at least you didn't pee in the wardrobe...........
My friend has a pair of 5 fingers bare foot shoes.... would she be able to run in these?
Ania, thats just weird, fingers on your feet or will your friend run on their hands ?
Anyway I will enter this one as my good friend AndyP says its a good one!
Hi FH - def a good run - how's it going for NY prep?
Ania - not sure about the "barefoot" footwear - there are some parts of the course that are gravelly towpath stretches. How robust are the soles of these shoe types?
On last two weeks of training for Lake Coniston Mara on 1 July, will then take 2 weeks recovery and then I think it will be 16 weeks of hard training for NY.
Training for this one has gone well and I hope to do a good time for the course.
How are you doing ?
Added a few more race for my year of running, have a look at :-
Entry form is in the post
Probably won't be fit enough yet to run it, but may well be there to give y'a yell, Mutts. Hey...do you think that after ten years we might get to meet at last?!
Greetings Mr K ... haven't seen you for a while. I note you weren't at this year's Midsummer Munro. Probably a wise move because it was a special bonus edition - 16 miles. It'll take me all week to recover.
Jj ... 'twill indeed be good to meet ... we're a bit like ships in the night
FH - some dodgy photos there my friend!!
I have a spare place for this up for grabs if anyone wants it. Drop me a line and we can sort out the details.
Hello Mutts, hello andyp Muttley - Been a bit out of action, now building back up. What happened at Box Hill this year? Did not read the large print - 16M?? How are the legs now? Are you at the Salisbury 5-4-3-2-1 ?Looking forward to this one - it`s a nice one. I just hope I remember to drive to the finish first. Anyone else getting the coach?
This year's Munro was a special once-only Olympic-year "ultra half marathon" with bonus miles and climbs. As ludicrous as ever, only more so. My legs are shot, even now.
I'm looking forward to the Down Tow. It's flat.
Does anyone know where the coach starts from?
I will be away the week prior to the event and I may miss any notification from the organisers.
Looking forward to this one as it is local one for me and here there are some nice pubs up near Marlow for afterwards. Regarding the route and the Dorney section, saw this on their site..
"<span style="color: #ff0000;">please note that due to the Olympic rowing venue being situated on a section of our route, we have had to detour away from this area. Therefore, this year we will start in Slough and be using the (fantastic!) Jubilee River for the first half of the route, before rejoining the original route at Maidenhead Bridge."

Good spot PL, I don't want to offend too many people on here but Slough is no Windsor
Means I'll have to run it again in 2 years to do the proper route
Come friendly bombsand fall on Sloughit's not fitfor habitation now ...
Sir John Betjeman, you can't argue with him really ...
Its a shame. That part of the Thames has been closed for Months so that a new bridge can be built from the rowing venue to the racecourse side. Currently you have to run around the rowing lake on a 'slight diversion'. Once the Olympics is over, the new bridge will be taken down.
I ran between Windsor and Marlow recently - the path was well boggy and rutted up in parts. Hope it doesn't rain.
This is an annoying change they have made...the organisers recommend to get the train to Burnham but the first train from central London on a Sunday morning doesn't get to Burnham until 9.20am - with 3 changes?! Not good pre-race prep!
Does anyone have a quicker route or an idea of walking distances from Slough?
If I had know it was going to start in Slough I would have had second thoughts....
There's trains from Paddington arriving at 0820 or 0920, direct, no changes.
Thank you, that looks perfect for me - and very quick....this has calmed me down a lot!
