I stopped my Garmin at 35:45, but my time was 37:10. So my walking time, getting through gates etc was nearly 1:30 (I had my watch on autopause). I am feeling the after effects in my IT band area, especially today.
Please does anybody have a pair of proper waterproof trousers (goretex or similar, mens large size) that I could borrow for my BG?
I've got a cheap pair that will probably be OK, but a high-spec pair would be better in case of prolonged precipitation...
Anyone else doing May Queen tonight. I will probably give it a bash although I've only run once since GMM.
Eh oop! (probably spelt that wrong)
Any news from Richmond Mr Icon?
Aye oop perhaps?!
Just noticed that Huddersfield will be on the Saturday and Manchester probably the next day so might appeal to those mad types like clairster
Mort - never heard of Huddersfield marathon and I bloomin live here. It wont be flat.
Googled it and still none the wiser - organic adventure race ? Sounds like the sort of thing where they will measure the course inaccurately and send folk the wrong way.
SW- You can check it out for us next year then, and if it's any good the rest of us will do it the following year
Good run up Raise this morning and pleased I didn't walk any of it!!
recovery looking good, 1.5 hours on road bike, over to Hayfield, New mills and back over dolly lane, had hoped for a flatish route, but the others thought otherwise. Quite eventful as well, out of 5 riders 2 crashed !! One buckled her wheel going down Highgate into Hayfield, was not good to watch when she hit the wall. Bike hurt she was only shaken.
Minnie - did it raise up your spirits

There's an orienteering event at Lyme Park this evening. Makes a change from hammering round the track.
A couple of reminders!
WBSC night out - Friday 24th May. 7.30pm at The Rising Sun in Hazel Grove. All expected.
Kinder Trog Recce - Bank Holiday Monday, 27th May. 9am at The Scout Hut in Hayfield. All welcome.
Daz--Did 6 miles last night. Hamstring is fine!
Is that night out still happening? Nobody seems to have mentioned it much. I'm still up for it.
GBM (and anyone else racing) - good luck at Shining Tor. Don't forget the insect repellent!
Thanks for the message GBM-sorry we can't make it.
GBM/FOAR - I've accidentally entered Windermere in a vague attempt to remind myself of how to run - if you are going at crack of spugs Sunday morning do you fancy pooling resources.
Ni--Yes, the night out is still on. I'm not doing Shining Tor as i'm saving my hamstring for the weekend.
Poacher--Unfortunately Foxy and i are travelling up to the lakes on Friday to support Daz on his BG attempt. I've never heard of the phrase "crack of spugs' before but i like it and so will add it to my vocabulary. Just googled it! Not even google has heard of it! See you Sunday!
See you there. Spug or spuggy is just Geordie for sparrow.
GBM - Thanks for UB's no. - spoken to him now, he's still on for Wasdale road-support
