Hello everyone! Just joined the forum and would like someone to tell me which part of the Snowdonia Marathon is the hardest! I'm scared cos this will be my first marathon!

21/02/2013 at 20:06

Hi pinkbug, look forward to cheering you on!

21/02/2013 at 22:13

Brrr .... that's one cold wind blowing out there tonight.   Just back from an 8 mile club run and had to run hard to keep from freezing!   Still, at least it was dry, which makes a change 

Hi Christina - welcome to the "madhouse".   The hardest part is entering, the rest is a doddle   There are a few on here who did Snowdonia as their first marathon, so I'm sure they'll be happy to offer a few thoughts.   It's a great race and once you've run it, you'll be thinking about entering again before you've left Llanberis

Thanks jenf, i'll be the tall skinny old granny who thinks she's super woman

Thanks stilldreaming! Did some hill-training this morning and running down was wonderful!

Hi guys- back from the dead again!! I ran our local bumpy trail parkrun in a comfortable 20.08 today, but apart from a recovery run on Monday followed by a sports massage that has been it! This happens EVERY February- work just gets so hectic at this time of year that running has to take a back seat. Might well have to reassess my target for VLM, but hey- ho.... The bonus is that the job lets me train like a demon for autumn maras

16miles in the snow (falling rather than on the ground) up the the pass and back again for me this morning. Nice to clear the cobwebs before the rugby, the Eisteddfod with the youngest and then a party tonight. After football and the usual Sunday madness tomorrow I think I'll be going back to work on Monday for a rest!

Hello team, back from marathon madness-home to unpacking and usual havoc! Snow here too Panad..hope the party is nice. Two weeks until next marathon...

Morning gang
Brer well done matey
Panad good going my friend!
Everyone else keep it up!!

Been under the weather this week still full of a cold, yet yesterday managed to run 2nd fast 10 miles i ever done 1:16:54 28 sec of my PB set at llandudno 10 2 years ago. Didn't feel like i was pushing to hard either B-)
24/02/2013 at 16:29

brer- well done

panad- snow?? Good going!

TR41- hope you shake the cold soon, but doesn't sound like it's getting in your way- lol!

Got my sorry butt out of the door today for a 16 miler (recovery week- although I may have taken that to extremes- lol!) Bit of rust in the legs, but it was ok cos the plan was to run it comfortably- last mile at pmp though 6m all up, 2m flat, 6m all down = 16m in 1.54.19 (7.09 av) splits for those who like that kind of thing :  7:29 7:27 7:26 7:25 7:25 7:29 7:29 7:24 7:21 7:25 7:12 6:43 6:42 6:37 6:30 6:13

27.9m, for the week!!! lol!

Hi team, base camp in order post-hols..why do I pack so much stuff for a week.

TR41..your next event is soon isn't it? Great time there boyo!

JD-couldn't you have rounded it up to 28 miles?

Well, my marathon recovery week mileage has hit an all time madness..27.5 on Sunday (marathon), 12 on Wednesday, 10 on Thursday, 18 on Friday and 20 today. I feel fully recovered now

Welcome to newcomers..experience the madness of this forum

24/02/2013 at 20:24
Brer- we had a 40 here yesterday. You could have done that too, nutter!
24/02/2013 at 20:48

Oh buggar, could have popped down for that!
