fresh back from injury and have scaled back grand thoughts of long ultras this year to more like a marathon (or two), a tri (or two) and/or a 50k.  

Looking for ideas and inspiration - what are you doing that you think would be amazing to try??

I am doing the Sussex Marathon on the 7th April. Only its third year of existing but a nice hilly, but scenic and challenging race.

Andover Parkrun 5k - Im building up to it.



I like to do a bit of parkrun tourism, so I ran that back in February. Nice event, it was a bit muddy when I did it - nearly fell over at one point.


Will you be making any rash predictions about your performance?

Hey Max's Mum, I'm doing Purbeck too. My first ever marathon. Did you do it last year?


That is definitely my A race by the way.

Edinburgh Half Marathon, its my hometown and it is downhill / flat  (so I am assured) so I am hoping to beat my Swindon and Bristol times. warming up with lots of Swindon parkruns.
