rick... is there any problem with that? According to the website, it says that registrations close tomorrow.http://prestonguild2012.com/?OBH=1223
slightly confusingly, if you click on the link to the entry form, it says that entries are accepted up to the 9th.
Racing two marathons in three weeks is manageable if your training has good volume and is consistent. The key would be to spend three days after Blackpool running each day, but only for 20 mins on soft terrain, you're legs will feel stiff, even terrible, but the gentle running should get rid of it and getting really good sleep is essential! Try and get some normal training in two weeks after and then taper leading in to Manchester. Just be careful.
Im in Walton-le-dale too 9, i bet ive seen you out running a few times!
Oh yes i have had many a run round those parts. I like the Houghton / Gregson lane area as there are loads of country lanes and hills to tackle, makes for some good training runs.
If you go the other way, you can cut through cuerdale valley and get to the Leeds-Liverpool canal. Thats a nice run too.
And if you take up the parkrun, your see me on the occasions i go, as i run down via the farm by Capital Centre and along the river to the park, crossing at the bridge at the bottom of tram way.
If your on RunningAhead you should be able to do a search of the area and your find my runs, they will help give you some ideas for your own runs. My runs are usually prefixed with " SC - "
No not in a club, i get asked a lot, like i guess all runners. I just dont think i could fit it in, so would be letting folk down.
I'll be next at ParkRun on the 17th i think, well thats when im planning on doing. I will let you know and im sure i will bump into you running down, as its only about 2 miles. It makes for a hard 5k, but im thinking in time your 5k and 10k times will come down, which a be nice and its a none serious even so you can play around it i think.
Yer ive heard about that muddy bottoms, but it seemed a bit more of an orienteering thing than a run, maybe im wrong though.
And yes we are lucky that W-L-D is places so close to so many parks, walk ways and country lanes though which you can spend most of your running avoiding main roads.
If you make any runs on RunningAhead save them with the prefix " 9 - " then i will know that they are yours, then I might be able to pinch some of your ideas lol
