Howdo arfNarfers, I really hope training has gone better for you guys.
No surprises really given how quiet this thread has gone, but my running has taken a tumble; Bern's Six Nations in the one year remains a challenge up for grabs - I shan't be completing them this year.
Lots of reasons and excuses, but the simple fact is I have not done anywhere near the miles needed; if I ran more than 10 miles in September I would be amazed (my running has been so pants I haven't even logged it!).
I picked up a groin strain just after Edinburgh which has not cleared up, cross training was not consistent enough to help.
The great news is I am slowly improving and can now run about three miles without discomfort - Good news for my recovery, but well pants for marathon running!
So, the arfNarf... those of you who wanted to do it, what would you like to do? If you have trained for the 26.2 I can still help you guys by doing the arf route with you, no problems at all - It is a cycle route after all! I can even provide a mobile drinks station!!
As for publicity, I have deliberately kept quiet since my rubbish training as I didn't want to turn the event into a farse. - The upshot is the publicity angle for a Cardiff Marathon remains intact and untainted; ready for a better approach maybe next year.
I agree it's not what we wanted, but it's not all glum news either
