Opens the door to the 2014 Marathon Thread and turns on the light, welcome everyone.
Hi NP..... Here's to some good marathons come the spring.....look forward to sharing experience with you all...
A shinny new thread, I'm looking forward to following everyone's marathon journeys in 2014
Bit early aren't you No Pain?
Here's to a great 2014 for us all! So pleased that you have done the honours again NP.
No idea which route we'll take to the mast tomorrow Stewart, the last time I was there it was dark. Some of the girls are going at 11am (same time as the Hill Runners) but the Harriers group is midday. I'll be early as things to do later.
Might dip my toes into this one if that's ok. Doing London.
Hi guys. I'll be doing more running this year than last year's 132 miles. Not sure about which races I'm doing however know the Hook 2.5 mile is definitely on the list along with Victory 10k.
Good luck. Hope the training goes well.
Hi all, happy new year to everyone, so what marathon is everyone doing this year? I'm doing the Edinburgh in the spring as my first ever and if that goes well i hope to do Bornemouth in the autum. No runs as of yet as i have a touch of runners knee and am on enforced rest until at least monday .
Just entered for Snowdonia again
Happy New Year everyone
(no running today as on call and still not got rid of cold)
last year was a bit rubbish as it took me all year to get over a knee injury. Seems to be holding up though so I am doing Llanelli in April and hopefully York in the autumn. Haven't managed to actually arrive at the start line of a marathon yet so here's hoping I do this year!
Happy New Year all !
Welcome back mathschick - I hope this year is a better one for you
NP - what races have you got planned?
I kicked off the new year with 1m w/up, 2 x 2.5m at marathon heart rate, then 2m cool down.
I am doing Manchester in April. Only 13.5 weeks left and no longs runs done yet…. I have some catching up to do.
Nice start to the year Teknik.
Mathschick - that the hardest part - getting to the start line fit !!
Todays run was wet, cold and muddy. ran parkrun with Lulu the Labrador and just finished bathing her. She loved it - and I am now loving my bacon sandwich !!! 9 Miles in total including running there !!!
I reckon for the first one I am going to concentrate on run/walk just to make sure I don't knacker my knee again and then take it from there. Hopefully by the autumn I can run the whole thing, but I would rather complete with a run/walk than not make it at all.
Welcome all new folks to the marathon thread. VLM for me.
Nice session to kick off the year Teknik.
AGF one of our group was a black lab, the perfect running companion!
Ran to the mast this morning, 11.3 miles in total at a nice, sociable chatting pace. Christmas cake and Maltesers at the top, whisky for some then back down the same way (Stewart, ran up past Dossers and the zig zag path and very muddy!) The perfect morning for a run!
So that I know the sort of 'talent' here, what marathon pbs and/or targets do people have? I will be slow!
paul - I have no talent at all, target is to finish in one piece! It will be slow...
Gym and half mile swim for me to start the year. Didn't realise it's only 13.5 weeks til marathon time!
SG, Paul welcome to the new thread the guys here are great
Fiona, well done with the 11 miles today, is there still a fallen tree on the zigzag section? It was like a river up there the other week
SM, not long until we are pounding along the Mallaig road, the weeks are flying by, nice swim and gym session
Mace, you haven't had much luck with the runs this week, we have been very lucky with avoiding the worst of the bad weather
AGF, great start to the year, wish I had a bacon sandwich Nice 9 mile run today too
Tek, nice interval session earlier
Started 2014 with a 14 mile MLR, first 5 on my own and then 7 with JS, great way to kick start the new year
