JD - have you never tried courgette and lime muffins? You haven't lived!!!
JD real runners have deserts
NR looking forward to seeing you on S4C
MM - thanks. Hoping to run without stomach and knee trouble this time round
There are some good runners doing Snowdon this year so the cameras will be busy with them I think.
Know any good runners Nutty ?
WA - I know a few and they all seem to be doing Snowdon this year! How did it go today?
Part of your five a day JD so not so bad!
Hey Jason et al ...
10k Xc in prob about 37:30. FL was 37:13 and I was ten ish places behind him. Came 68th. Went far better than I had thought, was comfortable all way round and were it not for Snowdon would have bust my bollox on it. Suffered a bit with 5mm spikes as each time we went thru the woods I lost a few places as I had no grip. Enjoyed though, I am starting to really like XC as the grass is so nice to run on.
I have got Adidas ones Jason and they work for me. Only had 5mm in yesterday. Didn't have time to switch and I paid for it a bit.
No running for me today after my two race weekend Looks like Snowdon will be cold and dry for a change,fingers crossed for you all
Trail shoes for me yesterday and they were a waste of spacemay invest in some spikes one day.
Buy them at the end of the season. Shops normally give them away !
I gave up wearing spikes years ago because of Achilles problems. I wear Walsh fell running trainers for XC now. They have quite long rubber studs along the whole length of the sole and can cope with most conditions. They are a narrow fit though and I wear a half size bigger in Walsh than I normally would with other trainers.
JOND - I wear a bigger size in spikes too. I have got fell running shoes but I need all the help I can to stay upright. I fall over fresh air!!!
MM - enjoy the rest.
JD - nice tea. Where are you staying in Llanberis? Perhaps I will catch up with you on Friday. Are you going to the usual place for tea?
Weather looks good. Quite looking forward to the race now after months of dread.....
JD - I am staying at a B and B at the finish line too. Will be at Pete's Eats too. I was too tired for liquid refreshment last year. After walking into a lamp post, I decided to call it a night.
Rediscovered the photo of the Slog the other day. Was one hell of a race!
Sub 3.10 or faster. So long as stomach holds out, should be okay.
What time you aiming for JD?
