Had a great, but bloody tough, run over wiswell moor to the nick o'pendle on saturday.  The wind and the snow made it tough going but beautiful views.  Wimped out goinng over Pendle though!

How was everyone elses runs this weekend?

Been up pendle today. Gale force winds made it an adventure! At the trig point when waiting for some back runners we had to lay flat to the ground as the wind was so strong.

Pendle in a blizzard is a scary experience mattl, nearly lost at least 1 child up there!

I dd the Goal-den girls 10k in Blackpool, went really well for the first 5.5 miles as I was running second to my superfast team mate but then the wheels really fell off in the shape of the recurring trapped sciatic nerve which gives me a complete dead leg, right down to my toes.

Finished 4th, time a bit rubbish but now it turns out that the race was actually 6.6 miles due to a course marking error so the time's not so bad now.

Have been to the docs this morning, he wants an MRI scan on my back and has given me some strong anti inflammatorys. Boston Marathon 3 weeks today so hoping for some miraculous cure now.

lol matt you crazy guy!! thats some wind you had!!

Nicola, its true you really do seem to be racing every week! Finishing 4th though, with injury thats very impressive. Well done you. Although, i hope things calm down in time for Boston (btw well done on getting in that) Just do nothing at all for one week. You should be fit enough to complete the race by now any way, 3 weeks before being tapering time. Then in a weeks time see if you can manage 2 miles pain free.

Ive been lazy and not run since Liverpool HM - But ive entered the blacksticks blue 10k, so looking forward to that. Not sure what April race to do yet. Torn between the Catforth 7 and the Fleetwood 10.

Hi All,
Newbie to forum,earlier this month I did silverstone half marathon in 2hrs 2mins, not bad for a 54 yr old in his first race I think. I'm now in training for the Chester half in May, hoping for a sub 2 hour. I do all my running round Rishton and Blackburn area 4 days a week and do some cycling.
01/04/2013 at 19:29

Hey rick well done on your mega cycle!!!!! And good luck for Sunday goodness me, your another one that never stops hey!!



04/04/2013 at 12:18

Gosh you lot all make me feel very lazy! Well done Rick, at least you had the good weather for it and Bowland is lovely (although it's been a while since I went up that way).

Well done Paul on your first HM- I am half your age (well I will be after my birthday next week) and 2 HMs in you are 3 mins faster than me, so definitely a time to be proud of.

Hope everyone's getting out and enjoying the sunshine- I've not been out since parkrun but hopefully will do a middle-length run tomorrow and parkrun again on Saturday, although it'll probably be slow as I'm booked in to give blood tonight.

Still no running but seeing a neurosurgeon on Saturday, hope he has his magic wand ready! Flying out to Boston in 7 days
