*knock, knock* can I come in?? Have confessed to my hubby that I've entered so now I don't have to hide my posts anymore!
I turn 40 in November so cramming a few events in inc Rhayader 20, VLM and across Wales ultra in Sep.
Having read back I guess the most important things to do are
- stay injury free
- train on hills
- note where the coffee and flapjacks are
- train on more hills
Anything I've missed??

MA- hi! General rule of thumb is to allow an extra 10-20 mins

Do you not mean 100-200 mins Jason...?! 

Lemmy - thanks for the heads up for Travelodge. Booked it up for me and my running buddy.

Got back to training this week after a lazy xmas (and very lazy lead up to xmas!). Might be pushing a bit too hard in my new found enthusiasm so better back it off a little tomorrow. Local off-road 5k on Saturday morning to look forward to.

Cheers for the Travelodge info, was going to drive there in the morning, but for 25 notes it makes things a little easier.

Looking forward to a run tonight, work very slow today.

12.01m for me today, followed by a warm down of just over a mile. Ran the 12 just a little faster than normal, but it all felt comfortable- must be progress! 12.01m in 1.22.51 Splits: 7:13 7:18 7:14 7:10 7:03 7:04 6:42 6:41 6:39 6:38 6:34 6:30. Happy days..... AGTFSNOD2013

Camlo - Rhayader is a cracking race - great training for Snowdonia. I hope to do it again one day. If you want a cracking Welsh event, there is the Trail Marathon (& half) Wales in Coed-y-Brenin - the full is full now - a few places for the half left

Rhayader is great as is, further south, the San Domenico 20 Both tough, both great fun!

I'm planning Rhayadar too. Training for Cotswold Way Ultra in April

20.21 miles for me shorts

All busy on here again-John-Anglesey Half..any info?

04/01/2013 at 21:58

Nice one brer! It will be the 2nd year of the (new course) Anglesey 1/2m at the beginning of March. It is very well organised (by runners!) - quite scenic & undulating - feedback re last years race was very good. I'd like to support it and use it as a test for my next marathon 5 weeks later, but I've probably entered my quota of races already so I'll probably give it a miss again

Not shorts weather yet in far north although did have my jacket tied around my waist last night

04/01/2013 at 23:01
Brer- Ring of Fire on Anglesey looks interesting....

Thanks for the tips - will look at the trail half and San Dom. Rhayader is my club hence my affection for it! Doing the reservoir roundabout in the morning so will surely see parts of the dams I've never seen before!
Have been out in shorts here too but doubt it will last as we are due to change some windows.
Hope your collar bone is knitting nicely T Rex

Stilldreaming - i havent run either race yet so bit early for the congrats! But very kind. Week 1 training almost complete. Did 45 mins on the treadmill at 12% incline today with the heating on full blast to recreate the conditions in the cannons! Got a good sweat on an good fun too long run tomorrow. Must find more hills...
