Well done everyone who raced (run or bike) this weekend
Have to laugh though we've had a couple of sunny days finally and we're already commenting it's too warm i'm loving it it defo beats horizontal rain and gale force winds - i expect they will be back for Sundays last long run
I've cancelled a double room saturday and sunday night this morning in Salford Quay Premier Inn if anyone still needs accommodation get in there quick. My father in law though recovering well after his op isn't going to be strong enough to come with us.
I'm with Kirsty - i ran in the sun i ran in the sun though i would never go as far as shorts (never ever not even on holiday to run in) 8 lovely miles and i'm on 43 already for the month
ooh people are setting goals thats scarey but wtf dream goal would be 4.59.59 then i guess 5.15 (cos i've only ever done 1 other flat marathon anf i finished that in 5.16) then probably the one i'll go with is have fun and finish
I followed a time plan for my first marathon but because i'm quite slow i probably only did about 16 miles as my longest run, i think it only had about 3hr30 as the max. Much easier now with my Garmin i was lost 2 years ago when the battery started to go and the charge was running out really quickly thank goodness Garmin recycled it quickly though it did cost about £80. Next time it goes kaput i'll probably have to treat myself to a shiney new one though
Karl - welcome back and well done on the 18 miler
6.4 miles with club last night half up the hill and then half back down
