A place to discuss running in Lancashire
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 work......it 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.
SJ- I have pm-ed you so hopefully it has worked!
Hey penguingirl, i can read your messages but every time i sent you one, it says that i have not wrote a message argh!!!!!!!!!
Send me your No. and i'll text you
thanks got it!!!
My race number is 6700 for the liverpool HM on Sunday, if anyone else is doing it wants to say hiiiiiiiii
I only ran once during the week and it was last night, six miles. As ive just been so busy!!
Good luck to everyone doing a race this weekend.
weather says cloudy at the moment, lets hope it stays that way!!
or maybe gets better
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.
My official time is out, 01:34:58.......a PB by just 2 seconds, I mean a PB by a 2 massive seconds!!!!
top show sjpc14 and penguingirl. fantastic running. sounds like you had a really good day there.i always seem to pick not so good races lol. my biking was 43 miles in total. with very large climbs over bacup moor then over to pendle hill.had to ride through a massive snow storm over bacup moor, im going to get some running in this week before last bikeing before my bike race end of month then its a hm at blackpool again week after bike ride.and to think it all started abt 15 month ago to lose a bit of belly lol. anyway good running sj and penguingirl,
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.
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
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
