A place to discuss running in Lancashire
hey well done rick thats a great time, despite your limited training, shame you didn't collect up those jelly babies mind lol
I am tempted to enter London, but i want to do Paris next year really...dilemma!! Quite fancy Dublin in October too.
The ballot for London opened and closed in 12 hours this morning.....
lol wow thats fast!! Guess i wont put in then this time lol oh well....
There will be other chances for people that really want to do it, plenty of club, charities and competition places up for grabs I'm sure. I think runners world usually do something for it actually.
My race number for Chester half arrived today, getting excited now.
nice one paul.give it a really good go mate, I think I may go for chester marathon in sept. I managed to get myself in London marathon ballot before it closed,after running in front of them crowds at Manchester I want more lol.
Yeah I got in the London ballot also, the second year running.
chest half, not heard of that one Paul your have to feed back how it goes and what the race is like
There is the MBNA Chester half in May and in Oct there is the Chester full marathon.
So what is everyone's running plans this weekend ?
I am away Saturday night, so ParkRun, with a run before and after tomorrow for me and then a long run Monday morning, ahead of the Blacksticks Blue 10k next Sunday.
Just training runs for me I'm tapering for next weeks Chester half.
Ah good stuff Paul, try not to over do it but have a good one. It looks like the weather will be on our side.
Just entered the Blackpool summer 10k in July with my son, so that should be fun.
I entered burnley 10k yesterday,been on velodrome track in Manchester today,that was really good riding at the top of the banks,havent stopped thinking about last weeks Manchester marathon all week, the crowds really made the day complete with their fantastic support all the way round, im going to do chester in oct but it really will have to go some to top Manchester,hope it does mind you, back out on my canal runs in the morning,good luck in chester next week paul and have a good one bud,
Cheers Rick, I'll let you know how it goes. If you running through Rishton I'll look out for ya.
I did an easy 4 miles run this morning, I'm tapering for next Sundays half marathon, so just taking it easy.
My plan for this week is 6 tonight, 6 Thursday, 3 sat and then the Black sticks Blue 10K on Sunday,
Got a course PB at ParkRun on Saturday 20:21 so, i was pleased with that. I think the previous Sundays run into the wind at Fleetwood helped that to come about.
Was a bit wet out last night!! - But the weather is predicted to be ok on Sunday, which is good news for us runners - Racing or Training.
The weather is crazy this week! I did a 8 miler on Monday that nearly melted me it was that warm. Not been out since thanks to an emergency dentist visit and a dose of antibiotics (plus the rain which added to my general feeling-sorry-for-myself state), but was pleased with a 2013 best at parkrun last week (and only 7 seconds off my PB).
Looking forward to preston parkrun's first birthday tomorrow- am feeling on the mend so going to see if I can get near last week's result again.
Hope everyone has a good weekend of racing/training
Emergency Dentisit visit!! Thats not good Lou!!
Yes you had a good run at ParkRun last week, think on the third lap, when you get to that down hill part towards the end, that's when you start building up your pace. Then go up another gear when you to the bridge near the finish line and then move up to a sprint when you get to the line of trees leading to the finish
Good luck and i hope the cakes turn out ok!!
Thanks! My kitchen currently looks like a bomb has exploded...
Yeah dentist visit wasn't good- had an infected wisdom tooth
