for a ride after
Good running Pjaz graves isn't an easy park run
Yeah, well trainings been going well for me, 7 days to go to Brass Monkey half marathon.
Well it was going well till Thursday. Speed session 25x200m. I got halfway through before quitting. Gut pain and I figured to continue to run through it would be daft, this close to the race.
I know it's not cramp and not a stitch. Not intestinal either. Did a bit of googling and I reckon it's classed as a 'sports hernia'. Not a real hernia, it's a bit of a catch all term.. sort of like 'bad back'.
I'm starting an extreme taper and hope it sorts itself out....
Oh yeah. I know what I'm doing October 20th. I've entered the Jane Tomlinson Yorkshire Marathon at York. Training scheduled to start July 1st
Don't know how that happened, s'only a week ago I said apart from Grindleford I was maxxing at half marathons....
hope things sort themselves out before the BM Garry was looking at the Jane Tomlinson marathon but was to late to enter its full so going to concentrate on a few tries maybe up to half iron man and see what the rest of the year brings
Bit more realistic than what they want for london!
I suspect the entry process may be harder next year. Either more expensive or a ballot system again?
Didds are you planning on doing SIGISHM2K13 this year?
Does anyone think the council will pull the plug on Don Valley Stadium or is it just political manouvering?
wooHoo! life on the ssc!
will read back later as we`re being sent home!
RE - Welcome! I`m probably not the best person to give advice about fell running.
Didds - what`s a `coal club`?! Nice run at GP. Must get there meself sometime but weekends are pretty packed at the mo.
Yorkshire mara sounds good but can`t believe it filled so quickly. New one this year is the Shrewsbury marathon . . .
GI - Where did you get the funding for Hillsboro PR?
Baz - DVS was always going to struggle once Millers left but it is an embarrassing legacy for Sheffield if it closes. I t really needs to be managed a lot better imo.
I hope to be racing again soon after a long break but I did win my last race!
That is brilliant GI. Top work!
Sounds good GIRO. How much work is involved in setting up a new parkrun? Is getting the funding in place the hard bit?
ET hope you're racing again soon.
Did Rotherham really bring in that much money for DVS?
I didn't realise the council would try and charge. Do the other Sheffield parkruns have to pay to use the park they are in.
Sounds like you've done a lot of work. Well done. Hope it all runs smoothly on the 2nd
I heard that Millhouses refused to budge on the charge, which is a shame because it could be a quick course and it is a beautiful spot.
Baz - yeah , I reckon so. Millers would have 25+ home games a year(for 4-5 years) with 3-4000 there and they do get through a lot of pies (ask Jamie Oliver). That income must be a huge loss for DVS but one they really ought to be doing about redressing.
