I did parkrun yesterday which was good, although I got a stitch again which was annoying so it slowed me right down. I'm hoping to get a 7 or 8 miler in this evening, but we'll see- it might be postponed until tomorrow. And then I'll be resting up until Liverpool.

I'm a bit gutted because I've seen there's a HM in Southport in July which as the town I grew up in I would have liked to do, but I have 4 exams 2 weeks before it so don't think I can handle training on top of revision! Maybe one for next year though.

31 mile bike ride rick!!!! Damn thats good.

Sorry about your stitch Lou, not sure anyone has a real solution to them, ive heard putting pressure on the area helps.....

And in regards to Soutport, yes put your exams first


Been trying to PM you about Sunday but for some reason it wont might be me....

I did the Stan Bradshaw Round on Pendle last Saturday which is a fantastic event (for all of £4) fells and some steep climbs in snow and dodgy visibility, brilliant!

Looking forward to Liverpool on Sunday, good luck penguin girl, hope you have a great race.

hey your at liverpool too Nicola ?

that sounds like a good event for just £4 when most races costs are shooting up

Gosh Nicola, you seem to have a race on most weekends! Good luck on Sunday, let's hope the weather isn't too bad for us.

How did everyone's races and biking go ?

I did Liverpool half marathon this morning and i can confirm that myself and penguin girl completed the race. It was a good route, some narrow parts mind you, but a good crowed turned out and the weather held.

Not sure about my official time, but my watch said 1:35:01, which is just outside a PB, so I'm satisfied with whatever the result as my last HM time was around 1hr42.

Only negatives, perhaps they needed more marshals as runners were running all over the show and also the parking. On the official race pamphlet, one of suggested car parks were advertised as being £2.50 all day. However, it turned out this was only after 9am and as the race started at 9am no runners could actually park at that rate.

But saying that, I'm glad i did it, it was a good event and I enjoyed it.

17/03/2013 at 15:48

My official time is out, 01:34:58.......a PB by just 2 seconds, I mean a PB by a 2 massive seconds!!!!

17/03/2013 at 18:05
That's great SJ! A PB is still a PB, no matter by how much. Makes my 4 min 9 sec PB seem a bit keen.

Seriously tho, I had a great morning. I thought the route was nice and varied although a few obstacles at times and the cobbles nearly killed me. Plus we were so lucky with the weather, I don't think we could have asked for better. Big thanks to SJ's dad and friend who were fantastic at pacing me, and they really kept me going- particularly for the last few miles when I was struggling (and tantrumming slightly).

I'm now shattered as my OH dragged me out on a muddy walk as he wanted to test his new walking boots, I thought he was going to have to carry me home at one point!

Hope everyone else had a good Sunday!

well done Lou, 4 minutes off is fantastic, i thought thats what you meant at the race, but wasnt sure he he - But 4 mins off its brilliant!! - And yes the cobbles and obstacles made for an interesting race he he

The walk will help you remover i bet, they do say to keep moving. Saying that, ive done nothing all day!!! And yes my dad and friend john, said you helped them too. I think it helped you were all at the same level.

Thanks Rick and well done on another massive bike ride!! I saw all the snow on the hills when we were driving home! Crazy, its March!! And well done on the weight loss, ive always imagined that to be hard going.

Great day out at Liverpool half, really like the new start, seemed very well organised. Chuffed to bits to finish in 1:33:07 which was 4.5 minutes better than last years time and a pb by 35 secs. Really emotional watching my fellow runners cross the line, some amazing costumes! Well done everyone, we'll sleep tonight!
18/03/2013 at 16:43

Wow that's a great time Nicola two people with improvements by 4 minutes!!! And three PBs, a good day out for the Lancashire Forum lot.

And there was some great costumes out there he he

Well done again



19/03/2013 at 14:49

Wow, that's a great time Nicola- well done.

Hoep everyone's legs were better than mine. SJ, I was cursing your dad and John for making me run so quick as yesterday I could barely walk because of my hamstrings, but thankfully today they are much better! Might go and get my new trainers from sweatshop on Thursday to take on my hols with me next week
