Cool Angela, a thoughtful approach and execution, still on my bucket list this one, maybe I should do a 12 hour version first.
I mentioned neural issues, well hey ho it was lower right leg 2 years ago, quads same side last year, now I have apparent piriformis syndrome/sciatica on the same side, all striking at the same time of year - I do have some good exercises to do but it's mega limiting is this, everything is slower and a lot more work.
They've added a 10 miler to the York marathon [festival, rather than the mara itself you may be glad to learn], hope they know what they are doing.
Wow Malcs what a killer park run PB! That is one annihilation. And the TR24 on top is at the other end of the scale - you must be fully trained up and ready for all eventualities. Or mashed.
Well done Angela & Sarah, amazing performance there, would love to know how you played it, whether by ear or via a structured plan...
I'm going to be up in York the weekend that includes 15 August - remember hobbling round parkrun with you two when I had my neural issues.
Nice win SK!
I did the back to the stadium 10K Sunday week ago, only came 11th for age [out of 206], found it hard to push. It was bunged and needless to say I had picked up a hamstring tweak from Speedflex so was a tad compromised, hilly course though, they found em all, and sent us round the cycle circuit too - what a blast to finish on the track.
Have just spent a further 3 days in said stadium, can't stay away whatever the weather, so had to run my 17 miler yesterday early, this after friend sof my brother tried to come for dinner Saturday night.
When I say tried, one of them fell over in my road and dislocated his finger, so they all went to A&E, finally pitching up at 10:30pm aaargh
Getting excited for York now, must avoid freak accidents, particularly at camp, which starts next week for 3 weeks of fun, we have BMX 2 days a week this time, yey!
I called VMLM today & they accepted me on the spot for peace of mind and had a chat with cool dud on the phone - only problem now being I can't get my entry confirmed on the system which wasn't liing my choice of club, indeed would only proceed if I chose *no club*, then gave me a message about needing to enable cookies which made no sense [to me at least].
