discussion's about this years Lochaber Marathon
One weather site says showers and thunderstorms for next sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- however the temp forecast is up to 8 degrees, 65% chance rain, but wind looks less........................it might be OK, the forcast hasbeen dreadful 1 week out each year I've done it, only for the day itself to be bright, crisp, and just right temp -wise ( or evn a little too hot!).
I'm seizing up from too much sitting at the 'puter- sure it's much worse for me than r*nning!
Crisp, 8 degrees and no wind please.My right big toe and the one next to it have been rubbing together and the skin is hanging off both. Ouch!! Need to get some decent plasters, and pain killers, for Sunday.
NEAMAC - I daren't check my average weekly average. I would pull out now if I did....
It will be intersting to see how my run compares with Berlin, when I religiously followed a training plan. I suspect I may become aquainted with the 'wall' this time.
Sunday Fort William on Metcheck
5C, feels like 1C, 1mm rain light overcast. wind 12mph Northerly. If that holds then less pleasant than last year but a whole lot better for running in.
Just getting the 'have I trained enough paranoia'
Good luck everyone, see you Sunday.
Just back from a week's hols on Mull - snow on the hills (and I hadn't taken my crampons or ice axe!).
Glad to hear everyone is suffering from 'taperitiis'. 12 miles at MP for me last Sunday - no running at all while on Mull but a couple of long hill days (and putting that down as 'equivalent miles').
I forecast that there will be weather in Fort William on Sunday and that it probably won't be hot. Seriously I don't fancy hypothermia, haven't been training wearing a Polartec fleece and don't fancy trying it for the first time on Sunday.
Weather looking pretty good, Might even have a slight tail wind on the way back. Good luck to you all and hopefully see you at the finish line.
Hi- am up and raring to go- just got to pop in to work ,then driving up the road. Weather looks hopeful now. Spent the whole of the last week hiding from alll the people with work with some horrible viral thingy..........think I've avoided it, but every slight thing makes me think I'm about to get sick!!!
Fingers crossed for all those who've actually made it to the start line ( or nearly...........).
See you there!
Thanks Goldeagle. Hope you are on the mend.
2 mile jog completed. A few niggles from my troublesome calf, and a few sniffles this morning - hopefully just mind games. Heading off to Fort William now to find a big screen to watch the Dandy Dons thump Hibs in the Scottish Cup Semi Final. 'Come on Ye Reds!'. When they win, it's going to be really hard to resist a beer. But I will....
