Who's doing what this weekend? I've got Bog and Bryn 20K tomorrow. 1700' ascent and plenty of mud.
May yet fit in a surprise unplanned marathon to replace SNOD (if anything can replace it ...) Looking into it.
Steady 18 miles in chiily sunshine for me. TRex, Portsmouth on Dec 23rd still have a few places I believe. Don't know if that is any good to you.
TR40 and Panad, are you joining me for annual pilgrimage to Conwy Half?
wish I could Brer, but no go for me this year You could join me and TR40 at excalibur on 23rd March though
Brer See you at Conwy matey Just entered
Back again! Plan was to do a 4m warm up then 4m tempo and 1m warm down. Did the 4m warm up before deciding to wait a bit longer before introducing speed again. legs feeling good, but don't want to push it after October's hammering Think I'll do 12 easy tomorrow
Hey TR40,brilliant stuff. Am going to attempt to manage it without getting legged up this time, first time I've ended a race with blood streaming down my leg and lumps of gravel embedded in wound.
Er Panad, I would love to do it but I have an appointment with the queen in London the following month which is going to cost a small fortune. First and last VLM for me I think.
JD...speed work...thud!!! My 18 miler was a 3 hr affair, no speed involved there. I cannot believe that Snod was only a week ago.Happy daze.....
That must mean only 51 weeks to go? Bring it on.
brer - can't make 23/12. Several hours of carol playing lined up that day - a marathon of a different sort.
Lovely unexpected run for me this morning, cold and sunny - perfect - with clear views across to the mountains (which look even better with snow on their tops ) Enjoy bog&bryn TRex and Laudy Brer - Hope you're going to buy a posh frock and practice your curtseys ready for April
Survived in one piece and without falling over (unlike my other half!) but legs obviously weren't fully recovered from last week as found it really tough and pretty painful in places!
Really cracking run, I really enjoyed it The course was a real quagmire due to all the rain so it definitely lived up to the name, although Bog and Stile may have been more appropriate as there were millions of sodding things I will leave the full race review to T Rex as it will be a far more entertaining read than I could possibly manage.
Great bunch of runners, really friendly atomsphere, had a nice chat with a few others who did SNOD last week. Big thumbs up from me, how did you find it T Rex? Only downside was the lack of showers for the ladies Trying to wash that much mud off in a sink with cold water was not much fun, especially when you come out to find the men had a nice hot shower!!!
Oh, how cold is it?
Beautiful stretch of coastal walking along there Pete, hope you overtook him!!
Just booked Christmas hols post Portsmouth marathon. I nearly booked a Romany caravan but then noticed you don't have any toilet/washing facilities. So, a rural retreat with log burner and full cleansing facilities available somewhere near Brighton is the destination
Panad, when the queen buys a new dress for me and practises her curtsies back then I'll respond
