Hi Hillheader, hope your trainings going well. If you can get the right balance between recovery and not losing fitness you'll be fine. Did Paris and Edinburgh 2 years ago which were 6 weeks apart. Didn't really work too well for me for a number of reasons too boring to go into now. Personally I'd stay a long way away from this thread at the moment. There appears to be a bug going round. First Philby and now Dave....
Feeling OK myself at the moment, errr touch wood. 18 planned tomorrow hoping to get it in before the promised freeze sets in....
Have a good weekend all.
21 miles done this week so far.....new shoes to try this weekend!!
I've not picked up any bugs so far - touch wood.
Those look neat shoes. I like the Solomons for their laces at least.
Snow and ice forecast for next week. Just got a new set of spikes for my "ice" shoes.
Hope people recovering from any bugs. 40 miles so far this week for me. In the hills tomorrow.
Welcome back hillheader. I did VLM and Edinburgh last year so it's very do-abale and there was less than a minute difference in my times.
RUNSTREAK IS OVER - DAY 30!
Managed 6 miles on day 29 and I felt OK to be honest but I went downhill rapidly after that. To make it worse I was working away in London and as I came back on the train yesterday the train manager wanted to get me medical help. I was in a real shitty state and a little bit delirious.
Anyway, on the antibiotics now and should be back running tomorrow (I wish)
Has anybody got a spare set of lungs I can borrow until mine have evicted this phlegm gremlin? Started with a stupid dry cough before Christmas which has developed nicely into a hacking phlemmy cough...very attractive Playing havoc with the running I can tell you.
I can confirm by the end of the marathon it is getting a tad warm but not unbearable so you'll be fine Philby...its the 20th Anniversary of the marathon this year so there is something special planned at mile 20 and the Mickey medal is a special one...we've seen pictures of it and it looks seriously awesome.
We'll be at Edinburgh...we're doin the half so we'll keep the seats warm in the White Hart...Is it recovery KK doughnuts this year Dave???
Snow is predicted for Monday, I've seen some Yaktrax somewhere recently but I can't think for the life of me where I saw them so may have to go on the hunt this weekend.
We're off to parkrun shortly and then heading up to Gretna to pick up Mr CS bird...he had a cockatiel (Spikey) when we started going together but when we moved in together he got shipped off up to Mr CS parents...unfortunately they're going to Oz for 2 months so Spikey has got to come and stop with us.
Just back from a hill run with club - innov8 were good. About 8in of snow higher up with lots of slush lower down. Might be able to get my running snow shoes out soon!
Hope you soon get better Caz - miserable trying to exercise with a cough / cold. Hot whisky and honey perhaps?
Phil you can't have got many pictures with the characters...that's the whole point of travelling a million billion miles to run nearly 40miles in a weekend Personally I'd set off at the slower pace and get maximum exposure with Mickey Mouse...it is HIS weekend after all. Well done on the time though hunny.
Well done Phil. Said before just enjoy the sights tomorrow. If you really want to set a marathon PB we'll pick one for the Autumn......
