100 mile point to point run from Richmond to Oxford
Here's a video I found from the Thames path 50
Not sure I'd fancy doing another 90 miles after this! Only managed 6 miles so far this week (tuesday) but going to try and squeeze a few in tonight and tomorrow, then got a 15k walk/pub crawl in the shire on saturday. I'd like to say i'll do some on sunday but i suspect if i do it'll be short and a run/walk!
Hi KP. Yes, I'm def going to have to practice in the snow if we get any!
Can anyone reccommend a particular type of off road shoe that is particularly good for grip? I haven't got much experience of them, as I have a pair but they are really in betweeners for runs that incorporate both road and off. In the 3 years I've been running I've mainly stuck to the roads. I have moved to Swanage in Dorset now though, and it's so beautiful, I just love to get onto those coastal paths!!
Hi Mr F. Yes I did one of my trainig runs for my ultra earlier this year along Bournemouth prom to Hengitsbury Head and back. Been living here a year now, and feel like the luckiest girl alive. Regular club runs take us to Corfe castle, Kimmeridge,up to Old Harry Rocks (which is a 3 mile run from my house) or along the Jurassic coast to dancing ledge etc. Have to make the most of it!!
Enjoy your holiday next week!
I'm going to have a look at trail shoes and see if I can persuade my OH that I need some to do my winter training in
How the hell did you manage with all that water on your 50 miler? And how did you know what was flooding and what was deep river water??
Very jealous of you living there
As to shoes, ionv8's are great but come up a bit narrow for some people- I've got roclite 315, 319 and 320 and love them all
But most of my trail running I do in Adidas Supernova Riots which have excellent grip and a fair amount of cushioning which I find I need if there is up to 15% on road/pavement
Thanks for the shoe advice Veggie..I'll take a list in to the shop when I go!!
MrF thanks for emailing the photo of the flooding...that's one way to ice your legs! Oohh please don't let us have floods!
Kanadias are a very different shoe
The Riots have more cushioning and the sole is continental rubber which is much harder wearing
Hi.I did the Swanage Half marathon last weekend and I've got 'The Beast 'but not till the 4th September. Never done that one before, but I think it sounds dreadful! Anyone been up Houns Tout before? If you have you'll know what I mean as thats part of the race. Its 13 miles off road. Ive run in that area before and walked up Houns tout...hmmm should be interesting!
Mr F, hope you're managing to hold that niggling knee off! You don't want to be hobbling around during your hols next week!
Hi Mr F, Did 19m today, 13m lsr, then ran the local 10k race after it, nice to mix up the paces. Next one for me will be the Nottingham Marathon 11th sept ( nice course, looking forward to that one) think there are a few on the thread doing this one. Any one made any disisions on training plans yet?
