have a hilly 9 miles planned for this weekend ready for the elan valley 10 Nov 19th.
checked out the Cheshire 20, sounds very hilly. Although I did a hilly 20 last year as prep for London when I put it to the forum as to ideas why I crashed and burned people were quite blunt when querying my hilly training for a flat race so don't want to make the same mistake again. May just have to do the Surrey Spitfire 20 in March then do my own 20 miles 4 weeks before.
I feel bad as I've had a packed weekend but no running - first time in months I've had the weekend off. Back to work again now, done circuit training tonight and speed session tomorrow at club. The aim is for a hilly 10 miles this weekend as have the Elan Valley 10 in November to get ready for. Just trying to plan my half marathons and a 20 miler for next year. My normal 20 mile race won't fit in timing wise. Does anyone know of one about 4 weeks before Edinburgh?
Hi all, glad I joined this thread now as had no idea re the shuttle bus.
Jonesy - I'm staying at the central travelodge too.
POD84 - welcome, from my relatively short marathon experience there's no harm in setting yourself a target however have an a/b/c plan. A will be your 3hrs 30, b sub 4, c finish;-) My first marathon I had to revert to plan c, this year I did planb so I'm hopeful that in Edinburgh I'll finally get plan a!!
