Cameraderie Rules! SNOD
arch stanton, TR38, I too doing Conwy half
will try and look out for you!
After some reflection on Snod, will DEFO be back next year to try and do the race justice after blowing up this time. Fantastic route...
Am I being blind or is there not a ratings page for this year's race?? Could someone post a link if there is?
I had such a good time on Saturday. I'm still smiling today and I'm sad the weekend's over. My quads are still burning from that descent though. Probably won't be back next year (but hopefully to support) but it's a definite for 2012!!!!!!!
TR38,GL I'll see you in Conwy.
JB I'll be doing the Nick beer and the Pier to pier. I was talking to John Hatton the Llandudno 10 race organiser (he lives in Eglwysbach, he's a NWRR) and it looks like a corker of a race.
He's secured @ £25k of funding from the Assembly, and this is going to be a regular in the race calendar from now on. (funded again next year to a lesser extent).The route is also a fast one. (cant quite remeber which way he said it was going but nearly all flat!).
26 is enough let alone 30 T-Rex. Gloucester will be my second and The North Devon Village Marathon will be #3 before Berlin in September where I hope to go sub 3:10.... Luton was full
CT, i definitely wont have the pleasure of your company as you will be miles ahead lol. Will be interesting with the 3 laps.
Regarding chip times I always use that as my time, I'm not ever going to win so dont feel I have the right to be at the front of a race, therefore my race against myself starts when I cross the line
Trex- Chip time all the way for me, although there wasn't much difference this year as I pushed myself a little further to the front because of the time difference last year. Fish and chips in Llandudno on Sunday even better at 11.23 am after being ill for a week!
Interesting to hear about Llandudno 10..saw it was to be organised by same folks who did Cardiff Half (which I gather was a bit of a disaster) so dismissed it -but if you think it's a good one-then I'm in. Would love to do Conwy Half but petrol costs for my jolly jaunts are costing an arm and a leg so will do local Clowne Half at end of November which is great.
So, how good is recovery. Just been for a very gentle 7 miles in the rain, in the dark..but no hail or thunder!
Most enjoyable and rewarding race I have ever run. great scenery, support and camaraderie.
Would also like to rate it, but it doesn't seem to be listed on RW events.
My club mate who finished in 4:16 ran 11 off road the day after Snod then 12 the day after that ha ha also straight after the race he had a 5 hour drive home to go to a party
I did 3 last night and hurt all the way
I like to have 5 days off after a marathon, or 7 after an ultra. Got to let any DOMS or inflammation issues resolve themselves first.
stret - a huge target. Is that based on your half marathon time? I suppose you will be looking for about 3:25 - 3:30 in Gloucester, first off, then? It's a nice 3-lap rural loop after a rather horrible first 3 miles of housing estates. Make sure they don't send you around a fourth time with the 50Ks! (It's been known.)
T Rex did you not go walking up mountains the day after I thought walking up the stairs of the Travel Lodge was bad enough..
I haven't really based it on my half time, just feel this was my first real year of running so should hopefully have quite a bit more to give if I train well. Not overly worried about my Gloucester time, just want to check Snowdonia wasn't a fluke I will definitely make sure I don't run the fourth lap ha ha
Time will tell if I'm expecting too much of myself.
Heavy Legs - only just seen your post now on the 30th - didn't realise I zipped past you at the end, what number were you? I expect you got to Waunfawr before me ( I was at mile 22 in 3 hours 4 mins). I managed to run more of the uphill than last year but I kept having to walk to stop hamstring cramp setting in. It did eventually cramp up and I lost 3 mins at mile 24. Downhill was great as it took the strain off the hamstrings but I could feel them and calfs starting to go once it went flat. I was going quick as I desperate to get to the finish before they went again - if that line had been any further I reckon I'd have had to pull up again!
Llandudno 10 sounds good. It's the same day as the Old County Tops which I'll be doing again. Just hope it's not as hot as last year .
