I could do 6 miles in under an hour but maybe best to ease in and start off with jog scotland as you say - the times will suit me better - its a loooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnggggggg story but I have a 23 month old and a 5 month old and another half who works in Edinburgh so finding someone to take the kids for 6.15 or so is going to be a challenge and when I go back to work it will be even more hectic!! I have contacted jogscotland and they have been very very friendly and I am going to go not next wed (my beloved 10K will be then) but the wed after.
Good luck with black rock 5!!!! My ex-hubby is really hacked off cos he has trained for it and left his application too late so he is having to go along and watch his dad and big brother run it knowing he could whoop both their behinds!! I didnt realise it was 700 capacity - might have to give it a bash next year but I know the beach run is a killer on the legs! Lovely lovely night for the run.
Thanks for the advice and I will let you know how you get on with jogscotland.
Nice one Mickymoomoo. Aw to cutsie wee kiddies
I cannot recommend the Black Rock 5 highly enough. It was absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Yeah it was hard going, the sand was hard going, the sea was just fantastic and the killer hill at the end was hilarious Oh boy I'm so hyper now
Well I don't actually know Mickymoomoo as I forgot my watch - doh! I think it was around 40mins tho which I'm happy enough with as it was quite a challenging course (4.5 miles total).
Now who has pinched the sun???
Thats a fantastic time it is a tough course and that hill at the end is plain old nasty!
Yes Mr Sun please come back! Meant to be a nice warm bank holiday Monday.
going to do the west lothian half tomorrow
Back from Cape Wrath
Wow, that was amazing, hard, but amazing.
I completed all events in times that I was happy with and probably better than I expected.
Plus 3 visits to cocoa mountain
Well done FFB! You've now got a PB for a marathon that includes a boat trip...
Thats only a few visits to cocoa mountain and you had to keep energy up, very restrained - did you bring some back for the rest of us?
At last, the thread can return to normal, it has been soooooooo quiet here for the last week, we tried, but obviously just weren't up to the job
I had not realised that you were not doing the marathon until I realised that I had not see you. I figured out that as I had been on the ferry just asfter 7, I will have seen all the other runners in one direction or the other. Did LD miss it too as I don't remember seeing him either.
Good thought RJ - a course PB and PB for a marathon with a ferry crossing. Mind you if I had not had a bad patch at about 15 miles I might have come close to a PB. Oh well, I will just have to find another marathon to do. I am starting to think that Loch Ness might be an option especially as that is where I got my marathon PB.
WOW is all I can say! What a week.
And the hills were totally !!!!!!!!
What a week..........oh I said that already .
I want to live in Durness.......I spoke to a lot of folk during the week who had 'gone bush' (as we used to call it in Orkney) and moved up there after doing CW.......ahhhh the wilderness is calling a Tiger home .
More from me tommorrow...Tigers are knackered but very happy .
