Anyone else taking part?
Do you think it would have stopped snowing by June?16 and a bit hilly miles on Saturday in what can only be described as torrential snow.Fortunately the roads back into town were clear as grip (in road shoes) was negligible on the country lanes.
I have ordered sun and a cooling breeze
Woodlandbear - I've been tempted by the Jurassic Challenge for a couple of years - what is the middling time for the 3rd leg, do you reckon? And do many people do all three?
Woodlandbear - well done with that! I don't live down there but I have a place to stay on Portland and go down there maybe 3 times a year - I've done a few runs up the hill at the east end of West Bay (which taught me to start very slowly and slow down!). I might go for just day 2 next year and see how I get on.
...and regarding DNF - I had done 92 races before pulling a dnf in an off road duathlon in January (I fell off my bike on ice and was pissed off rather than properly injured). Then I pulled out after one lap of a 2 lap "adventure race" on Saturday - I wasn't going to crawl through foot deep mud in the snow a second time when my hands were still blue after the first lap)
ok chums less than three months to go
eek, better get some running in then.
warm in Sydling today
I've done 3,5,8,9 & 10 miles this week - the 10 was the Maidenhead 10. I have to take my visiting daughter for a 3 mile shuffle in the morning, and the plan is for a 15 miler in the afternoon. Otherwise I am relying on a number of half marathons to get me through the Avebury to Stonehenge Marathon in May. Haven't run longer than 13.1 since Abingdon Marathon in October.
This weather is bloody mental - today's 9 was yet another run with a hat and gloves on - cold body, hot head.
*ponces in to thread with smug look on face*
First 20 miler done and dusted
(and now the reality ... it was absolute purgatory from about mile 10 onwards courtesy of a distinct lack of running for last week and a bit due to snowmageddon up here in North Wales, and the refitting of our kitchen)
We seem to be popular on the continent 2 more entries from the Netherlands
Have they heard about the hills?
well done on the running bruce.I have had a couple of good runs this week, clearly my cold was holding me back, I'm not tired anymore. However it does appear to be snowing again.
Hockey over, track on Weds now.
Can anyone tell me if this is full yet, thanks.
Not yet full, nearly will take a few extras, sneak them past the WI bouncers at the door
