2012 Run / Race
Back again for another year - anyone else in?
Too Early to start a list I guess!
Wow that is a lot!
I have planned:
White Horse Horse Half going to go for a PB on a nice flat course.
Bath Beat - LDWA type event.
Dorset Village Marathon.
a 10km in Bradford on Avon a week later to get a good time!
And then the Welsh 3000's - plan to walk it for a run maybe later in the year or next year.
Would like to do the North Downs 50 with a view to getting 2 points - but that is still a pipe dream.
Did you do Snowdon? I see it got on the top 10 races for 2011.
Nice run yesterday 14 miles with Marathon pace on the way out and 30 seconds faster per mile on the way back.
Building the milage up now for the Dorset Village and M-Chalange.
Going to be interesting with the Dorset Village a week before Marlborough, there was a weekend break between the two last year.
Are you aiming for a specific time at Dorset VM?
Yes, with that schedule of races you will either be very fit and fast or falling apart!
3:45 to 4:00 would be fine by me with hopefully a bit in the tank for the next week!
I have not, but I am about 20 miles away and it has been wet! So mud is to be expected I guess!
Forecastis rain next week and scattered showers on Saturday.
How are you looking for North Dorset, Kate?
Would be happy with that too - going to go out at 8:30's ad see what happens!
Still have to save something for Marlborough!
Good luck T-Rex at Cardiff.
Weather looks better for us on this one than earlier in the week. KateF are you still up for this one?
I am, will be slow though. Had a bit of a shocker at NDVM, nothing seemed to click and I only made 2 miles at target pace, just felt tired out. So, plenty of malt loaf today and will see how it goes. How about you, how did you fare on Sunday and how has the recovery gone?
Enjoyed NDVM - must work on self control at start as went out too fast as usual and paid for it in the last 2 miles. Still got a 13 min+ PB so cannot be unhappy.
Sorry you had a bad one, sometimes it comes together and sometimes it does not. You are doing a lot this year so maybe a shocker or two is expected?
Recovered fine and ready to go. Will see if I can do better than last year so hopefully around 6 hours or so. But not certain as may feel the marathon in my legs in the later stages.
Wow, brilliant PB, you must be really chuffed, what did you finish in? I finished in 6.30 last year, so as long as I get in under 7 and get a new mug for Sunday morning's cuppa I'll be happy.
3:47. 6:15 last year so the same would be fine. But 6 would be amazing!
New mug - last year the cuppa tasted very good out of it!
Number 107 for me so shout if you see me - as you zoom past!
Weather forecast for tomorrow is great for running! Might be a bit cold in the wind along the ridges.
I'm expecting plenty of mud, so just as well its my first time, I have no expectations.
