not had one for a while but that's a RED CARD! for Plod

Edale's organiser has said that the race will be on so long as the road is open to get there - although there are extra kit requirements and they will be rigidly enforced.

PPP, OK, I'll be out no matter what. I may ride Sat instead, it depends on how the weather pans out.

So glad I'm not doing Wilmslow. 40mph gusts, 2 degrees. It won't be pleasant.

If I was doing skyline I would probably be wearing every bit of kit

22/03/2013 at 13:19

Heck, not having much luck with half marathon's.  4V cancelled and WHM to be run in rubbish conditions, with a threat it also could be called off.

glad I did not train for skyline, roads to edale blocked so race off, bet there would have been some challenges finding the paths as well.

is wilmslow off?

23/03/2013 at 11:14
Wilmslow is still on according to the website.

Northern 12 stage and Edale Skyline are both cancelled though.

Anyone know what the MWW is like, I need to run at least one more long run tomorrow, not even considering Longendale, at the end of our close, there's 4-5 inches of snow, so that'll be a challenge getting out, did the shopping at 10pm last night.

TB - Just got back from 22 miles on the MW, we came off at the Boars Head and headed into Lyme park but had to turn round just as we got into the park, the weather was horrendous.

The snow was waist deep in a couple of places on the MW, it's the deepest I've ever seen it on there.

The majority of it is runnable it's the open places where it's bad.

Last long run completed, taper time

Snow? What snow?
Zero snow around Manchester, just bloody windy.
Did 17m and felt like crap all the way, so glad PPP couldn't make it. Not even sure what I'm training for at the moment as haven't got a race till June

SARQ-character building

J8-thanks-didn't know you were running today, if I could have got out, I would have joined you, don't fancy a long run tomorrow on MWW?

I made M6 run to the gym with me today then do an hour of pilates and an hour of kettlercise before running home!! I don't think he will be talking to me tomorrow when he can't move!

23/03/2013 at 14:35

23/03/2013 at 15:13

Minnie - surprised he speaking to you today after that selection of classes. Hope mickey has better coordination than me for the gymnastic moves

23/03/2013 at 17:15

Quite glad i am not doing it tbh, but hope the wind is behind you all.
