I will be posting on here this evening with plans for this Fridays evenings BS Recce.
Also, we need to sort out transport plans for the BG weekend. Who is driving and who needs a lift? x
GBM - I will need a lift please. What time are you planning on heading up there on Thursday? At the moment I am working until 5:00.
GBM - I have a cheap train ticket booked for the Thursday lunchtime so won't require a lift thanks.
I'm cancelling Fridays BS recce as quite a few are struggling to make it. We can reschedule it for another day.
Instead!!! Saturday morning long run. 8am at Rose Hill for a run into and around Lyme Park. 18 miles ish. All welcome.
That was tough in that heat today - 27 miles. 38 tomorrow but at least it will be a bit cooler!
eric - take a tanker for your water, bladders will not be enough. Impressive stuff
Great stuff Eric - keep it going!
Good work eric!

BG Weekend Plan
Friday – Do legs 5 and 1 (those that aren’t bothered about doing leg 5 or can’t make it to the Lakes till early pm could meet up with those that have done leg 5 in Keswick and go on to do leg 1)
Saturday – Do leg 2 and part of Leg 3. Drop down off Harrison Stickle (?) to Great Langdale. If I’m thinking of the right place there’s a National Trust car park near the Old Dungeon Ghyll?
Sunday – Start from where you left off on Saturday, complete leg 3 and do leg 4.
Driving to the Lakes - GBM, JS,
Needing a lift to the Lakes - Ni, Jonah8,
Charlie Batho has emailed me to say he is equally happy to drive or get a lift.
ES, you have picked ridiculous weather for your coast to coast. If you do one again let me know when and I will book a UK holiday.
PPP, I know what you mean about DIY. I cut our new lawn for the first time last night and then tonight tried to do a marathon paced 9 mile run home tonight. Had to slow down and stop at about mile 7 and then amble home at much reduced pace.
GBM - work out how many cars/drivers you need and I shall come if needed to support the JS taxi service.
5ish miles up onto taxal edge this evening, the drop to taxal church was a knee challenging descent though, hopefully no swelling in the morning, fine at the mo.
Enjoy your run today, ES and good luck for the rest of the trip!
Looks like the weather might be kinder today, best of luck Eric
Marshalling tonight at the Offerton 10k, see you later.
I'll be marshalling Offy 10k tonight too

Even steeper than the Offerton 10k
JMC--Do they do a downhill version of that race?
TST--Ok, i thought you were definitely coming so i've booked you a place at the campsite. No problem though, i or some one else will sort out logistics and let you know.
FOAR--Whats this Happy Valley 5k you're sneaking off to without telling anyone?! I can't believe there is a race in my part of town and i wasn't informed! Do you know if its full?
GBM - It's on the race list (thanks TB) so its not a secret .
Its £5 to enter plus a tin of beans or similar for the foodbank. Register at the Ladybrook. I handed my race entry to Julie Fairclough last week and she will hopefully be there tonight for the O10K and can update on entries. Hopefully I can still make tonight and/or tomorrow.
All the best Eric - tough conditions for your challenge.
FOAR-apologies, but you don't need my help to beat GBM, he'd most likely retire from the race anyway , are there any other details apart from Julie, as i'm not around much lately.
DTS-have you or anyone got a view on New Balance trail shoes and whether there a short or full length.
