Has anybody recieved their runners number yet?
Nothing here either, thought they were being posted this week too!!
I'm doing this one too, and looking forward to the last few miles...
I do plan on destroying that climb though.
The last three miles just look horrific!! I went out for an 11 mile run today and finished in a hill and found it so tough, on the day I think I'm going to have to just push through and hope I can put mind over matter!
Hows everyone elses training going?
Training is going well! I'm in good shape for the distance. I haven't managed to incorporate a solid 2.5 mile incline but I've been running plenty of shorter hills. I think the challenge for me will be to get the pace just right for the first 10 so that I have enough for the last stretch. I am trying to visualise myself as Killian Jornet on tarmac lol.
Nuts, just noticed that the registration is closed. Does anyone have a spare place?
happy with the distance but like Forbes says, putting a 2.5 mile incline somewhere in there has been a struggle. I think where it is too is just going to be a killer having started off and found ideal running pace, but then again thats why its a challenge i guess!
onlyweakmen, a friend may have a spare place if you are interested.
He would want cost price for the place because last year, he had to pull out due to injury and we offered the place to somebody on here for free, arranging to meet them the Saturday before the race in Brum, only for them to not bother showing up wasting our time. If this is cool, drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I think I may try some more hill runs this week.
Quick Q, for you all. As I did an 11 miler yesterday, what do you think I should do this Sunday, another 11 miler or reduce it in preparation for taper week?
thanks mrandyyu, I've emailed you.

Personally, I would do the 11 miler on Sunday at an easy pace then taper throughout the week, making sure you get plenty of sleep too.
Pack received today
I was thinking something very similar for this coming week / weekend, although with the main ascent coming at circa 10 miles, i think i may just have a couple of 6-7 milers in the week and then find a couple of challenging hills this weekend, as a final prep
I still can't decide, my legs were so tired yesterday and I'm worried about tiring myself out to much. I have however just been out for a quick run, only had time for a 5K and I am so gutted...14 seconds of a new PB. Need to push myself a little harder!!!!
I am really looking forward to this race though, reading on Facebook people have been saying the atmosphere is better than Great North, I hope thats true, if it is it will be brilliant!!!!
I did this run last year and loved the atmosphere but the hill stung me near the end and had to walk for abit and my calves felt like someone had poured concrete inside them. but im really looking forward to it now even more so after having the e mail to say my number been dispatched.
Got my number, chip, etc today. The name's Forbes, the number's 2019! Bring it on!
