100 mile point to point run from Richmond to Oxford
Hi Vixx. That's good news. Fingers crossed it continues to improve!
I've been out for a few shorter runs this week, and trying to work on those dreaded planks at home! I reckon my core must be pretty weak!
When's everyone starting their training schedules? Mine's a 24 week one so towards the end of Sept. The 30 weekers must be starting now mustn't they?
Went out on the bike for a few hours today. Planning to cycle to work tomorrow and then run home. If I go the shortest route it'll be just under 7 miles, so hopefully it will be pain free. If not - it's on a bus route!
Veggieboy, it sounds like you've prepared really well, I'm sure you'll have a great run and those nerves will come in handy on the day. Glad to hear you're back running Vixx, hopefully it'll be improvement all the way from here.
Purple I know what you mean about a weak core, mine is shocking. I've done two lots of my exercises today with one more to go. I threw in a few planks and other such exercises last night - I was shaking like a leaf! Still, if it gets me running again it'll be worth it.
Sarah, which HIM are you doing? I'm quite tempted by the Full Boar middle distance as a final run out this season, but it all depends on how things go over the next couple of weeks I guess. I can't reccommend the Outlaw highly enough, it was really well organised and a great day. It's the 1st July next year and I think I'm going to go back and hopefully finish under 13 hours this time.
I've devised my training plan from a mix of a few, my shift pattern and ensuring I keep up my swimming with some cycling. It's very loose and subject to change though!
Have a good week all.
I did 9.39 veggieboy. Was quite happy with that but slowed a lot in the last 5-10 miles.
good time Steve
It was a great day, and that cake was fantastic
I'm doing North Downs Way 100 this weekend
Will be my first 100 miler. Furthest to date was L2B last year - meant to be 56 miles but ended up at 58 due to slight navigational "issues"
Just praying that it won't be too hot and won't be too wet
Got absolutely no idea of a target time as its completely unknown territory, but will be happy to finish and acstatic at anything under 28 hours.
As the course is hilly I will be running the flats/ undulations/downs and walking the uphills for as long as I can
Go Veggie Go!!
Best of luck for the weekend.
I have never run in UK (except when tryin to catch a flight to Helsinki in Heathrow...), but Thames Path 100 looks so cool that I decided to check it out. I will probably take a flight to London on Friday, and try to find a hotel in SW London with good connections to Richmond. Any suggestions?
And what about Sunday morning? If I finish the race in about 20 hours, what would be the best way to get back to the hotel? Running back to Richmond is not an option...
