Congratulations to our Ikle she looks so pretty and happy in the Facebook pics.
Just under 4:19 at Frankfurt which is a relief as that's my Pen F sorted for Comrades. Hard work though. But best time I've done in 20 months!
There was a bloke getting chest compressions and oxygen that we passed in the early section - nothing on the news but that sort of thing rarely goes well (though people did remind me about Salazar and Muamba ). Very sobering.
Frankfurt OK but Abo-flat not Berlin or Dutch flat.
Hello, I freqented this thread leading up to the Manchester 2013 marathon, which, for reasons I won't bother going into now became for me, the Milton Keynes 2013 marathon.
Frustratingly I missed my target for a sub 4:00 time by 19 minutes, which I was gutted by, but it was still a 49 minute PB, so progress for me. I'm going to enter the 2014 Manchester marathon and have another crack and sub4, so will be checking in here with you good people, and taking some encouragement from your efforts, and occasionally updating you on my own.
After a bit of an injury layoff this summer, I'm back to running about 30 miles per week. I'm going to be following an 18 week training plan for manchester, so have another 5 weeks to get into shape before that starts, which i'm doing by getting in some slow miles, as well as cycling most days to/from work.
Hello AgentGinger good to see you. Congrats on your latest Mara .. Any Mara medal is a great medal.
Fido ... Did not know you were doing Frankfurt ... Need to focus on a spring Mara .. What is there apart from London and Brighton that may still have some spaces???? Any ideas? I need some inspiration......
FIDO- Where did that come from. Not happy now Im going to have to go back Only kiding saw a lot of posts from you on the thread but did not realise you were going back.
Susan- Stratford upon avon is good. 2 laps and 1 hill but we made a weekend of it
Is it around the same sort of time? Thanks Martin will have a look
Thanks for that FRC - will take a butchers.
Susan - I was thinking Manchester. For you I mean, not me.
When is it though .. Earlier the better .. You know me and heat!!
Yes Fabo Wabo and Fantido Fido !! Awesome running.
and PB MRS IKLE you are all awesome.. Feel like it's been a while since I did any thing amazing, if ever.
Winter blues, mid life crisis, who knows what ... Laugh a minute round mine
Ah, thanks FRC will look into that. April 6 th sounds good ...
WT fancy Manchester with me in April?? Not fast though
Welcome back Agent Ginger.
Fido - great run at Frankfurt.
Susan - a lot of people from our club have done manchester - they all said it was a fast course. In 2012 my mate almost got hypothermia whilst running it as it persisted down with freezing rain most of the way (Tutu di it that year too and got a PB). I think it was better weather this year but still coolish? You could always join me and Martin in Greece - same weekend as Manchester...
That's a lovely thought Wendy but ... Greece sounds just a tad warm ,,
will def look at Manchester
The first weekend in April should be quite pleasant - start in the low teens and finish in the higher teens - so here's hoping in 2014 they don't have unseasonably warm weatherlike they did last year. The race is a couple of weeks earlier this year so am hoping it will definitely be cooler. I have been in Greece in April in previous years when I have needed thermals at night!
Would love to run another marathon but the way things are going at the moment it'd take me about 5 hours!
Welcome back AgentGinger!
Who's seen Ikle's excellent wedding footwear?
hen ikle looks gorgeous doesn't she?
Snowdonia was amazing! Going back next year I just have to
And to the Ultra runners here, I may well do one of them in January as well...
hope you are all well
don't think I will do London again
Wabo, did you do Snowdon with a gang of club mates? What did you like about it so much? Have heard great things.
Cheesy grins all round reading your comments. From Mrs.
