Thats possibly a downside because 2back 2 back marathons would leave a teeny weeny bit of tiredness, and even possibly an injury. Helsby is a corker to be fair

Yeah, TBH Andy I think one race will just make an intersting/ fun training run that time of year whereas I think if I tried both races it could well seriously affect my training well into Febuary. Not worth the risk IMHO.

I once ran 5 in 5 days for charity. Never again.

hi HeOw, neither north or south, pretty much in the middle, I am in lincolnshire, and further to my 10k endeavours, I have been thinking about it and dont really think I am built for a quick 10k, so will concentrate on half and full marathons.

Hang on hang on hang on; Gaz, what's all this about marathons at New Year?!

Scott, get some 1km-1 mile intervals in at 5k-10k pace, that would do the trick (if you are not already). I actually think that I couldn't get my 5 or 10k times down any easier by doing specific training, I'm a definite advocate of endurance training and a tempo a week with an interval session when you can, will stand me in good stead. Unless I wanted to run for Team GB, I'd rather do what I enjoy and just hope it helps with shorter races.

Mattl - really??!! Blooming heck. How's the foot by the way? You made a definite decision re marathon?

I'm doing Stockport 10, it would be nice to extend my forum friends

HeOw - totally agree re: 10K training

5m jog tonight and the combo of massage and rest is starting to work- piriformis is loosening up and my legs are beginning to feel like my own.

Even starting to toy with the idea of RACING Snod, rather than just going along for the ride....

Jason, Jason, Jason, I have just spent 10 mins pondering whether you would suit a racing snood (I imagined it was a racing green one).  Then, the penny dropped...  Yes, I imagine racing it would be ok?  You aren't exactly a novice at the running shit. 

Mish, I shall see you in the glamour pool of Stockport!

HeOw- LOL! It's just that running eyeballs out= extra recovery time afterwards= delayed return to base= delayed return to hard training.....

Good luck to all racing! Look forward to the reports

Oldham Half Marathon on Sunday, any other takers ?

19/10/2012 at 23:45
Hey Sir John, did the Oldham 1/2M year 2000. Remember it as very hilly and very satisfying. Tough course but had one epic battle during our club run. Look forward to your feedback.

Heow - yes, I ran the length of the Leeds to Liverpool canal (128 miles) over 5 consecutive days for charity. The longest day being 30 miles and the shortest being 22.

My foot is on the mend thanks. I managed a track session on Thursday and I managed a decent run outdoors yesterday. Not completely out of the woods yet as i can still feel it (only ever so slightly) but hopefully my scan in two weeks will reveal all. Definitely on the way back though.

I think I'm going to go for Manchester next year. It's on my birthday too.

i am doing Oldham as i live near the course    yes very tough

20/10/2012 at 10:27
Hmmm, there seems to be a bit of chatter about Manchester, what do I need to know?????
20/10/2012 at 11:54
There's 2 places for VLM with club, so will see if that comes to anything, if not Manny marafon for me too. Scott, go for it, if only so you can be an extra in my race photos...
20/10/2012 at 11:55
Matt, well done on epic 5 day runs, did you raise good money? Glad foot is ticking over. Fingers crossed nothing sinister on scan.
20/10/2012 at 12:49
Managed to get ??2000 for help for heroes. Collecting the money was harder than the actual run! Haha.
20/10/2012 at 16:53
Mattl- well done on the run and the fundraising.
